You must strive to find your own voice, because the longer you wait to begin, the less likely you are to find it at all.
This quote from one of the most popular movie (Dead Poets Society, featuring Robin Williams) is what drives me every day.
In today’s world, we are bombarded with information, images, and requests. We have to solve small and big problems, every single day. Sometimes we have to deal with difficult situations, and we feel emotionally tired. In this scenario, the first thing that we lose is ourselves.
Forgetting yourself is the worst thing you can do to yourself and to your life. You are worthy, much more than you could imagine. You can make a big difference in this world. And finding your voice is one of the most important steps to make this difference. It’s not easy, and it’s not immediate, but it’s worthwhile.
When you feel that you’re sick of everything, take five minutes of your time. Find a place to stay quiet and calm. Close your eyes and listen to your breath. If thoughts come, observe them without judging, and keep focused on your breath as long as you can. You’ll see how powerful it is.
Then, open your eyes and come back to your everyday life. You may not feel immediately the advantage of this practise, but you will be far more connected with your inside world. Results take time and persistence.
So, when you are tired and sick, stop doing what you are doing, and find a connection with your inner space. If you think it’s not worth the effort, you’re terribly wrong. Strive to find your voice. Be present, connected, and focused.
