From childhood, teenager, and now an adult this picture reminds me of the bubbles I lived in; not fully living in my full essence. I lived through my silence and not enter-standing and my authentic self. These bubbles carried peoples opinions, and how my life should be. Soon realizing these bubbles confined my thoughts, emotions, and choices. Just as the photo display a person, lions & lioness. Is the person the controller or the animals? Are the animals angry because they have no more control over that person? Have that person stop living in fear? Are these emotions now controlled in that person favor? I say bubbles, the photo shows animals and one person.
My creativity was dismiss and ignored. At times my vibrations was low. I begin to unlearn much that was taught to me growing up. I developed a new start and releasing the old. I begin to pop one bubble at a time. I felt different, yet lighter and free. I realize my true emotions were controlled by others.
Pop, false thoughts about me were gone. Pop, no more doubt vanished. Pop, others opinions were their perspective, but not mines. Pop, silence no more, I have a voice. Pop, not your life, this is my life. Pop, the blindfolds are gone, thanks, but I can see my own way now. Pop, suppress feelings and emotions, I can manage myself. Enough damage have been done. Learning my own love languages(Like). Those bubbles were containments with no option, no growth. Knew it had to be more outside restriction and restraints(Pop).
I think back and realize there were separation in in my division. I was set apart from key components of myself. I knew being discouraged was not real. Walking away was best for me. I am loveable and a warrior. Destroying destructive behaviors that wasn’t mines, done. Pop, incapable, they say. No, capable, I say. The more I popped, the more I was free by others.
The love, beauty and passion for writing helps me grow. Meeting new people is freedom. When I begin to transform more into myself, I remain strong like a tree and bloom like flowers.
When you come to a place of what’s working for you, you are Free2BYou. Move away from suppression and achieve in greatness of yourself. Build your home filled with your own memories, stories, new adventures and your resting place. Continue to learn patience, and embrace your pace.
To be conditioned to think a certain type of way(s) I ask, are you free? Denying yourself, and live inside someone else’s bubbles, do you feel replenished? Rules and guidelines are functions of someone else bubbles, what’s your thoughts about that? You have great ideas, but you’ve been told, you don’t have enough education or skills, do you believe that?
We all have a multitude of gifts and talents, never stop loving what you do. Be inspired and inspire others. Chose to accept or not accept.
“We decide to control our emotions or be consumed by them”
Unknown writer of this quote. And powerful photo of many life lived and living stories.
When I look at this picture, I see only one hand reaching up. This reflection ignites my entire being for many levels.
1) Given so much to gain very little from others. When my cup ran empty, I had nothing to replenish back into myself. Nothing sad or regretful to say the least or more, just lessons learned and still learning.
2) boundaries was unheard of. “No way”, that meant, I would be selfish in helping others, and neglect myself with disappointments was ok “ I deal with my needs later. I had to start rehearsing and practicing say “no”.
3) Once I began to reflect on myself, all those hands I extending outwardly to everyone else began to shift towards me, inwardly and outwardly. I actually begin to see all these hands for the first time, which were always mines and always visual, and always there. I was blind to the fact that I am a servant to caring for oneself first. When I needed a lending hand(s), they were already taking, full, and reserved by others(my choice).
4) I begin to restore myself into myself. Those extended hand(s)out to others first were ending. I understood boundaries, self love, healing, spending time with myself, relationship with oneself, and so much more.
5) We sometimes have to lose ourselves to find ourselves. No fault finding, no regrets, only gratefullness. It was me, that I learned from pass lessons in a more loving way than angry way.
6) Take a minute to reflect in your own life, and question are you really taking care of yourself or are you’re not? And how can you make a difference in your space? You are responsible for you. You will always have you! Don’t take it for granted. Lata!
