Our brains want to cancel/ignore all of our awesomeness!!
Don’t let it!
This week I’ve done so much brave and bold stuff!
YOU HAVE, TOO!!
Last night as I was prepping for bed, my brain was like:
Wow. You’ve not accomplished your goals. You didn’t get 50 new clients.
(Mind you, my goal was not 50 new clients but my brain likes to be VERY dramatic.)
I said to my brain:
Hold it right there, Brainiac Maniac.
You are wrong.
I know you like to scan for what’s wrong.
I know that’s your job and all so I can stay alive
And not get a fever and die
And not get kicked out of civilization
And all that
You are completely overreacting.
I’ve done A LOT OF AWESOME STUFF!!
Then I recounted a big long list of things I did this week that I’m really proud of.
I pat myself on the back for those things.
Then pat myself on the back for calling out my brain.
Then I gave myself a hug for my awesomeness.
And gave myself a hug fir my brain to tell it it’s okay I’ve got this covered.
I know you’re worried.
Then I danced it all out so I get my awesomeness in my body and not just in my head.
I’m sure if you were watching me you’d be thinking:
What the heck is happening over there?
But dancing to your own music and awesomeness is a great way to live your life.
Pause right now
Tell yourself all your delightfully awesome ways you’ve been showing up
Sort of cool
No one noticed but you
That thing you did when you were feeling bold and brave
The project you started or finished
The mind blowing insight you had
The time you told your brain to shush and did the scary thing
The time you told your brain to zip it and didn’t listen to it tell you all the ways you aren’t enough
When you took that nap
It all counts!!
You have lots to celebrate.
I’m here to tell you…
You made it through this incredible human experience this week and you did it gloriously
Dance it out, Warrior.
DANCE. IT. OUT!!
