We grow by first accepting what is and then heal from what was.
To look past the fear, the reactions of others, and the feeling of what is to come we need to be still in this moment and allow ourselves to be open. Open to life happening for us rather than to us. To trust that your grief can be your grace, that timing will always be perfect in what is to unfold, and that if it feels scary.. leap! because sometimes chances only come once.
If we don’t change we don’t grow. If we don’t grow we aren’t really living.– Gail Sheehy
Our minds are the engines to our body and soul, its where we hold our power. So where is your key kept? Is it given to the noise of your surroundings or is it kept in your heart? By unlocking our minds from our hearts and opening up to acceptance we can decide what it is we deserve, that we are worth it all and that fear only keeps us playing small.
We know challenges bring huge opportunities for awareness, knowledge, lessons and growth but do we also recognise that it’s a space we can pivot. To reset, focus and continue to grow. To grow from what was to what is possible.
So what if 2020 is exactly that? A year of teaching. It has not only made us feel uncomfortable in change but also discover the very comfort we can find in our own internal connection of our body – mind – spirit. Your wellbeing is not just what you see but what you speak, feel and hear. Language isn’t just our voice but our actions. Maybe we were sitting in a place of resistance to change, adapt and move, and this virus has been the key to unlocking all we needed to face and move through.
So see this time, this year, as a gift. Let’s remove the limits we place on time, so to become limitless. To pay attention to the beauty in the simple things that are always around us. Gain an alignment back to our path of resilience, trust and acceptance to where we can be as a person, community and world.
Accept the need to change, work for change and then become the change.
Breathe, step forwards and inwards because the ‘right time’ will always be now.
