There are times when I look at my YES YOU CAN frame on my desk and want to tell it to, “FUCK OFF”.
It’s true. I read those three words and, on the days where I feel more frumpy and deflated than fabulous and inspired, I literally want to turn that annoying little frame around, pick up a bag of chocolate almonds and watch Netflix in my comfiest most oversized pj’s for 8 hours straight.
YES. YOU. CAN.
If you have heard me speak you know that my own personal YES YOU CAN movement started when a family friend told me that now one will ever want to listen to me as a speaker (in his own words, “what would YOU have to say?”. Well at 17 I wasn’t sure what I was going to say….I just knew I felt a calling to share stories and inspiration with others.
So….fast forward many many years and sometimes I feel like that 17 year old girl all over again. Some days I don’t feel like I can. Some days I have more fear than faith. Some days I feel more shame than soul-centred success.
Perhaps you have those days too???
The biggest difference between me today and me even 5 years ago is that now I am able to ride the waves of emotion and “stories” better than in the past. I am affected by down days but not infected by them. This has been a defining change in my life experience.
It’s an ongoing process of learning, being, doing and quite frankly getting over my own shit and getting out of my own way.
I hope TODAY is a YES YOU CAN day for you. And if it is not….it’s okay to be with your pain……it’s okay to feel confused/stuck/mad/frustrated….just PLEASE remember to have more faith than fear….tomorrow is a new day of possibility and personal power.
