Update: yes I cry. Yes I share some uncomfortable truths. And this makes A LOT of people squirm.
And for me…. I will NO longer press down uncomfortable feelings (it was killing me, killing my spirit and a root cause of my clinical depression).
I am more than ok when I am crying, or upset, or broken open. I am safe. These are all glorious signs I AM ALIVE.
I share openly for me and for others who have spent a lifetime suppressing both conscious, and especially unconsciously…. my emotions are my teachers.
I share openly because leaders and teachers and mentors are human too. We are not broken, we are on this journey too.
I heard a teacher of mine today say, “Mu goals are so big, every three days my brain tells me I’m full of it, and who do I think I am and some version of I’m not enough.”
Yep. That’s about right.
Sometimes every 3 minutes.
Especially when we lean into our edge of growth and possibility.
Over and over I will lean in to my edge and into the discomfort of growth…. because THAT actually gives me the deep inner peace and love for my self and others I desire.
We don’t need any more fuxking-perfect-life-is-al
I value resilience over perfection or “excellence.”
And so you will, from time to time, see me express strong difficult emotions.
I am leaning in front of you. It works for me…. because time and time again people say- thank you…. this helped me.
Release is divine, cathartic, and healing.
So cheers to the tears.
And thanks to the loving Universe for placing a few podcasts all in the right order today by @jessclively & Brooke Castillo @lifecoachschool – and one podcast with BOTH of them. Thank you both for being willing to be perfectly imperfect leaders.
@vanessahorn you too!!!
So even though the lady on this video is crying…… she is sooooooooo good inside….
