I was thinking about you today! For a while, actually!
Couldn't even shake it!
I was thinking about how I could help you change the way you look and feel about your life and perhaps about some of the circumstances IN your life....
I thought I would share with you a better path to beneficial change. Another way to look at things.
So for example . . .
Let's not ask, "What can I get in order to be happy?"
Instead, let's switch to, "What can I give up in order to cease being unhappy?"
Sit with that a moment.
No, really think about that one. Please.
How we do ONE thing is how we do EVERYTHING.
Again, sit with that a moment.
I had to.
Years ago, I was introduced to a phrase that stuck with me as soon as it landed in my ears! – "If you always do as you've always done, you'll always get what you've always gotten."
I repeat that one, A-LOT!
That statement rings truer and truer every day since I read it!
Does it make sense to you?
Really think about that for a moment.
Think about how you might be operating in reaction TO your life, instead of responding FOR your life.
What are you looking to attract into your life?
What do you REALLY want?
If you are unhappy or dissatisfied in any way, KNOW that you have the power to transcend ALL circumstances.
That's right, ALL circumstances.
I bet you know someone who has a story of how THEY transcended THEIR circumstances for what they wanted.
I know, I know . . . but, THEY are the lucky one's. That could N-E-V-E-R be YOU!
Remember, you can't be upset with the results you didn't get from the work that you didn't do. (I know you've had to have seen that meme!)
Honestly. . . meaningful change will never happen if you continue to operate the way you've always operated.
Doesn't that make sense?
I heard a story about Snakes shedding their skin from actor Jeff Bridges.
It sheds it's skin because it no longer serves its body, its life progression.
It made me think, metaphorically, about that process, and then of course, I Googled that shit – as my girlfriend, Randi would say!
So, metaphorically . . . (and then MY interpretation):
Snakes shed regularly throughout their life to enable growth. Their skin does not stretch to accommodate their growth. We learn, we grow, we MUST progress. . . and then we learn, we grow, we must progress, again and again. That's the plan. That's the strategy.
Shedding usually takes about one to two weeks. Yeah, the processes doesn't take long if you are willing to lean into it. AND you must remember that you are 'shedding' all thru your life! So the cycle of your life continues to unfold as you grow and progress. You will be ready for each phase as you go.
Although this is a completely natural process, there are certain steps that you must take to care for a shedding snake. Your growth IS a natural process and what LIFE intended for us all. The snake is s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d to a certain point of origin in it's life, and then it MUST shed what no longer serves him and continue to grow and progress. Or it will die. Die in it's old skin. Awareness of the steps you must take care of in your process is important to your desired outcomes.
Make sure you foster a hospitable environment for your snake by adding extra water and humidity to the cage. What we do FOR ourselves – those 'things' that need to happen for us to grow and progress – is vitally important to get you your desired outcomes. V-I-T-A-L.
Provide the snake with a basin of water and course materials to help it get rid of its skin. Set up the conditions necessary for your desired and successful outcomes! Energies ARE contagious! Work with a [coach], a partner in believing that anything is possible or you. Anything. A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G.
If you want it bad enough, lean in to the process of growth and progress. Have fun! You'll get to design a clear plan, a strategy, and you can have anything you want! You DO need support. We ALL need support! (Would ANY sports team show up WITHOUT their coach? Their support? Their fans? The people who sit on the sidelines and can see the game from a different perspective. (Ok, not going deep into this metaphor here... you get the point!)
If you notice any complications, such as an incomplete shedding, seek the help of a veterinarian. Work with your coach! A coach wants you to 'shed' your old skin as much as you NEED to shed it! Your coach will see things differently than your [emotional] prospective. We help to take the emotion out of your motion. Get you moving in the direction of your longings, your desires and your dreams. It's truly a beautiful thing. **When my coach speaks the words that I'm feeling, actively listens, I feel relief! Like: Ahhh... YOU GET ME!! There is Hope! There is Possibilities! I AM NOT ALONE. And that feels good. #mytribe
So, back to the point here . . . you might need to 'shed' a certain habit or habits and replace them with new habits.
These habits could SIMPLY be attitudes of mind.
In other words, you might have to "give up" the idea that you want to be "normal" act "normal" and start operating with the Truth that you are a one-of-a-kind miracle conceived by the same Higher Power who conceived the Universe.
Think about that one, too!
Being happy is an inside job.
It IS simply the attitudes of your mind.
And there's a plan. There's a strategy for you.
And here's the best part. . . it's ALREADY inside of you!
Even if it means you just want MORE of what you already have.
Your life is good, even great! And you want more! Nothing WRONG with that! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
We just need to clear the path and go get it out of you!
What are you waiting for??
Aren't you sick of hearing me say that??
If so . . . let's get intentional, let's get determined, and let's get BUSY!!
But hell, you better send me at least a note that you are ready. . . and at the very LEAST before the weekend is here!
There will NEVER be a good time; best time . . . hasn't life taught you at LEAST that? lol
I am not my sister's keeper, I am my sister.
