I've been rather out of action for the last 2 and a half years due to becoming a Mumma again, and as most of you will know... it wasn't an easy ride for me (massive understatement!)
But I got to a point where I was like....
It's time for me to get my booty back into doing what I love. It's time for me to face the world again, take some risks, put myself out there.
The thing is, I had the remnants of 2 years of shitty thinking to contend with.
I started going running as a way to pump up my endorphins and move some energy... and when I was completing my run a few weeks ago (and feeling rather pumped up and pleased with myself, I must say) the barrage of self-doubt, pessimistic, failure thoughts started attacking me left, right and centre...
You know the ones... The ones that tell you it will never work, there's no point, who are you to be so successful, you're going to fail, you can't do it.
But this time, my response was totally new. This new energy rose up inside of me that hadn't been there before... This new energy took one look at those repetitive negative thoughts and said, "Nup! Not on my watch buddy."
This new energy took a stand for me, the real me, the vulnerable, authentic me. Just like a body guard would protect his client, this new energy punched those negative thoughts in the face!
It felt good. Really good.
I gave this new energy a name: FIERCE.
E xpression of
I have been using this new-found FIERCE to stand up for me ever since then, and now I am on the brink of launching an exciting new project. I've been re-formatting and redesigning my Learn to Channel course and turning it into an online, live coaching format where I'll be able to reach people all over the world.
Have you found your FIERCE?
