Basking in Reality
WOW! For all those times my conditioned brain told me, “You’re not doing enough” . . . F-U . . . because I am in awe with today, revelling and basking in what I once dared not to see, and now get to see as my reality.
Starting the morning with peer coaching . . . sitting across another powerful female Asian life coach, Kavita Popli, from across the 🌎 . . . we are both here to break the rules of oppressive should be’s and should do’s of the world! Tony Robbins has nothing on us! 💓💓💓
Followed by earth-shaking experience of being in the presence of 6 God-sent women of colour, all on one screen, merging our mind and hearts together to bring something magical to this world. (It took me years to allow myself to experience myself not in competition, but in collaboration with a group of women who look like me and can relate to me.) What was spoken and shared in that room is going to send riveting waves of “what the fuck?! I’m not the only one?”, “wow this is what it feels like to be SEEN and HEARD for the first time?!” experiences. EEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKSSSS the excitement is uncontainable! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
Today also being the milestone start of another 6 months of life coaching with 2 of my clients!!! (I used to think I was going to be a famous lighting designer at 40. I did not see life coaching as my true calling.)
It truly is an honour to walk alongside both of them (and my collective clients) because together, I am certain we are raising the consciousness of millions right now.
📌 One client shared that their coaching feels like being on “a rooftop . . .there are no walls . . . you can see all the way around you and it’s limitless what you’re capable of.” (Is this a powerful visual or what?) ✨💥🔥
📌 The other client shared “I can’t believe how much I’m getting done. It’s not that I’m working faster, I’m way more focused . . . I think most of it is just being able to step back and find solutions and asking for help . . .there’s a fck yeah for everything . . . I am really just believing in myself.” (Did I mention that she is a mother of a toddler with another one coming on the way, also helping her husband with his business AND running her own coaching business?!) 🤯🤯🤯
Finally, I am sitting here now allowing myself to slow down long enough to celebrate and giving myself permission 💜 to share the bliss that I’m feeling . . . I didn’t have to put pressure on myself, shoulding all over myself to receive this love. I simply recognized what I wanted to see and said yes to seeing it.
I don’t have a perfect life or a perfect mind, but I do have a perfectly unique way of being human that works just for me. That is enough for me.
What does your perfectly unique way of being human look like for you?
What are you revelling and basking in today?
P.S. It might have worked all those years to numb out and go with the flow but right here, right now, you get to choose to truly have it all.
The fear AND the love.
The times you retreat AND the times you shine.
You get to have your full human experience now.
