I've woken up.
I've woken up to the fact that I've been spending half my life striving for happiness when the key to it was under my nose.
I've woken up to the fact that most people live in a fog.
I've woken up to the fact that as people we anaesthetise ourselves with overwork, shopping, drinking, drugs, food in the hope it will make us feel better, or make the week more bearable, or make us more worthy, or to 'enjoy' life more.
I've woken up to the fact that if we don't stop this and love who we are for what we are and what we have right this minute, then we'll never feel successful, enjoy our children, like the new car/shoes/house/dress for more than the moment we made the purchase.
The bottom line is this. Unless we nurture and love ourselves and know our true worth we will be continually chasing 'happiness' through instant gratification.
Acting daily to show our true selves will bring us an appreciation of ourselves. No shopping, drinking or overworking will be enough.
Don't get me wrong I love a great pair of shoes, I can work every hour god sends and I want a nice house, but if we don't enjoy who we are and love ourselves truly, these things will only make us happy for a moment and then we'll want the next thing.
Our culture encourages us to buy stuff, work ourselves into the ground to pay large mortgages, get hammered at the weekends to block out the week, eat our way to comfort. This is the norm. This is the fog. It's what we do for happiness.
Well not any more ladies.
I am on a mission, because there is another way.
Through my own coaching process and working with women like you, I have realised that the only way to true happiness, contentment in all things and accepting each day, no matter what it brings, is by BEING YOUR OWN BEST FRIEND.
It's simple. It's courageous, but it isn't easy.
We have a lifetime of references, limiting beliefs and life experiences that have us thinking negatively about ourselves, and situations that evolve in our lives. They hold us back from being content with ourselves and able to have the success we want. Success not defined by status, money and power, but by how it makes us feel about us. Once we are able to be our own best friend, then all the other things we hope and dream for will happen, because we will take action to do it knowing we are worth it. It will push the fear of being that real version of you away.
You are an amazing, unique, beautiful and powerful person but the fog and the daze you are walking around in is clouding your ability to know that and live it. You are living in fear of knowing that person and letting others know her. You know that all the clothes shopping, chocolate eating, car envy and alcohol inducing haze in the world won't make you happy in the long run. It will come from being your own best friend and loving you. Right now. Once you do this, magic will happen. You will be able to do great things. you will give to friends and family from a place of love, not duty. You will know when to say no and not feel guilty. You will know what you want in your life and how to go about getting it.
You will accomplish actions in an easy way, not a hard way.
You are your own best friend. You know what you are doing and why. If not, I will help you find out.
I have tools and strategies to support you to have an understanding of you that allows you to stop searching for external gratification to one of inner self love. It will shift your approach to having success on your terms so that you can stop striving and start thriving to achieve it.
