A Brand New Ending???
Last week was a tough mental health week regarding my business. It was a week full of self-doubt, discouragement and questioning ALL OF IT.
“What the heck am I doing?”
“Why would anyone want my services?”
“Who really wants to hear what I have to say anyway”
“I’m such a fraud!
….these were just a few of the self-inflicted, painful messages ruminating in my mind.
I knew going into business for myself was going to be hard work…and constant hard work…but like most life experiences, you don’t REALLY know how something is until you’re in the thick of it.
Then on Friday morning, at the end of a weekly yoga class, the instructor played this clip during Shivasana (a.k.a. corpse pose…a.k.a. when you lie down at the end of class). I knew it was a message from the Divine to remind me of my why: to provide #morejoy in this crazy-ass world we live in.
When I got home and checked my social media, someone I know (not connected to the yoga instructor) posted this SAME EXACT clip on her Facebook page. I was like “Whoa! Okay, thank you Divine. I got the message.”
I decided to watch it again. This time writing down what words and phrases stood out. Here’s what I grabbed:
Don’t regret what you didn’t get to do.
Are you truly living?
Why do you exist?
You have a gift.
MLK – he didn’t have a dream; the dream had him.
What dream picked you?
If the airplane doesn’t fly like it is intended, then it becomes rusty and wears faster.
Live out your dream that you have inside.
The thief of doubt will come after your dreams.
What ignites you?
Struggle and criticism are prerequisites for greatness.
There is no such thing as a smooth mountain. You must climb the ridges to make it up.
Will you choose pain for success or pain that haunts you with regret?
We can’t create a new beginning but we can create a brand new ending.
Universe: Uni = one; verse = song. What song will you leave behind?
One of these takeaways stood out the most to me which I’ve turned it into a question for you. What dream picked you?
Do you even know what it is? Maybe you do; maybe you don’t. Or if you do it seems impossible. In a time when we need more love, more community…
…more of YOU in this world, I challenge you…no, I implore you to discover what dream has picked you. My hope is that you will answer these questions because YOU have a gift… a verse….a song to contribute to this world.
Are you curious to explore? Maybe you’re ready to take the next step but it feels a little scary and overwhelming.
I would love to be there with you…in a way where you feel supported and guided. By working together and through group work we can open up the unconscious, clear blockages and discover what JOYful dream will define the beginning of your new ending.
