So my favorite blog and the one I posted last on my website is my upside down world. I have found over the years that I continued to live what I wrote in that newsletter but learned to do it at deeper and deeper levels. And in that I learned it was possible to live from my heart but it was a journey to get there.
To live from my heart I had to give up all the beliefs that I was the roles I played and the identities I owned. I wasn’t coach, mentor, mother, nature lover. I was me – nothing else.
I learned that my worth and value had nothing to do with what I produces, the successes I had or even who loved me – except myself.
I learned to stop living in my mind and start really feeling what I was feeling rather than chase it away. And when I felt the feelings without judging them they weren’t as scary or awful as I feared.
It took time and courage, perseverance and self acceptance and it was so worth it because what I discovered was the myself.
