Happy Wednesday. Have an amazing day. Enjoy.
Always do your best…….be purposeful and guided. Standing in your power is not easy, it requires courage and faith. We need the courage to stand by our values and the faith to know that we will make it through. But that seemingly simple commitment means that we must lean into our vulnerability and be okay with not controlling or even knowing sometimes, what the outcome will be. Being courageous is transforming…..because when we come out the other side we are forever different. We are sharply aware of what happened and how we were wronged and we know that it will mean nothing unless we continue to remember those lessons. With that commitment, the comeback will be stronger than the setback.
Because it takes a lot for us to be brave enough to stand by what is right. Vulnerability is frightening for people who always had a path, knew the way forward, until they fell. But the fall was meant to awaken the commitment to always stand in their power; to never let anyone treat them with anything but respect and kindness. So, we must always be brave enough to claim the kind of life we want, and be careful of the kind of people that enter into our inner circle. Not everyone deserves to be there, especially if they bring energy that doesn’t inspire and appreciate. Once you are courageous you will understand the universal truths; you are strong, because you have been weak, you are fearless because you have been afraid, you are wise because you have been foolish. The sun sets and then rises again, so will you. Namaste.
Brene Brown said “Once we fall in the service of being brave, we can never go back. We can rise up from our failures, screw-ups, and falls, but we can never go back to where we stood before we were brave or before we fell. Courage transforms the emotional structure of our being. This change often brings a deeps sense of loss. During the process of rising, we sometimes find ourselves homesick for a place that no longer exists. We want to go back to the moment before we walked into the arena, because there’s nowhere to go back to. What makes this more difficult is that we now have a new level of awareness about what it means to be brave. We can’t fake it. We now know when we’re showing up and when we’re hiding out, when we are living our values and when we are not.”
