I'll get started tomorrow...
Maybe I'll get started next week...
Next month things will settle down and I'll get started then...
This year just hasn't been good for me, I'll get a fresh start next year...
I hope I'll get to it one day...
Maybe I'll try again in my next life...
I know I've found myself here many times before.
But then I heard someone really wise say, "there's only two ways to heal -- now or later."
And it hit me... I'm just going to keep repeating the same cycles over and over again until I learn what I need to learn and grow beyond (transcend and include) the current version of myself with my limiting beliefs that are holding me back from realizing my potential.
So what am I waiting for? I have the free will to keep living the same life I'm living just as much as I have the free will to change it. No one is coming to save you from yourself because the Self is all there is. The more we continue to look "out there" for solutions to our problems instead of looking in the mirror, the more we continue to perpetuate the illusion that we don't already possess the capacity to heal ourselves and therefore continue to blame others or our circumstances or continue to wait until '"things" change before we give ourselves permission to BE the change.
There's a version of yourself that's already everything you were meant to be.
Right here and right now.
All you have to do is let go of who you are so that you can become who you might be.
Easier said that done, I know. But that potential is right here nonetheless if you choose to REALize it.
Why are you holding on to things that no longer serve you?
Being stuck is just as uncomfortable as doing the work to grow (aka let go aka surrender to what is aka become who you already are).
What's worse? Feeling like you're repressing yourself by choosing not to engage in the same activities/patterns/behaviors that are comfortably creating more pain in your life or actually repressing yourself by not becoming who you KNOW you have the potential to be?
If you're going to inevitably wake up anyways, why not start right now?
But as I've said, you have the free will to do whatever you want to do. This is just an invitation, never a dictation.
Always with love,
