Don't you hate feeling uncomfortable? Ugg, so do I!
This weeks video blog, vlog, is all about this very topic.
I want you to realize something, when you have a
part of attaining said dream/plan, will most likely involve feelings you do not want to feel, you will find all the ways and reasons why you should not achieve it.
It is just what our brain does. We are wired that way.
But listen, all that you want in life, is on the other side of feeling uncomfortable.
The secret lies, in feeling uncomfortable, and doing "it" anyway.
That is it.
Super simple, right? No, but the good news is, you are also wired to do hard things.
And the funny part is, the feeling you are putting off, is most likely the feeling you are feeling ANYWAY!!!
So, get busy. You got this!
One of the most important secrets to life is learning how to manage your mind, your thoughts.
We tend to think whatever thoughts run through our brains are facts. And then we get used to thinking a certain way and we get stuck in our own heads.
That is not true. Your thoughts are not facts.You can actually learn to manage your mind and greatly reduce all the side effects of worry, anxiety, overwhelm, etc
It takes practice.
When you find yourself faced with a faith crisis, you can use this tool to help you through the difficult process of making such a huge life change.
Get those thoughts managed and you are on the right path.
Have a listen and tell me what you think. If nothing else it will get you thinking.
(see what I did there?) ;) Video Below!
Awww, the journey of a Faith Crisis is an interesting one, isn't it?
I started my YouTube channel in 2012. It was a place to share my story and document some of my feelings and memories along the way.
It has been a place to help those of you who are coming up the ranks behind me.
I felt so alone and scared, back in 2006, when my Faith Crisis (awakening) began, that I wanted to have a space for you to come and see a real face attached to the journey.
Maybe you can see yourself in some of the stories I tell?
We are a lot a like, you and me. We are pioneers in a way.
Leaving one's faith takes time and courage.
I am hear to listen, walk with you, and guide you through the process.
I just added these words to the home page of my site...
I am Amy and I am a Faith Crisis Life Coach. I lived through my own personal faith crisis and I am living proof that there is life on the other side. I know you feel alone and scared, but it will not last forever. Let your awakening (what I like to call it now) be the most beautiful thing you have ever been through. Sound impossible? Oh my dear, it is possible.
I really do believe that this process you find yourself in the middle of is actually beautiful. (albeit so damn hard)
You will look back one day and realize that what you are going through is actually a good thing. It is the beginning of you looking outside the box. It is the beginning of you thinking for yourself.
No matter what side of the coin you land on, you may stay, you may go, but you will have a completely different perspective. You can never look at religion the same way again, and that ultimately is a good thing.
It hurts right now, but it does get better.
Stick around. Things are really getting good here.
You are not alone,
Okay my dear....
What do you have your eyes on? Seriously, what are you looking at?
Remember the last time you had a crush on someone, graduated from HS or college, landed your first job, gave birth to your baby, planned a fun vacation? Pick something. Something in your life when you felt all those fun feelings.
Did you know you can capture those thoughts and feelings everyday?
It always comes down to what you are thinking about.
Have you ever seen someone who walks around like they hold the secret to the universe? I have and I have even felt what that feels like too. (A story for another day.) That feeling can be fleeting, but it is possible to capture the flow of those thoughts and live your life from them.
When I start to doubt the feeling that I hold the secret of the universe in my hands, I sit back and go to the place, in my mind that gave me those thoughts and feelings. Then I hold on tight and work and life from that place.
It feels so much better to live life through that lens then the opposite lens that makes me feel sad and depressed.
You can do this too. Really, you can.
What lights you up? Follow that. Do it now. Life is way too shore to sit around waiting for someday.
You, my dear, are worth it.
I have some catching up to do and so The Life Show episodes will be out of order for a sec. #lifehappens
Get caught up with me! Life has been a roller coaster the past 4-5 months. You can hear all about it here...
Lots of love to you!
Oh my goodness! I thought it was me. It is not me. It is FB. lol
No, seriously, I thought my business was over. Sales have been down. I got scared.
I also thought I had to do business a certain way. Maybe I do. Maybe I don't. But I am tired of the game of trying to figure it all out.
So, from this day going forward, I am going to do what feels intrinsically right for me.
I create because I have to create. Not because I have to sell. If you love my Soul Candy pieces...great! If you want to join me on an essential oil journey...great! If you want to have me as your life coach...great!
Either way, I will be here doing what I love, because I have to. I want to. It is me.
Have a listen to this impromptu FB LIVE video, from today. I share from a very genuine and honest place. Plus I talk about Elizabeth Gilbert, so there is that.
Things have been changing over on FB, as they always have and always will. But I will still be doing my thing and I hope you find ways to follow along.
Please sign up for my weekly bursts of love! That way we can always stay in touch. Even if you don't open all my emails! that is okay!!! Pick and choose what works for you. I am okay with it all.
After watching this video, tell me what spoke to you. I really do want to hear your thoughts.
Are you tired of trying to do things perfectly, or just right? Stop that. Be you in all of your glorious imperfectness. Keep doing what you love, just because you love it, without worrying about what other people think.
We are all in this together.
Much love and cheers to living life on your terms.
Life is precious. We all do not know how long we have on this planet. Really, one day at a time.
This episode aired just after the shootings in Las Vegas.
It was hard to hop on live and talk about life as usual when for so many people life would never be the same again.
These are my thoughts from that day.
My love and healing heart to all of those effected by such a terrible terrible happening.
You are loved.
I believe life is about becoming your most authentic self. Do you? We are constantly learning and growing and finding our own personal truth.
Have a listen and then share with me your thoughts.
How are you coming along your journey to becoming you?
Hey, do you ever get down on yourself? Get in a funk that is hard to get out of?
Me too. I totally do this and once I start going down the rabbit hole of sadness, it can be hard to get out of it.
Here, I have a challenge for you. Watch this video and then try it. Then, let me know if it works for you? It is all about changing those voices in your head, right?
Sending you so much love on your journey!
