When we go through times of big change and transition, it can be both physically and mentally challenging and even draining. This is a totally normal response to all the new things that is happening and sometimes you just need a bit of extra support to keep yourself strong and grounded.
Being true to yourself takes Courage, as we worry about not being good enough as we are. We worry about what our friends and family will think when they get to know the real us. But, with time and practice, being ourselves is actually a lot easier and a huge relief.
It is “easy”, secure and safe to stay in the harbour; the familiar, well-known routines, situations that we feel comfortable with. Sometimes we might not even feel comfortable and happy with the situation, but at least we know what to expect. Yet, is that what life is about? Is that what will make us truly happy?
The Universe wants us all to thrive and succeed and be happy. So, when I boldly declared that I would now be better at saying ‘no’, the Universe thought “Great - let’s give her some opportunities to practice in!” Very kind of the Universe indeed!
When you spend time with people who believe in you, who encourage you, who challenges you to do better - in a compassionate and positive way - it will teach you so much about yourself (and others) and give you such a boost!
The more you focus on things you are good at, and acknowledge that these things and skills are equally “worthy” as the ones you need to fight and work hard for, your sense of achievement and satisfaction will grow. Find your Superpower and use it!
