Searching Within You!

One night in Costa Rica my thoughts were every where as I swung back and forth in my hammock. I reflected on my day and how I wished I had a few more days at the lovely bungalow at Rancho Margot. My thoughts went from what I did that day, when will I visit the lovely Costa Rica again, my love life, my career, family, and my future. My thoughts started racing so much that I placed them on paper, and I now I want to share them with you…

Sometimes in life we tend to go searching for things or people to fill a void; however, filling our void with the wrong things or people can be toxic. One’s void will only be filled when there is an understanding of oneself, which is very important.

It’s important to search within yourself so you can understand and know YOU better. When you are able to search within yourself, you get to know your fears, your likes, dislikes, your tolerance level, strengths, weaknesses, desires and a lot more.

Using myself as a example, at one point in my life I was trying to fill a void through other people, but I was finding myself bringing toxic energy into my life. Therefore, I started focusing on me and searching within myself to figure out what really drives me. I started stepping outside of my comfort zone in order to find what I was missing. At one point, I thought I needed love and support from a lover, but the true desire was more of self- love and respect for myself.

Being able to find exactly what is missing can come from doing more things one enjoys or aiming towards one’s goals. When I personally started searching within myself and doing more things that dealt with traveling, exercise, writing, teaching, and helping others develop in areas he or she desires, I started to fill my glass. You know, the glass people always try to fill so they can have a glass to pour from. You know like the quote, “you can’t pour from an empty glass.” I do believe everything takes time. When it comes to searching within and understanding one self, it takes as much patience as it would when you’re trying to accomplish a goal or getting to know someone new.

Having patience requires anyone to continue to learn and understand themselves and the things around them. Searching within will not just give a better understanding of self, but it will drive the self-love that’s WITHIN!

 

What’s Motivating African Americans To Entrepreneurship!

Numerous people will probably agree with me when I say 2020 has been a year of uncertainty. Countless people lost their jobs when the world went into a pandemic due to COVID-19. When cities and states started locking down, some people didn’t know where their next income source would come from; as a result many developed their own businesses. People invested their money into stocks, bonds, startups, and investments that allow for the dollar to increase. Several African Americans have been motivated to start their own business in light of the pandemic.

“Everything will fall into place when you stop being comfortable in one place!”

Being in a comfort zone makes it hard for you to move forward and progress in the things you’re going after. A lot of the time people are stuck in comfort zones because they are afraid of the unknown! However, the unknown can take you beyond your current level! You have to be willing and motivated to go hard for what you want.

Journi’s Motivation

When you start letting go of things that’s hindering you from moving forward you will feel better within! Access to locked doors and new destinations will be granted during the process.

Sometimes things will happen when you least expect them to: sometimes good, sometimes bad.

What really matters is how you handle yourself when the unexpected happens.

Believe it or not you can be blocking your own happiness and blessings in life. You will miss out on a lot in life if you don’t let go of things that’s constantly pulling you down, taking you back to old places, and experiencing the same pain over and over.

Life is too short and there’s so much to experience!

Start enjoying life’s Journey!
