A gem that came out of my mouth during a recent conversation with my bestie:
"I’ve earned and continue to earn what I deserve by my consistent and repeated choice to not settle for less than that in each area of my life."
I say “earn” lightly though because we don’t actually have to earn love and prosperity and the joy of being in the flow of our life. We all deserve these things simply because we exist. But sometimes we do have to work at clearing away the limiting and toxic beliefs that prevent us from believing we deserve the love, the money, the career, the relationships, the body, and the passionate existence that we so deeply crave.
When you do the very important work of making space to receive the things that already want to deliver themselves to you (by correcting and/or dissolving the misaligned thoughts and beliefs that keep them at bay), the “payment” you receive are those exact things that you previously held back from yourself when you believed you weren’t worthy of them.
So when I experience joy, when abundance is flowing freely in my life, when I’m co-creating magic with the yummiest crush ever, when everything in my life feels just right, I know that I have “earned” this juicy experience of life because I did the necessary inner work to allow it to bloom. Meaning I did not get in my own way by interrupting the flow of my life with the resistance that misalignment brings.
And when things aren’t flowing beautifully, I know it’s my responsibility to do what’s required to get myself back on track. That could be action or inaction, shedding some tears or a fun night out, sharing on Facebook or sharing with a friend, but whatever I’m faced with, I know there is always a way to realign. Always.
So I check myself ALL the time about ALL the things. I am constantly bringing myself back to center because the nature of living is to be pulled from our core multiple times a day.
And if we’re not paying attention, we could get pulled quite far from ourselves and for far too long, so it’s worth doing at least a daily check in to see where you’re at and to make the effort to bring yourself back you who you really are in whatever way feels easiest in that moment.
Isn’t that where you most want to be anyways? In alignment with yourself and in the magic of life? Isn’t that feeling of being right on track the reason you do the things you do? To get to the point of HECK YES! What else would you be aiming for but the fullest expression of who you are and all your gifts? What could be richer than cultivating your best life by becoming your best self?
I’m after the best. The very best. And I’m always following the HECK YES feeling because that’s my cue that I’m on the right path. I let it lead me every day.
I’m the only one who can set the standard for my life and my relationships and that standard elevates each day as I grow and evolve. And it’s my pleasure and my personal responsibility to create the conditions inwardly to have the confidence in life to claim ALL the good that’s out there for me. Because there’s plenty, and not just for me but for everybody.
My joy and my pain are both my responsibility and I’m happy to be in the business of self-exploration and elevation. I’m all about creating a kickass life and existence moment by moment and day after day, and yes that means I’m also willing to get stuck in the mud along the way.
Whatever it takes to feel free, happy and aligned, is exactly what I’m willing to do.
I hope you are, too.
