knowing what you want

After we start taking steps to achieving our dreams, we have to look deeper into ourselves.



Fill in the boxes to help keep you heading towards your dreams – wishes!



Take some time with this, but also do not leave things undecided and just remain undiscovered.

For me, wishes I’ve made is to be a successful business woman. I wish to help as many other people as I can. Inspire others.

Wishes I will make is to continue to learn and grow along my new path of life. Not be afraid of change, as change can be good.

Wishes I have not even admitted yet, are that I deserve to be happy and successful.

I struggle with admitting that I am happy or that I deserve happiness.

I get easily confused with my emotions sometimes that I tend to keep them bottled up inside. Thinking one day I will “get to them” and figure it out.

But it never happens.

I just keep going through my life…gaining new emotions that need to be figured out.

Admitting what I want in life is hard for me. As I feel like I am being selfish, or rude.  But I trying hard to take this #findingME series as my approach to facing my emotions and truly finding what I want with my life.

Now that I know I want more big things with my life and career, I am  learning to open up to happiness more….slowly.

I am taking these steps to help me get my wishes:

1. Taking online classes and studying when I can to further educate myself in areas that interest me. (web design, photography, health, fitness)

2. Doing this #findingME series is a BIG fear as I am learning to open up more.

3. Planning my future now so I can continue to enjoy life…to let go of worrying about the unknown.

I am learning to be open, to learn, and grow through every situation and circumstances. I am not always perfect at not letting things “get to me” or stressing too much. But overall have better sense of calmness. Doing more yoga helps too!

A note to leave today with – learn as we go, like a child. Be more spontaneous and natural. Stay alive. Do not become dull.  And remember to stop and see the beauty all around you!

    I am so grateful for this series. I am currently in a part of my life where I am also trying to find myself. I have been going through the motions for the past few years, holding on to a lot of pain from a bad relationship, in addition to my own confidence issues. This post is another perspective on how to sort through everything. Thank you :)

    What a beautiful post Michelle. I can relate to everything you have written and struggle with many of the same things you do but am also learning to enjoy the process of finding out what I really want out of life! xo

  6. I love this series so much. I have been working on learning to “like” things about myself. This quote from Jennifer Aniston has me wondering what I actually LOVE about myself. I want to truly have that relationship with myself.

    Keep up with the great series! :)
