The door to your own awesome life is wide open and you just need to go through it!
Oh how I used to hate these clever sayings that speak to your heart though you have no idea of how to do it!
In my active searching days I spent hours, days and weeks with finding the ultimate way to my happiness and was further away from my truth as you can imagine.
Every workshop, every book, every coaching gave me hope that there was a door that would miraculously open when I finished it. I felt that I was so close but no matter what I did I just couldn't find that bloody key to my door. And every single person had advice to give me that just really didn't help me at all: 💡Go with the flow
💡Don't think too much and it will happen
💡Connect to your heart and you will know what is right
ARGH!!!! I really just wanted someone to swoop in and do it all for me and take me through that door and over to the other side where everything was greener.
But one day, when my body collapsed and I had no other way but stay still I heard that voice that everyone was talking about. It was laughing and telling me that I really, really, really had to do the work myself (surprise, surprise). And I finally understood that I had to stop blaming everybody else for things and take personal responsibility.
For me that meant to look at all my 'well that's just the way I am' statements and understand where fear of change came from.
Accept certain attitudes I have and work on adjusting them.
Being aware of my manipulation techniques and stop them if they want to kick in.
All I can say is that I now know how to connect with my heart and live a great life and at the same time I still struggle in following my own advice 100% of the time.
I can show a very explosive temper given the right trigger but I choose to let it go (more often than not).
And I speak my truth whether you will unfollow me or not.
For some of us that might be admitting you need help.
For some it might be bungee jumping off a cliff backwards.

What a beautiful #morningprayer of #trust and #surrender , from Liturgy of the Hours:
Alone with none but thee, my God,
I journey on my way.
What need I fear, when thou art near,
O King of night and day?
More safe am I within thy hand,
Than if a host did round me stand.
My destined time is fixed by thee,
And death doth know his hour.
Did warriors strong around me throng,
They could not stay his power;
No walls of stone can man defend
When thou thy messenger dost send.
My life I yield to thy decree,
And bow to thy control
In peaceful calm, for from thine arm
No power can wrest my soul.
Could earthly omens e’er appal
A man that heeds the heavenly call!
The child of God can fear no ill,
His chosen dread no foe;
We leave our fate with thee, and wait
Thy bidding when to go.
’Tis not from chance our comfort springs,
Thou art our trust, O King of kings.
"...to fully engage in a life that doesn’t come with guarantees – these are risks that involve vulnerability and often pain."
Vulnerability makes me almost writhe with discomfort. I don't like the vulnerability of depending on other people or fully trusting others. Although I reveal a great deal of who I am publicly, I never reveal everything. I keep most people at a distance and only let a few in. But even those I let in never really see all of me. I simply can't be that vulnerable, revealing everything about who I am, cxnot even to people I love... maybe even especially to people I love.
It's crazy that I crave deep and intense connections while having a huge wall around me. Walls are not necessarily protective but, rather, isolating, insulating, safe. But that safety keeps me from fully experiencing joy and life and love completely so I'm always I pushing my own boundaries, trying to embrace vulnerability, trying to see vulnerability as a way to fully experience life, as a way of being free.
