“Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine perspiration.” Thomas Edison
I attended a women’s empowerment workshop yesterday entitled “She Believed She Could, So She Did”. After beginning a major transition in my life last year, I bought a bracelet with that very same inscription on it to remind me to believe my beautiful vision I have of my life into reality. I wear it to empower myself. I wore when I gave in my resignation. I wore it on my last day of a nearly 20 year career with the Federal Government. I wore it the first day of my certification classes for coaching with IPEC. I wore it when I met some of my biggest influencers. I wore it as I was getting physical therapy for my back so that I could walk El Camino. I wore it the whole way, walking and completing the 77 miles journey in Northern Spain from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela. And I still wear it everyday to remind me what I am capable of when I believe in myself and my purpose.
But before one can get empowered by the words SHE BELIEVED SHE COULD, SO SHE DID, the most important thing that I am realizing over and over again is that there needs to be acceptance as to where you are in your life right now, at this moment. And if you are not in such a great space, understand why, stop blaming others, and take responsibility for your life.
No more WHY ME?, just a whole lot of sending loving energies to that broken part of you that needs healing. Temper tantrum aside, when you shift your vibration to one of gratitude for the this journey, however challenging, then the release from restriction can begin. No one is holding me back from what I am here to do. It has already been divined mine by my Creator. Giving way to this belief, ushers in uplifting change. Walls will appear as course correction or learning experiences on your way to follow your bliss. Mentors will appear to help assist you. But we all have to do the work. After we are touched by inspiration, that which breathes life into our soul, gotta get intentional and claim your desires, actions and your path and let the past go.
I am closer to where I want to be now than I was a year ago when I put that bracelet on my wrist for the first time. While I have made mistakes, I get no benefit from blaming others for those I have made that have wounded my human ego. I pay attention to my intuition and do the next right thing taking the wisdom hard earned along with me. And because I love to dance, the Cha-Cha speaks to me. Start dancing to the music that is your life and get in sync with the beat. Cha-Cha… Cha-cha-cha. When you feel the pushback of the Cha-Cha, know the music within will help you move to your balance again, using that energy to answer back with a Cha-cha-cha putting one foot in front of the other owning your dance all the way home, as you shimmy and shine! Whatever happens next, I own it and am moving on!
