Here comes another moment of feeling the weight on her shoulders get heavier. She just agreed to do one more thing she didn't really want to do. Her role strain increased one more fold. This happens more often than not.
Out of obligation. Out of guilt. Out of worrying what people will think. Out of a place that held no concern for herself, or for her true feelings. It is instead centered upon a desire for external acceptance or gratification.
She wasn't being honest with herself.
She wasn't acknowledging the alarm in her mind, the sick feeling in her stomach, or the emotional strain. There was even a sensation in her throat. It was that uncomfortable "you're pushing yourself" again sensation. "You're letting yourself be pulled into something you don't really want." It was that familiar siren that just got ignored...over...and over...and over again.
One of my greatest lessons over the past year- love myself enough to not allow other people’s opinions of me determine how I feel about myself. I’ve lost several friends during this healing journey, and others have said things to and about me that crushed my heart. I prayed for guidance on this a few days ago as it was surfacing and finally opening to heal.
I was told in my meditation to read Galatians. This is what I read. “Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.” Galatians 1:10
Thank you, Jesus, for the message and very pointed guidance. I choose to serve God. I’m doing so, I am free from the need for external approval. It still hurts and that will heal, but I feel a profound shift in my being around this old wound.

I’m guilty of overthinking just about everything, but the best and easiest decisions have come when I’ve made decisions by feeling them out instead of thinking them out.
The decision to marry my husband wasn’t even really a decision at all. It required no thought. I knew it was right.
For years I debated about children, planned, delayed, planned some more, until I let all the thinking go and went for it.
Quitting jobs? You bet there was thinking about quitting, but planning and thinking never would have led me to do it. It is feeling that led me to quit.
Starting my business? No thought. Just a feeling like I should do it and then going for it.
I bet when you look at the decisions you’ve made in your life, they have been led by a feeling. By a desire. By an urge. Not by thinking and analyzing and weighing every little detail. That only causes confusion.
What decisions are you happy to have made based on feeling over logic?

State: Make up your emotions
Ingredients • LIGHT HAIR:
• 4 tbsp Arrowroot or cornstarch
• 10 drops essential oils (pick your faves, some great options: geranium, ylang ylang, whisper, balance) • DARK HAIR:
• 2 tbsp cocoa powder
• 2 tbsp arrowroot or corn starch
• 10 drops essential oils (I love Marjoram and Lavender)
Put the drops of essential oil into the arrowroot or cornstarch and mix with a spoon. Store the mix in a small jar or old powder container, I like to use a small tin that I picked up from Hobby Lobby.
Apply with an old make-up brush to the roots or oily parts of your hair. Applying with the brush is optional, but it removes the need to comb through as much and is better for styled hair. If you don’t use the brush, comb the powder through your hair and style as usual.
Dark Hair: What to do: Mix the cocoa powder, arrowroot/cornstarch and essential oils. Store in a small jar or old powder container and apply with the make-up brush. You will add more cocoa powder to the arrowroot/cornstarch until it matches your color.
The Women of Wakanda were 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍!!!! And as I sat there watching them act in full and unapologetic conviction of their calling, I had to ask myself whether I create #content that way 🤔 Whether I run my #onlinebusiness that way 🤔
The truth is that to create with conviction, to run a business with conviction, to live with conviction, we have to start with listening to ourselves, listening to what we're burning to say and what keeps coming up over and over again in our hearts.
If your to-do list goes on forever and you haven't been able to make that space to listen to yourself, I'm inviting you to me event Lemme Listen to Maself.

I'm tired of being careful, gentle, trying to keep the water warm
Let me under your skin
Uh-oh, there it goes, I said too much, it overflowed
Why do I always spill?

Music is a universal language, a powerful healer, a magical channel of exploration through which so many different emotions can be expressed... and I feel them all!!!
And what I love the most is that it doesn’t need to be explained... only experienced 🖤
Right now I’m listening to this song, so there ya go babe 💋
Sometimes we should just let our heart speak for us, instead of being scared of the consequences.
Passion is wild, raw and it burns... let it spill!
I’m sure Kory @pgkcb13 and Jen @jlmergler would like to play?
have you ever been driving in your car on the highway when you see a big hill approaching in the distance? it almost makes me wonder if my car can even handle that steep angle. but then a funny thing happens as the hill approaches. it almost seems to flatten out. once you're on it, it doesn't feel nearly as steep as it looked from a distance. i think life is kind of like this. our challenges seem so huge and looming when we imagine them as ideas. but when we are actually knee deep in the middle of them, we usually get to the work of doing what needs to be done and we unearth courage and strength and gentleness and patience we didn't even know we possessed. sometimes i think the ideas i have about my challenges are much scarier than the challenges themselves.
today's deep thought inspired by @sms25 . and a long road trip.
