June quite frankly went by incredibly too fast. And for whatever reason, many of my old demons and thought patterns surfaced. Honestly, I stumbled. I compared myself to others, I compared to this “expectation” of where I should be, and I let those win. I don’t know if I really even fought back.
This month, with a new focus, new drive, I’m showing up for myself. When those moments pop up, I won’t vacate, but I’ll feel them out, sit with them, and work on becoming a stronger version of myself. I’ll listen to and honor the requests my body, my mind, and my spirit want.
There are two phrases that come up frequently in my life. The first: Dedicate yourself to the effort. Change, growth, evolution – they don’t just happen. When we learn something new, we get better with time and practice. That’s the path we’re all (I’m) on; it’s not a quick fix overnight, I’ve made tremendous progress, but I still have areas to improve.
The other phrase: There is a time and a place for everything. This is my time. This is my place.
Because my future starts now.
