A woman came in recently for Amaranth energy healing to help with some stress and physical symptoms. Just as the healing was about to start she mentioned, "Oh, by the way..." and she told me of a devastating loss. "I thought, I should mention that." She added.
"Would you like some support for that too?" I asked. "Would that be too much to ask" she inquired. "Absolutely not. " I assured her.
I ran into this image in my facebook feed today. I looked at it and thought, "That's nice. I'll share it."
But wait. People are always telling us these lovely things that if we just do them our life will be easy and we will be happy and everything will be great. They tell us to do these things but they never tell us how.
If you are going to be a badass who lives an amazing life, there will be times when you feel completely incompetent. In fact, your ability to achieve badassedness is directly related to your ability to tolerate uncomfortable feelings like feeling lost and incompetent.
What the hell? Yep you read that right. If you are going to be amazing and have amazing life, work and relationships, you have to tolerate feeling like a complete idiot at times. This new territory comes with a learning curve. To learn new skills, you must admit that you don't know what the hell you're doing and fully experience all those feelings or just give up on being a total badass and settle for the way things have always been. Although, I think that you must be a badass because if you wanted to settle for the status quo you would not be so far out of your comfort zone to begin with.
