A chapter doesn’t need to span a life time or even a decade.
It can last a week.
Close the chapter on whatever level of mediocrity you’ve been playing in. Why? You deserve to be real. You deserve to be the person you were born to be. Not the person you accepted you had to be, not the person you think you deserve to be, not who they told you to be, or even who you settled on becoming.
Yes, you deserve so much more. And please, don’t hold the word “deserve” as something to aspire to, or feel fuzzy about. It’s the cold hard truth. It’s real. It’s as real as you let it be.
It’s actually an entitlement. It’s actually a need. It’s actually the way it really is – but you (we) felt like it’s something to work for …. rather than something as simple as air. Air that you breathe in and out without a shadow of a thought.
But before you do, you need to let go of certain things. There is a loop-hole most people sink into. They get caught up in the emotion of it. The RA-RA fist pumping, I can do anything, infectious attitude that comes with it that they go off to the races.
STOP! I’m glad you’re motivated. I’m thrilled you’re passionate. I’m over the moon to see you cradle your power.
Do you even wonder why a lesson comes back to haunt and taunt you?
Do you ever wonder why you keep attracting the same kinds of relationships, meeting the same kinds of people, or making the same choice over and over again. I mean you’re were so passionate about it a second ago, and yet you’re right back in the middle of this life theme. You might have decided to do things differently, but you never ended the chapter or closed that book. So, that unconscious string of events still echoes throughout your existence. You never consciously ended the process (you only ended a piece of it).
Here’s a powerful meditation that I use to help me through moments such as these.
