Late night… feeling a bit stressed… no make-up and fatigue setting in… What do I do?
Apparently, I choose to take an opportunity to indulge in a little self-doubt and self-judgment. Arghhh!
Why do we do this to ourselves? While watching a beautiful webinar (and doing my taxes) from Gabby Bernstein on vision and doing the work you love, I couldn’t help myself but to compare where I am with where she is.
So polished, sleek, sophisticated, yet warm and down to earth, Gabby has all the right words to say, an audience of millions and a track record of success to back her up. Here I am, feeling like maybe I’m not good enough.
Yet it’s in these moments, these ego-based, ridiculous moments, when we can be mindful of what is happening inside our own heads. That we can acknowledge that our path is our path for a reason. That I wasn’t a spiritual teacher 10 years ago because I had my own important growth and work to do. And now, 4 months into this beautiful heart-based project, The Truth About Living, I am beginning to serve in a new way… align with my purpose in a new way… inspire others in a new way.
My vision, my dreams, my goals are all right there for me. But acknowledging where I am and my own worth is so valid.
Do you ever do this? Think someone else is better, smarter, healthier, more successful, better looking, more educated, more fill-in-the-blank than you?
I think it’s normal, natural. I’ve even heard Gabby herself say she’s fallen into this trap. We forget our own magnificence sometimes.
Look at others you admire and respect as a light being shown onto your life. Rather than using it as an excuse to feel bad about yourself or where you are in life right now. You are where you are supposed to be. And if you want more, if you want it to change, it will happen for you. Keep seeking. Keep growing. Keep expanding. Find mentors you love. Get inspired. Embrace self-love and be aware of the perfect creation of God that you truly are.
Here’s the video version of this little late-night saga 😉
