You have set a New Years resolution that failed, you tried again and set a new goal and lost momentum, WHY?
It’s allusive. It’s alluring. It's invigorating. It's timeless.
You may chase it for years, decades -- your whole life, even. And yet, when you find it, you know it.
Consider a moment in your life when a negative event led to positive consequences that you were not expecting.
We have all experienced this at one time or another in our lives. We have our mind set on a certain outcome, but life sends us a curveball, and we go on a tailwind spin downward lost in the agony and pain of what was.
Imagine life through these eyes... What would be possible for you to achieve when you are fully aligned with your values, needs, and desires?
How would you show up if you had limitless confidence and courage?
What is possible from there?
Have you ever had the opportunity to feel truly seen and heard by someone else?
Imagine being heard with a deep level of compassion and acceptance.
Imagine being heard, with no agenda or prejudgment.
Imagine being heard and accepted for who you are, seeing you as whole.
Imagine the feeling of connection that is possible.
It can be so scary sometimes to share your deepest secrets and your wildest dreams.
It can be downright frightening to share our biggest failures or most challenging fears
Where do these feelings come from?
It is the worry of what someone will say or think, the standards of society that have become deeply jaded by the effects of things such as social media.
Your life may be safe, you are responsible
You are known as dependable
You are well planned
You have each and every step of the way perfectly calculated
At one point, life seems to be in order..
You had your daily routine
You knew where you were going each day and who you were going with
Everyone needs someone in their corner.
No judgment. An open mind. A ready ear. A new perspective. Insight.
It’s scary to show our vulnerable selves to others.
We are social creatures. We so want and need to belong. But the mere thought and threat of being judged and rejected send most of us back to our “safe and secure” existence
In a notebook or journal, write down a list of fears you have.
Perhaps it’s public speaking, asking someone on a date, taking that exotic trip abroad or asking your boss for a raise.
There is an inner butterfly waiting to soar
Emotions are running high
You have so much more to share with the world
There may be a fear of judgment
There may be a lack of confidence
There may be a desire to fit in
We all have a unique destination that no one can replicate. Your gifts are yours and meant to be shared with the world.
Imagine life with the 3 F's - Free,Fearless and Fulfilled
Sure, some fears are healthy. Fears such as not walking into oncoming traffic, keep you safe.
There are many fears though that prevent you from fully living and following your dreams.
We hold onto the memories of the past because of the emotion it is associated with. In addition, we are more likely to retain and hold onto something negative particularly if we do not have a positive balance around us.
Pleasing society is not why you are here. It is so easy to get wrapped up trying to fit in, not rocking the boat and making others happy. But what happens, is you begin to lose yourself along the way.
Sure, things happen.
We have all had our share of ups and downs.
It's important to be aware of the impact of our emotions
Where you hear the word trauma, what do you think?
Pain, Suffering, Anger, Loss
A disturbing experience
An action that broke your spirits
More than the trauma that happened to you.
More than those moments of doubt that try to snuff out your light.
More than the voices inside of your head choking your self-confidence with every passing second.
