The Importance of Reinventing Yourself…


In the last three months I can truly say I have been on an inner personal journey . I am learning how to face my fears, be vulnerable and communicate in an authentic way. Nonetheless, each journey has introduced me to a different me. I am evolving out of my cocoon and flourishing into a beautiful butterfly. I know as I evolve reinvention becomes an important part of the journey. Reinvention is the key to growth in life.

If you think about it companies are always reinventing their brands to appeal to different demographics. Companies take time to reassess what has worked for their brand and what has not worked for them. Just like a company, we should always reassess ourselves to see what methods in our lives are working and which ones need to be eliminated. Reinvention is the answer to transforming our lives into something new.

Below I will share three concepts on why reinventing yourself is so important.

1) Pain changes you. When we endure a tragedy in our lives it has the power to change us. I remember in 2007 when my two-year old daughter died it changed my life forever.  The power of losing a loved one changed my perspective on life. Pain causes you to step back, assess your lose and recreate a better you.


2) Starting Over. Sometimes it is hard to start over but starting over gives you a new outlook on life. It opens you up to many possibilities of living a life of adventure.


3) Nothing grows from a comfort zone. If you find yourself frustrated, irritated or annoyed nine times out of ten you are outgrowing the space you occupy. Many people allow fear to keep them hostage to their comfort zone. The biggest thing I have learned is that comfort zones are great but nothing phenomenal or extraordinary grows out of them.



Pain, starting over and escaping your comfort zone are essential things that help you reinvent your life. Reinventing yourself is important so it can unlock extraordinary things. So today, I challenge you to evolve past the norm and be intentional about reinventing an area of your life that seems stagnant. Once you begin the process you will  see life from a different perspective!

Reinvent Yourself & Your Life

I was shackled to the bed as the covers held me captive. I wanted to leave but the pillows were situated at a perfect angle elevating my head to sleepy land. I was feeling drugged with the dose of sleep deprivation. I knew the probation officer would soon scream in my ear. I hated alarm clocks I just wanted to sleep until my body was well rested. I began to slowly crawl out the bed to go to the bathroom. 

For a short minute I stood in darkness not wanting to wake myself up. The lights shine brightly on my face and I saw an unfamiliar reflection. It was a reflection of sadness, a profound misery. The routine of my life was screaming for attention. In this moment I knew it was time for a change, I needed to reinvent my life.

Have you ever felt like the scenario given above? I believe we all have been in a place where routine was driving us crazy and we needed a fresh start in our life. As we grow as human beings we should always strive to reinvent our self.  Growth pushes us to change what we have been doing. In order to stop the staleness from molding our growth we have to be willing to fill our life with freshness. A new year is always a good time to reinvent your life and your self.

Reinventing yourself and your life is a soul journey that changes your perspective on life. You become captivated by living in the present moment, enjoying the moment instead of clinging to the past or worrying about the future. Below are tips to help you reinvent your life and yourself.
