Through the last few weeks, this has been my motto and mostly what has helped me get through so much! Every time fear takes over, or anxieties, or emotional overload – as soon as I remember, I say this in my mind – sometimes even out loud, just so that I can clearly hear myself say it.
As I mentioned in my previous posts, I think it’s important for me to really be honest as to where I am coming from and not pretending that I have everything under control. Because honestly, I haven’t. My life is a journey, with many roads that I am exploring everyday. The main road at the moment(other than my family) being my business Angel Spice.
I have learnt so much in the last year about myself and really embracing the journey of better health for me and my family via Hungry For Inspiration. I started that page on Facebook because I wanted to connect with other like minded people and be inspired by others that are on the same journey as I am , as well as have more knowledge than I do – that I can share. I wanted to be inspired and to share that inspiration with others at the same time. I realised how much of a passion that I have for my health and it was made quite obvious by just how fast that page grew over just a few months! I kept questioning though, how come it was that this page was growing so fast – whilst my Angel spice page is still to this day only very slowly steadily growing. It seemed that no matter what I did, my energies just seemed to be so much more for Hungry For Inspiration. There were a few weeks where I didn’t go on any of the pages, had a break from it all as I was needing time to reflect and face some of my “demons” if you will.
It was when I got back on that it really dawned on me the energy that I was spreading through Hungry For Inspiration was full of passion and love – and the reason may not necessarily be that I need to follow this as my dream but that looking after myself and my family in this way, really inspires me. Through that inspiration, I was able to reconnect with the passion for Angel spice . Even though I did wonder at the time that maybe all that I am doing is a complete waste of my time, sitting on the couch/study desk, surfing the internet and facebooking …but in reality, these have all been my baby steps! I love it when realisations and insights come as I am writing!!! Goes to show how important writing and releasing really is.
So what is the real reason behind Angel spice page not doing as well? Just one word…such a small word…but so massive when we allow our imagination to take it and run with it…and I know that I am not the only one in the world who allows this word to take over at one time or another. Especially when entering new ventures, stepping in unknown territory. Have you guessed the word? Well here it is…the dreaded word:
Fear of so many things which I may go into on a future post. But what I wanted to mostly to share in this post, is that fear doesn’t have to win. We have a choice. It’s ok to take the time to reflect and regroup so that you can come out fighting, but don’t allow it to crush you! The best way for me has been, to stop everything, go back to basics and come back when you feel that fire burning deep inside of you again. When the nudges become more like pushes, step in and TRUST!
Admitting to yourself when you don’t have the answer and recognising that ego is at work and not your higher self. That, in itself, is an achievement! Stepping into your truth! Old lessons may still present themselves, but remember to be the observer for yourself, see how far you’ve come – recognise your growth, however big or small!
Thank you for allowing me to share here. Remembering that this is all in my experience of NOW…please only take what resonates with you.
