You Can’t Skip The Stuff In The Middle

I know that the stuff in the middle is the hardest part. When you are working hard to be ignorant to your own truth you often numb yourself from your reality. #human Once you take the step into the journey of feeling, acknowledging and healing, shit gets real. 😔It’s not glamorous and it doesn’t feel good. The natural inclination is to recede or find a way around it. 🤦‍♀️ Acknowledging the truth of it can be helpful - not as a way to commiserate but as a way to put truth to the process. #iseeyou Going through the muck is the way to get to the other side.

The real reason I love Eliud Kipchoge for running a marathon in under 2 hours

Who would you be walking through life with holding your hand and what would your ultimate chosen work be?  Imagine how your life would look in great detail ...

It saddened me to know that it was ME I was talking to.

If you could hear the words I would say in the stillness of my mind you’d be saddened to know that it was ME I was talking to. The words I chose to say to myself would often be harsh, biting, shaming and belittling. I’d be quick to label and slow to forgive and the result was that my self esteem took hit after hit. This went on for years - until somewhere in my mid-20’s I got a glimpse of the relationship I had created with myself. It was precarious at best. I couldn’t rely on myself and there was evidence all over my life of how I consistently let myself down. Sure >> on the outside I might’ve appeared confident but my truth...
