I was reading a comment where someone had replied with this today and to be honest, I didn’t know whether to laugh or get my back up and go in all guns blazing.
I remember I used to be one of those that would say something like that because it seemed too hard and I sub consciously was happy staying in my own limiting bubble that I had set for myself, so I do know it, very well in fact, from both sides of the story.
Here’s the thing – Yes it most certainly is easier said than done. It can be the hardest thing you will ever go through, dropping the baggage and the limiting beliefs and whatever you list is full of. To stand strong and in your power and OWN your shit and not let it own you. But you know what, when you are ready to step up and take responsibility – in other words ‘man up’ and stop playing the victim card – that is half the battle already won. And boy oh boy is that battle worth it when you are standing on the other side of ‘not okay’ feeling all shiny and brand new. Feeling like a new person, where you can begin to know and understand the you without all that crap holding you down and back.
And here is an even bigger doozy – it is actually sooo much harder keeping yourself low, keeping yourself locked in your bubble than it is to claw your way out of it. Seriously it is, after working hard for half of my life to keep myself small, to keep myself as the panic sufferer who cannot live life hardly at all, to keep starving myself and so forth – it is a hell of a lot easier to evolve and let that shit go, than dealing with that every single day. Truth plain and simple. It felt like a full time job being that damn low all the freaking time, with no break, no sick days or holidays. I look back now and go wow, growing is so much easier than what I was doing every single day.
So while I appreciate that not everyone is ready to delve into their baggage, or evolve into something greater than where they are at, to drop the stuff that is holding them back as it totally does have to happen at the right time for each person. Otherwise that easier said than done statement is like a flashing neon light that burns the retinas and makes you decide that actually lets just stay how we are, ‘cause hey that is so much easier. Plus sometimes you need to go through what you have for your future, to help someone else, to be the person you are meant to be until the time is right to emerge into you. So don’t get down on yourself if you are still working yourself up to saying f**k this something has to give because your time will come, but maybe now your time can come a little quicker.
Because if you could see just what was waiting on the other side of that – you would be in head first, ready to dive into those pools of sludge that can make up your history. You would be first in line shouting sign me up, where do I sign!
It truly is up to you to take the reins on your story. You are the game changer, the trailblazer and the one that can change anything in your life. It is up to you whether you keep to that easier said than done statement or whether you make a paper aeroplane out of it and let it sail away, because it is only as hard as you make it. So rather than using it is easier said than done like a mantra that’ll hold you down. Change it to ‘I deal with this with ease’, ‘change comes easy to me as I start to direct my own life’, ‘I move forward with grace and ease – this is easy!’
So let today be the day that you decide this is easy, it is time because I promise you, it is oh so worth it! It is time to be that ferocious, strong lion than the frightened kitty cat hiding under the sofa.
Till next time… keep walking your spiritual path xx
