The journey home is essentially a constant healing process. It requires toughness, bravery, patience and rest. Allow yourself the space to grow and heal. Let yourself scar. Let yourself softly recover. Mentally, physically, emotionally. Mind, body and soul. You are always healing. You are always walking home.
This has been my mantra as of late, and it’s something that has also come up a lot lately in coaching conversations. Trust your intuition; you’re called to what you desire for a reason. And then, know that you’re worth it. You deserve to receive what you want, and you deserve it on your terms. Have patience, keep your standards high, be resourceful + determined to achieve what you desire. Don’t give up or lose hope or feel inadequate. You’ve got this. And when your heart realizes its desires, and it all comes to fruition, you’ll know the journey was worth it. It’s all within you. You are so enough. And you are so worthy.
At some point in each day, I feel some level of stress, fear, discouragement…the list goes on. The tricky part is feeling that and then letting it pass. Feel those emotions in your heart but also notice how your body feels physically. When you come back to your breath, you’re reminded that you have within you everything it takes to peacefully and contently move through the uncomfortable emotions. Don’t forget to come back to your self.
Recently I read an analogy about moving through emotions and life as a train moves through a tunnel. It’s dark and it’s scary. But the hope for light at the end of the tunnel is enough to keep moving forward and through. The promise and vastness of our own light is enough to save us. Just keep moving through all the dark parts, and you will find it. And when you find it, let it shine. It’s meant to shine so bright. Let it all out.
When I get anxious or overwhelmed, it’s really easy for panic, worry and stress to set in. It can sometimes feel like you’re drowning. It can be easy to want to just shut down, escape, withdraw. But sitting still, taking a deep breath and opening your mind to receive can make all the difference in the world. Be open. Be spacious. And be willing to receive. It allows you to feel okay and calm. It allows you to be in the moment, work through the feelings, and realize that you’ll keep moving forward and will get to the next step.
I’m thankful to have been blessed with the best tribe a person could ask for. There are few people in the world who can offer comfort just by listening, offering support, and who know what you’re feeling even when you don’t say it. They’re the few who can make you feel better simply by being there.
I hope you have that in someone, I hope you are that for someone. Find your tribe. Love them hard.
Authenticity is magnetic. And, as one of my followers put it, it’s magic! And it is. When you show up, in your full, authentic truth, magic happens.
Inner work is hard. But the self-discovery that comes with it is worth it. When you know yourself so well, it radiates. You exude confidence and a deep authenticity that people can’t resist. It’s refreshing and it feels good to be relaxed in your own body, trusting that you know every sacred part.
Stubborn. Persevering. Resourceful. Dependable. Loyal. Determined. There’s a special fire + passion burning in the soul of fighter. And it’s a beautiful thing.
In fact, it’s one of my favorite things about passionate people. The ones that won’t stop chasing their dreams. Won’t give up. Who never stop fighting for their desires. The world needs more doers. More chasers. More hustlers. More grind and grit and determination.
Lately, I’ve been focusing on the self and individuality and what it is that we each uniquely bring to the world. We compare and feel a lack of worth. We are quick to judge ourselves and dwell on self-doubt. We compete out of ego and fear.
I like this truth bomb because it reminds us of the light within us. It’s there in all of us and it is unique to us all. Our light is a source of goodness for the world, something only we can offer. It has the power to inspire and support and bring hope. We need to let it shine. We don’t need to be fierce in our competitiveness, just be fierce in how we show up. There’s no need to compare or self-doubt. When we are our true selves so bravely and defiantly, we’ll see our worth and others will see our light.
