Freedom Starts In Your Mind!

We moved a lot when I was a kid. Sometimes change was really hard…but there was always one thing I LOVED about the fresh start of a move….the freedom to reinvent myself

One move in particular…I wanted to dance💃🏼. I was always too shy to dance at school dances, but I really wanted to get out on that dance floor! So, when we moved to our next town/school, I made it a deliberate point to hit the floor as soon as the music started.

Instead of “wow, Daiquiri is actually dancing!”, I was simply Daiquiri…and dancing when the music came on was just part of the whole package that was ME.

All those years, I’d felt STUCK because I let myself believe that what other people were thinking mattered more than my desire to be free…to dance!

What’s really ironic? I NOW realize that no one was really paying me any attention anyway! They were all caught up in their OWN internal battles! What I thought was holding me back…was only real in my imagination!

Where do you want to change, but feel stuck?

Change the hair.
Change the job.
Change the clothes.
Take a class.
Call that guy.
Paint the wall.
Start the business.
Say yes.
Sell the house.
Take the trip.
Buy the shoes.
Go on the mission.

Be. Free! The chains are only in your imagination, after all!

Happy Milestone

This was a happy milestone weekend for me.

Buh Bye Stuffy Shoes!

I finally….after all these years…donated the stuffy “business casual” shoes from my corporate days. What the heck took me so long?!

Thinking about this as I work from my sunny home office this morning….hot coffee at my side, Simon and Garfunkle’s Greatest Hits playing in the background, and fuzzy socks on my toes.  This is MUCH more my speed.  I’m so thankful to have control over the way my day looks and feels!

Man…I’m happily  ruined for the “normal” ways of doing life and business….never going back!

Whole

Wholeness. What do you think of when you speak that word? Do you think “Yes, that’s me”, or do you think “Oh, I wish…”? A sense of fulfillment….wholeness….is part of what naturally comes as you step in to living your calling. I WANT that for you!

In fact, you will become so comfortable in your own skin, that others will notice. They’ll ask you what’s different….”did you change your hair?”….”have you been working out?” haha! But the ones who really know you heart and soul will just KNOW….this is something my husband said to me after I’d been working as an entrepreneur for less than a year, and he couldn’t have been more spot-on:

I wasn’t making life-changing money yet. I wasn’t yet the leader I wanted to be. But I had a clear sense of purpose and passion. I was excited to tackle each day. I had an unshakable belief that this entrepreneurial vehicle would get me where I wanted to be. Hope is a powerful thing, friends! My wholeness came from the hope and anticipation and excitement of the JOURNEY….not from having arrived (I’m still working on that).

What would bring you a sense of wholeness? What do you dream of doing? Do you have a clear path forward toward living your calling each and every day?

You deserve to be FREE to live your God-given calling, friends…..You deserve to be whole.
