Reaching inside, deep inside

Sometimes you are so scared to reach deep down inside and you force yourself to stop, just as your about to enter total greatness. Afraid of what you might say or do? Afraid of the changes that might occur if you actually take the risk?

But… You’ve had this epiphany and you feel like your soul is finally ALIVE again!  You just want to continue to keep that feeling, and now you have to find a way to protect it from leaving you again. It’s the gift you’ve been waiting for! It can’t leave, because was destined for you!

Your mind starts to go bat crazy!

You create this internal battle with non other than yourself, and if that’s not enough you start questioning almost everything around you. You feel dazed and confused, unsure and uncertain wishing you just had the courage to throw it all down on the concrete, breaking it into a million pieces.

It took so long for you to realize you were in this uncomfortable place because you made it so cozy, you made yourself believe you only deserved to feel a certain way. Maybe you had s_ _ _  that happened to you in your childhood, maybe you were just feeling cowardly, or you are just a loyal person. But each time you knew it was wrong you chiseled off another piece of you just to make your piece fit the puzzle.  Now that is crazy! 

I’d be lying to say I never experienced this type of situation. I have been through some really tough times and some how I have always managed to always come out a surviver. I remember as a kid my mom saying to me “Sha remember always do the right thing“. I thought by me always following that quote I was deserving of all good.  Then you realize not everyone was raised the way you are, and that’s when I started questioning (why?)

Ups and Downs

Remember when you were a kid and would go on the seesaw in the park? I realized, life is sort of like that. Time after time you gently tip from side-to-side (up and down).  Having complete balance is almost impossible to achieve. Imagine, we tip from side-to-side depending on the priorities that require the most attention. Then someone stops and get’s off. Maybe this was their time to move on in the playground? But, one thing I know for sure is that the person who is left on the see-saw is usually left looking to find someone else to play with in the park.

Your Soul Is Unstoppable

When your soul is ALIVE, you are unstoppable! Your assertiveness, ambition and your smile hold’s the secret. So now you seek balance which in any moment, hour, or on a given day isn’t something you have ever failed at. We were each born with an individual soul, and if we had the handbook we probably wouldn’t spend so much time on nonsense. There may be lessons that need to be learned. And you can’t get unstuck and be unstoppable until you do. Your actions reflect your beliefs and self respect. It is what you do that demonstrates your feelings until eventually you are so confident, down to the bottom of your soul.

Maybe you experienced the sense of passion, excitement, and exhilaration with one person but then life happens. Circumstances, kids, family and businesses get thrown into the pot. Day to day you rush to do your daily tasks so that you can add that little green check to your list, and feel that sense of accomplishment.

But Is It Enough?

Do you feel like you are just in the motions without feeling your emotions? We have all been their at some point and said I’m ready to give up! Then all of sudden that little birdie whispers in your ear and gives you 10 reasons why you should stay put. At the same time things around you start to happen that are pulling you closer towards the exit door and just then…You realize, you are being tested.

You Stop! 

And I mean you STOP! You shut down completely! You think it’s one last time, maybe something amazing was about to happen , maybe you were in the midst of a personal crisis or possibly you just felt bad for the other person. You need to make sure that when you are ready to turn to the next page that you fully understand the chapters leading up to it.

You Go!

Nothing makes you feel more alive then when your blood is pumping! You are finally ready to make your mark, and take your stand! The ability to let things go is huge! When you let things go, you are rebuilding your self confidence and relinquishing yourself from external dependency. Sometimes you even need to place thing’s in another space for you to move forward.


Take care of your soul & always reach for the stars
