˜ "My dream is to feel fully fulfilled. I'm a therapist and I just graduated a year and a half ago, so still figuring out exactly what my niche is going to be. There are certain things I do that make me super fulfilled and positive so I guess continuing to hone in on that and feeling fulfilled in every area of my life.
Working with other people has helped me personally because it makes me practice what I preach. I've gotten really into mindfulness, meditation, gratitude and things like that, which I've always kind of knew about, but would never make the time for. Now I'm in this place where I'm telling other people to do this and I'm not doing it for myself so I need to stop being lazy or whatever it is that's holding me back from that. This and connecting with other people emotionally has helped me learn a lot about myself.
Vulnerability is the key ingredient to getting what we want like connection, love, anything, but it can be so scary and it's something I sometimes struggle with. I'm reading this because it's like, okay, we need to do this thing and we are going to hit bumps, fail and fall down, but you need to keep doing it otherwise you give up on valuable parts of life." ˜
