If you have ever thought, “It doesn’t have to be this way.” “People don’t have to act this way.” “I know someplace there is kindness, caring, and acceptance of the most different of people,” then you might be willing to embrace a future where all of that is possible.
I used to want to know exactly where the next step would land. I used the road map of the past to guide me through life. It was good enough for Mom and Dad or Grandpa and Grandma, or the Jones’s. Was it really? I was a dreamer and I always wanted more! I was glad for the childhood I had and the character it built within me. Along with that came some pretty clear wishes to be different. I just new something else was available and I was choosing that!
Through my adult life I noticed that if I didn’t align and agree with people’s points of view, I was out. How many times did I diminish me, hide me, to mimic what I though someone else wanted me to look or be like?! It left me feeling less and honestly, lost. Do you ever feel that way? Maybe trying to fit into all of those reference points- road maps of the past simply didn’t work for me. Playing people’s stupid games with gaslighting, lies, and judgements really pushed my buttons! Then, one day, I moved. I left the place I had spent my whole life up to that point.
I had a clean slate. I was free to create me based on what was true for me! It wasn’t something to fear... it was something to celebrate!! I explored whatever lit me up! I met new people. I got to know me- and left behind the not-me I had been defined as. How liberating not to care what other people thought of my choices! I kept diving deeper into the unknown with its clean slate and created an ever greater, more extraordinary life than I ever dreamed possible. The people of my past that thought I was too weird have disconnected from me. I actually find that to be a relief. It is hard to maintain a lie. I was lying about who I was and that I needed their friendship. To let that go with no point of view has been ease, joy and glory! To embrace more of who I am, the magic, unique, potent being I truly am, has changed my world. I have no idea what lies ahead in the unknown. What I do know is that I am in total allowance for it to show up any way it wants. I do not wish for it to look like the past. I keep asking, “What else is possible?” and “How much better does it get?” I know that the Universe will always create greater if I am wiling to receive it!
If you want things to be different, you have to actually choose to be different in the way you create yourself and your life. Recreating Past just keeps you in the hamster wheel of creating and living all of the things that have been keeping you stuck and mediocre. Perhaps you are happy with that. If you want more, something different for the world, you might enjoy embracing the blank slate. What would you create if anything was possible? It is just a choice.
Creating with the unknown and allowing the real you to emerge is easy. Maintaining the lies, judgements, stratifications and reference points that keep you stuck as the lowest possible denominator of mediocrity- that is hard work!
Set yourself free and embrace the unknown with the enthusiasm of a child discovering the world for the first time!
