... And lack thereof.
Hello Lovelies! Here we are again.
Yesterday was new and exciting and I pushed myself to the edge of my comfort zone. But you know what? There was no vulnerability hangover today! Huzzah!
What's a vulnerability hangover? you ask.
Sometimes, when we try something new, or if we feel the need to prove ourselves, we move from a place of fear and scarcity. This can cause us to overshare. To give pieces of ourselves out in bulk in hopes of connecting.
I know I have done that in the past. (A lot). This usually ends in a scummy feeling and a sensitive heartache of second guessing.
But there's hope!
Instead of moving from a place of fear, instead try moving from a place of empowerment. Who you know yourself to be - unapologetically.
It isn't for the other person to judge your heart.
It is for you to share with those worthy of your being.
Yesterday's post was a new endeavor for me.
I love talking. I love meeting people. But what I really love is being understood.
Writing leaves tone out of the equation, so it can be easily misinterpreted.
In this journey, please know that I am only going to create from a place of inspiration and whole-hearted alignment. Even if it feels uncomfortable.
Heck, especially if it feels uncomfortable. I am going to make my discomfort a cup of tea and have a chat with it. Where is it sitting in my body? What is it trying to tell me. And primarily, most importantly, to thank it for trying to keep me safe.
When we speak from a place of empowerment and kindness, there is no vulnerability hangover. There is no danger of oversharing because we are working towards a common goal with our heart and being wise about how we share that. You don't owe anyone anything. But you are worth your own kindness.
Take note of how you are talking to your discomfort today - what is it trying to tell you? Leave a comment below and let us know how you are increasing your kindness! Let's inspire others to treat themselves worthily!
Here's to a kind and awesome week!
Very much love,
Tea-loving awesomeness. Challenging perfectionism.
