Aspire To Inspire Before You Expire!

Recently I have been questioning a lot. Mainly around my career. Do I enjoy what I do? Am I motivated enough? Have I reached my potential? Can I do more? The list goes on!

When I was younger (she says like an 80 yo grandma) I never really had a clear career path but always knew I loved business and also helping others. I started this blog last year to do something for myself, alongside my day job and I’ve loved having my own space online to blog what I like.

People were quite surprised when I started my blog because I’m quite reserved and not really ‘out there’. I struggled with my confidence growing up, and to an extent I still do. But I’ve adapted a mentality of if you don’t try, how will you ever know? I still have no idea what I really want to do and at my age, that can be quite daunting. But one thing I do know is I want to be happy. I want my days to be filled with joy which I know sounds super corny but it’s the truth. I want to wake up excited to start my day not knowing what is to come, the idea of this excites me.

I like knowing I’ve helped someone somehow. Even if it’s a tiny piece of advice, encouraging them or just being there to talk, I feel we can all inspire others. Hopefully using this platform (my blog) to do so. I am unsure who reads my blog but I am constantly surprised when people I know personally make a comment that they read it, it still feels as if I’m writing to and for myself.

I was listening to the radio this morning and there was a really motivational message that spoke to me. No matter what you do in life, do it with a clean heart and come from a good place, nothing happens by accident. You will in turn find your purpose.

So whatever it is we’re called to do in life, aspire to inspire before you expire!

    Love this. It’s definitely something I think about a lot I.e. Making sure I make a positive impact while I can, it’s just tricky when you’re trying to figure out exactly what you want to do/be. Great post, looking forward to the next one
