Life in All Its Fullness

We all have a sacred path we sit in front of, sacred in the sense that it calls to our very soul. It whispers  in the darkness, twinkles around us in the light of day, makes us feel alive as we move down it or encourages us to wish for some place new when you have forgotten it and lost your way.  The path is like this huge magnet that directs our lives or makes us fight hard to move against it.

We travel the road on our own, but if we are lucky, it runs parallel to the roads of others who are on their own shiny path.  Seeing them live out their passions is contagious. We wish the same for ourselves. We are inspired.

If you found your way here today, maybe you feel the call to travel your own sacred path. I am here on my bliss passage encouraging you on. Close your eyes and let its whispers grow louder and more focused, let it tell you exactly how to get there. Let it describe the path to you. Today you will get a few details, tomorrow more. When you can see some portion of it, take one step in the direction of your dream…..and then another. Let the momentum take over and the fears fall to the wayside. Feel that bright spot? Feel that exhilaration?  Feel that zeal….that’s you on the path….that is life in all its fullness.

You’re doing it.  You are doing it!

Creativity Tribe First Month-iversary

Sometimes my head is swirling with ideas that are so intense I think it will surely spin right out of control. I can get dizzy with exhilaration when my imagination is in overdrive like that. I pull together projects in my mind, dream on art concepts, work to solve problems, or toy with how to make life even more beautiful than it already is.

The last couple of months have been a wild ride. Some days I felt high with the dreams I had for my website. Other days it was all I could do to manage the reality of walking through the fear of not know how to create what I wanted. But I persevered and here we are with a brand spanking new website that is much better than I thought I could ever pull off.  (I am still amazed.)

Creating something often takes us into the unknown. Heck, that is half the thrill! We move through each wall that shows up in front of us and do our best to manage the urge to run away screaming when something goes wrong.

Having others to walk you through a project can always help. Having the crew from Startup Training School and amazing support from the U-Design Theme I chose is a big part of me getting through the ONE K in 1 DAY challenge. But, my own willingness to fight through the fear is really how I won the race.

There is a term I like to keep in my back pocket called self-efficacy (ef-uh-kah-see). Basically it refers to a person’s thoughts or feelings about how successful they are in general.  Boosting your belief in your ability to be successful can actually help you be more successful.

Success feeds success. 

Building my website over the course of a few weeks provided a major hike to my ego. I faced an obstacle that had loomed in front of me for over a year. On the other side, I feel like a bonafied bad-ass!  I spent several days stretching my dreams to grow in proportion to my new sense of self-efficacy. That is to say, I can do more in my mind, so why not be more in reality!?

I know, I know, it is not proper to be so confident about our accomplishments. But that thinking really limits us. And I am ready to let go of limits and embrace possibility. It feels so freeing.

Your Turn

Put your successes out in front of you, even if they are small. They all count. Claim some area you were able to conquer, even if it was a thousand years ago. Hunt for something you accomplished in the last 24 hours. last week, month or year, even if no one else would say it was big enough to count, grab it and love that thing. Whatever your success (and we ALL have them) own it, nurture it, be proud of it. It can help you bring more success into your life!

Claim it here with us. Success is contagious. You look at your friend who wins the race and say, If she can do it I can!  What inspirational story will you share with the tribe today to inspire them to raise above their doubts in themselves?  What will you claim? I can’t wait to hear it! I am already so proud of you.
