Beginning of a new month is a great time for reflection and pause.
It’s a great time to re-evaluate what we want to leave behind and consciously make new decisions.
Here are a few questions I’ve been reflecting on:
When you feel like you’re using an old map to navigate a new terrain, you know you’re called to grow and evolve. This is how we feel when as adults we move through the world with old beliefs that no longer represent who we are.
Instead of feeling like leaders of our life, we feel like passive observers, as if life happens to us and there’s nothing we can do about it but react, survive, or hide.
From place of fear the only thing we can create is more of what we don’t want. It’s conditioned, old you against intentional, true you.
When you identify and shift your beliefs to reflect a truer, more authentic version of who you are now, your life will change to reflect this internal shift.
I’d love to support you!
As your coach or a therapist, my role is to help you identify what keeps you stuck in recreating what you say you don’t want, to support your self-trust and authenticity so you can feel like a leader of your life, not just a passive observer.
Don’t borrow time from the present moment to create suffering for yourself.
We dwell in the past, regret our ‘bad’ choices, replay painful events, or escape into the future.
Each time we think about past we are taking the time from the present moment and we are forcing ourselves re-live it and feel the pain of it.
A big part of healing is being able to live more fully in the moment, rather than from the memories of the past.
This completes my 37 reflections for my 37th birthday.
26. Be discerning about who you take advice from and who’s opinion you allow to take space in your mind.
27. Your future self is the best person to check in with before making a decision because that’s the person that’ll be most affected by your decision.
28. Everything is temporary.
29. You never have to “work on yourself.” It’s about whether you’re thriving or not. If you’re not thriving, what better things you have to do then to keep finding things to inspire you and will bring you to the point of thriving.
30. The point of life is not to be happy. If you’re searching for happiness or expect to be happy all the time, you will be disappointed instead. Happiness is a byproduct of engaging with life in a meaningful way, not a prerequisite for it.
31. Your courage will always be rewarded. Either with a particular result or with an experience.
32. Be intentional with what you practice daily because that’s what you’ll become good at.
33. Feeling any feelings is not a problem. The problem is resisting the feelings.
34. Starve your doubts, feed your desires.
35. Overflow your cup and give others from your saucer.
36. You will never feel ready to make a big move or do the uncomfortable thing, so do it while you’re inspired.
37. Things you’re trying to hide from others are the things that make you unique and different.
