This past week, I experienced one of the most amazing times of my life. I enjoy exploring mini self-journeys that often helps me to awaken my creativeness. You know, the kind of insightful moments most people don’t care to take because they may not like what they discover? I find when I inquire of myself, I can see life a little differently. I accompanied a group of women who dared to be great. Each one of us courageously faced our fears that, up until now, has held us hostage. We came from as far as Canada to reveal old habits and create new paradigm shifts for our futures in Los Angeles, CA.
During the event, there were moments I noticed how much I’d grown in the last four years and what it took for me to get here. Today, what some may see is an outspoken and determined woman who served in the armed forces, but it wasn’t always this way. For years, I hid my personality because, after several life-events, I was so discouraged and lost that I achieved very little for several years (of course, this was a massive default after being medically retired). I’d lost my identity. I entered the military very young, and functioning as a soldier is all I knew (so, I thought). It felt as if I was waiting around for someone to tell me what I needed to do before I initiated tasks or begin working towards my dreams. Everything I’d been envisioning of becoming was delayed. Even-though, the answers were already within me.
I needed to connect with others who understood what I was feeling and who were as equally passionate about moving their lives forward as I was. I watched each woman claim her genuine and authentic self as she leaned-in to learn more of what’s available for her if she allowed the possibilities to flow in her heart.
That made me think of you. Being open to receive new concepts, support, and guidance is not a bad thing. The first step is recognizing the path you’re walking. If that pathway leads to what could be a dead-end, it’s time to examine other avenues. Yes, your pride will have to be acknowledged, but not considered an option when wanting to move beyond the circumstances. Otherwise, it’s laborious to make the shift happen. I want to extend the invitation of making a change in your life that allows you to become stronger, wiser, and more courageous than you’ve ever been before?
