We are all who the world has been waiting for, all of us. It is up to us to be the change we want to see in the world.
It is time to turn up our inner light and let it shine. It is time to drive out the darkness. It is time to crank up the love.
Friday was a horrible day for Paris and for the world. Our collective hearts are breaking at the horror and senseless tragedy.
You may be scared, you may think terrorists are lurking around every corner waiting to strike again. This is what they want.
How do we win?
By refusing to succumb to fear. By shining our light into every dark corner. By helping others. By bringing our biggest, brightest, most authentic selves forward.
Good always triumphs over evil. Always. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but in the end good will prevail.
We may feel helpless to conquer terrorism as individuals, but we are not helpless when we rise together.
We start by facing our own fears. What are you afraid of? What are you not facing in your own life?
What scares you? What keeps you from being your authenic self? What are you hiding from?
For me, I spent years in a career that made me miserable simply because I was afraid to make a change. What if I left and didn't make enough money? What if I didn't make the right decision and ended up regretting it? Little did I know my biggest regret was wasting years of my life worrying about it instead of taking action.
Most of all, I was afraid of what people would think. I kept telling myself I didn't know what I really wanted to do with my life and I really talked myself into believing it.
The truth is, deep down I really did know. I was just scared of the answer. It seemed too hard to make it a reality. It wasn't an easy path. I had to do work. Hard work. What would people think about me being a Life Coach?
Fear stops us from living.
When I started to get really clear with who I am and what I believe, the pieces started falling into place.
It's been over a year since I officially opened my Life Coaching practice and I couldn't be happier. My clients are amazing, strong, brave people who are showing up and making big changes in their lives. They fill my heart with gratitude.
I was born to help people as a peacemaker and lightworker in this world. Maybe you were too. I've overcome my fear about what people think. Maybe people have made fun of me or laughed or thought I would surely fail.
Truth is, it doesn't matter what anyone thinks.
People around the world are waking up, they are seeing that love and peace are what matters.
I challenge you to examine your own life. What are you hiding from? Where are you feeling stuck? Start there, as Mr. Rogers says...look for the helpers.
As John Lennon says "You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one, I hope someday you join us and the world will live as one."
