Today I am starting a new project, and I would LOVE for you to join me!
I have been feeling constantly exhausted and apathetic over the last few months. I’ve been eating a lazier diet, drinking more red wine, gaining weight, feeling physically ill literally every day and living in a constant state of anxiety, lethargy and insomnia. Clearly something isn’t right. But the worst part is, I don’t know how to fix it.
I already take anti-depressants to aid depression and anxiety, and am in recovery from my dermatillomania. So having days where I don’t feel great, or inspired, or I don’t feel anything at all, is to be expected.
In addition, I have a life purpose problem. I desire – and, if I may venture to sound a bit confident in myself just for a minute – I feel intuitively that I am here to contribute to the world in some meaningful way.
Trouble is, I don’t know how. People say “do what lights you up” but I haven’t found that spark. And trust me, I’ve been really looking for it, for a really long time, in many different places.
And then this idea came to me today:
Every day I will post on Twitter (and if it’s a picture I’ll post it on Insta too) a thing that has made me feel a bit of a spark during that day.
My ‘why’ for this is threefold:
First – over time, providing I am consistent with posting at least once a day – which in itself will feel like a massive effort – I will build up a picture of the recurrent themes, topics, role models, etc which have given me a little bit of that “what lights you up” feeling. I am hoping that this information will in itself trigger a bigger lightbulb moment in terms of my own personal purpose and what makes me feel passionate.
Second – it will be like a happiness/inspiration diary that I can look back on and give me nice feelz 😊
Three – I believe that honesty and transparency about mental health and these bigger life questions helps to unite people globally.
I am going to be honest if I don’t feel anything at all, or I feel crap, or I don’t feel a spark. Why force it? I want to cover the whole gamut of emotion within inspiration and purpose.
So how does this involve you?
Because I would love you to get involved too!
Share with me, and with others, what made you feel something today.
Lets help everyone who knows they have a greater purpose than the life they are living right now, but can’t figure it out.
Lets help the people who are feeling lost or apathetic or purposeless.
Lets help those whom don’t feel anything at all today.
Because my philosophy is anything’s worth a try, right?
Use the hashtag #findingmyspark – and either hashtag me with #freedombirdie and/or tag me on @freedombirdie on Twitter and @freedom_birdie on Insta so I can follow your journeys. And let’s start sharing!
I can’t wait to get started! xxx
