Right now, in this world, it’s easier to take a look around and see all the external things happening and blame them.
COVID has woken so many of us up in ways we weren’t prepared and now we are all walking around like WTF….
The plan we had isn’t anymore….
We are different…
Our kids are different.
Our relationships are different.
So many of us have walked away from our marriages…
So many of us have chosen a path of different and yet – still holding on to things that really no longer matter….
SO many of us are learning to stand alone and its SO HARD……
Everyone is walking around in protection mode…its like we’ve all experience massive heartbreak and instead of dealing with it – we’ve STUFFED it in…
Stuffing is OK in moments….however – if we choose NOT to deal and NUMB – that is what leads us to where we are right now – off KILTER….
Steve Job’s did a Commencement speech back in 2005 and his words forever are imprinted in my soul.
Here they are...
“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.”
What if everything we’ve gone through in the course of ours lives is to POP us open to what we are supposed to be vs what we are running from?
What if, this is the universes way of saying “NOT YOUR PATH”…..
What if, this is your bodies way of saying “ITS TIME TO DO IT DIFFERENT” and I’m going to KEEP GIVING YOU THE SAME SHIT over and over until you CHOOSE TO DO IT DIFFERENTLY…
What if, today, instead of thinking you need to do BIG things to shift, all you did was EMPOWER HEART from within?
Now, more than ever, instead of looking outward at the continuous roller coaster that is life – we are being asked to go inward…to learn how to become more aware of who we are, accept ourselves just as we are and remind ourselves (right now) that just as we are , is enough.
This is why I PREACH HEART and today I want to EMPOWER You with a simple way to SEE/DO it differently.
A motto, a mindset…words that shift you quickly. Here is how it works.
In moments of HARD, I call on HEART.
HUMAN – I am HUMAN. I make mistakes. I must FEEL the emotion I am being asked to feel- CRY. SCREAM. WHATEVER it is I need to do in that moment and then ACCEPT and LOVE MYSELF MORE…GIVE yourself a GIANT HUG…
EMPOWER -In moments of HARD – I must FLOW through it, not get STUCK in it. What can I do differently NOW? Can I ask for help? Can I empower a different perspective? How can I shift out of this??
ALIGNMENT – Your body knows when its misaligned – it yells and screams through emotions, feelings and signs (like red lights when you are in a rush). TUNE in and pay attention right now. Put your HAND on your HEART and feel what its trying to tell you. Sometime I ask myself “Please help me feeling this differently”
RESILIENCE – in time of HARD, I want to slip back into OLD ways…become the VICTIM or what I call the “ho hum”. Today – remind yourself of the superpower we all HOLD, that is RESILIENCE. Stand tall – call on the superhero within – I call her NANCY Fuc*ing SEIBEL and move forward with SWAGGER. Sometimes I turn on the TOP GUN theme SONG and walk with it until I am ready – lol.
TRUST – There is a GUT feeling within all of us. As kids, our stomachs hurt, as adults, there is this INNER knowing…a truth that just pops up and TODAY I reminding you to TRUST It. You GUT is 99% right all the time. Steve Jobs made all his decisions with his GUT…Today, HEAR its WORDS and EMPOWER It TRUTHS.
This simple concept for me has shifted everything. In times of HARD, when I call on it as my next step in FEELING and FLOWING, it’s shifts me almost instantly into something DIFFERENT.
It ALLOWS me always to show up as my best self, from a place of love, regardless of what is going on around me externally.
It WELCOMES me NOT to blame, and instead to EMPOWER the responsibility of my CHOICES and take the best ACTION for me forward.
WE cannot change others – trust me I’ve tried HARD and yet, we can EMPOWER ourselves to see it DIFFERENTLY.
Today – I ASK that you do.
The time is NOW.
You are so very worthy of it.
Remember who you are.
That person inside is dying to come out…to show the world who they are.
Stop hiding them and start empowering them differently. When we shift, everyone around us does too…..especially our kids and they need all the HELP they can get…
I wish you a magical fuc*ing day…the fairy tale magical kind. Bye for now.
