Humans are one of the most complex creatures on earth, for reasons related to the spontaneity and somewhat unpredictability of their being. Even with the tremendous advancement in scientific disciplines like biology, first-hand psychology, and sociology, the human person is still tagged an enigma (that is, a being that continues to induce wonder). This may not be unconnected with its unique composition of body, soul, and spirit. Nature has configured humans to pass through the childhood stage of life on the way to adulthood. For most people, the days of being a child exuding innocence and oblivious of mischief are filled with good memories they would not mind to relive them. To ensure that part of them is not lost in adulthood, they make concerted efforts to listen to that little innocent within them alongside their spirit. Thus, this discourse is centered on urging the average woman to pay attention to their inner being which houses their very core and authenticity.
In this contemporary period of technological boom with access to so many gadgets of distraction, so many persons—including women—have forgotten how to or rarely withdraw themselves from the noise to relate with their inner selves. Taking this important trip inside is deemed unfashionable and contradicts what is trending. As a woman, it is time for you to take trends, henceforth, with a grain of salt because all that glitters is not always gold. Candidly, it is still relevant to pay attention to the real you within and pattern your actions after the findings gotten therefrom. Let your inner spirit guide you. Feed it. Nurture it. Bring it back to life. A regular conscious walk down the lane of deep self-reflection and meditation would help. It is here that you unearth what really makes you happy, birth your dreams as a woman to make a difference no matter whose ox is gored, and begin the journey to a fulfilled living. Being yourself would come more naturally to you, thus having fun en-route fulfilling your dreams won’t be a struggle.
Without mincing words, the child in you holds the key to living a full and rich life. Let her out to play. Loving your inner child helps you remember your innocence and recognise how much life loves you. It would be a disservice to yourself if you stifle this inner you and get lost in the crowd. If seeing those Cinderella movies, reading those interesting novels, reveling in jokes told by friends, enjoying some you time at the swing, playing scrabble and cards with peers, and so on, would leave you giggling/laughing and gasping for breath like you were five years old, then why hesitate? As long as, you do them in a manner wherein the likelihood of jeopardising your authentic dreams is absent, it is okay. Besides, synergy between you and the inner you are essential for being that outstanding woman.
So, listening to the inner you is an activity that must not be relegated to the background, because it is the baseline from which your peculiarity as you takes off. In other words, it is the center of gravity of your life, as it borders on your spirit and provides a compass to navigate the deep waters of human existence.
