Don't Fight It🌟
Gotta tell ya, this whole deeper relationship with God thing is taking me on an emotional journey. 🎢
It is fabulously terrifying in the best of ways. Not only am I more aware of the stresses and dangers of life I am equally aware, if not more so, of their counterparts...joy, trust, grace....✝️ I'm tired of running from all the feels and being blissfully ignorant in it. I'm so thankful my mind has been opened up to such a freedom and that my heart has accepted. 🌱
I'm not afraid of CHANGE. That word doesn't scare me and in fact I think it's absolutely necessary. I am not satisfied with who I am. I am not content with "this is me". I want more, He deserves more.
You don't have to believe in God to be a good person. But if you do, stop using it as an excuse to be conveniently washed by the blood and start using it as THE motivation to give this life everything you've got...and that starts with us. ♥️ #notgoodenough #bebetter #lovely #trusttheprocess #yoga #you #mom #wife #woman #sister
Welcome to the final in a series of posts where I take aim at the obvious ills of society that I have in my sights. Expect righteous anger, for there is much to be angry about...
Okay. I do get it. People like the serious stuff about mental health, but struggle with the serious stuff about society. This most recent 9-post society series of mine was a fizzer...
But I've got one more go at getting my message through about our societies and how to change them for the better...
You may not like the answer, but it is indeed a simple one. Even more so, it is a powerful and self-empowering answer which is ALL about personal responsibility...
Let me break it down to absolute basics...
1. Society is just a group of people deciding to stick together and follow a set of rules and values.
2. Society is just a group of people.
3. Society is people.
4. You are people.
5. You are your society.
If you have a small group of people, and all of them are assholes who treat each other meanly, and greedily gather as much wealth as they can to themselves at the expense of the other assholes, well, your little society isn't going to be very nice, is it?
And that is the whole point I've been trying to make all along... if you start with a bunch of assholes, it doesn't matter what laws and rules you have. You can change the structure of your society in a dozen ways before breakfast, and still you will have a bunch of assholes...
No matter how you try to change society, none of the changes will work until the people who make up that society decide to change themselves...
And this is the uncomfortable truth we must all face... you can't expect your government, your religion, your society, to change everything around you just so that you can remain the same unchanging you...
That's not how change works...
You and I and every other human being needs to be the change that we are all passively sitting back and waiting for someone else to be... it's on each of us... personal responsibility to become more aware of ourselves and those around us, and taking ownership of the consequences of our actions without trying to hide or shift our blame...

This made me smile. Then I thought about it. And it made me sad. .
My mother had an outrageous relationship with food. And eating disorder. Can you guess what that does to a kid! .
My brother and I grew up knowing nothing else. Bottom line...whatever your weight or shape, it wasn’t good enough. .
My father obsessively worried about ‘what the neighbors thought.’ Yep, you guessed it. Me and my bro couldn’t get it right. Too flashy or too trashy. .
Little girls should be seen and not heard.
O, but how these messages shape how we show up in the world. And I pause to contemplate how the constant barrage of marketing messages of ‘you’re not good enough’ and the ubiquitous social media ‘you offend me’ is impacting our young ones. .
I’ve been through my battles, and now as I’m about to turn 62, I’m pretty much okay with me. I’m not skinny, but I’m comfortable in my body. I speak up and tell my truth. .
Hey, let’s face it, sometimes I’m flashy and sometimes I’m downright trashy. .
My heart is good. I care about and for people. I show up and do my best. And I hold the space for others to be real. To show up in integrity. To allow their authenticity to shine. .
If living a life without fear of judgement, from self or others, appeals to you, then contact me for a complimentary consultation. Send me a message and together we’ll make 2019 absolutely fabulous. .
