“The need for change bulldozed a road down the center of my mind.”
This quote is the opening to Shonda Rhimes’ book, Year of Yes.
My invitation to you is to spend as much time honoring yourself as you do anything else.
Are you still in the throws of your habitual patterns, confronted with your negative talk, your FOMO, taking on too much, too little, struggling with when to say “yes” and/or “no”? If you are answering “yes” to any of these questions, you’re right on track!
Perhaps that you are figuring out how to manage your time better,confronted with certain aspects of yourself, recognizing your ego identity, discovering your relationship to your heart of compassion, learning to expand your listening ear, and beginning to identify what you have committed to and what it means to engage as the Creative Leader of your life.
Today, you are invited to show up 100%, exactly as you are, no excuses, no expectation to the outcome and yet, fully present and naked, so to speak: just as you are.
You are trusting the process and yet, sometimes struggle with the unknown.
Know that you are wholeheartedly supported on your journey. When we put our best foot forward, a reward for our work is always right around the corner even though it might not feel like it. Just stay the course. Change is upon you.
We cannot experience extraordinary change without some level of struggle. It’s work to raise our consciousnesses, it’s work to be compassionate, to have to hold true to our commitments, to mean what we say and say what we mean, to recognize those parts of ourselves that we might not like so much but still determined to explore with an open heart and mind.
What I know is this: IF you do show up, take a stand for yourself AND your “tribe”, your community and if you begin to honestly merge within your community as one amoeba, as one beating heart, as a tensegrity structure, holding each one of them together by the delicious tension of expansion, contraction, rotation, and suspended by the space between the structure, then, all will be wildly victorious. Just stay the course.
If one falters along the way, everyone in your group/tribe/community has to be able to regroup and support the weakest link in the group.That’s how a tribe works.
