Hello my beautiful soul sister,
Have you ever had one of those soul awakening conversations with someone? The kind where it leaves you feeling like you are capable of a LOT more than you realized, and your perception of what's possible for you just gets totally and completely blown open?
As a coach for women who desire to discover and live their purpose in a BIG way, I often find I am the facilitator of these conversations for my incredibly brave and driven clients…but this morning I was on the receiving end - and what transpired blew my mind.
In fact, I am still trying to wrap my head around it.
It brought to light some of my own fears and resistances I had surrounding taking myself, and my business, to the next level.
What about you, beautiful?
Is there an area of your life right now where you're feeling caught between desperately wanting to change, grow, or expand - but at the same time, nothing's happening?
Perhaps you are growing increasingly frustrated, disappointed, or even down on yourself over it.
You want something so bad, but there's some underlying fear or resistance keeping you stuck - because there's no other logical explanation for why nothing's changing.
Trust me - I get it...
Tonight as I was driving to my favourite form of nightly entertainment - watching the sunset over the horizon at my favourite beach in San Diego - this beautiful message entered my soul…
"How can you dance with life, if you're too afraid to get out onto the dance floor?"
Snap. You got me again, Universe.
That age old feeling of REALLY wanting to get out there and dance - like right now - but no one else is out on the dance floor and I don't want to make a fool of myself.
Or even worse…
There are some amazing dancers already on the dance floor - and I don't want to make a fool of myself.
Is there an area of your life, beauty - where you are just aching to get out there and DANCE? Like really rock it?! Your favourite song is playing, your body just wants to moon walk to Michael Jackson so bad…but you can't bring yourself to move forward out onto the floor?
This could be anything from staying at a job long after you fell out of love with it, or a relationship, or not investing in that program, course, workshop or coach that will support you in taking your dreams to the next level.
Here's the thing - when we wait for too long on the sidelines, sooner than we realize it the music stops playing.
And every song that goes by, is one less song we get to spend time dancing to.
We don't know when the DJ is going to call out for "the last song of the night" - or maybe he doesn't even warn us at all.
Beauty, let's not get to the end of the night, with our dance still in us.
I'd rather risk making a fool of myself, falling down, getting back up, looking silly - and having one helluva time doing it - than regret missing out on the fun entirely.
Beauty - let's dance...
See you out on the floor,
I love this song, and wanted to share some of the beautiful lyrics with you today…
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed,
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.
I hope you dance....I hope you dance
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone…
- Lee Ann Womack "I Hope You Dance"
