I’m grateful for my personal growth. I’m so grateful for how far I have come since I was that awfulizing (a term my mother loved using) teen, whose stories spun so out of control that I thought that I shouldn’t be alive. I’m grateful I God said, “No, you are not done here.” I’ve had to learn some VERY hard lessons over the years, but I took them all on head first and here I am. The word collage below is one I did a 35-Day A Better Me Boot Camp. It’s a project I have participants do to align with the person they want to project out to the world. I put my definition of love as the place that grounds me in my purpose. I have multiple creations I’ve made that I surround myself to remind me of the journey I’m on. I know it’s my job to align myself with the energy I want to project out to the world. That is why I’m here writing books and blogs. It’s why I do coaching and conferences. I keep growing, changing, and shifting into the best version of me available in the moment I’m in and I’m continuously learning to be and do better. By aligning my energy, I’ve attracted some of the most beautiful souls to my life who help take me further and deeper.
Today, I commit to honoring my personal growth. I’m taking time to reflect on how far I’ve come. Our journey here isn’t about being perfect. It’s about learning, growing, changing, shifting, and transforming into the best version of ourselves that we can in this moment. I still learn a lot daily. I just had a big growth spurt to see stories that were still aligning with the energy of fear, lack, and separation. I didn’t fail because of the things that surfaced, I was given an opportunity to grow. How we talk to ourselves shows our growth.
When I look in the mirror now, I love the woman looking back at me. I love my soul. I love how God sends people to me that I can help and/or who can help me. Each day, I live my life as a better me and that is because I truly honor my personal growth. I don’t just brush myself aside. I’m on my priority list. I know that when I take care of myself, I’m aligned to help others in a more authentic and loving way. When I neglect myself, I make up stories that effects how and why I serve others. I start expecting them to be different than they are. My personal growth has shown me what is mine, what is someone else’s, and what is God’s job.
