We’re taught from a very young age to: shut up and not express our feelings so we don’t make others feel uncomfortable; please others so they will accept us; do what’s practical; prepare for the worst; don’t take any chances; blah, blah, blah, etc. ad infinitum. So how’s that been working for you?!
I’ve learned that suppressing your authenticity makes you emotionally, mentally and physically sick – YUCKO and no thank you! Expressing yourself and living your truth is the only thing that will fill that void, that black hole in our soul that we try to fill with business, things and addictions.
As you know, I’m in the midst of a major transition in my life. I am following my intuition by giving up my job, most of my earthly possessions and moving across the country to start a whole new life. I am following that still, small voice within, the “call” to be, do and have something greater that I can also share with others. It’s scary as hell and I don’t know what awaits me on the other side, BUT I feel so sure, exhilarated and an overwhelming sense of peace, joy and fulfillment. I feel free and immune to what others say or think. I simply “know” this is the right next step that will lead to something important and amazing, and anything that I need along the way will show up in synchronistic and miraculous ways. This must be what “daring greatly” feels like!
Mel’s Two Cents: I highly recommend expressing yourself and living your truth. It feels amazing! Being authentic and vulnerable will attract people and opportunities that resonate with you and lead you to the life of your dreams. If I can do it, so can you!
Thank you for accompanying me on this crazy adventure. How else can I be a good counselor, coach and teacher if I don’t have some first hand experience?!
FYI: There will be no blog next week as I will be packing and traveling, but follow me on Instagram @mels2cents as I will be posting updates there.
Until next time.
