This week has been a massive turning point – heart, head, body!
As you know I felt stuck – in a holding pattern – frustrated and uninspired because nothing felt like it was moving forward! I had put everything in place and was clear on what I wanted however it felt like my request had gotten lost 😦
How can I inspire others if I feel like I can’t inspire myself?
And I figured it out – it all came down to promises unfulfilled.
Promises from others & Promises to myself.
Because I was not focused on my purpose – I was focused on the outcome.
Time to create a new truth – oh & by the way – blockages have become a blessing in disguise!
My new truth is – it is okay not to be perfect – the more I have, the more I can give – with education/learning, there is action – as long as my action is generated by the feelings that give me the most clarity.
Clarity comes from aligning my values with my intentions and writing out a plan of action/doing – not just focusing on the outcome.
Here is a glimpse of my Values – which I am learning to review and adjust as I more forward – this is just the first 6;
- Luscious Love & Connection
- Zestful energizing health with a powerhouse level of fitness
- Luxurious Abundant Wealth
- Creative Knowledge with Focused Passion
- Fun & Fame with Appreciation, Adventure, Relaxation and Celebration
- Self Expression & Contribution with Balance and Inspiration
Yes – I admit it – I want my life to be one of Love, Connection, Passion; Laughter and Success! I have never wanted to admit that before because I was worried what people would think – OK my perfectionism was worried – now I am excited to share and express all of this, because it is what as helped to generate the emotions/feelings to move me from ‘being stuck’ to ‘soaring to new heights’.
Yes – I admit it – I am still working on the clearer more specific details – I am not afraid of them now – I am not afraid that the promises to myself will be broken – because NOW I am checking in with my purpose – listening to my heart/my body/my mentors who are teaching me so much and bringing out the best in me – because what I see in them -they see in me 🙂
Yes – I admit that my goals/projects/plans in relation to my health – still has the kgs in it – At times I don’t remember what I looked like at a certain weight that was healthy – however I am very happy that it is no longer the only measure of my success – yes – i used to think that the measure of my self worth/success was what the number said. There are many pieces to the puzzle of my health – I want my health to be one of vitality for life – not just about a challenge or a dress or way to look. Now it is about my strength in my mind and my body – it doesn’t have to be one or the other – it can be both. The difference is now, this time, the goal is not the end product – it is living everyday and enjoying the feeling of being healthy/being active/being clear/being connected/feeling beautiful/living everyday with the intention of love – in my mind, in my heart and in my body – so that I can lead by example.
Today’s breakthrough – I trained in our Sunday Circuit Session, without my ankle strap for the 1st time since I injured it in early November 2013!!
Alignment Action –
I had, what I call – an hour of power on the phone, with one of my mentor’s – to align my head & my heart with my intention/my purpose – from this, I was able to create a new file – a new perspective – to bring it all together – and I realised that I had selfishly been so lost in the lack of what I thought I didn’t or couldn’t bring to others – that I didn’t see the beauty of what I do bring.
So not only this week did I shift my OWN POWER & MIND but once I did – I was INSPIRED by an extraordinary blessing of the words of Natalie Patterson & her poem “I have a beautiful body” which brought me to tears. This stunning woman glows from the inside – out – with her courage; her passion; her self expression – is breath-taking.
However upon further reading and research – she has her own blog and more words that have since moved me – hence below I have shared her words in a link for the poem – “I dare you” – http://natalieispoetry.wordpress.com/2014/01/22/i-dare-you/
My favourite line – “Get out, you naked girl with cellulite” said no one ever… so get over it”
That line hit me hard – another AHHH moment! So get over it – I then went to a day spa/bath-house & walked around in my swimmers – without covering up my legs which is what i would normally do – because I am beautiful – regardless of what the media says is beautiful.
So taking everything on from this week’s AHH moments –
- I felt inspired!
- I felt blessed!
- I felt valued!
- I felt powerful!
- I felt aligned!
- I felt alive!
Why? Because when you align your values; intention; passion & purpose – it works.
If I can do this, then so can you!
So taking my life/your life to the next level has arrived !
I never thought it could have and yet, it has arrived in the most unusual way – I would never, ever, have imagined where I am today 🙂
I am so grateful that I am here at the start of a new chapter; I am so grateful that you are with me too – so thank you 🙂
So I will leave you today, with this little message –
