Over the last few posts, I’ve talked about some of the BIGGEST clues that you might not be being the true you. You know, the “aligned” you. The “authentic” you. (All of those annoyingly overused yet truly spot-on “A” words, right?)
First, I talked about the first big clue–caring too much about what others think. The next big one was believing that you really don’t know what you want (when you actually do know).
Today I’m going into what brings these two together–the biggest and arguably the most overlooked one of all.
Let’s say that you’ve decided to free yourself from worrying about what others think (or at least worrying less about it!). And let’s also say that you’ve decided to have the heart-to-heart talk with yourself and you’ve finally decided to be honest about what you want. YAY to both counts!
Still, though…..there might be one last step, one last thing holding you up. So you know what you want now, and you’re not as worried about other people’s opinions, right? Now…is there a reason why you might STILL not be going for it?
Maybe you have finally admitted what you want…..but perhaps you haven’t fully ACCEPTED it yet.
That’s right–ACCEPTED it. OWNED it. LOVED it completely. Maybe that part of things isn’t quite there yet.
What do I mean when I say “accept” yourself and what you want? I mean look at it fully and completely. Embracing it and LOVING it. Giving yourself FULL credit for what you’ve discovered about yourself, saying without hesitation “this is who I am”, and giving yourself a chance to BECOME it. Without censorship. Without worry. Without (too much) self-doubt.
THAT, my friends, is what ACCEPTANCE is all about.
You came here to earth with a mission, I have no doubt about that. But sometimes, the mission is not so easy to accept. Sometimes it seems too weird. Too scary to be honest about. It might seem off-the-wall, unconventional, or inexplicable. You might feel that it’s huge and amazing even for YOU to fully understand at times!
This is where it can get scary. And overwhelming.
Sometimes getting to this level of acceptance requires you to set aside everything you thought you knew about yourself and your life. Everything that everyone always told you that you were. Maybe it’s been off the mark all along and you are here for something that you NEVER considered before.
And yet it calls you anyway. What’s more….. once you know it, you can’t “un-know” it. (Trust me, I’ve tried!)
Now, THAT puts a whole new spin on things, doesn’t it?
The thing is, though, that while it can be pretty earth-shattering to hear that true calling, that calling is the only thing that really IS real. Sometimes when you discover it, it’s nowhere near what your life is about at the moment. Other times it’s just a step or two off from it. Or any space in between those two extremes.
But in the end, the only way to REALLY get to the you that you and God planned on is to SEE that version of you, KNOW that version of you, and ACCEPT that version of you.
And then go BE that version of you.
No big thing, right? 😉
Actually, it’s a VERY big thing. And one of the hardest things you’ll ever do. But can I tell you how worth it this all is? There’s nothing that matters more.
This is exactly what I help my clients discover. This is JUST what you can come to know when we work together.
This is what I want for you and for EVERYONE.
