What is Your Why?

Keeping up will run you dry. It’ll run you ragged. And there will always be someone to keep up with no matter what you’ve done, what you have, or who you are. So the only way to win the game of keeping up, is to stop keeping up entirely. Instead, create, pursue, and desire from a place that matters most to you and only you. Maxi

How many times have you done something or gotten something because other people had it and said it was worth having?

How many times have you gone somewhere because it was the "in" place to be?

Do you ask yourself the reasons?

I have learnt that if the reason is to be popular, keep up, show your worth chances are it will be a hollow or shallow experience that keeps us on the treadmill of going, doing, and acquiring.

If we do something, have something, go somewhere because we want to, a soul calling, an intuitive response, the feeling is so much deeper

Many times we are on auto pilot and it is easier to follow the crowd rather than deal with our own calling- it is our calling so we alone will hear it, there may not be many people who understand,whether it is small or huge

It takes courage to go against the grain but trust me it is well worth it.

Follow Your Heart

Follow Your Intuition

Follow Your Purpose

you will be better off for it
