If the thought of changing yourself brings you out in a rash or hot sweats - this is for you! I don't do anything that adds stress - keeping everything simple is the easy way to see results.
Do you think along the lines of "I am what I am", and feel that you are set in stone?
Often, when you have a defensive reaction, you feel you need to cover up your vulnerabilities. Everyone has soft spots that are best left alone - but nobody else knows about them! There's only you poking yourself with a sharp stick on a regular basis. Stop going back to old memories - from now!
Strength isn't about acting tough.
That only puts others off. You are not a warrior setting out to do battle every day. When you make peaceful choices, your path becomes far smoother, and a whole lot less exhausting. And you don't need to wear armor to hide the real you.
Know that you are never alone. For every memory that makes you cringe, I've got hundreds! They no longer bother me, because as I've grown I've learned everyone has hundreds of moments they'd rather hadn't happened.
Mistakes wake you up to your inner strengths.
Doing something wrong isn't the end - it's just a pause for you to choose a different direction. You are strong every day you face up to each of your fears, and let them go. The more you care about how you feel, and take positive action to feel better, the stronger you become.
Knowing yourself makes you strong.
You don't need to spend $1,000s joining groups who call themselves b****es, or throw words like s**t around. You can be dignified, respect your sensitive nature, and choose your own path forward. Don't feel you need to conform, and be a sheep - follow whatever feels good for you.
Being open to love makes you strong.
The more you look, the more you'll find others like you with warm, sharing, caring hearts. The more love you immerse yourself in, the more you will be protected from the pain that will always exist in the world. You're not burying your head in the sand - you're caring for yourself so you are strong enough to help others. Love does not make you weak - it's your ultimate core strength.
Feeling strong means saying 'no' more often - without any guilt, and saying 'yes' to doing what you love. Life becomes a lot less complicated when you focus on enjoying every day. Please get in touch if you need help to find your inner strength that will lead you to the life you love.
"You alone are the judge of your worth and your goal is to discover infinite worth in yourself, no matter what anyone else thinks." ~ Deepak Chopra
“All that is left to bring you pain, are the memories. If you face those, you’ll be free. You can’t spend the rest of your life hiding from yourself; always afraid that your memories will incapacitate you, and they will if you continue to bury them.” ~ J.D. Stroube
"As soon as you awaken to the power you have, you begin to flex the muscles of your courage. Then you can dream bravely: letting go of your limiting beliefs and pushing past your fears. You can start to come up with a truly original dream that germinates in your soul and bears fruit in your life." ~ Alberto Villoldo
