When Do You Feel Most Like Yourself?
This is such an interesting question. It helps us understand and identify what makes us happy.
What are you doing? Where are you? Who are you with?
These additional questions help us hone in on the details of what makes us content.
The more we understand what makes us happy, the more we can focus our energy and time on activities that gratify our soul and fill our hearts with joy.
What are you doing?
I feel most like myself when I am creating. I might be cooking, baking, painting, crafting, home decorating, writing, styling outfits, or any other activity that allows me to stretch my imagination and exercise my brain. Creativity is adult play. There are no wrong answers. Give yourself the freedom to explore.
Who are you with?
My husband and my pug.
They both accept me, faults and all for who I am. Okay, Zoë will accept anyone with food but I like to believe she would still have my back.
A close second would be my group of girlfriends. They inspire me, make me laugh till I cry and support me without judgement.
Where are you?
If I had to choose a place where I feel most like myself it might be hiking in BC. I used to think of hikes as stress reduction, meditation walks. I’d visualize breathing in fresh green and blue air and exhale stressful red and yellow. Nature centers me physically, emotionally and mentally.
What clothing makes you feel most like yourself?
I feel most like myself when I am wearing bright and bold vintage or secondhand clothing.
It communicates important messages about myself. Helping the environment and wearing something unique are two priorities for me. Of course wearing something that makes me feel beautiful and good about myself is also very important.
As you can see I’m a maximalist when it comes to pattern and colour.
The more the merrier.
Funny enough, although I own quite a bit of jewellery I rarely wear it. I let the clothes take centre stage.
This is a face-off of two strong willed individuals.
Who do you think won?
If you placed your bets on the furry stout one congratulations! Two pug hugs coming your way.
