At first glance, I immediately thought that I really didn't show up more than normal. I was basically doing the same things: working at Gore and working at CPL Sedona. I was still showing up every Sunday, teaching class, attending the Wednesday night concerts, going to my monthly game night, and playing Bingo once a month as well. So, on the surface, things were the same. And I can say I was a bit disappointed.
But when I reflected longer, I realized I was showing up deeper, showing up more authentically, and showing up more for myself. I facilitated a correspondence course for an inmate in Alabama, helping him work through issues of anger, frustration, self-acceptance, and shame. This helped me work through my own feelings. I hired a coach who is gifted as seeing past my wall and fear and is a guide on my heroine's journey. I am showing up for myself, moving deeper into myself, and into my power. And it is scary.
What has your year looked like so far? What did you decide to create or experience this year? How have you moved forward with that? What limiting ideas are you willing to release? What do you say "enough" to? There's still time. How can you show up and create something new?
Dragon-slaying, troll dancing, and weed whacking can be a piece of cake once you take that first step.
