Welcome to the Heal. Grow. Be Happy 3-part audio series.
If you need it, here is audio 1 again + the worksheet and my notes!
Audio 1 - Heal
My journey began about 6 years ago.
Quick birth and no connection to baby.
I felt like a robot going through the mommy motions.
I had high hopes for this second mat. leave: homecooked meals, clean house, time to shower, put on nice clothes & makeup daily, etc.
But every night, I would go to bed feeling like a failure.
Something had to change: I would either have to work harder to become the perfect mother OR drop the crazy expectations of motherhood.
So I began searching for happiness. Searching for ways to deal with the fact that I would never be social media perfect.
Long story short - I was searching for happiness in all the wrong places. I was looking outward instead of inward. The shift really happened when I picked up the book Spirit Junkie by Gabby Bernstein.
When I saw all the homework, I rolled my eyes, but quickly realized that if I wanted things to be different then I needed to do things differently.
I uncovered past traumas and dramas.
I forgave others and myself.
I healed my past so that I could BE in my present.
PS: I really enjoyed digging deep into my pile of mud...but I also believe that you don't need to dig up past traumas to be able to heal!
Shit happened! As Tony Robbins would say, if you blame your parents for the bad stuff you have to blame them for the good stuff too.
You are now in control of your life - stop giving away your power!
Forgive. Heal. & BE where your feet are!
The first step is always the hardest.
I get it. Forgiveness isn't always easy. But you know what else isn't easy: Being stuck in our victim mindset!
The second step...is to take THE FIRST STEP!
This audio is inspired by a man named Sebastien Sasseville. He's an author & public speaker sharing about many amazing accomplishments in his life, such as being the first man with Type 2 diabetes to climb Mount Everest.
When he decided to take on Mount Everest, he could have been immediately overwhelmed by the immensity of this project. What do you pack? Can I even make it to the top...or even make it all the way back down? What if I get hurt? What if...
You can see Mount Everest for what it is: Mount Everest, or you can choose to see it as a mountain that you'll climb one step at a time.
What was his first move? To sign up for climbing lessons every Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 7 - 8, at a local climbing center!
Now, my example might not be as mind-blowing as reaching the top of Mount Everest, but it's alos a great example of growth.
When I decided that something had to change, I was overwhelmed by what would be necessary to heal and be happy again.
I started seeing the light 3 years into this mom of 2 journey. There's no way I would have started my pursuit of happiness had I known that it would take me 5 years to finally be able to say I AM HAPPY. What I was able to see myself do is TAKING THE NEXT STEP.
Usually, the decision for taking the first step is when you're at a crossroad - do you keep doing what you've been doing OR are you going to lace up your shoes and change paths?
It's worth the growth.
