I challenge you right now, today, to come out of hiding. Do you dare to sit down and have that honest conversation with yourself about how you really feel about your life?
In the words of legendary recording artist Phyllis Hyman, “Who do you think you are? Who do you want to be. You’re the only one that really knows...” Regardless of where you are in your life right now, this is crucial and let me tell you why, from my personal experience.
At 38, with two children, having moved back home with my parents and feeling like a failure, not just as a person, but as a mother and a daughter, I realized that I had to do SOMETHING to alter the direction of my life and the quality of my self-esteem. It took quite a bit of introspection, the unearthing deeply hidden self-limiting beliefs and a good deal of grudge work, but now I can finally admit aloud that I had spent the bulk of my life in hiding.
I’ve hidden behind other people’s expectations of me, things that I’ve considered personal failures, relationship roles, job titles, my feelings, excuses. If you can name it, at some point or another I’ve probably unsuccessfully tried hiding behind it. Hiding from what you ask? Well, would believe me if I said it had gotten to a point where I simply did not even know??
So, when I made the decision to unlock and unblock my growth, it was because I had become completely sick and tired choosing, yes I said CHOOSING, to simply exist knowing and feeling how unfulfilled I was rather than living and thriving in my purpose and passions.
In order to do that stand walk and talk in my truth, I had to, first and foremost, identify the roles, behaviors and mindsets I had not only been hiding behind, but also habitually and unconsciously using to sabotage myself.
So, I ask you; Do you accept the challenge? Are you willing to acknowledge the lie(s) that are holding your dream life hostage??
I dare you to have that conversation and when you do and should you feel the need to talk about it feel free to connect with or contact me.
