vulnerability

My first radio interview

Thanks to a friend, this past week I had an opportunity to be interviewed on the radio for The Gallery for Inspiration™.   This was a first.  I'd never been interviewed on the radio before.

It was nice that I wasn't obsessing about the upcoming interview.  I went on about my days doing my usual things and only preparing a small amount in a way that felt right to me.  I felt both calm and excited.

Three Bears Experience in Finding Support

Are you someone who has made big changes in your life?  Perhaps you're opening to consider a bigger picture and there's not a lot of people you can talk to about your experiences?  It's natural to want to be around others who are also in a good space.  Or perhaps you're struggling and could really use some support right about now.

It's clear to me who the friends, acquaintances, and others are that I want to share all or only certain parts of me with.  So it's very important that I make time to meet with genuinely supportive people where I can bring all of me.

Habits that Create the Best Possibilities

Here are some things I practice to be aware of.  We all have our own ways to be at our best and attract our best possibilities and these may or may not work for you.  It's whatever supports you and empowers you.  For me, with so many experiences that I'm having just about every day now, it's helpful to remember and practice whatever feels right at the time.  It's pretty ordinary yet offering a beautiful shift in my day....

TMI

When I share with people that I give talks, I also share that I'm nervous about public speaking.  Totally TMI right?  However, even Adele tells people she's scared when she sings to crowds, sometimes she tells the crowds just before she begins another song.  "I love you but you really really scare me", is what I remember she said. 

Trying to Resist Vulnerability

I sometimes hold back to do something that stretches me because I feel vulnerable.  Instead I may choose to run an errand or even write a <this> blog post.  However, I literally feel myself being assisted and encouraged.  My guidance is so patient and gratefully, it’s also persistent.  Get out there.  Be bold....

Life isn't a marathon - Observe a child

It’s an honor to be in the presence of a child.  Children have the most free spirits and unbridled joy.  They can swing to tears in a mere second, but in the next moment they’ve moved on.  They put their happiness out there, totally enjoy the moment and don’t care how their happiness pours out of them.  They skip, jump, and say really cute stuff.  I notice they don’t self-edit. If a child wrote this blog post, the post might say something like…

Authenticity

Seems I’m at a point where the challenge of being my true self is here.  I’ve looked at myself to make changes to have a beautiful life.  For approximately three years I worked with a coach.  An intuitive spiritual coach and a wonderfully direct person.  I started keeping a journal while releasing old habits that did me no favors...
