do you remember how amazing you are?

As I think back over the years, I often feel like I haven't changed at all, like I have been stuck. But really that isn't the case. The more I think about it, the more I realize that I'm not alone.  There are so many amazing people who forget just how amazing they are to those around them. We forget how strong we are, we forget about our accomplishments, we forget about all that we have overcome and how much we have grown. It's so hard to give ourselves credit sometimes. I know I dwell on all that is not going well in my life. I forget about all the goodness I have in my life. It just doesn't feel tangible and doesn't feel real.

In an effort to remind myself, and for you to remind yourself, how real our amazingness is, let's do the following:

1) Take out a piece of paper and a pen or pencil.
2) Write down at least one accomplishment you are proud of, such as getting a job, learning a new skill, etc.
3) Write down at least one thing you like about yourself.
4) Write down at least one thing you feel that you are good at.
5) Fold up the piece of paper and keep it in a place you can always take it out if needed, such as a wallet, purse, phone case, etc.
6) Whenever you might not be feeling so great or maybe you feel stuck, take out your piece of paper to remember just how amazing you are.

I opted to write it down on a piece of paper and in a journal, for longevity in case I lose my paper.

How was it?!

Were you surprised about what you wrote down? 

Was it easier/harder than you thought? 

How did feel during the activity? after the activity?

always under construction...

this is a truth.

a person, is always under construction.
always trying to connect to the soul.
bringing the true soul to light.

frightened of the prospect of being pushed aside, put down, or hidden in any other way...
we are limited.
we limit ourselves. 
we hide.
we disappear.

i'm not ready to disappear.
i want to connect, be seen, and simply be.
and so, i begin again.

yes, i am returning. yes, it's the same blog. it's a fresh start. some parts will be gone, some parts will continue, but i hope to share more of me and come into the light. i hope to see you there...
