So, we're all just human. We're going around doing our human moments. Perfectly imperfect. And if we can drop this story that somehow we're not okay when we cry, or that there's something deeply wrong or broken about us when we do, we get to actually enjoy ourselves just a little bit more.
I was talking about being in the flow today in my FBGroup.
I didn't plan my talk. I didn't know it was coming, but I was talking about how we need to just starting speaking our truth to free ourselves. And, naturally...well
I cried. Because if you know me, you know I wear my heart on my sleeve and my truth is my badge of honour.
And we can still be in the flow and still feel unsteady on our feet. In fact that's what the flow is about. It's about being SUPER real. Shedding our masks, and revealing who we really are.
Because that's where the magic begins.
I help clients go from the muddle of dreams+desires in their heads into massive action that changes their lives. This means there are tears. Because we are releasing our old selves, our old stories, programming that just doesn't serve us anymore.
So release and cry. Let it all out. Get messy and real.
That's when the inner shifts happen.
We'll be covering all of this in my last sisterhood before the craze of summer begins. Curious what this is about? Check it, babes.
With dried eyes now and an open and free heart,
You know that high you get from a super, freakin’ amazing day?
Like ALL-THE-THINGS are lining up, it’s perfect.
Nothing can bring you down.
You’re on fire.
Getting sh*t done!
Making it happen and totally on your game!
And then-- #BAM!
Something’s feelin’ off.
Unease creeping in.
Something triggered you and suddenly you feel like it’s all unraveling.
Fear of failing.
Fear you’re alone in it all.
Or that it won’t work
Doubt in yourself, your ideas, your plans, seemingly at every turn.
Not sure if you’re ready, able, willing to keep going.
And then we find ourselves:
→ playing that old subconscious script and beating ourselves up
→ wondering what is wrong with us
→ telling ourselves to “get over it”, or think happy thoughts
I want to remind you that this is not only normal, but just part of the process of growing.
It’s what happens when we start to get serious about changing our mindset, our perspectives, our habits--all the things. We come up against ourselves.
The road to authentic change and growth is paved with bumps and bruises along the way.
But this is the good part--because it’s really when things are truly changing.
It’s not the stuff that comes up that’s going to get us down, it’s 100% how we choose to move through it.
When we gather the tools needed to bust through our own shells, MAGIC, baby, MAGIC!!!
And I, 150%, believe we are all here to grow, to expand and to share our unique gifts with the world.
So, don’t let your mind chatter stop you.
It’s there to keep you going, one foot in front of the other.
But we won’t know what to change until we can learn to sit quietly with the self and listen to what it’s telling us.
So let’s get deeply connected to the now, the present moment, to fully embrace this space so that we can release what we are aching to let go of. Because this is when the most amazing doors will open.
