Getting your mojo back….
Why does this have to be so hard? It takes so much time to build it up, but it seconds, minutes, even days it can be completely gone.
And not only that, it effects so many different aspects of our lives. Wherever you’re at in your journey and whatever your journey might be – staying present and being mindful is key.
I can’t believe we only have two months left in 2017! I’m so blown away by how fast time goes by. This year has definitely been a challenge for me. On every level… Mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
With that being said this year has also taught me a lot. I was diagnosed with cancer December 2016. Since then I’ve had two major abdominal surgeries, have battled depression, major anxiety, and let’s not forget about addiction.
As I continue to live my journey, I’m grateful for everything that I’ve learned over the years. My spiritual toolbox has become my best friend. How can I be more mindful? How can I live more present? How can I let go of expectations? How can I see the glass half full instead of half empty? Instead of asking – Why me? I’ve learned to ask – What are we going to do about it?
My cancer will be a new normal for me. It is never going away and is monitored ever three months with blood work and scans. It causes high blood pressure, effects my hormonal system, lymphatic system, and my endocrine system.
With all of this that I had to process this year – I lost my mojo – BIG TIME!
As an entrepreneur you are the face of your business obviously.
But, how can you show up authentically to the world if you’re just not feeling it?
This is what I had to let go of. All the things I love about my business, had to be put to the side.
My blogs, my podcast, my live videos, etc. I didn’t mentally or physically have the energy to do it.
I never want to force the things I love. I want to feel my way through them. Especially when it comes to helping and healing others. I’ve had to take this year and heal myself. Because of this journey – My yoga practice changed, I couldn’t workout the way I love to, and my body changed. It’s not even about gaining weight. That part I’m ok with. It’s that my body just didn’t feel like my body. This has been very strange to me.
As I sit here at my computer typing all of this I’m having this – WTF! moment and also a huge moment of clarity. I think things happen for a reason. I believe that God doesn’t give us anything we can’t handle. We are all fighters. We are all survivors. What we have to move through and let go of is all the bullshit reasons we can’t do something. This is the lesson. This is the test.
Are you up for the challenge? This year I wasn’t. I stepped back fully and excepted everything for what it was. BUT, and that’s a big BUT – Now I’m back! I’m feeling excited, energized, and ready to kick some ass!
Getting our mojo back is a process. You have to figure out why you lost it in the first place. Do you have a legit reason or are you making bullshit excuses.
If it’s legit – Where are at right now in your journey? Do you still need time to heal? Are you asking for support?
If it’s bullshit excuses then you just have to ask yourself Why? When you ask yourself why, don’t judge it. This is all part of the process. It’s the work we have to do to peel back the layers so we can grow. It might be painful, it will probably suck a little, but it will be all good in the end.
Take time feel and never force. You are loved. You are supported. You are amazing.
Let’s get ready to kick 2018 in the ass!
Cheers my sweet souls.
