One of the hardest parts of change is when you admit to yourself that
– things will change –
That job that saps your energy and patience.
The belief you’re in the wrong place or with the wrong person.
The lack of respect, acknowledgment, appreciation,
or the confusion on your steps.
These challenges are about to shift in your favor.
Suddenly on your quest to be happier, you discover
you can – be happier –
The signs are there such as:
Feeling angry passes through quicker.
You notice that you are more open and it’s ok.
How you speak to yourself is inspiring more often.
You accept compliments with pleasure.
People are more trustworthy (and you say no to ones that are not).
You allow yourself to believe that you matter, and you have value.
You even give yourself permission to speak up about your dreams.
It’s about this time that change becomes hard
because change of this nature isn’t a one-off.
When you realize that all the effort is reaping loving rewards,
you may feel as though you want to run away.
It’s sounds counterintuitive doesn’t it? It’s as if on one hand, you can’t deny the emergence of the woman you see in your mirror and yet; part of you is screaming to ‘this you’ to hold back.
Does this sound familiar?
Laying down the beliefs that you’ve had so long can be hard, especially when you sense that you could truly engage in life easy. Think about this for a minute.
Engage in life easy.
No more fighting for your place or going it alone.
Three request’s women hope to receive from working with me is: to have peace of mind, being appreciated and to know themselves better (clarity). When I dig a little deeper and ask what it means to know themselves, these women will quietly say, ‘I don’t know’ and ‘I just don’t seem to get it right, I’m not right’.
As you bravely have these intimate conversations – who am I as a woman, you may be … confronted with your old narrative. The one that has you at the end of the line of others importance. The one that has kept you in the shadows of your life – up to now -.
It may seem like a good idea at first to dive in.
In conversations for women, we refer to this as – LLI - Let Love In.
The truth is, everyone has a wobble in the conversations. When you truly are heard, challenged and appreciated, it can be daunting at first. Even hard to trust.
Maybe for the first time, you are discovering what you really want to say and choose who you want to be. You are being guided, not told. You are encouraged to come up with your rules.
All of this takes time to believe.
Slowly what you find is that your confidence is coming back. This is how you can heal.
You can sense victory because you are stitching together moments of peace.
