Ho ho ho!! We are almost at the end of the year and approaching a whole new decade. I am so grateful as it is in this decade, in 2010 that I began my journey to self love. When self hatred and pushing myself to the limits no longer served. It has not been an easy journey. When I first put my hand out for support I though I would have a few sessions with my mentor and be fixed?! Little did I know that there is no fixing only releasing and allowing the truth to shine through. I continue to be mentored and know this is a journey for life!
Back in 2010 I didn’t know myself at all. I was on the treadmill of life. A high achiever charging through life, on an emotional rollercoaster and burning through adrenaline. Thank God for my breakdowns, burnouts and hitting rock bottom. Without my failings I could have never achieved my new level of success in self love.
As I prepare for 2020 I can see how far I have come. The reflection in the mirror looks so much more kinder, graceful, joyful and loving. I have become my own best friend rather than my own worst enemy and hardest critic. My high achiever does pop in every now and then and reminds me that we’ve got this! There is a new road to achieving and it is in enjoying life, allowing support and together we can change worlds.
I recently met a very successful business man that is now a philanthropist and creating much needed change in the world. I was fascinated by the contribution he is making and secretly I have always wanted to be a philanthropist. Contribution is one of my top values and I really want to make a difference in the world. This past decade I have learnt to firstly contribute to myself. I couldn’t keep giving off an empty battery. I now feel that my battery is full and plugged into an abundant energy source.
I am ready to make more of a difference in 2020. But how do I do this? How do I become a philanthropist? I asked the successful business man, “What did you do to get where you are now?” He said, “I made lots of mistakes. Probably more mistakes than most” Wow not the answer I expected but one I definitely needed to hear.
This is music to my soul and my high achiever who is content to give up the high and just BE. There is no where to go, nothing to DO and no end to the journey. All we need to do is make lots of mistakes and enjoy the ride!!
I wish you so much Love, Joy and many mistakes in 2020!! This is your decade!! Never give up on your dreams. xoxo
