So if you’ve found me either a while ago or just recently you may be wondering why there hasn’t been any new content posted for months.
The quick and simple answer is that I am in the full blown process of learning, getting clarity, writing, creating, and launching a brand new website and business designed to give YOU the best of what I have to offer and what I feel compelled to share with those who are looking for the inspiration and strategies to navigate life with greater ease.
I am so excited about the new design, the new content, and the new programs and offerings I am creating just for you. So please, please bear with me and know that some really great stuff is brewing and coming your way. These things can’t be rushed but I pray to deliver by mid-June.
It’s going to be awesome and I can’t wait to share it with you.
I am no stranger to fear. We know each other well. I’m sure you can relate. We often speak and act or not act out of fear. Fear that they won’t like us. Fear that they won’t love us. Fear that we aren’t good enough. Fear that we will lose whatever it is that we are clinging to. Fear that we will fail. Fear that we will succeed. Fear that…
The list of fears is endless and they dominate our lives and dictate how we show up everyday in every way. Everything that you see that is wrong with the world is happening because of and out of fear.
But what we don’t realize is that there is nothing wrong at all. There is nothing wrong with the world or us. Everything is in Divine Order.
The truth is that every act of fear leads us down a path that eventually forces us to change or takes us deeper into the darkness. You either grow or you die.
It doesn’t matter which because you are fulfilling the cycle of life either way. Everything grows and eventually dies. Period. But we all have a choice to grow and be the change and hope we want to see in the world by choosing the path that leads to the light and by showing up with love, grace and truth in what we do and say or we can choose the path of darkness and of pain and struggle by showing up with fear. It’s your choice – growth and ease or pain and struggle.
My hope is that you choose to grow for as long as you have a choice in the matter. It just makes for a more beautiful world when we are all thriving and growing into the full bloom of ourselves, wouldn’t you say!?
View your life with KINDSIGHT
Stop beating yourself up about things from your past.
Instead of slapping your forehead and asking,
“What was I thinking?”
Breathe and ask yourself the kinder question,
“What was I learning?”
– Karen Salmansohn
A friend of mine sent me this quote today and I thought I’d share it with you. It certainly applies to all of us at any given moment. If you’re like me you’re always literally or figuratively slapping your forehead and wondering what the heck you were thinking in regards to something you said, did, didn’t say or do.
We can find a thousand things a day to chastise ourselves over and feel guilty about but what if you changed your perspective completely and embraced all your countless mistakes and mishaps, bad decisions, and less than stellar moments and thought of them as a multitude of blessings and opportunities to learn and grow.
I personally think Ms. Salmansohn is onto something here with her twist on hindsight. Yes, Kindsight is the new hindsight. Judge yourself less for past missteps and instead congratulate yourself for another lesson learned in the classroom of Life. Because at the ripe age of 40 I have certainly come to see life as a class with many lessons to learn and opportunities to grow. It’s really why we are here. So no need to beat yourself up for getting the answer wrong instead be kind to yourself and a good student by seeking the lesson in all the choices you make. No matter what the outcome, good or bad, you’ll do better next time.
Just remember, you’re not failing…you’re growing!
