I honor you and the courage it takes to continually show up for this process. You are shifting and changing into the new YOU: a woman with more joy, passion, and purpose!
The first two weeks of this journey couldn’t be more different from each other, but Cultivating Joy and Diving into Your Mess are touchstones in claiming your messy brilliance. Notice the places in this journey where you’ve experienced ease, and the ones where it’s been downright challenging. Now, just breathe and know that it’s all part of the process.
This week, you are going to focus on what it means to show up as yourself in the world. Ask yourself, how can you move through life and your relationships you encounter in your daily life? You might be the most enlightened person in the world in the comfort of your sanctuary, and then go ballistic when your partner or child triggers you. That’s totally fine. The great thing about life is that it creates plenty of opportunities for you to practice showing up, sometimes screwing up, and infusing the world around you with your brilliance rather than your fears. This week’s exercises are about getting clear on who you are, what matters to you, and what you value.
Showing up as yourself isn’t about playing either offense or defense. It’s not about “getting mine” at other people’s expense. It’s really just about staying open to whatever is present in your life, and moving from there—one step at a time. Throughout this process, try to examine some of your own obstacles and stories about what it means to show up as YOU in your life and relationships. This doesn’t have to be about climbing out of the muck and pulling yourself together. It can, however, entail learning to embrace being unabashedly alive and open.
This week, open up to knowing your innate wholeness and taking every possible opportunity to shout it from the rooftops in a defiant, self-declaring whoop of celebration. There is only one YOU in this world. Celebrate that! Remember that life is about experiencing love, joy, passion, purpose and connection! Are you ready? Let’s do it!
