I know I’m not the only one who is having several rounds daily of…
I mean things have been a little sideways, the energy is heavy, and we’re being called to pull our seats up to the table.
The only word that comes to mind to describe this is WOW.
It’s not easy. I feel you and, no matter where you sit on any one of the 10+ hot topics right now, I know you feel it. And that’s what I want to talk about because I know that we each have our own individual belief systems that have been formed from past experience, upbringing, influences, mentorship, unhealed trauma, and everything in-between.
I’m not here to change anyone’s mind about anything.
Although hey, my ego thinks that would be a banner idea. Instead, I’m more interested in having you feel confidence, commitment, and peace with your decisions.
I know that the collective stress amplifies when we feel constantly at odds with ourselves. When we can’t find our rooting and don’t know with clarity or conviction where we stand.
And even if we’re both women, 45 years of age, married, and drive SUVs with a dog and 2 teenagers, our journey to how we both got here isn’t the same. AND no small surprise… our journey forward won’t be the same either.
Why? Because I am not you and you are not me.
You will have specific conversations, relationships, and experiences in your path that will challenge you.
There will be a myriad of personal decisions you will need to make that you never imagined yourself making.
These situations may cause you to step outside of your own internal place of knowing and make you question your beliefs and your feelings. You may feel pressure, shame, guilt, and grief around these decisions. You may even feel yourself straying away from what you know to be true within yourself.
Don’t let it.
Don’t let the noise of the outside world convince you to betray your own beliefs – whatever that may be. It may not be simple and I’m not suggesting it’s easy, but what I do know is that one way of moving forward honours you and your deep inner wisdom and the other does not. When we ignore what we believe at the core of our being, we create internal strife and disconnect that compromises our peace. When we step into our full knowing and make decisions and interact with the world from a place of deep knowing and honouring…
It creates deep resolve and unshakeable confidence.
When you feel yourself being strongly influenced by someone else’s beliefs, take notice and consciously respond in a way that supports you and your soul journey.
I want you to go deep inside of yourself when these feelings come up and ask yourself a few of these questions:
Does this feel right for me?
Does this feel aligned with who I am and what I know to be true?
Am I compromising my core values or my personal code of conduct?
What is the cost, if anything, by ignoring or compromising my beliefs – now, or in the future?
Do I feel at peace with this decision?
There are no right and wrong answers, but there are answers that are right for you and ones that are wrong –> And that’s what you need to focus on because this life is yours to live.
You are here for your journey and your responsibility is to answer the call that comes from within you.
No more. No less.
