Yesterday I wrote a post about being unashamedly and beautifully you.
I spoke about being relentlessly passionate about allowing yourself to shimmer forth into the light and let yourself be seen in all your beauty.
But what happens if all that beauty hasn’t quite yet arrived?
Or what happens if you feel like it never will?
What happens when the person you are today, isn’t the person you know you really want to be tomorrow?
What happens when you feel like you are trapped in a life that isn’t a true reflection of who you really are?
Should you hide away and wait until all the messiness and chaos goes away and you emerge in a much more beautiful and “together” way?
In a world of data profiling and internet virtual footprints, this can be a difficult decision to make.
If you find yourself in this place, take a minute and repeat after me:
“Everything is going to be ok.
I can change my life if I want.
It might take some time.
And it might take some courage.
But I know small steps add up to big achievements.
When I fall I will get back up and try again, and in doing so I will give myself opportunities to make the changes in my life I want.
The person who I am today, does not define the person I will become tomorrow.”
Sometimes you may want to take yourself away from the world for a while and put yourself back together. If you get to this point, know it’s perfectly ok. Most of us have been there at least once in our lives, and unfortunately most of us will go through it again at another.
When this happens, remind yourself.
Self Care always comes first.
Take some time out if you need, but don’t give up.
Even though you are not in the place you want to be today, doesn’t mean you aren’t allowed to start taking those steps to get there.
Set yourself a goal.
Remind yourself of what you love.
And take small steps every day to get yourself where you want to be.
Then when you are ready to face the world again, hold your head high and step onto stage, knowing that everything you have been through has made you all the more stronger because of it.
If you need some help moving forward, there is a free daily goal checklist below. It’s really simple, but if setting 12 week goals is still a little too much for you, it’s a great place to begin.
