Let’s talk about forging your very own unique path.
We grow up and we’re given freedom – within a container of expectations of what others think we need to be doing and how we need to be living. We’re always trying to fit in, to be accepted. So we listen to people when they say to do things this way or that way. We listen when they tell us, ‘this is how you become successful,’ this is how you become happy,’ ‘this is what you need to do,’ – ‘Follow these five steps and you’ll start making six figures in six months.’ ‘This is what you need to do and you’ll attract the perfect soul mate.’
There are all of these steps and processes and systems and courses. And I am not saying that any of it is irrelevant because it is and there’s a plethora of amazing information out there and why reinvent the wheel right?!
What I am saying though is that we need to listen to and trust ourself.
Whatever you’re doing or wherever you’re going – whether you’re in business for yourself or you are working in a 9 to 5 and trying to create the life of your dreams, you have all the keys, all the pieces, all the answers, all the building blocks inside of you to build your own unique path and way though this life. In fact, taking steps and creating that beautiful path of yours is all you need to do. Just be you and let your uniqueness shine.
By all means look for people who inspire you. Listen and learn and read and take it all, immerse yourself in their uniqueness. And once you’ve done that, I invite you to drop it, drop it all. Imagine yourself leaving it all in big bags outside of your front door. I want you to imagine yourself going inside your home and just start to let whatever you’ve taken in settle within you. Then, only take in the parts or the tips or the processes that are completely aligned with you and feel good. That fit for you and your beautiful path.
Let me tell you gorgeous, just because somebody says, “Here are the five steps to be happy, healthy and successful,” Does not mean the five steps are right for you, two might be and the other three you can just leave for somebody else because they’re not your steps, they’re not right for your artwork called life.
I’m really passionate about this subject. I’ve been working in the online world now for a number of years now and i have experienced personally this lack of trust in myself, my light and divinity to be my guide with my soul mission and purpose of growing my tribe, my entire business and doing the work that lights me up like nothing else can.
This is transferred over all area’s of life for people – not just business. We try to follow the processes and the systems, the things that we’re told we need to do to be successful, to be accepted and part of the fold, so much so that we end up losing our own voice and our own truth through that. We end up working and living in a way that isn’t fully aligned with who we really are.
All you need to do beautiful is show up as you, live as you.
Take the bits and the pieces, carve little bits out, form your own beautiful path that adapts to where you are right now. Make life work for you not the other way around. Your path will change and evolve over time – that’s why it’s a path.
One of the bonuses of living as you and forging your own path forward is that you will attract your tribe, the people that get you and love you just as you are. And the ones who don’t dig your path – that’s okay too, you don’t need to explain or justify it to anyone; It doesn’t have to feel good for anybody else, it’s not their path. It’s yours. It just has to feel good for you.
It can all be so simple when we want it when we let it be. It becomes SO complicated when we’re trying to live up to other people’s expectations, when we give all of our power to those that we admire and really respect. Again, by all means let them inspire you and mentor and grow, and then it’s all about coming back to yourself and knowing that you do know and you do have everything you’ll need and you can live that way that lights you up. It’s okay if it’s softer. It’s okay if it’s slower. It’s okay if its gentler. None of that matters, it just matters that it feels right for you. That’s all you need to do.
This is your life lady, this is the biggest and most beautiful creation you will ever have. If your life was being made into a movie, what would you want it to look like, feel like, sound like – what is the story your life will tell?
Hint: You can change that story at any given moment and notch up the colour to crystal vibrancy at any moment.
Yours in all the good vibes,
