We are living in crazy times don't you think? Does it feel like radical change to you? Personal upheaval, political upheaval, world chaos. Are you paying attention to the 24 hour news cycle and the consistent spewing of fear and negativity that these parties are so good at?
Many people I know are going through upheaval and myself included. It's not the type of upheaval you would imagine though. Well, may be. It can seem like your world or the world is falling apart all around you and you are left to pick up the pieces.
How do you choose to respond to all of this? Do you keep going and trust all will be well or do you go negative and cynical and disbelieving? It's pretty hard to trust when things seem so uncertain.
But trusting yourself and trusting life can be a way to create certainty. Can you take the leap of faith that things will work out, have a positive attitude, and just keep going? Another opportunity for courage!
I see in my experience and that of others that we have been conditioned to believe that life is a struggle, that life is hard, and that we have to fight to survive. We are conditioned to believe that we are not capable of changing our lives or making strides to something great. We believe in lack and loss and we create it every day.
Sounds like a lot of new-age baloney. But unfortunately, I find it to be true. Staring us in the face everywhere we look every day.
May be you wake up one day and you say enough of the BS about not having what you desire, the right people in your life, the right opportunities, community, living situation, etc.
May be you decide to stop believing the negative hype that you can't have what your heart desires or that to get it you need to sell your soul. May be you decide to create it by working hard, staying positive in the face of challenges, and believing in yourself and believing in life. May be you make that mental and emotional, even spiritual shift (no matter what you believe) and say you are no longer willing to be resigned to an ordinary life.
What then? Well that depends on you. But as soon as you decide that you are worth a heck of a lot more than you thought or were told by someone who didn't know their true power. Can't blame them but you can move away from them.
I am here to say that you are worth it, there is no dollar amount high enough for you and that you are a creative, powerful, loving being with great potential for good.
More mumbo jumbo BS? May be for you. Not for me.
You see I believed or found myself believing that I wasn't worth a lot even when my reality showed me differently. I got sad or depressed or in a funk and started drinking the negative cool-aid. This was never me in my life but it happened. That story took on its own life and grew. Sure I've been through a lot, we all have, and I've grown because of it and I'm grateful BUT the story of lack, of no self worth, of sadness and cynicism is just that, a story.
It can be transcended. It has been transcended. Love your stories, thank them, and then let them go.
Move into the space where you are loving yourself for who you are and loving others for who they are. Bring awareness to your actions, your ideas, your beliefs, your relationships, your goals and your dreams. See what works and what doesn't and don't be afraid to let go of anything that is taking up space or dragging you down.
This is super hard but it is also super rewarding. I haven't been successful with all of this yet. I'd be lying if I said I was. This is a process and it takes time but time we have contrary to the world clock and the naysayers who believe in smallness.
So take a moment to love yourself, love life, and be grateful for what you have and then move on your own unique path toward whatever greatness you decide to create. You can do it, you will do it, and I am here to tell you that there is more support than you know.