First to admit that changes are needed somewhere in my daily life. We as a whole need positive support in the growth and development with one exception don’t stop Being who You are , but to continue to “B who U R”. Being difficult is not a bad thing. Self care is taking care of YOU! And if that means hurting feelings, it’s not intentional, it’s just the way it has to be. You have a voice. You have the final choice through your voice. Be firm and love that you love yourself that much.
My favorite phrase when people feel that I’m difficult “Yes, I’m difficult, so now you know I’m not easy”! Love and keep loving who you are and continue to heal through challenges. Have no regrets😉
Allow your purpose to drive your feelings. You will grow to know that the best fulfillment are the things you most enjoy and love. Spend sometime with your thoughts, and allow your journey to begin. You will never regret it.
He said “ Don’t be afraid. I will protect you. Love you. Listen to you. I will work to understand you, but I need your help. I will honor and respect you. Don’t be afraid”.
She said “I’m trying. Heard it all before. I love emotionally. I am a woman, queen, warrior, balance spiritually, never underestimate my thoughts. Still healing. Willing. Taking my time this time. Be patient with me. I’m trying”.
He said “ I am with you. Let’s work together. I will talk to you, nurture you. My actions will speak to you even when I’m not present”.
She said, We will work together. Trying for each other. We are a team”. Sigggghhhh…
They look into each other essences, speaking together “Trying”
Life Coach began with coaching myself. Reading, writing, meditation, gardening, listening through my heart, mind, voice, action and continued work became many support pillows around me. The fall of something shifting became lighter in my discomfort of something. I learned that darkness wasn’t bad, yet good. Through my own dark days, I began to heal. See many areas of needed work. I was so use to going outward instead of inward. I use to feel sad and a shame of myself. Through those dark days, a spark of light would appear. The message was clear and understanding. Thoughts of helping others would not be taking away because I had a normal life just like them. Hiccups come, and the go. Having my own challenges to deal with wasn’t a bad thing. It’s was ok to not have an answer for everything. I felt supported for me and being with me.
Shifting and changing my way of thinking became clear. Learning to enter inwardly, first was important. Checking in with self, expressed how much I care and adore myself. To care for others continues. My lesson was pretty simple. Inward and outward. Today, that sticks with me. It made so much sense. Just that small adjustment made all the difference. Darkness became my light through life. It became a healing mechanism not only for me but for others in a much healthier way. Life Coach is one of many passion and purpose of mines. it’ s away of living, giving back and receiving the fulfilment of making and doing a difference.
Life Coaching is something that can’t be rushed. It takes time. You have high levels of happiness and joy, and low levels of sadness and discouragement. Learning and growing at the same time is never wasted time even when you can’t see it or feel it. Know it’s there working in your favor. Like riding a wave on a high, and on a low.
Walk into your love first. Once you create time for you, everything else will follow smoothly. I had to learn that, so now, I continue to work towards that with great pleasure.
Disclaimer: When you’re writing, not always, your writing have to be perfect and structured. Just be yourself sometimes, and enjoy what you do without reading, changing something because it doesn’t flow. Regardless, those that like you will continue to like you. 💐🦾💫🦋😉
With so much going on around the world, I see more and not see more chaos than ever before. It’s so easy to get snatched into the whirlwind of never endings of confusion. Once you feel like things are getting better, it interchanges with a smack down knock out.
From my perspective, it’s a new discovery of my days are much shorter. From one moment to the next, making moves and getting things done is now, or never. One task can last an entire day, while other tasks goes undone. I had to pause and check in. Take a moment, even hours to relax and release.
I am presently, writing, enjoying sounds of quietness. Yes, tardy for others things that can wait. It’s not going anywhere.
Being absent, yes and no. Yes, of demands of outside stuff. No, not absent of what I need right now…rest, and the simple moments.
Where am I now? In my sacred place, eating pasta for breakfast @11:08 am in the morning. Loving this moment.
Stay connected with yourself through all the tugs and pulls. Merge off the expressway sometimes, park your vehicle and you, and ease your dis-Ease. Expressway way can mean anything that’s on your to-do-list in some cases.
