Oooohhh this has been something I have been putting off for such a long long time, so many fears, so many worries.
Will people still like me?
Will people think I'm having a midlife crisis?
Will people think I'm weird?
Will people be talking about me at the school gate?
Will people think I've gone to the dark side?
Haha truth is most people probably couldn't care less or even notice! And they won't treat me any differently to how they do now. They may be confused as to why I never mentioned it before but I'm still me, with a few new 'hobbies'!
Crystals and angels, meditating and visualising, self development and tuning into my intuition. I still love a glass or 2 (or 3 or 4) of gin and tonic, watching funny films, wearing jeans and trainers, spending time with my family & friends, speaking to clients, applying lash extensions, teaching.
I'm still me!
The only things I'm giving up, or at least trying to, are dramas, negativity, people pleasing, listening to that voice in my head that puts me down and a bigggie......... procrastinating!!
Fear can stop us in our tracks, and unless we follow our true desires and peel away the barriers we put up to protect ourselves we can stay stuck forever! Think about that for a minute........ stuck forever, spending the rest of our lives wishing we had followed our heart rather than worry what other people think of us. Spending our lives the way we think others want us too, rather than how we really want to.
I have spent a long time lost and stuck, paralysed, unable to move forward because of fear. Unable to see clearly which direction I should go in.
Today, I realised, I don't need to go in any direction, I just need to be true to me..
Embrace the things I love, they are all part of me and I don't need to choose one over the other.
Today I release needing to know all the answers, needing to control things, and I make space for all I desire to come into my life.
I love & approve of myself, unconditionally.
