Living Life with

, the Freedom to 

Just Be

What was your Big Dream? 

Several years ago I read a study that got me thinking about my childhood dream. The researchers claimed that whatever it is a child dreams of becoming at age 8, is actually their life's purpose! Their data revealed that 94% of adults are NOT living their childhood dream; they did not report on the reasons why not. What was your childhood dream? Are you living it?

If you still had those childlike qualities, what would you have done differently? What would your life look like today? 

What experiences in your story caused you to abandon your hopes and dreams?  You were just a kid. How were you to know that by letting go of those magical childlike qualities you possessed, that you would also be abandoning your true self. When being curious, adventurous and fearless wasn't accepted, you began to associate these qualities with negative consequences. You stopped taking risks, you learned to see obstacles instead of possibility, you stopped being relentless about asking for what you want, you learned that comfortable kept you safe.

 

You were just a kid, how were you to know that the Gift of Your Story was the Uncomfortable.

 

Now you're an adult who feels safe behind the mask of comfortable. How were you to know that the Curse of Your Story is the "mask"!

If you want to experience the world through the eyes of a child again, to feel excited and alive; there's a way to get that feeling back!

What is              ?

These are the childlike qualities that once allowed you the Freedom to Just Be You. Living life with them will help you rediscover what it's like to live from your heart, not your head..  

                               is what helps you feel connected, less alone and part of something bigger than yourself & your story.

 

It's the foundation for staying true to who you are at your core.

Learning to treat yourself with                              how you uncover strength in vulnerability and unleash the power of authenticity.

A life without

  • You're heart will be empty of a love that's genuine & pure

  • You're mind will be filled with fear, frustration, judgment, anger and uncertainty

  • All that you do and say is based on what's in your mind, not in your heart

  • Your mind will make you believe that it isn't "safe" to "Just Be" yourself

  • The burden of hiding the real you allowing yourself to be seen or heard for who you truly are will slowly destroy the "real you"

  • The fear, frustration, judgment, anger and uncertainty that you once felt towards yourself will be projected onto all the people you come in contact with.
