You're already there
I had a chat online with a friend and we constantly encourage each other whenever we speak or dm. And I said that I would see him at the top and he said that we were already there. It floored me. Imagine having this and I gasp for air before saying this - ideal image of what getting there looked like. Lets face it, I had a list. Most women that I know, also have one or atleast a solid idea of what goals they would like to accomplish. I thought that until I accomplished those "goals" that I really didn't get there or even close. I thought if I was harder on myself, I was being better to myself in the long run. Don't ask me where that came from, but it's my truth of the lie that I believed. Back to his affirmation or truth, or both. It awakened me, it almost made me allow myself to leap forward and dive right into getting my stuff done. I'm on social media. Check. Blogging, Check. I wrote an amazing children's book. Check, check - but seriously and most importantly, I am there. I am fully invested in sharing my experiences with the world to help someone else. I'm fully invested in writing children's books that help kids learn early that they can believe in themselves, pursue their dreams, get knocked down and get back up and trust their intuition for the entire journey. I am proud of my accomplishments in the now. Check. So where are you right now or want to be? Have you heard a lot of nos or think that it's too late or you're not close enough? Maybe you are there and don't even know it. Maybe, being there is not about external gain but inwardly. Trust the process. I know that I am, even when it feels like I should give in. I believe the more time that you take, to see the good in you, the growth and how far that you've truly come, you will see that YOU've been there all along.
