You don’t have to go far.
Explore your closet. You’ll find memories and stuff you’ve forgotten you had for years. Maybe there are some things you need to let go.
Explore your kitchen. You’ll find you eat the same stuff all the time. Maybe there are new brands or recipes you’ve always wanted to try out.
Explore your backyard. You’ll find little creatures and plants you’ve never seen. Maybe do some gardening.
Explore your neighbourhood. You’ll meet people you never knew staying or working nearby. Maybe you’ll find a cool place to hang out or a community service you might want to help out.
Explore your workplace. You’ll find colleagues you’ve never spoken to. Maybe talk to the cleaning lady, the parking attendant or the security guard. Find out interesting things others do in their jobs.
Explore yourself. Sit yourself down for coffee and listen to yourself. You’ll realise things you need to change and work on. It helps give you perspective. It makes you a better, happier person.
Self-awareness is our capacity to stand apart from ourselves and examine our thinking, our motives, our history, our scripts, our actions, and our habits and tendencies.
– Stephen Covey
Self-love is a good thing but self-awareness is more important. You need to once in a while go ‘Uh, I’m kind of an asshole’.
– Louis C.K.
Self-awareness is one of the rarest of human commodities. I don’t mean self-consciousness where you’re limiting and evaluating yourself. I mean being aware of your own patterns.
– Tony Robbins
Every human has four endowments – self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom… The power to choose, to respond, to change.
– Stephen Covey
