Pretty sure you know the feeling…
There’s just a ‘blah’-ness – an unsettled, anxious (but not jittery) kind of “Can’t get comfy in my own skin” kind of feeling. Love this by my Coaching Hero – Iyanla:
That’s me… There’s so many changes going on in my life, which are great – don’t get me wrong – but it’s new. New is scary. New is putting myself out there in a way I never have. New is being out on display, showing my scars, wrinkles, stretchmarks, lumps and bumps in the hopes that some woman – some mom – somewhere – realizes that she. is. enough.
Here comes the storm:
I’m planning a big announcement in the next week or so, and every survival pattern inside of me is screaming at me to STOP! Turn Around! Go back to where it’s “safe”. But safe is stuck. And stuck isn’t going to help anyone. There is an electric energy that I can feel all the way into my bones – I know I’m on the right path – I have to keep moving forward.
And what comes after the storm?
That fresh smell, a clearness to the air that you didn’t realize was so yucky. Maybe a rainbow. And inevitably, the grass grows a few inches. Then you have to cut it. What I’m trying to say is that my storm is coming – it’s just on the horizon. So I’ll hunker down, watch it come, listen to the thunder and watch the rain fall in sheets… Then I’ll enjoy the freshness, and the new work that comes with it.
