People have been asking what does the IM stands for? I stands for inspire.fm (our cool co-organizer of the event) and M stands for motivationMY (hello, us!!)
IM also sounds like "I am...". The whole point of the event, apart from the makan-makan and games (yes, there will be a game session), it is about celebrating our individuality and what makes us unique.
I attended a bonding session for my company recently. In one of the activity, we had to hug ourselves. Many were giggling and thought it was the cheesiest idea until the facilitator said, "How many of you actually LOVE yourself? Give yourself enough credit?"
Let me ask you the following question:
- Do you often feel afraid to "be yourself" at social events? (It can a school event or an office-related event)
- Do you often feel the need to Keep up with
the Kardashiansthe rest?
- Do you often feel like you are not good enough?
- Do you often feel like you want to be someone else?
Or let me ask a more serious question:
- Do you hate yourself?
- What can be done to LOVE yourself more?
"Friendship with ones self is all important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world." - Eleanor Roosevelt
When we love our self, we are able to become a better person to our social circle (family, friends, colleagues), community and the world at large.
From now until the event (which I hope you will attend), please follow motivationMY.com's upcoming blog posts as we try to answer some of the above the questions and provide you, our dear readers, with a fresh perspective!
connect. socialize. share.
