Good morning beautiful W3,
I woke up this morning with you so clearly on my mind and in my heart.
I had an early morning coaching session and my beautiful coaching “Partner” (I don’t love the word “student” as a session truly doesn’t work if we are not “partners” in the process and journey) was expressing shame and guilt over struggling to start their week.
All kinds of labels were being thrown about to describe her Self … lazy, ungrateful, unworthy, unsuccessful, unmotivated, uninspired, failure … it went on and on.
And as we worked through what was really going on, and shifting the energy – the mental state – the thoughts – the emotions and the ENERGY that was being transmitted as a result of this self-talk, it brought to mind you … and me.
As I have written about in previous emails, I have had my own struggles with Monday mornings.
Of course, I didn’t realize that I was not completely unique in this experience.
When we are going through most things … especially challenges … we feel alone … completely alone.
I did my work and created new rituals, habits, and patterns that have eased this challenge for me – getting to the root of my relationship with this day (sounds a little crazy doesn’t it? – and that’s another thing we can feel when we are going through these things … crazy … crazy AND alone.)
And so when I took my silent time this morning I meditated on what I wanted to write to you this morning … and that was totally and completely it …
You Are Not Alone.
The Feelings and Thoughts You Are Having Are Not Crazy.
Your Experience is Real and Valid.
You Are Loved xoxo
Just please sit with those words – soak them in – accept them and be kind, gentle, generous and loving to your SELF today.
I love you.
You Are SO Loved,
