If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
There is a moment when the dirt and the dust rises up in your life, maybe it is abuse, lack of money, lack of kindness, whatever it is. There is a turning point when you stand still in time.
Everything stops. It is very quiet. You say, this is going to change.
You become a radical demand for change in your life, and in that moment, the world shifts. It is a glorious shift into the light when you know you’re knowing, again. When you stand in the brightness of you. This is you that everyone else always knew and you somehow forgot.
When you ask a question. What can I be and do different, today?
Then in that moment, when you know that your life can be different, and you know that something better exists, you ask for more. It could be a job that has to change. It could be your income has to change. It could be a relationship must change.
Do not fear this moment. Do not be afraid when you need to change something that no longer serves you. Now you can step outside of your comfort zone, and then you’re going to step outside of your comfort zone again. A few things you might like to know on your journey:
You’re not alone. When you brave new pathways into light, when you accept more money for being you, when you accept a new position, when you move into a new home – you have done something that will inspire everyone around you, and those for miles around them.
We influence people to three degrees of separation when we experience extreme joy. Are you willing to be a conduit for joy today? It’s a bold request, for it is easier to stand in the muck and the mire of the past, wishing life were different.
I’m not innocent in this, I have accepted abuse, I have tolerated more than I would ever wish any of my children to tolerate. And yet, as I stand in the space for today, I ask for new opportunities, and I embrace them with grace and vulnerability.
For as lightning strikes, and it sometimes does feel like lightning has struck, I am going to be changed in this moment of asking and demanding more. And the road will show up. It will appear, I have faith in this moment, beyond faith, and beyond faith again.
Change is insanely possible, always. Are you willing to ask for more? Are you willing to stand in the place where brave new pathways may have not ever actually been walked upon? This place is uncomfortable and then joyful, and then uncomfortable, and then joyful. Extreme happiness is possible now, when you ask for your life to change.
I’ll be here cheering you on.
