This is probably going to piss some of you off…but everything in your life right now? YOU are choosing.
Yep, I said it.
And I get it, I’ve been there. I spent the majority of my life addicted to the struggle and even more so addicted to suffering.
My mind had conditioned itself to freak the f out anytime I felt as though didn’t deserve certain things or wasn’t “good enough” for them.
Jobs, money, relationship, you name it. When things felt “good” and almost perfect, there goes my monkey mind fucking it all up again.
I was not in love with myself, therefore I did not believe I deserved all of these great things life had to offer. I did not believe I deserved happiness.
In fact I was the furthest thing from love.
I hated myself at times.
And I CHOSE that. I chose to sit in the suffering, to allow my “poor me” mentality to take over on a daily basis and either push me into various forms of numbing my pain or checking out.
It wasn’t pretty, but looking back now, I did that to myself.
Allowing myself to go there (because I had been down that familiar road allllll too many times) was more safe than trying something new.
It wasn’t overnight but it shifted.
I started quieting my mind through consistent meditation, exploring my dark side and learning to love her not fear her, and I began to focus on doing things daily that bring me joy.
I felt allllllll the feels and it’s absolutely changed my life.
My love, you may not feel like you have control over everything in life and you’re right, you cannot control everything but you can choose how you respond.
YOU get to choose how you show up for yourself on a day to day basis and when you start choosing YOURSELF over everything else, well I can promise you, life becomes magical.
Focusing on doing the things that make YOU thrive is going to transfer to literally everything else in your life.
I got that tattoo years ago as a daily reminder that YOU create your own reality (yes those two arrows are more than just chevrons) and it continues to be such a powerful reminder.
