I have spent PLENTY of my life super concerned about what others think of me. I have also spent a lot of head and heart space wondering what other people think of what I am up to. I was hyper focused on gaining the approval and validation of others.
While this isn't bad or wrong, it was certainly slowing down my progress. I was noticing my focus on the future but then being distracted by current circumstances. Trying to ensure everyone else's happiness or satisfaction would've eventually given me ulcers, or worse, had I continued down a path of losing sleep over the opinions of others.
It took facing what I had previously avoided.
It took taking a stand for my own and the greatness of everyone.
It took understanding that others opinions were about them and what they are dealing with.
Those opinions truly were not about me or what I'm up to.
I was able to set myself free from that weight and guilt.
It also took compassion for anyone dealing with deeply rooted anger, hate, and resentment.
It took giving up my ego's desire to be liked!
This has been the biggest challenge because what it truly took was liking and loving myself, no matter what, to realize that no thing or no one can impact my self love.
When I got clear about that, I got how brilliant, bold, beautiful, courageous, kind and loving I am and allowed it to be on full display.
This makes a difference.
I make a difference.
I share MY gratitude in this group with you because my breakthroughs are your breakthroughs...and yours are mine.
I'm doing the work for myself and bringing it to you boldly because no matter what age, stage, and phase you are at on your journey, there is something to relish from the full display of other's brilliance!
We are see ourselves in them.
We see our possibility in them.
I will always share possibility so vividly so that you may get a glimpse of it for yourself and step boldly into your power and fullest life!
I freakin' love You.
