When it comes to actually being who we truly are and living a life that we love (like deeply deeply deeply love) most people literally WON'T follow what is in their own hearts BECAUSE of fear of what 'so and so' would think/say/do.
Or fear of being mocked/judged/rejected.
I get it.
I've been there.
And I was there there for WAAAAAY longer than I really needed to be or wanted to be and finally over the last few months//weeks//days//hours//minutes I've been feeling those self-imposed chains of limitation that I PLACED ON MYSELF melting away.
At long last. Freeing me up. Allowing me to fly again. TO BE ME. FULLY ME. FINALLY.
And you know it was SIMPLE. Really it was.
When I consider what it all came down to, after nearly 38 years of being 'too scared' to be in my truth I DECIDED to see it for the black and white situation it really was... ...and ACKNOWLEDGE that I ACTUALLY HAD A CHOICE and as much as I would rather just be a passive bystander in the unfolding of my life, (waaaaaaay easier) I could no longer deny that I am a CREATOR of it and it was time to take ownership of that fact (darn it)
So I could either CHOOSE to keep listening to my fears of being rejected/outcast/misunderstood/disliked for being WHO I AM or just CHOOSE to stop giving ANYTHING or ANYONE who supports those fears ANYMORE airtime.
To stop letting them be the reason and the excuse as to why I was stuck and why I suck. And why it was just toooo hard to be 10000% true to me. And instead just start living and breathing as I was born to. In my truth.
Even if it's odd (who wants to be normal?)
Even if some don't get it (who cares)
Even it it means I'm different (my bestie Coral says I'm special so whatever 🖕🏽)
Even if others judge (because let's face it, those who judge others for lovingly being themselves have lost their own damn way)
Even if my bright-bold-courageous-rainbow-tinged spirit triggers fear in others. 🦄🌈
Because, the truth is our fears are MADE UP. BY US.
(Our fears are NOT accidental: we humans are THAT powerful that we create fears to protect ourselves from that which we perceive to be a threat and then FORGET we did that WHILST simultaneously tricking ourselves into believing that we are actually too powerless to do anything about it when said fears begin to derail our lives (aka: self-sabotage - NOT FUN)
That's not to say that something hasn't instigated the fear, or perpetuated it. Or that we have no right to have the fear. Or even that the fear hasn't benefitted us. But within the confines of our own minds we have the ability to destroy our own joy, our own happiness, our own life by the fears that we are holding onto and buying into.
TO BE FINALLY FREE OF THE FEAR WE HAVE DECIDE TO STOP BELIEVING IT AND KNOW WE ARE POWERFUL ENOUGH TO RELEASE/TRANSFORM/HEAL WHATEVER IS KEEPING IT ACTIVE.
There may be 1,000,001 fears weighing you down today. Convincing you that you're just not strong enough/capable enough/brave enough/young enough/old enough/pretty enough/smart enough/whatevertheheck enough to live your life full out. But please believe me when I say, once you CHOOSE to create the change you seek you are half way there.
The other half of the journey is CHOOSING to ONLY listen to the voices/beliefs/people/stories that SUPPORT that.
And then YOU will be supported by the powers that be, as your path becomes illuminated and you are guided step by step to exactly where you want to be.
It's that simple. It might not always be easy. But it is always that simple.
So to summarise: Stop buying into the cow dung and start rejoicing in your greatness. And everything will be hunky-dory.
