you’re never less

 

How often do you tense up or cringe at the memory or anticipation of making a “mistake” or getting it “wrong”? That’s nothing more than your fear-based ego perpetuating the myth that your safety and worthiness lay exclusively within perfectionism.

Your soul knows better than that. Your authentic self understands that nothing meaningful is born, learned, adventured, grown or changed without taking risks, wandering outside the lines, and on occasion, making a gigantic mess.

There’s no value in feeding anxiety about the doom triggered by alleged shortcomings, missteps or failures. Saddle up to those fears—past, present or future—with a generous serving of curiosity instead.

Reflect on these stories not to shame or alienate yourself, but rather as a means to learn about yourself, others and life. Find inspiration, regardless of outcomes, to continually keep your ego in check and embolden your soul.

Be responsible for your choices and compassionate in your next steps, most importantly with and towards yourself.

You are forever and always, infinitely loved and worthy.

you’ve got this

It’s the assumption that some of the basic tenants of being human are WRONG, combined with running, avoidance, and distraction from these experiences that truly drives our suffering. 


What we resist or try to work around will only scream at us louder and push on our lives harder.  I know there are dark chapters that make this nearly impossible to believe, but there is nothing that you cannot face.  Your soul is infinitely powerful and loving.  It’s the fragile human ego that confuses you about your unyielding capacity for courage, grace and evolution.


When you find yourself holding your breath, stop to BREATHE.  Relax the body.  Ask yourself what it is you are resisting.  Trust yourself enough to move beyond what you believe your limits are.


We will never know true peace or fulfillment by hiding, waiting for “better” or “safer” circumstances, or holding out for more ideal versions of ourselves or lives to appear FIRST. 


Whatever is in front of you right now is going to show you the glory of who you really are.  It’s in consciously walking through the things you’re most scared to face that you’ll find the greatest liberation possible.  Know that through every step of it, you are surrounded by profound love.
