There are different ways of losing yourself. One way is to always surrender to the needs of other people and let them bully you into being what they want you to be, at the expense of what you want. This is excruciating.
Another way is to surrender to your own highest good, your higher self, your best. Too often we are scared to surrender to our own best life because we’re scared of being bullied into something we don’t want – scared of being bullied by ourselves the same way we are pushed by others, away from pleasure, toward pain.
And so we spend our lives hiding in fear from the very life that would be most full of passion, joy and connection.
If that’s where you’re at, don’t beat yourself up for it. It’s kind of where I’m at right now. I know that I’m not ready for a huge, life-altering change right now. But I’m ready to make little changes and do little things to get me a step closer to my best life.
So I’m writing this and posting it because writing is part of my best life.
Done. [pat on the back]
