I have reinvented myself several times over the course of my life.
As a teenager I was borderline delinquent. As a college student I was over the top studious and shy. As a young mother I was a mini Martha Stewart. I’ve been a corporate leader, divorced hot mess, yoga teacher, and now I am a pretty well rounded mom, wife, and coach.
Each evolution required a breakthrough. Breakthroughs occur when we fully embody our internal knowledge, beliefs, and desires.
Breakthroughs can be painful and awkward. The people who know us may not understand the change. Fear of not being accepted or being ridiculed keeps us from achieving breakthroughs. When we ignore a breakthrough we feel stuck, resentful, sad, angry.
How do we gain the courage to move through a breakthrough and become who we want to be?
It requires confidence and compassion. Confidence that you deserve to live the life you desire. And compassion when it feels awkward and imperfect.
It can also be helpful to understand how the brain will create thoughts to keep you safe and in familiar territory.
When we understand how thoughts create our reality we can work through breakthroughs and improve our lives.
“I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
~Bronnie Ware, 5 Regrets of the Dying
