“The only journey is the one within.” Rainer Maria Rilke
A man I knew always said “self-awareness is a lost art”. We don’t take enough time out to know who we are or what we believe in. We question ourselves so much that we’re no longer certain of what we want.
I’ve been thinking about this Tiny Buddha article I read last week about fulfillment. I started asking myself some of the questions listed in the article and I feel like I’ve gotten so much clarity.
“The key is to become aware if you are searching for something outside of yourself in order to feel better about yourself within.”
You will always be unhappy or feel unfulfilled if you’re searching for anything outwardly. A job, security, love, stability, friendship. You can have all of it but if you are not inwardly joyful, all of your accomplishments and desires will only be temporary contentment. Happiness is an inside job.
Rejoice for the small progress.
