A Mix of Courage & GentlenessMay 17, 2022
Being seen is VULNERABLE.
Expressing your needs is VULNERABLE.
Speaking from your heart is VULNERABLE.
Setting boundaries, in a loving way, is VULNERABLE.
Taking time off is VULNERABLE.
Showing your strength (and weakness) is VULNERABLE.
F*cking up and messing up is VULNERABLE.
Over the past week, I had the honor of witnessing several clients of mine who are stepping up and prioritizing their heart, truth, purpose, deep desires, dreams, inspiration, creativity, and vision for a new world.
And it's scary as F*ck!
Because when you follow your heart, you are deep in the unknown. UNKNOWN TO YOU - and that's what counts. YOU are treading into new territory. Yes, other people have been there, but you haven't - and that's what changes YOUR world and the world of others around you.
It might mean this:
- your workweek doesn't look like a familiar 9 to 5 job, or
- the way you market might be unique to you (you don't follow the prescribed strategies - because you show up as YOU!), or
- you take a day off to do the inner work or sleep or be outdoors and honor your needs or
- you raise prices (and that feels super scary) or
- you say NO to something that doesn't feel right.
All of that is the unknown to YOU - because you are taking steps that are different from how most people work, how most people market, how most people make money, and how most people approach their lives. It can bring fear. Because we are wired (socially and biologically) to move as a pack. And your body might feel threatened when you step outside the majority path.
This is when you need to be SUPER GENTLE AND KIND TO YOURSELF. Your nervous system needs YOU to be kind, loving, compassionate, and your own beloved.
When you step out into the spotlight of your life to be YOU - you need to have a fine balance between courage and gentleness:
- know yourself
- know what your body, mind, and spirit need to calm down
- take care of your needs
- keep going
❤️do not hide (at least, not for a long time :)
And I also want to say: BRAVO! I am celebrating each and every one of you - even if I don't know yet of your personal victories. I am sure they are AMAZING. You are AMAZING ❤️
Wishing you a fine mixture of courage and gentleness this week. Keep shining.
