Let’s lay out your life and look at it. What does that mean? It means, let’s lay everything you do down, and look at it with intention and deep self-honesty. Where is your energy being drained? Where is your energy being charged? What’s fulfilling? What’s not so fulfilling? What’s self care in celebration, and what’s self care because you feel like you’re not enough or too much? What dreams feel alive and are calling out for more attention? What dreams are old and exhausted and you’re still yearning for them because that’s what society wants for you, or a family member, or what you thought you wanted.
You have complete self-agency over your life. Don’t think so? Humor me for a moment, what if…you did. What if everything you do and experience in life is because of your own choice? That can be a scary thought to ponder. And it can be wildly beautiful. Wildly beautiful because no one else really gets a say in what you do and how you do it. That’s good news right? Yes.
The courageous act of honestly looking at what you do and how you live your life has the power to transform your life for the absolute good. What’s that thing you’ve been pushing off to the side? Not enough time, I gotta think about the kids first, I gotta take care of this family member, I don’t have enough money. I’m sure all these reasonings are valid *and* I invite you to ask yourself: “Is it really all of these things? Or am I scared that I’m gonna fail?”
If your answer is the latter than HOORAH! You’re being honest with yourself. That’s the first step, my Love. And the truth is, you will most definitely fail at some point in your life when stepping outside of your comfort zone. That’s good news too, because you learn from failure. You learn something new each time you fall down. And the great news is each time you get up and go at it again, you’re building resilience.
And there are so many people out there who are getting up and going at it again with you. Including me. You deserve to feel comfortable in your own skin while creating a life you Love.
Loving your body, feeling safe inside is a must in order to truly cultivate your true and beautiful life. It’s a must because, from a steady, grounded, open, clear body and mind space you can actively make decisions that you know are the best for you. Having awareness within your body gets you more in touch with your intuition. Most importantly it gets you more in touch with your heart intelligence. And that’s where the real magic happens.
I encourage you to take the first step. Which is slooowwing dooowwn. That way you can really pay attention to your actions and your thoughts. You can really see where you’re putting your energy. Then you can do something about it.
