The only reason we lose ourselves is when we listen to someone or something else and hold their values higher than our own.

If we nurtured our inner voice and wisdom and actually listened to her, we would be okay.

It doesn’t mean that all of life’s problems would disappear.

It doesn’t mean that we have to do it all alone.

It doesn’t mean that we will do things perfectly.

It does mean that when problems appear, we are trusting ourselves to solve the problem whether we look for answers within or from others.

It does mean that when we make choices, we do so in a self-centered way.

It does mean that when we make mistakes or when things shake our confidence, we will continue to trust ourselves.

If you’re feeling a bit like you’ve lost yourself, take a moment to nurture your inner voice and wisdom. She’s always been there waiting to be found.
