We have noticed that when stating an opinion on their photo/s that doesn't 'comply with #KOP valid facts' it's simply deleted or the person/biz is blocked therefore making this post ☝🏽a little hypercritical don't you think? #befair#supporteachother
I'll paint the picture, let me set the scene
You know, the future's in the hands of you and me
So let's all get together, we can all be free
Spread love and understanding, positivity #letsbeweirdtogether
I absolutely love receiving new beads from #mahimacreations in Vrindavan 💕 If you've bought one of my handmade malas, you've already supported the widows of Vrindavan, which is where all my sandalwood and rudraksha beads come from. These sandalwood beads smell absolutely divine. I feel a creative mala making session coming on! 😊
~ #truth there have been so many times throughout my journey that I haven't felt supported. Where my goals and the things I want to accomplish have been mocked or belittled.
It sucks to say the least. And don't get me wrong, I have a huge support system. Larger than I've ever had before.
But it sucks when those you expect to support you kind of aren't there.
And then I start to think: maybe it isn't me. Maybe it's them. Maybe they just haven't found their journey and they're lost too. Lost in their own dissatisfaction. Their own dark cloud.
And what a dark cloud that is! It fucking sucks! I remember wanting so much to be better, be healthier, to be the girl on the bikini or with the abs. And with all that jealousy, I could support them. I couldn't be there for them, because I wasn't there for myself.
Everyone has a battle. Most hide it. I know I did. But I see you and I know it keeps you up at night. And it's ok, but these battles you don't have to fight alone.
I am by no means perfect at recognizing this. It's hard to put yourself in someone's shoes. 👟
So here is my #thursdaythoughts : the next time you pass someone, whether in good spirits or bad, remember they are on a journey too. They are fighting the good fight 🌺
This week I encountered a situation that challenged my mindset. 🔆
After meeting with a group of truly inspiring female entrepreneurs at a business networking event, I was prevented from joining the group at the last minute on the basis that they deemed my type of business as too similar to another person's in the group.
The experience did not sit well with me on a number of levels. 🔆As I reflected on it, I became acutely aware that the experience had triggered an old wound of mine -one of not feeling valued for who I was & what I had to offer. 🔆I knew that to walk my talk, I needed to make a conscious choice about my mindset & the story my mind and ego wanted to create about what had just happened. 🔆In making this choice I knew that I first had to allow the feelings of disappointment, disbelief, rejection and anger to rise and wash over me. 🔆I knew I needed to explore these feelings fully in order to move through them and out the other side. 🔆
I sat with these feelings & embraced my shadow and capacity for thoughts that were far from love & light!🔆
As I continued to process the emotions over a couple of days, I started to move out of "poor me" mentality and started to look for the value in the experience -how could I learn & grow from this? What could I take from this experience? 🔆
I discovered that it had helped me to achieve greater clarity about the type of business networking group I wanted to belong to 🔆
For me it is to be part of a group that believes in abundance & inclusivity i.e. that there is enough room (& work) for everyone, that recognises that we all have unique skills, experiences, personalities & talents such that no two businesses could ever be the same & one that supports collaboration, rather than competition. 🔆
The experience was also a timely reminder to myself to ramp up my self love /self-worth activities & affirmations. 🔆
As a mindset & soul coach, I want to share this experience as an example that none of us are immune to experiences that can trigger old ways of thinking and feeling. 🔆
However, the capacity to shift back into our own power & to see the value in all experiences-good & bad, is always within our reach.
