Live Wild & Love Madly
As I even think about writing this post…my logical self is saying, “lay off the Kool-Aid sister.”
Thank goodness my intuitive side has the upper hand today. That bitch rocks.
You see, I talk and talk and talk about “living your life” & “stepping into your TRUE identity” yet I find myself, in this moment, realizing that I have not fully embraced that myself.
Until right here in this moment.
When I woke up this morning to my girlfriend’s frantic text request to see if I was alright, I knew there were some wretched happenings going on. When I pulled up the news feed, my gut was verified with the senseless violence going on in the EXACT city I was just in no longer than a few hours before.
The city, technically, I should still be in had it not been for my desire to be home so soon.
Tragedy engulfed so many. Tears and lives shed like rain falling from the heavens.
And as my social contacts light up my world to check for my safety, I come (again) to the realization of how precious and amazing this life we have is.
But what have I been really doing about it?
Being safe. Living safe. Advertising safe. Safe, safe, safe, safe, safe.
I’ve realized that with all the fears I help others overcome, I still have a fear of rejection.
Yup, I said it…I am not perfect. (gasp! the horror!)
How does this fear of rejection serve me?
Absolutely not at all. I think. But wait…maybe it does. Maybe, just maybe, it gives me another direction in which I must grow. And I had not fully wanted to admit, much less speak (or in this case, write) about.
In this moment, I am facing my fear.
I am fully embracing this ridiculous fear of rejection that I have tucked away so brilliantly that even I did not realize was so powerful.
Powerful because I allowed it to become so.
You know what?
Fuck you, fear of rejection.
What I have learned/verified/have been given testimony to is that I have excellent coaching skills. The people whom I have helped are grateful they had me in their lives. It is BS that I think otherwise.
I chose wisely when I started my own business. I chose wisely when I invested in myself, because I know that I am serving others in a way that makes my soul happy!
I now choose wisely to release the hold of rejection and allow myself to fully become the powerhouse that I am.
