Two keys to finding ease and grace this fall
I had a powerful call with the women in my Mama on a Mission Mastermind circle last week and I'm going to let you in on what we did. :)
We celebrated summer. We invited ourselves to feel deep gratitude for what is. We invited ourselves to be real about, with self-compassion, the challenges we face. From that space we got clear about two things so we can properly plan out our lives this coming fall:
1. We got clear about how we most desire to feel this fall.
Do you most desire to feel joy? Ease? Grace? Flow? Do you most desire to feel creative? Enlivened? Courageous?
Be awake to how you most desire to feel and let that desire be your sage guide as you plan out your fall. Check in and see if your commitments align with how you desire to feel or not... And correct course as needed!
2. We got clear about how we most desire to be this fall.
What is the presence and energy you most desire to bring to the people you encounter in your daily life -- your family, friends, colleagues, community?
Do you desire to bring calm, grounded energy? Do you desire to bring loving and compassionate energy? Do you desire to bring playful and joyful energy to others?
If you're not clear on these two things all of your external goals will fall short, burn you out, and cost you your health and happiness. And when your health and happiness are lost, your goals get lost in the long run, too.
So be visionary. Dream big. Think about how you want to love and lead your family, career, and community... And let the "how" and the "when" of all of your deadlines and goals be guided by how you want to feel and who you want to be.
If you want ease and grace, give yourself the space and time to feel and be what's most aligned for you.
When you do this, your goals and vision manifest in magical and unexpected ways. Simply put, they manifest in a way that is most right and true for you (which may look different than you're thinking in this moment).
Life is not a race, Laura. Life is a soul-stirring adventure.
Your feelings and your being are at the center of it all. They are the anchors that bring you back home to yourself. And they are the navigational tools that allow you to create a life of joy, purpose, impact, and grace.
If you're a mama and you're on a mission to live a life of purpose and impact, know that your joy and your grace are the driving forces behind your good work in the world.
I'd love to hear from you! Please comment below and let me know how you want to feel and be this fall. I'm here to support you in that vision!
With warmth & light,
