Hey, we all wobble all over the place with our emotional states and energy levels and levels of optimism and general helpfulness to those around us... Don't beat yourself up about it.
Some days we feel invincible, strong, positive - our best version of ourselves... Only to plummet the next day into frustration and despair, or anxiety and confusion, or total exhaustion :/ And we wonder, what the hell happened?
You know what I mean??
You know what's really important to remember here?
On the days when you are feeling like crap, having a meltdown, being fearful, getting anxious, getting frustrated, feeling negative or hopeless or flat...
Don't make an identity for yourself around these wobbles off your centre.
Don't tell yourself you are no good because today you can't seem to find the motivation, don't tell yourself that you are generally a failure because today, you just don't have the energy. Don't tell yourself that you are really a wreck and no-good because you're having an anxious moment, or processing a fearful thought.
Don't define yourself by your wobbles.
Who you really are is that YOU that you sense when you are feeling super connected to yourself and others, when you are in appreciation of yourself and others, when your heart is open and you're feeling generous, when your doing what you love with passion, when you are feeling free and abundant, when you are plugged into your Source and are breathing deep of that peace and contentment.
This is YOU. The real you. The wobbles are just wobbles. They are transient clouds passing through an endlessly blue sky. They are an opportunity to love yourself more, to become more patient. And because they are NOT the real YOU, eventually they pass, they fade... (do you notice that?!) But YOU always remain.
What can help you to lessen the wobbles, or at least, not take them so personally?
Make it a discipline everyday to tune-in to, and embody the real YOU. A meditation, a walk, a run, yoga, writing affirmations, dancing, singing - whatever does it for you - DO IT.
This will ensure that the real YOU is louder and brighter and stronger and more influential in your life, and the wobbles become smaller, fuzzier, shorter, less significant.
