Don Miguel Ruiz wrote, “Awareness is always the first step because if you are not aware there is nothing you can change. If you are not aware that your mind is full of wounds and emotional poison, you cannot begin to clean and heal the wounds and you will continue to suffer.” P.99 The Four Agreements. Awareness of the person that you really are and the path to recover that person is key to achieving that joy and happiness you are looking for.
There is a saying amongst many that they are excited about becoming an old person because they can say whatever they want and people will let them. Did it ever cross your mind that you don’t have to wait to be who you are? Who told you that you had to wait? People who are old have finally come to the conclusion that there isn’t much time left. All of those limiting beliefs melt away and they begin to hold each day as a precious gift. Why do old people and children get along so well? Children are not afraid to be who they are. Old people are also no longer afraid. What have they got to lose?
I will tell you that being the person you are for your entire life is possible. The people I have most respected and admired in my life have been true to themselves. These people are referred to as “having no filter”. I want these people in my life. There is a freedom in losing that fear of what other people might think. When this is accomplished, you will surely bear witness to an incredible new life.
Get honest with yourself and take the journey with me. You are the most important person in your life!
