As you start making changes in your life to start living life on YOUR terms, you’ll begin to notice how others are reacting to you.
This can be both scary and rewarding.
When they notice you’re radiant, they may ask what you’re doing or what’s going on with you.
Or it can be so subtle that something’s different about you, they won’t be able to pinpoint what it is and ask silly questions like “Did you get your haircut?“.
It may also stir up some uncomfortable feelings for them. Why? Who the hell knows?!
Maybe she doesn’t like how she looks in the mirror and keeps beating herself up for not sticking to her diet, so when she sees you getting the results that she’s too lazy to do herself, it’s easier for her to make some snarky remark.
Maybe he feels trapped in his miserable job, so watching you follow your dreams feels frivolous to him because he’s too scared to take a risk.
No matter what their reasons, it’s really none of your business. Truly.
We’re working through enough of our own baggage and history to create our personal growth that we don’t need to take on other people’s crap.
When you think of them too much, you’ll play small and shrink back into your old ways out of comfort.
If you really want to step into the power of who YOU are, you have to focus on you. There isn’t any shame or guilt in that.
Change can be scary. Good news…YOU are in the driver’s seat.
People will ebb and flow in and out of your personal growth journey. Some may fall by the wayside and the right people will appear when you need them most.
When you raise your personal vibration and exude a different energy, you will magnetize more people in the same place.
(The opposite is true too…commiserate and the world will commiserate with you…but I digress…)
As I’ve had to conquer fear, spark passion when I wasn’t always feeling it, and celebrate my successes on my journey I’ve learned a lot about the people around me.
Friends that I’ve known for decades have disappeared or made shitty remarks. I could have let that hold me back and stay the person they expected me to be. I chose not to.
Sure, there’s an underlying sadness of the loss. They were only meant to be a part of my journey and I am grateful for the time they were there.
People who were acquaintances have stepped up and surprised me with their cheerleading and support…becoming amazing friends. I love my time with them and they remind me why I do what I do.
And my closest friends have become my rocks through the highs and lows.
You will create your own tribe as you go down the path of personal growth.
The ol’ cliche Life is Fragile is overused for a reason. It’s pure truth.
You deserve to have whatever it is in this life that you want. No matter how fucking crazy or out of reach it feels. Time will go by whether you stay stuck or you don’t.
If you want it, get to to work. It’s waiting for you to step up.
You’ll be subliminally shouting to the Universe “This train is leaving the station, bitches…who’s on board?” and your power posse will start buying tickets.
When you take off on your journey, the world will rise up to meet you.
It’s not always easy. It feels a hell of a lot better than being someone you no longer want to be.
Take Action Now
If you want to be a better version of yourself, ask yourself these three questions…
- Who’s opinion of you (real or assumed) is holding you back?
- Why are you giving them your power?
- What do you need to say to yourself to give yourself permission to follow your heart?
Have faith that you’ll have the support you need on your journey. The Universe may drum up a team of rockstars that you never saw coming!
It’s ON, baby!
