When you look into the mirror what do you see. In drab, for many of us, we see the person the world expects us to be, while under that image is something very different and filled with the most amazing feelings and love for ourselves. Which leads me to a conclusion I discovered recently. In accepting me and talking about what I am increases the ability to embrace all those good feelings while I am expressing myself as a women and a feminine being in the world.
As most of us have done, if not all of us, putting that person aside has led to guilt, shame, wonderment of how we got here and confusion on what to about it. Short times of acceptance, long periods of denial, and hopes of changing something and despair of having to let the feminine you go forever are regular occurrences. Acceptance in the world seems impossible when it comes to family, friends, work, and even you yourself at times. The awareness and honesty of being you feels like falling off a cliff. However, this the first step in taking that women, girl, special person and loving and caring being in to your heart and treating her like as though you cannot live without her. As I write these words, I feel so empowered to express myself even more than I can today.
Capturing these feelings and living them out in the ways your circumstances allow you to do is what you should do and let yourself feel good about it. Setting a goal to increase your time as you is a good thing. There are only degrees of success in this.
I am not an expert on much and have always said the only thing you can be an expert on is your own experiences. I have spent over 40 years coaching people, giving them advice on how to handle life’s events and drawing on my education, research, experiences and living with the girl in me. So I say at this point in my life:
The image you have of yourself is the real you. By imagining yourself you open a window into what is possible in your life and what is to come. Your life is a manifestation of your dreams; it is an art.
Become the dream and create a masterpiece.
This you have the power to do. Look inside and know the choices you have for they will come to you if you look for them. Love the place you are in and take care of those you love.
The tears will turn into new roses and the images turn into butterflies.
