Just let go. Let go of how you thought your life should be and embrace the one that is trying to introduce itself. – Caroline Myss
I found this quote the other day and thought it was a great one to begin Remevolution! Because how many times are we stuck in the limiting beliefs of what our life should be? We sometimes get so stuck in the should be’s that we turn away from reality or disregard possibility because we can’t or won’t look beyond our perceived limitations.
Sitting quietly often helps me to see how my choices limit my life. Saying no to invitations or not pushing out of my comfort zone kept me small, hidden and isolated when what I really wanted to be (and I am innately) is a people person who loves to laugh and socialize. What happened to me were a series of hard knocks that broke down my self-esteem and confidence. Those events broke my heart wide open and for a long time I was unable to pick up the pieces and pull myself back together.
While I lamented the events that caused the whole disruption of what I thought my life was and should have continued to be, I have found gratitude in being able to blossom again with the freedom to be me! The catalyst broke me wide open so I could find those pieces of myself that were hidden under layers of years of co-dependency, illness, hard life lessons and the boulder of belief that I was responsible to keep everyone happy no matter the cost to me.
Behold! The Remevolution arrived and the Evolution of Remembering Me unfolded before me as a journey that I knew I had to take. It wasn’t easy, but it was well-worth the soul searching, the uncovering of limiting beliefs that were hidden in my childhood domestication and the realization that this life is mine. My life is precious. It is I who needs to fall asleep on the pillow with peace in my heart. I answer to myself. What others believe about me is not my business, but instead, it is their perception of who I am.
I’ve found a tribe who understand me. We’ve grown together on this journey, each in their own way, but also as a collective reminder that there’s more to ourselves when we allow the journey of discovery to begin.
Can you put aside the limiting perception of what you life should look like for a few minutes each day? Can you ask yourself in a quiet time to speak to you about your journey? Can you open yourself to limitless possibility that may not be what you’re thinking?
The answer is Yes, You Can!
