Be Authentically You | Note 200
What am I doing with my life?
I thought a lot about what I would do for the 200th episode of the Sincerely HER Podcast. I pondered whether I should do a best of episode or do something like I did with the Note 100 of the Sincerely HER Podcast, where I provided almost 100 positive affirmations.
After much consideration, I realized I wanted to show up and talk about my journey to 200 podcasts note. Let me start by saying it was not easy. I can’t say that self-doubt got me. However, I asked myself what’s the point. Why should I pour so much of my time into this podcast?
I’ve even asked that dreaded question, what am I doing with my life? I often ask myself that. I love helping people. I love serving. But sometimes, I can’t help but think something is missing. I should be someplace else. I’m destined for greater things.
Shedding some insight into who I am, I’m single, no kids, a tiny family. It’s just my mom and me. And my closest friends are scattered around the world. I’m not lonely, but I do crave the thrill of meeting strangers in exotic countries.
Before the pandemic, my life was all about seeing the world. Now, I’m home on my computer way more than I want to be, and I’m moving slower on accomplishing some goals I set for myself. I’m thankful, though. No complaints.
On any day, if you ask me how I’m doing, I’ll respond with FANTASTIC! Being fantastic is the only way I want to be, so I rarely entertain anything outside of that. I’m happy way more than I am ever sad.
I like me. I like the direction my life is going in. Often, it’s a slow journey, but it’s a journey. Through it all, I’ll continue to write myself notes to remind myself it’s okay. I can, and I am.
Thanks for joining me on this journey. Have a wonderful day, and I look forward to providing more bite-sized motivational notes to you in the future.
