What are you waiting for? Honestly, what are you waiting for?
Hear me out, dear one. The following might very well change the course of your life as we journey into 2021.
2020, a year filled with pain, suffering and tragic. A year that taught all of us to slow down, take a deep breath and take it one day at a time. My life has changed 180 degrees and I bet I’m not the only one. I have changed. My priorities have change. And I bet I’m not alone.
All my life I’ve been waiting. I’ve been waiting for this one day where life would be easier, I’d finally be kinder to myself, the world would be a better place to live in. It never happened. But I continued to wait for an utopian vision of the future, which did not arrive.
We wait the whole week for Friday.
The whole winter for summer.
A whole life to live – fully.
I am done waiting
I’m done sitting, waiting, wishing.
I’m no longer waiting for joy, peace, and pleasure to knock on my door.
I don’t wait for permission anymore. I fiercely choose. Waiting left me waiting. Choosing gets me free.
I am willing to be my own saviour, to stand up for myself, and to ultimately create my very own (damn) GOOD life. Isn’t that what you are here for – too?
Things I’m ready for this year
I’m ready to..
Show up for myself – as myself.
Honour and attune to my needs.
Say “NO” and mean it.
Be GOOD rather than perfect.
Remember to cultivate joy amongst the pain/grief/sadness.
Questions I’m asking myself:
What brings me joy? (make a list)
What can I do today to feel 10% better?
What does magic look like? How does it feel?
What does this season teach me? Can I honour that?
Say it with me:
I am free to start over. I am free to begin again.
Free to step into the light trusting.
I am more than who you have been at the beginning of last year.
.. and I don’t have to see the whole staircase to take the first step.
What if the unknown is the medicine, dear one?
It takes willingness to enter the unknown, look within and see all the parts of ourselves we have deemed broken, undeserving, or wrong to be met with compassion and understanding. So if you are currently in the space between the person you were and the one you are becoming… be gentle, be aware. 🧡
How are you choosing to move forward in a way that’s different than before?
I dare to ask you one more time: What are you waiting for?
Truly. Madly. Deeply.
What on Mother Earth are you waiting for? A new year? New partner? A magic message from the universe? What if the miracle we are waiting for isn’t always what happens when “it” finally comes, when the time is “right”, when the promises are actualised. What if the miracle is how we open our hearts and make room for what is coming while we wait?
My invitation is to bow into your own process.
Experience has been designed to offer us these gifts but they do not come without being earned.
The exhaustion that comes from seeking joy is what makes finding it worthy of the journey. Should you stop trying, should you overlook bowing into your own process, you will be robbed of all it has to offer you. History was made today. And we are just at the beginning of a deeply transformative time. We get to keep choosing the direction we want to go in.
What if the unknown is the medicine? What if you don’t need to figure the way to YOUR GOOD life on your own and let yourself be supported and guided in your becoming?
Remember: Every ending is also a beginning with an ending unknown.
