You are not here to live anyone else’s vision for your life. Yes, you play a part in others’ stories, but you are not here to be whom they decide you can be.
You get to figure that out all on your own, and then others get to decide if they want to continue in your story.
Likewise, no one is here to comply with your wishes or expectations.
Find That Sweet Spot
The sweet spot in life is not dependence, codependence, or independence. The final resting place is interdependence.
Interdependence is when two complete and fully authentic and internally powerful people support each other’s desires, ambitions, and authenticity because the two of you are more powerful together.
You get to fully surrender to yourself, without shame, and then allow the other person to do the same.
Let Others Voluntarily Evolve (L.O.V.E.)
You get to L.O.V.E. yourself, and through that simple act, you are empowering them to do the same for themselves.
But first, you must fully surrender to your inner truth.
This IS the Work
People and things in life will show up exactly in opposition to challenge your truth so that you can resolve internal conflict and evolve.
That is the toughest and most powerful work you are here to perform. Don’t allow ANYONE to hold you back. And people will. Sometimes “people” can be that little voice, that little person inside your head.
I had a recent interaction with the little person inside my head when I was preparing for a morning run:
You can’t outrun this work. It will be everywhere you go. Surrender to yourself. Then lead others to do the same. No guilt, no shame.
Decide who to BE, and go BE it.
