Our entire life experience shapes who we are.
There is nothing that we experienced which are exclusively bad or exclusively good. All of our experiences made us who we are today.
It is the values that we attach to our experiences that shape our world view, and more importantly, our view of ourselves.
The problem comes when we learned self-protective behaviours before puberty - those are deeply ingrained believes and behaviours that are hidden in our unconscious and are usually of the kind that questions our worthiness and our belonging.
We basically end up looking at life through our own seven year old eyes.
And that is an extremely disempowered way to live life!
Here is a shortcut to making life better by getting into balance - by finding all the TOO areas in your own life:
It sounds like this:
I have too much work...
I am too tired...
I have too much to do...
I am too scared...
I am too loud...
I am too caring...
I am too insignificant...
We are the only ones who can find our volume knob and tune down our TOO behaviours. No one else can do it!
Baby steps, one station at a time!
Let me know which one you are working on...
I am taming my "I take on TOO much" instincts by reminding myself of what I am missing out on - reading a good book, a motorbike ride in the midday heat (ode to Smokey!), lunch with a friend, funny cat videos on You Tube, exploring new places... Self care 101 today, Sweetheart!
So this is where I tell you more about my journey...
Maybe there is something in my story you can use to make your own life better. I really do hope that my random ramblings are of use to someone out there!
