Choosing to put in the work towards living a better life and going from existing to living isn't easy. In fact, it's extremely difficult, which is why I believe most people don't take the time to do so themselves. People want automatic results. They want to see dramatic change in 6 months...or even a year.
News flash. For many, real change may take years and years. Are you, yourself, willing to put in the work? I hope the answer is yes. A scared yes? Maybe.
But I hope it's a yes.
I learned a lot of hard truths that felt like a punch to my soul the past few years. I've learned things I didn't want to hear or accept. The journey is kind of like going to the dentist (At least for me). You go in dreading the appointment. You feel a little scared of what your Dr. may find in your mouth. You feel a little uncomfortable while they scrape away the shit off of your teeth. One cavity you say? Damn...but you know getting it fixed is the right move. And at the end of the appointment, your teeth look good and you feel like a million bucks. A sigh of relief until the next appointment.
The journey of change feels like that to me. I went in scared. I hated the feeling of the hard internal work that was being done. I had some things (many) that needed to be fixed. But I came out better and happier. And the journey continues...
So, are you ready to go on your journey? Are you ready to stop existing and start living?
Here are the TOP SEVEN things I want you to know and digest.
1. You are the ONLY one that's standing in your way. PERIOD.
2. If you don't love yourself, why do you think you'll make good choices for yourself?
3. There's nothing wrong with you. You're just unlearning toxic behaviors and patterns.
4. Success is to make a positive change in the world, but in order to do that you have to change yourself.
5. You don't need to explain your choices to anyone.
6. Overthinking will keep you frozen in time.
7. Love. Just learn to love, everyone.
