Pearls of Wisdom
- How much of life are you living by reacting to someone else’s rules as compared to living from your own intuition?
- Too often we hold ourselves back from doing certain things because of our internal criticisms and judgments. We get caught up with “there’s a right way” which is like an internal “stop” sign.
- Be gentle with yourself. Only go as fast as the slowest part of you feels safe to go.
- A mindset focused on growth is a result of having high healthy expectations and a strong sense of self nurturance.
- Fear becomes problematic when we deny it. The next time you’re afraid, try embracing it, breathing into it, feel it, and allow ourselves to move through it.
