I love living life. With a dream in my heart, overwhelming peace in my soul, encouraging beliefs in my mind and invigorating energy in my strength, I wholeheartedly explore a life of wholeness. I am whole.
OK so yesterday arrived. It started well, but then like a big swooping wrecking ball, it hit and it hit hard.
The dream, the goal and the vision my heart had been carrying was abruptly challenged. What once was a feeling of excitement of all that could be soon turned into a feeling of disappointment from an ending beyond my control. My heart felt discouraged and my soul felt restless. My mind was racing with new thoughts and my strength felt weak. I had hit that oh, but I can’t feeling.
oh, but I can’t get back up again.
oh, but I can’t change my plans.
oh, but I can’t feel excited again.
oh, but I can’t see my dream fulfilled.
When you are in that place of oh, but I can’t feeling it can glue you to the I won’t do it. I can’t do it stage. Why bother? That one hit can really wobble you and derail you from ever seeing your dream or goal being achieved.
In that moment, it really is ok to not feel ok. Sometimes you may just need a little bit of extra encouragement to acknowledge the hit from the swooping of the wrecking ball. The hit may have hurt you. The hit may have disappointed you. The hit may have caused you to change your plans. You may just need some extra space to feel with your heart, soul mind and strength. The whole of you. Taking some time out to process, take a few breaths, cry a few tears, regroup and receive is a wonderful gift to yourself that honours you in this stage of your journey. It releases. Spending quality time on yourself is so worth it!
Today is my new day. A lot less raw than yesterday, I am however still lingering in the I won’t do it. I can’t do it stage. I can definitely feel the nudge towards the I want to do it stage which is much more empowering than what I felt yesterday. No matter how small, there is movement. Movement is my own encouraging affirmation for my beautiful unique success.
With a dream still in my heart, a new gift of peace in my soul, a fresh belief in my mind and a little energy lift in my strength, I still desire to wholeheartedly explore my life of wholeness. I am still whole. It may look a little different than I had originally wanted, however I am on the journey of I want to do it. How do I do it? I’ll try to do it. I can do it. I will do it. Yes, I did it!
QUESTION TIME: What stage are you at today? Is that stage supporting or sabotaging where you are heading? What one thing would help you move into the next stage?
