Being ok with all that I am
So, mid January and how is it all going?
Did you make resolutions for the year?
I didn't 'cause I've never kept them when I've made them before.
But here's what I am working on this year:
Being ok with all that I am.
That might sound easy enough but here's what that will involve:
Talking about things I'm ashamed of (which will make the shame disappear)
Changing some of the stories I tell myself - I have changed one story and it's already had a huge impact. Because the words we use create our reality.
Practicing gratitude every day - which I am doing.
It's not about winning or losing (arguments, or popularity contests). It's about being brave enough to show myself and voice what I believe in. Even if people disagree. (So hard)
Keep working on having realistic expectations, and lowering them when they are too high - which is REALLY often, if I'm honest.
This is the work that I do.
And here's the thing about doing this work:
It is the root of everything I do. Of all my work.
It's at the root of how I show up, and of how honest I am when I show up,
Of how I am with my children,
Of how I am at work with other people's children,
It means beng ok with all that I am in the creative work I take on - and whether I finish it or not.
And of whether I let fear or courage decide my actions.
Basically, being ok with all that I am affects everything in my life.
