"Embrace Your Fear"
I'll be the first to admit- this year has been a bit of a drag so far.
For me personally, still going through the ups and downs of cleaning out the estate of a family member, dealing with other people and their greed has been an all consuming task.
I was losing my mojo. A bit lost and finding myself afraid of making the wrong decision, I was starting to feel paralyzed.
But, as I'm a Sagittarius with more than a healthy dose of optimism, I decided to shift my mindset and it turned out to be a game-changer.
How did I do that?
When life has become too much to bear-
When you can't decide to go here or there-
When you feel like you've fallen and can't get up-
When you're running on empty and haven't filled your cup-
"It's Your Time. Step Into Your Power."
The time is right, and it's right now.
When I was young, I was a people pleaser. I stayed quiet in most situations, and I did not speak my truth. Although I wanted to be bold and daring, I constantly gave away my power- to keep the peace.
Even as a young adult, navigating my way through the corporate world and new relationships, I found myself firmly entrenched in old patterns.
"keep quiet, don't make waves, lay low, operate under the radar"
I thought these behaviors kept me safe, but really it only served to tamp down my authentic voice and not live to my full potential.
Fast forward to now: As a spiritual seeker; and empowerment coach for many years, I have done massive amounts of work on myself.
The "work" still continues.
"Happiness is a Habit. Cultivate it."
It's our natural right to be happy, right?
So why do we get in our own way?
“Slow down, do small things with great LOVE!”
I recently taught a virtual workshop* and the sentence above was how I closed out the class.... It's so impactful, I'll say it again.
"Slow down, do small things with great LOVE."
I think it's a great reminder to us all. It helps us to put our lives in perspective, and to recognize that the illusion of "busy-ness" and almost requires us to live in the present moment.
