is it yours or mine? I saw a vlog this week on the past is gone, and the present is now. I agree, yet please do not label my journey as the past. I am not inspired or motivated. My journey is a part of me that creates part of my strength, and my faith in me tomorrow. My reality is mine, and I have the power to include my past as part of my journey. It is not gone but apart of me.
Judging or disregarding someone’s journey as the past is disrespectful. It is essential to understand that it is a personal reality, and we should never assume we have the same truth. The impact your past gives you comes from the intention it has.
How do you view your Reality?
We should never decide the level of emotion that this journey brings along the way. It is this importance that can drive us to create a fantastic tomorrow. Importance of emotion brings along with it the ups and downs. Fear creates uncertainty, and often brings the unknown. That thing is now different. I survived my worst fear, and now I need to strive for a new normal.
My new normal includes feeling sad. It also includes gratitude. The life I have, and the choice of not having my life is never a choice, but it is a gift of all the positive my son gave me. Wishing for something different may mean I didn’t have him at all and that too would be too much to bear.
What parts of your reality do you include in your story?
Often in business, we have things happen that are also out of our control. We can make the wrong choices. It is what we do with this path that defines us. We do not say it didn’t happen; including it as part of our learning; we use this information to honour our self. Embracing the blood sweat and tears in business, empowers us to be better, allowing us to serve.
How do you choose to show up when a challenge appears in front of you? What is your goto? There is not a wrong or right answer. Do you become introverted while you understand what you can learn? Do you come out fighting to change the outcome? How about being mindful do you have a meditation process? How do you create a growth mindset to keep moving forward and not stay in your dark place? Empowering yourself includes honouring who you are. This includes what you have achieved and what you have survived; it creates your reality.
Our reality is never written the same as someone else’s. Ask your self if not you then who? If not, now then when? We can not change our past, but it does make us who we are! And who we can be? What is your business has made you who you are? What learnings that you have coped through can you use to serve?
Our reality is ours to own and heal
