“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” - Anais Nin
When I finally took a hard-core look at my life, my money, my creativity, my vision, my Love, my work, my business, one of the first things I had to do was examine the way I was behaving in my relationships.
One of the most painful realizations for me was that if I wanted to generate more joy in my work and deeper value for my clients I couldn’t be everything to everyone. I couldn’t do it all.
I had to stop and look inside myself first.
I had to get in touch with what my desire was at the deepest level of myself in order to be able to stand firm in my power and communicate my truth with others.
This meant getting crystal clear on what healthy boundaries were in exchange with others.
This included looking at patterns of giving and receiving in every aspect of my life. Looking at the way I shared my energy, time, value, money, love and attention. I had to look at what emotions arose when I had to say “No”.
I had to realize that to set a healthy boundary for myself in a fully embodied way was for me in fact deeply triggering and monumentally confusing.
I faced the fear of losing people that I loved. I had to sever ties with relationships that weren’t growing with me. I had to say goodbye to old ways of being. I had to risk feeling judged and alone in order to invest in my Self.
It was by far one of the deepest soul searching healing journeys I’ve ever undergone. And it was scary.
With a great deal of support, through coaching and mentorship, I was able to identify and tend to my authentic needs.
By learning how to take care of myself in a new way I was able to honor what was essential and right and true for me.
This in turn enabled me to fully honor the work I wanted to do and develop the kinds of deeply connected and creative relationships I longed for.
