Friday Food For Thought

Posted on the 03 June 2016 by Sofia Essen @SofiaEssen


Hello there!

Sofia means wisdom in Greek. Personally, I don’t think having wisdom necessarily means that someone is all-knowing. I believe wisdom comes in many shapes and forms. Let me use myself as an example:

– I’m wise enough to ask questions when I have trouble finding an answer.

– I’m wise enough to admit when I’m wrong.

– I’m wise enough to know what my strengths and my weaknesses are.

– I’m wise enough to not compare myself to others and focus on being the best version of myself instead.

My name might mean wisdom but I’m not all-knowing. No one really knows it all. Having said this, there is one thing that I do know for sure…

What I know for sure is that it’s never too late to become the hero of your own tale and start doing what you want to do with the time you have.

It’s easy to slip into the roles assigned to you by others. It’s less complicated to live the life that’s expected of you rather than fight for the one that you want. It’s simpler to fit in and follow others even though want to break free and lead your life your way.

The easy, less complicated, and simpler options are not the right ones if you haven’t chosen them for yourself.

You only get one life, so make the most of it. Be true to yourself, follow a path that you find inspiring, and express yourself in a way that you find satisfying. And if you don’t currently know what you want, there’s no time like the present to start figuring it out.

Your life is your story. Don’t let anyone else write it for you.

That’s all from me for now. Have a great weekend!

– Sofia
