So I’m a part of a group called “Soul School” with Alexi Panos and we’ve been doing a lot of work. Like, A LOT of work. Personal development, looking within, sitting with the discomforts of life and celebrating the magic moments that are in every waking moment we’re alive.
Check it out here if you’re interested in or are so led to digging deep within and discovering who you are and how to become the best version of yourself possible. 😉
Well, anyway. We were in a Facebook Live and the following 2 questions were asked:
1. “What have I been trying to get to and my evolution?”
2. “What has been my destination?”
We were challenged to write down our answers. And then tear them up. To be done with the ridiculousness once and for all, knowing that it’s not real. And that we are just where we need to be. That we are enough.
And, well… As I’m a little embarrassed to tell you what my exact answers were, I’m going to tell you anyway. (Because damnit! I shall not bow down in the face of fear!)
It is honestly very eye-opening for me to put words to what my ambitions have been over the past years of personal development, so here goes…
What is it that I have been trying so hard to attain?
I have literally been trying to become the best version of myself so that I can attain perfection in the sense that I never make a single mistake and that I am seen as perfect and nice and good and the best person all the time…
As well as, once achieving this, I’ve believed that I may be able to make ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD! (Because I’m such a good person…)
And, haha!!! How incredibly ridiculous does this sound?! I’m literally rolling on the floor. It’s really hilarious to me.
And it is really good for me to have perspective on this too! And to start retraining and rewiring my brain to believe what is actually true…
Which is this:
I am human. And imperfection IS perfection. The messiness is beautiful.
I will make money when I’m meant to. Not one second before, not one second after.
And I will provide value for others, which will in turn, provide me with some form of value as well! (Whether it be in the form of housing, money, food, etc.)
Personal growth and development is (officially starting now!) just one strategy to becoming the best version of myself possible in order to help others in the best way possible.
To come back to the truth of who I really am, which is love.
So the question I pose to you is this: What have YOU been seeking, chasing after, trying to attain? What will you write out and rip to shreds?
I challenge you to sit with this for a moment. Write it out.
..And then shred the SHIT out of it!
Just do it! Because you can.
Thank you for reading!
I love you.
