growing up, i was inadvertently taught that wanting things was not okay.  no one ever said this to me, but i believed that if i shared what i wanted it would heighten the risk of it being taken. or it would keep what i wanted from coming to me.
.
.
i later learned that it affected me in two ways:::
1. energetically - i wasn’t focusing my attention on the joy of what i wanted or even working at what i wanted. instead i was focused on my fears which created more fears.
2. my happiness - i was afraid to allow myself to truly be happy. i was even afraid to share it with others. so instead i talked about my fears and was more comfortable with those being realized than i was getting what i wanted.

know that you deserve what you’re calling in. you don’t have to do anything to earn it, you don’t have to prove your worth - you’re already worthy.
.
be mindful of this + love yourself through it.
.
ps- the best explanation of this pattern is in the book, the gifts of imperfection by @brenebrown

  • this is not meant to take away the gratitude from those who’ve helped us. this is not meant to be the opposite of humble. but it does open us up for seeing our OWN greatness + how even though we may have been lead to the great things we’ve done for ourselves, WE made the decision, did the work, + showed up for ourselves. don’t idolize those who’ve helped you - they are messengers showing you what you’d forgotten about yourself. thank them, + be thankful you listened.

for me, the past few days have been all about remembering to listen to your truth + intuition - in all forms. easier said than done but we all could use a reminder sometimes. ♥️
.
.
love doesn’t involve putting yourself + your needs to the side. vulnerability is almost the exact opposite of putting yourself last - you’re showing up with your feelings instead of hiding them.
.
.
in what ways are you mistakenly using these two interchangeably? in what ways are you allowing others to overstep your boundaries in the false shield of vulnerability?
.
ps. vulnerability connects. vulnerability requires both parties be open + empathetic. if someone is forcing their views or thoughts or requirements on you + calling it vulnerability, this is not only isn’t vulnerability it isn’t love.

thank God for our higher selves
.
.
sometimes we go ahead with things even when we no it’s not for us. friendships, jobs, relationships...
.
.
there are times when we’re completely caught off guard by an outcome. and then there are times where we knew it would end a less than amicable way.
.
.
i don’t believe life is about not making any mistakes + always getting it right. but if there are times where pain + sorrow can be avoided, because we’ve been given the inkling that something is off, then why not go with it?
.
.
i think the simple answer is because we’re human, have emotions, get connected, + we hope we’re wrong. but in those times where we continue on, ignoring our intuition, sometimes our highest self will step in.
.
.
your highest self could be seen/felt as:::
an angel
your holt spirit 
God themselves
the Universe
another person being used to get your attention
a diversion
through song 
a feeling
.
.
whatever it is, begin to pay attention. when something is repeatedly blocked, it may not be yours to have/be apart of/befriend/remain with.
