Explorations and Reflections

on awakening the true self

There's No "Becoming" Our Best

My dog usually lays against me and rests while I meditate. Sometimes he works his head under my arms for snuggles.

Every single time it's a gift. He's not interrupting my meditation - he's the reason for my meditation. A clear, inspired, and loving experience of life is why I do any of my inner work.

Because our inner work is not about Becoming our Best.

Our inner work is about Being our Best.

🔥 When the storms of overwhelm sweep in...

🔥 When the quivers of anxiety vibrate our nerves...

🔥 When the fires of frustration fog our vision...

🔥 When the burn of shame heats our chest...

🔥 When the magma of anger begins to erupt...

There's nothing - no circumstance, no emotion, and no thought - that can forcefully keep us from moving in the right direction. ALL of it is happening for us, not to us.

What if there were nothing to fix, change, or improve about ourselves, others, or the world? What if there was only awakening to our full capacity to thrive in any moment?

It's a single-item to-do list:

✅ Access our inherent capacity to thrive no matter the circumstances.

When we learn to access our inherent capacity to thrive no matter the circumstances, we can then do meaningful work that inspires us in all areas of our life. This applies in our marriage, in our parenting, in our friendships, in our work, in our alone-time, and everywhere else.

This is what it means to Be our Best.

Here's the catch, though: most of us have never learned to access our inherent capacity to thrive.

Most of us have spent or will have spent at least a decade and a half of our lives in school to learn. But we've never learned this. What if we had learned it? What might have been different? What if the adults in our lives modeled for us and others what it is to leave life free from the seeming constraints of our circumstances?

Life coaching is one powerful access to moving beyond our self-imposed limitations. It gets us in touch with what we really want. It gives us access to 100% responsibility and freedom to live our best life. It compassionately shows us our blindspots. It guides us to experience our own insights. It gives us customized practices.

If you'd like another set of eyes, another mind, and another heart there to support you in being your best no matter the circumstances, consider working with me or another life coach you trust.

Thanks so much for reading. 🙏❤️

P.S. As a transformational coach, I help people move beyond their self-imposed limitations to be their best and feel amazing. If you’re interested in finding out how I can support you, reach out and let’s talk. 💌

There’s No Doo-Doo on the Dock

It’s much easier to sit still on the dock than to go digging through an old garage. But sometimes we can't sail unless we do.
