I am done with this warped sense of freedom and success, where success is determined by how busy we are. We are in a space where there is so much noise, mindless chatter where nobody really listens and we pretend that we are listening and hearing, but comparisons and judgments are rife.
But being very busy, going to work every day and racing around like crazy women, apparently is a sign of success.
If that’s what success looks like then I don’t want a bar of it.
Surely I am not alone? I am done, done trying to fit in with others, trying to conform to masses, whom dare I say are also doing their best to try and conform. How have we ended up here? With no real sense of who we are, we spend our time running around doing everything for everyone and we don’t get a chance to stop and ask ourselves, am I happy? Am I living my best life?
You see this infinite collective throughout our lives that make you feel like you don’t belong. Circles that have no open links to acceptance, the feeling like you just never seem to fit in. Anywhere.
The rebel within loves the fact that this is the way I live my life, but the reality is some days I long to fit in. It is no coincidence that the very people who grew up feeling like they were freaks and didn’t belong to any circle are the very same freaks who are changing the world. Our vision is much bigger than the problem. We use our words to heal, connect and embrace other people and their inner freak.
The Sunday night blues, because you just don’t want to go back to work on Monday, the dread and that feeling in the pit of your stomach that makes you want to vomit. Why? Is that what success feels like? There is a level choice where we get to ask ourselves what we really want, because if this is all there is then we are screwed.
Come away with me for a second. Imagine what the world looks like when we love and embrace who we are, our uniqueness and all those quirky things that makes us awesome, where we are all responsible for our actions and we understand that our external world is a reflection of how we are feeling within. There are no limits or boundaries to constrict us. We have a sense of belonging because we know exactly who we are and where we’re going, instead of feeling like “Who am I to change the world? What makes me capable of doing such a thing?”.
Once we remove all the stories that surround, I am all that remains and that is all you ever need.
It’s the freedom lifestyle that I am living. It’s not goal orientated where I am constantly trying to over achieve and be surrounded by external things that give me some sense of freedom. When I have a shower, I want to feel the warmth on my skin. When I cuddle my girls I want to feel it with every inch of my soul. When I am with my man I want to feel my entire body, to feel all the love I have and have to give. I want to feel frigging alive, like crazy alive, like I am here and I am on a frigging mission and I am going to change the world. I am fucking Oprah. I am abundant in every way.
When the overwhelm, fear and self doubt creep into my existence, then I am frozen, paralysed and unable to think straight and find sense in anything I am doing. It gets us all, we all have those days. For a long time I thought it was a part of life and it couldn’t be avoided.
Confusion is just the old butting up against the new and that’s okay. What emerges is beautiful. But what if there was a way that we could seamlessly integrate, shift, release and understand who we are, what’s really inside of us and let go of all feelings of doubt, insignificance and fear so we can rise above, embrace love and cherish our inner freak and get back to changing the world. I did it and now I really want to show you how you can too. It is a simple, clear and concise way that isn’t weird or freaky, but completely life changing and totally awesome.
For the first time in my life I am so frigging happy. Happy with who I am, where I am and where I am going. I feel alive and I have love in my heart. This process made me a better version of myself, a better mother, a better partner, a better business owner and just wholeheartedly I am feeling unstoppable.
Choose freedom and fly that freak flag.
