I’m leaving for a while and here’s the vulnerable truth of why…
For those of you who know me personally you know vulnerability is my super power.
But for those of you who know me virtually it might seem like my life is sunshine, rainbows, trips around the world, smoothies and meeting Oprah.
You also might think that I have it all figured out.
I’ve been through hell in my life and this last year, although there have been many reasons to celebrate, there were also days when I laid in bed physically exhausted and emotionally drained from the grind.
I also spent so much time in front of my computer helping others, that I have started to develop health and wellness challenges myself.
But still I rise.
“Fall seven times, stand up eight”, right?
No matter how many times life has knocked me down, and it’s been many.
I stand back up.
However, not without sitting there for a while, looking around and inquiring as to how I got there.
This is one of those times.
I’ve spent so much time helping others it’s begun to cost me myself.
And I do not want to end up a charlatan.
So when I’m not feeling in alignment myself. It’s time to take a step back from helping others and do some deep inner work.
This work, which I most recently mapped out and coined as the “21 Day VividLife Quest”
is the very foundation of what I’ve always used to help myself and then developed into a program to help mentor others.It’s principles are how I live my life, however this time around there have been no sign ups and I’ve been thrown for a loop.
What’s wrong with me?
Do people not see my value?
Do people not see it’s value?
But there have been so many people helped, so many impeccable reviews, I don’t get it?
Oh but I do…
Part of my “21 Day VividLife Quest” requires that you fill out a VividLife Intent sheet every 21 days where you state in 12 different categories what you intend to incorporate into each that fills your cup of life and assists you in living the life you desire.
And I assign each person an accountability buddy, including myself.
Today is our day to meet.
I haven’t filled out my sheet and I haven’t made myself a priority in my own life and I believe that this is the Universe’s, God’s, whatever you choose to believe in’s, way of giving me the opportunity to be in alignment.
So I’m going to listen.
As of today I am signing off Social Media to embark on completing my own “21 Day VividLife Quest”.
It’s time for me to get back on the path. The path that’s designed for me. The one that fills my cup.
Not that there won’t be challenges, cause there will, but when I am in alignment, when my cup is full, I can, from a space of inner and outer strength, “be the change” and give that to the world with all I’ve got.
After all this is my purpose:
To be a Vivid example of how “when life gives you lemons…”, you make lemonade, and share the recipe with everyone you meet 😉
I will be sharing my journey through blogs on my website and newsletter. You can follow or sign up for my newsletter here
