Living in Full Color
Hey friends. It is time we had a talk. A real heart to heart talk. It is going to be authentic and real and I am asking you to read this with your heart.
There was a time in my life that I played small. There were years of my life that I wasn’t connected to my heart. There are many risks I never took because I was too scared. There are so many relationships I ruined because fear took over. There are endless days that I have spent judging myself. There were many days that were dark and lonely. And most of my life, I have felt like I don’t fit in… ANYWHERE.
Can you relate to any of this?
I spent many years of my life going through the motions – like watching a black and white TV with the sound off. Empty and mechanical. Trying not to feel anything. Because NOT FEELING ANYTHING, was better than what I would feel if I opened my heart. The crazy part is … I didn’t even realize I was shutting down my heart!
Life felt pretty empty.
In 2014, I was trained in Heart Centered Therapy. It rocked my world. Not just the training, but the realization that I had lived with my heart shut down for so long. I had no idea that I was living from my head. No idea that you can FAKE HAPPINESS, but never really FEEL HAPPY.
I didn’t trust my heart.
In that training, I got a glimpse of what my life would be like if I could heal my heart. I got a taste of what living with an open heart feels like. I started to open my heart and it was like opening a window in an attic that had been closed for years.
My life was borne anew.
I took the time to go through the steps of healing. I had to face the darkness in my heart but for the first time, saw the light on the other side of it. I got help healing the trauma. I did the work. And when I finally committed to living with my heart open… EVERY DAY … and I was free for the first time…
Free to live. Free to love. Free to laugh. Free to HOPE! Free to dream, to take risks, to be brave, to be bold, I was FREE TO BE ME! And for the first time in my life, I knew exactly where I belonged: I belong in my heart.
From my heart, I can live my most authentic, passionate, creative life, and it feels like I am living every day in FULL COLOR!
The world needs you dear one. It needs you to live in full color! You were given gifts, passions, dreams and desires for a reason. You have much to contribute to the beauty of this Earth. If you feel lost and can’t find yourself, start by discovering your heart. As you connect to your heart, you will find your authentic self. As you connect to your authentic self, you will find your passion and purpose in life.
It is time that we RISE UP and live from our heart. You will love your newfound freedom and I will be cheering you on every step of the way.
