Our potential as human beings is our wings. When we are standing in it, when we are making decisions that are true to our calling, when we are benefiting the world with our skills, we feel free! We feel excited about our lives and we look forward to what the future holds! Our perspective is one of giving. Its others and outward focused. It doesn't matter if we haven't mastered our craft or how awkward we look learning. We press on and fail forward because even our imperfect attempts are serving and improving the world!
Most of us are lost when it comes to our purpose. We don't know why we are here or what we are supposed to be doing. Most of us are fuzzy about our own skills if we feel like we have any at all. Our eyes are inward or self focused. Our thoughts are on who we appear to others or what others think of us. We compare ourselves to made up celebrities and photo shopped models. We have lost sight of our worth and we try to gain it in others approval. We pursue vocations for the monetary rewards or fall into our work through NOT making decisions. The weight of our potential hangs heavy on our backs. We feel weighed down, worthless, and defeated. We spend little time doing the things that we were created to do and instead lament the skills we weren't given. We are spending so much of our time to things that don't fill our soul and we feel like we never have time to do things we love.
From this emotional place, we struggle. We self medicate. We distract ourselves with entertainment in an attempt to find relief from the weight we carry upon our backs.
As a coach, I see so many women trying to struggling to see the root of their unhappiness. They are steeped in shame over their appearance which they blame on a lack of self control which they view as a weakness. In reality their unhappiness stems from not living in their purpose, not valuing their own calling, comparing themselves to others to which they turn to food for momentary comfort.
Often when they join my group, their entire focus is on changing habits to lose weight or achieve an unattainable beauty standard. The habit was born out of a need for self care because of deep pain. The pain will not disappear on its own. The act of cutting out harmful vices like sugar and processed food makes the pain sharper at first, but much like how a splinter is located, applying pressure and feeling a deeper pain as you get closer, so can you find the source of your pain and work towards its resolution. You may stumble your way through and find yourself head first in a bag of cookies more often than not in the beginning and that's ok! It's hard. it's work. You're not a failure. You are a soul looking for where it belongs.
The reason I coach isn't because I love transforming bodies, it's because I love guiding people to freedom! I love being the voice of grace and understanding and comfort. I love speaking the truth and giving other women courage to take that weight that rests upon their shoulders and turn it into the freedom of wings!
We are gearing up for our January group and I want to invite you to join us! If you have tried again and again to practice self care and end up back where you started, I encourage you to renew your mind with us! If our perspective is off than we will never end up where we want to go, we will carry that weight upon our back forever. It's painful because we aren't supposed to be carrying it!
