The last month-ish felt like it kicked my ass.
It started with a sick kid that kept me up at night, a few stressful family situations, another kid home sick from school, then dental work that led to a root canal(!), and “feedback” that… ugh… sucked.
All this while running my business, taking care of kiddos, trying to connect to my husband, making dinners, planning a birthday party, getting our roof replaced, and trying to squeeze in some self-care too. You get the idea.
If you’re struggling, or feeling like Ease is stupid impossible right now, it’s alright.
You’re not alone and this feeling is not forever.
The tricky bit about “contrast” is that most times it doesn’t automatically point us in the direction of greatness (wouldn’t that be nice?). Instead, many of us will lock our focus on what sucks, worry about what’s next, mentallly replay shitty events, and talk to others about it, too. Then, we energetically attract more of what sucks and feel stuck.
You’re just focusing on the contrast.
It’s not the crap experiences, as much as we want to blame them for suckfest, it’s forgetting your own power.
But, that’s alright. I forgot for a second how powerful I was too, but I made my way back and you can, too.
Here’s the cool thing: If you feel a sense of softening or excitement by just being reminded that you’re powerful then you’re already pivoting toward Ease RIGHT NOW.
Because you’re already making an energetic shift.
Acknowledge that, tell yourself “I’m turning this around right now.”
Notice that it doesn’t take a great amount of time, but just a bit of focus toward what thought or action FEELS BETTER.
