As part of the daily reminders for this challenge, the agenda is posted below, however, I want to take some time now to share some of my observations with the intent of assisting you on this journey of 'becoming more'. I strongly believe that sharing from a space of growth is necessary to not only further solidify growth within ourselves but to also spark a light in others. Sharing, for me, has become quite therapeutic, it hasn't always been this way, it took going through some outlandish moments to break the desire for silence. However, I have come to the realization that keeping quiet during those dimmed moments actually keep us in that space for much longer than necessary.
"You can't heal what you don't reveal."
In addition to that awareness, when I view from a different perspective - I realize that I may be having a bad day, but someone else may be suffering a bad week... that shift in thinking outside of my own circumstances assisted me in becoming more aware that sharing through my process can potentially help someone through theirs. There are more positive outcomes in this journey than negative, however, you must also be aware and prepared for the adversity that comes along with it.
The more that you make strides to become better... the more people may try to keep you where you currently are. People may know you for who you once were or who you currently are and may not be so encouraging of a change. For some, change is intimidating, it makes them feel uncomfortable and therefore they struggle to accept it, even for themselves. Others may see how much potential you have even before you see it within yourself and that too can make them intimidated so they will try to deter you or make you feel uncomfortable due to their own insecurities. Being aware of these possibilities should give you the confidence you need in yourself to continue to move forward in being your authentic self, despite what obstacles come. You should also be aware that there are many people that will not only embrace your desire to evolve but will do what they can to help you to reach your goals. There are a lot of people who genuinely want to support you and to see you do well because they believe in you and in your purpose. There are people that believe in your ability to positively impact others through your journey. People whose desire is to add value to your life, protect your energy, and expect nothing in return. Be intentional about who you surround yourself with and the energy that you exchange. Understand that in order for you to be of help to anyone others, you must first be of help to yourself - your true self.
