I talk to women everyday, friends, colleagues, mothers on the sidelines of our kids games and I am moved by the amazing gifts they have. From solutions to big world and community issues, to what is called for today to raise the warriors of tomorrow. Innovative, creativity ideas that if unleashed to the world we would be “building beautiful“ in ways that have never been defined or imagined before.
So what's holding us back ?
We are still selling ourselves short when it comes to bringing our ideas to life and feeling confident that what we are passionate about is worth creating. It's that calling within that is our truest self. The part of you that knows what you are meant to bring to the world and knows what brings you joy. Collectively women are breaking down external barriers to empowerment but individually we are still struggling to understand our own power.
We all have an inner critic that tells us self-limiting beliefs and we unknowingly listen to and think it’s our source of truth. We also have an intuitive wiser self. The part of us that is loyal to our hopes and dreams. Slowing down and beginning to listen to the chatter going on inside will help you to shift more attention to your inner wisdom and empower you to let your light shine out into the world.
How do you create this shift? My meditation on Finding you Inner Critic and Inner Mentor will guide you to begin this journey. Also check out Tara Mohr’s book Playing Big: Practical Wisdom for Women Who Want to Speak up, Create, and Lead.
What does “building beautiful” look like to you? What brings you purpose and enthusiasm? There is only one you and you are here for a reason.
