My Family’s Story on Death and Loss… May 6th was his birthday. This was a date my mom always acknowledged every year as I was growing up. This is the only whole family photo we have. It was an unplanned family photo and quickly taken one day. (That’s...
I am claiming my POWER back. I am strengthened. I move forward. As you move through life pieces of your power can get displaced. Without recognition, your power can get stuck in the past through traumas, repeating stories or patterns that robs you of your power. You...
I am SHOWING up! Life, reveal your goodness to me. Show up fully and present… for the conversation, for the chance, for your turn, for the gift, for the answer, for the moment…. LIFE… (repeat it) I am showing up! So much gets taking care of for us...
“This is part of your growing edge”, she said. The words casually passed from a beloved friend to me for comfort and encouragement as I was navigating a new, life-stretching situation. The words began looping in mind like a song lyric on repeat. More and more, I found myself taking in the words with an affirming yes. “This is part of my growing edge.” I haven’t stopped reflecting on that statement since that day. And even better, I can see it everywhere bubbling to the surface.
This growing edge doesn’t belong only to “them”, “him” and “her”. It belongs to all of us in some capacity in our own way. Now more than ever, each of us, are being invited to look deeper into the thresholds we need to cross individually and collectively. The powerful gift the growing edge offers is a shift of
A picture is worth a 1000 words. It’s true. The classic storyline of the “before and after”. The brain processes imagery at an exceptional speed. Advertisers, marketers, and people selling results know the power punch a single image can produce. The overweight body to toned and thin. Single and alone to an embracing love. Money pains to money gains. A cluttered mess to a feng shui success. A small unspoken spirit to a dazzling out-spoken soul. The list goes on and on. Pictures, phrases and desires plastered everywhere in images attempting to motivate, sell or inspire.
We look at the “after” photos and think. Wow, aren’t they amazing? And yes, the transformational results are. However, the real power started in the “before” picture. The brave soul who stepped forward. Made a new choice. Took the first step. Broke the silence. Began the program. Declined the drink. Went to the gym. Had the hard conversation. Made amends. Formed a commitment. Said yes. Said no. Made a decision to set a new trajectory of self-transformation.
“Have the audacity to be authentic.” This statement feels bold, something brave people say. Or it’s an option we use when the time is right. It can be a permission pass we give ourselves to show up more fully, but only if conditions are right enough to take action. Make the decision. Speak up. Raise our hands, and say, “Yes, count me in!’ or “No, count me out”. Being authentic can also sound like a really nice extra-curricular activity we do when the picture-perfect life has arrived.
Authenticity is the fresh air… I breathe today!
Authenticity is fresh air from your soul. It fuels you with life. If you deny your authenticity you will feel yourself shrinking and becoming small. Authenticity lets you soulfully (so fully) expand.
You need your genuine power to be fueled with acts of authenticity to fuel your inspiration. Be full-on in your presence. Let your personal authenticity activate stronger. Strengthen your authentic expression.
Authenticity is allowing yourself to be the author of your life, your power, and your presence!
Breathe it, feel it, be it… in each moment with all you do, today and for the week.
Energize your expression with the fresh air of your authenticity!
Let it rise.
