I live this + believe this 200%!!
We are born with specific gifts and talents and then our life experiences develop and strengthen them!
Tough & rough stuff is just developing them.
So we can connect to people more + bless others & light up world!!
It DOES Have purpose!
Every day be thankful for what you've been through because now you are here to be a teacher & of service to the world!
The rough + tough stuff AND the blessed + joyful stuff!
Are you a planner? ( I just raised 100 of my hands!)
Plans give you certainty.
Certainty makes u feel safe.
Read that 100 times.
That's an illusion.
We Make plans because we want things to be controlled and certain. The reason we do that is we want everything to work out and feel SAFE + OK + happen in a way that makes us feel protected, taken care of + happy.
So we think.
Feeling protected : that's the root of every plan people make in any area of their life!
People teach kids at a young age: go to college, get a degree, get a good job, get benefits, get a 401k, get married, have kids, buy a home, etc etc.
Society tells people make sure you're saving for retirement bc what are you going to do if not?
We tell people to have a plan for their kids+ for their marriage + for everything!
And there's a time and place for that FOR SURE, if it resonates with you & clicks with you but when you do that a lot---- it creates a fear fear fear fear fear mindset.
You end up not even knowing what makes your soul sing + what you actually enjoy +
Then you live life + make decisions from fear.
That's all brain & mind stuff
It's not real!!!!!!!
That is No way to live Bc You miss out on a truly enriched + amplified life!
And if your life experiences have been rough, you are more controlling + planner.
Bc you crave more certainty + safety.
Everything is rooted in a feeling we're trying to achieve.
Read that 100000000000000 times. Til it hits you!!!!
When you eat the entire bag of potato chips,
when you say yes you'll work overtime at your job when you really want to say no,
when you don't speak up + dim your light....etc
* it is all rooted in a feeling you're trying to achieve ( satisfaction, security, success, likeability, comfort, etc)*
Plans are controlling the outcome.
Instead HOLD A VISION.
A vision is a goal with room for life to flow + grow from a place of love
+ not fear AND from growth + not constriction.
Stop your mind when it starts up.
It's not real!!
Notice you doing it!
Ask self, why am I doing this???
Breathe & replace that habit!!!
Noticing you are doing it: is HUGE!!
Whehooooo!! Life is NOW!!
Check in with yourself + beliefs + habits!!!
They benefitting & working out for you???
