Brene' Brown speaks to my soul this morning ..
Monday, February 03, 2020
♥️I think midlife is when the Universe gently places her hands upon your shoulders, pulls you close, and whispers in your ear:
I’m not screwing around.
All of this pretending and performing – these coping mechanisms that you’ve developed to protect yourself from feeling inadequate and getting hurt – has to go.
Your armour is preventing you from growing into your gifts.
I understand that you needed these protections when you were small.
I understand that you believed your armor could help you secure all of the things you needed to feel worthy of love and belonging, but you’re still searching and you’re more lost than ever.
Time is growing short.
There are unexplored adventures ahead of you.
You can’t live the rest of your life worried about what other people think.
You were born worthy of love and belonging.
Courage and daring are coursing through you.
You were made to live and love with your whole heart.
It’s time to show up and be seen.

GREAT FEB 2020 MANTRA ..
AS I ALLOWED THE WORDS TO SOAK IN .. I REALIZED THE DIFFERENT WAYS I COPED .. SETTLED .. REQUIRED LESS OF MYSELF THAN I SHOULD HAVE ..
GREAT WAY TO SELF ASSESS .. TO TRY DROP THE SWORDS .. LAY DOWN THE SHEILD .. ENOUGH PROVING TO OTHERS WHO WE ARE ..
IF THEY DONT KNOW BY NOW .. YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME ..
IF WE NEED ARMOUR TO GET THROUGH THE DAYS AND NIGHTS PERHAPS WE SHOULD JUST NOT FIGHT THESE BATTLES ANYMORE .. SURRENDER .. MOVE AWAY .. ALLOW .. CHOOSE A DIFFERENT COURSE .. A NEW PATH ..
PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT OUR SOULS ARE SAYING ..
REACH FOR A PAIR OF GOD'S GLASSES
HAPPY MONDAY DEAR FRIENDS .. LOVE YA ..
