Be Where You Are, Then Get Moving

May 29, 2011 by

What? Be where you are? What does that mean?

It means that this whole past month I have taken off without writing has been filled with excuses. I’m too busy. I need to rest. I can’t write during the day. I have to spend time with my family at some point.

These are some of the excuses and lies I have been telling myself to feel better!

I have willingly given myself permission to do other things. That is the truth. I have willingly made choices that have affected my writing. I have willing chosen to take care of myself and learn a lesson of balance.

Strength comes with the TRUTH

Part of my addiction was beating the hell out of myself. I’m truly an expert at self defeat. I used each and every day that passed as an opportunity to tell myself that “I’m failing so many people” (you, my dear reader). “How did I expect to grow my message and help others if I’m not writing anymore? What was I thinking?” I’d lay awake in bed berating myself and, of course, coming up with some brilliant ideas and writing topics. Yet I’d always make the choice to stay in bed with the intention of maybe writing about it in the morning.

What was I missing?

I was missing all the things I was doing! I have been busting my ass this month! I have been making connections to expand my message far beyond the reaches of my blog. I have been juggling 4 jobs, kids every other week and letting go of some major fears. My hands have been pretty full! I’m learning how to balance my life and let myself be successful. As it turns out, gambling was a brilliant way to keep me small. It was perfect for punishing myself for being a failure. I literally don’t know how to be successful, balanced and organized. I am learning though. And that’s what is important!

What’s the message here?

  • Notice the truth of where you are and use it as a way to understand yourself better.
  • Figure out where your mind is playing tricks on you. Unhappiness is what’s comfortable for me. I’m changing that.
  • Give yourself credit for the things you are doing right.

I am allowing myself to feel pride for getting to know myself. It feels nice, although still a little uncomfortable usually, to see that I’m taking care of myself. I am encouraged. That, in itself, is a huge blessing in my life. My, how things have changed in a few years!

I sure do hope you’re allowing yourself to change and feel good about it too. We deserve the best in life!

P.S. As a little celebration for me getting some balance going I have lowered the price of the ebook version of Numb No More. Get your copy now!
