Feeling Overwhelmed? How to FIND Your Why and Take Care of Yourself First with Altheresa Clark

On your journey of life, personally and professionally, you’ll be challenged to get to know yourself on a deeper level if you want to break through to new levels. But how do you start the journey of self reflection? What do you do when you’re feeling overwhelmed or confused about what you’re supposed to be doing with your life? It can be as simple as starting to write. Without judgement of what comes out, write down your thoughts, feelings, goals and dreams. Don’t limit yourself or think it’s impossible, just write them down and then take a look to see what’s on the paper. Do you see yourself in the vision? If the answer is yes, then make a list of 5 things you can do this week to move in that direction. Small steps turn into big changes but you have to start. Along with the power of journaling, in today’s episode we’re talking with Altheresa M. Clark, MSW, LCSW of Inspire4Purpose about:

  • Finding purpose through trial and error.

  • Why therapy isn’t for everyone.

  • Being proactive with your mental health. 

  • Self reflection and moving past fear.
