Getting Out Of Your Own Way

What keeps us from what we truly desire?

Ourselves

Our limiting beliefs and the stories we tell ourselves.

The stories that keep us small and safe.

It’s a hard habit to break (or is that simply another story?) It’s a journey and a process, usually not something we achieve overnight.

The first step is to learn to dream without limitations.

Dream of everything you could ever want to be, do or have.

Without limitations, ignoring excuses and defying logic. Ugh, that ever-intruding-nagging part of the brain that insists everything is too hard, expensive or scary.

Take out pen and paper, or some pencils and start writing.

Whatever comes up, write it down.

No censorship. You’re just writing, it doesn’t mean you have to quit your job tomorrow and run away to travel the world.

Have fun with it. What would you do if you could do anything at all?

Let us know in the comments below what you come up with?

What I am reading: I have set myself a goal to finish  the unfinished books scattered around my house.  Starting with The Signature of all Things. While I absolutely love Elizabeth Gilbert as a person and enjoyed the book, it isn’t one that I picture myself reading again.

What I am loving: This video made me laugh and smile.

This world is full of such talent and beauty, I want to experience it all.

Just in case you missed this, I still get teary thinking about it and have vowed to never buy a Barbie again.  A reminder that you can make a difference.

I love anything that challenges my assumptions like this video did.

What I am watching: I heard there were mixed reviews about The Second Best Marigold Hotel, but I absolutely loved every minute of it. In fact I saw it twice at the cinema and didn’t feel disappointed. Just lovely, colourful fun and a reminder to me that I love a good community.

I also watched this lovely movie with my five year old daughter as it was on a list of empowering movies for young girls.  Kit Kittredge

We’ve also been watching old episodes of She-ra. A flashback to my childhood. I always wanted to be a princess of power, with a trusty steed.

What I am learning: Apart from the usual study I do into expanding my own little property empire, I am taking part in the WILD mama journey with Avalon Darnesh. It’s an online course for getting clearer about your vision and purpose and stepping into alignment with it.

I attended a Nepalese wedding party and discovered these little beauties. While I need to be gluten free for health reasons, there will be occasions that I  break this rule; I will be eat pizza and pasta in Italy and I will experience the heavenly taste of lovingly and traditionally made Gulab Jamun  by my Nepalese neighbours.

The world is one creative and beautiful place, it is our job to discover it.

Please share in the comments below your discoveries for this week.
