7 Ways to Follow Through With Being Brave

Some may think of confidence as brave and some may find it an act of courage. Basically the most important is not the declaration that you will seek it. It is following through.

How many times have you begun something and locate a folly with the process and poof it is done there is no more?

The Lies We Tell OURSELVES

  • It is no big deal.
  • I am not hurting anyone.
  • I’ll try again on Monday or next  year.

Stopping the Madness

  • Acknowledgement is the first key.
  • Follow through is the next key
  • Finishing it to the end is the final key.

Acknowledgment:

Yes, you recognize the pattern. You know that you need to adjust the dial. So, let’s be brave by admitting that this is a problem and that there needs to be a change.

Follow Through: 

For some it is easy to begin something; but humans are not programmed to keep going. You were built to change and alter as it is necessary. However, do you keep eating when you are full, refuse to get off the couch, physically inflict pain to your body and the list goes on and on.

It takes 21 days to create a habit and 28 days for this to become a pattern that you will readily identify with. So, don’t be too harsh on yourself.  When there is a will there is a way and no one can stop you.

Anxiety is a nasty beast, but instead of letting the anxiety bully you. Stop, take a few deep breaths and count backwards 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and just do it.  Mel Robbins of 5 Second Rule has a great mojo.

Finishing it to the End

Another way to say follow through is to finish it to the end. Do not let anyone, including yourself, stop your flow. Get in your groove and go, go, go. You can do this!

Set a goal, it can be big or small; just set it. Count down 21 days and mark this on the calendar. Next, find an accountability buddy who will not only cheer you on, but will also call you out if needed. Make a pact with this individual; do it together or you go first and then immediately reciprocate.

Ready, set, the count down in on and 1 day will zip past and become 21 and voila. Go for another week and you’ve got this!!

9 Ways to Show Your True Colors

If you have read the first blog of the year, then you know there’s a surge of confidence gracing my words, pages and aesthetic. However, if you are just seeing this blog; please reference my Word of the Year post.

I adore the song True Colors by Cindy Lauper.  There is so much that resonates.  “… don’t be afraid …to show them Your true colors. True colors are beautiful. Like a rainbow.”  

We all have darkness that nests within. The small ego voice that says, “Don’t show them who you are.”

Better yet, do not listen to the ego; rise up & show you as the beautiful rainbow of chakra colors and aura that you are.

Courage 

Stand by Commitment Courageous Magical Blessings ConfidenceCourage is showing others who you are.  This is not the mask that is placed upon you and/or who you may believe that you are; rather this is who you are when you strip away the facades and stand with the Divine part of you.

Not everyone will find you to be their cup of tea, and that is just fine. Those who resonate with you, will also vibe with you.

Above all please stop asking permission to be you.

9 ways to Sprinkle a Dash of Boldness

  • Know your boundaries. Self care is a mega form of boundaries
  • Self Care is essential. Make time to do things that love you up!
  • Mentally allow yourself to change; ebb and flow like the seasons. Life will not remain constant and let yourself grow by learning, experiencing and living.
  • Physically love you up with nourishing foods, work out and rest with sleep and/or  just lazy days.
  • Emotionally allow yourself to feel. Open the flow and allow you to feel your feelings on a deep level. Do not dismiss them; invite them in and explore why you have these feelings and gently release this as lessons that can help you be happy, successful and amazing.
  • Spiritually connect with your version of Spirit. Have a nice conversation
  • Meditate; this does not have to be strict. This could be a 5 min. tea break. Sit and let your mind wander.
  • Be mindful of what you say to yourself. Speak lovingly, gently and softly to you.
  • Look at what you are thinking about others. Is this a way for you to focus on them, rather than looking at what you need and want.

Rise up and be you! There is no one like you; you are destined to be you, so why no just do it.

True Feelings Angel

Why it is Okay to Share Your True Feelings

It is okay to share your true feelings. The real question is, “Do you feel safe to share your true feelings?” 

Sharing Your Feelings

Once upon a time I shared my true feelings with another.  This came back and haunted me for years.  One, I was scared to death that anyone else would mistreat me in that manner.  Two, most people were not aware of my truth, and were quick to add judgement.  Yep, judge another. This is does not make sense to judge the one who’s feelings had been dismantled and misaligned from her own being. No one shall judge another, especially when one walks in a page 999; there are 998 pages before then.  We all have moments that have shaped us.

Judge No One

It is not okay to judge another.  Heck, it is not okay to impose your judgement of another on another individual.  Yet, there are times when we have all done this exact thing.  I recall a volatile work environment where judgment and condemnation was the foundation within the walls of this location.  This brings forth a hostile and unhealthy situation for all- even those who do not wish to participate.

We are all doing the best that we can.  No one has the critical analysis to bestow their opinions on another.  The old adage of do not judge a book by its cover or walk a mile in another’s shoes are great way to procure lack of judgement.

Caught Yourself Doing the Judging

Uh oh!  You’ve just caught yourself judging another.  Do not fret or worry. We all make mistakes. Gossiping is a mega human condition of the ego.  It is the internal celebration of competition. We do not need this; yet somehow if you accidentally slip; apologize to yourself, and create a projection of positive light energy of forgiveness to yourself and the whole situation.

Being Brave Enough to Change

I recently found myself in a group of others; I knew no one.  When someone mentioned something that I do not believe in; it was okay, it was accepted as my feelings and that was an amazing feeling. In that moment I felt as if I had found the Holy Grail and sippith from my Chalice of Divine Spiritual Waters. I felt safe to express me.

What about yourself? Once upon a time, I was super harsh on myself.  Super patient for others and none for me.  The worst feeling in the world was feeling unsafe and distrust for myself.  Yep, I did not trust me.  I did nothing wrong; I was scared to death that what happened in the past was forever and always.  Now, that does not mean that everyone is out to get me; nor does this mean that I am untrustable for being lead to believe that one cared about me, and used this against me. It means that I shall overcome what was done.  I am undoing the painful lessons and allowing myself the ability to trust again. In other words to feel safe.

Forgiveness of Self & Others

The ancient Hawaiian Mantra Ho’oponopono is a great tool to help with forgiveness.  Use your name, another’s name and/or situation. There is no wrong way to say this; so, if you wish to change the step- no worries.

Step 1: Surrender-– I’M SORRY

Step 2: Ask Forgiveness – PLEASE FORGIVE ME

Step 3: Gratitude – THANK YOU

Step 4: Love – I LOVE YOU

 

Feeling Emotionally Safe

  • Identify and challenge your toxic thoughts towards yourself.
  • Be open and speak up for yourself
  • Do not agree to everything.  Do not say yes when you really mean no.
  • Recognize that you may need assistance from another and that is okay.
  • Be Brave and ask for help.
  • Be consistent
  • Demonstrate commitment to you.
