Awareness is the opportunity to DO BETTER!!

Sometimes looking at ourselves is the hardest thing to do.  It's so much easier to point the finger at someone else, but truly who do we have the power to change?  Did you learn when you were younger the saying, "when you're pointing your finger at someone else, you have 3 fingers pointing right back at you." ??

I don't know if you're like me.  To the outside world, I had it all.  Financial success, married, amazing kids, we traveled when we wanted.  But my heart was yearning for more.  I wasn't feeling satisfied and something was definitely missing.  I didn't have "heart success"!! It was just a nice package, but inside I was not full.

But here's the key!  You have the power to assess exactly where you are at!  This is the time to be brutally honest with yourself.  It will hurt, you will feel all the feels, you will wonder how it is that you've even come this far in life.  This is a time to have a few very trusted people in your life that will be honest with you!  You can't change what you won't acknowledge or are not aware of.  Some of these things came easy to me and I made huge changes right away.  Some of these I needed to hold onto for just a wee bit longer, (and I mean a lot longer) and some things were revealed as I walked down the path!  To begin any journey we have to know where we are starting.  How exciting that we get to put that pin in our life map and proudly claim, I AM HERE!!    And I love that awareness because it means I get a chance to do better and be better!   

I have grown more in the last 5 years of my life, been challenged more in my personal development than my entire life.  And it all started with that awareness.  I hope you'll look at awareness as a challenge; the opportunity that it is!

 I just did probably one of the most vulnerable things I've ever done, and that was write my story for a book.  It comes out next month along with some very incredible women in a book series called Overcoming Mediocrity ~ Victorious Women.  This is where I began sharing the journey to my heart success!  I share about not judging a book by it's cover and how an accidental meeting set me up on the best discoveries of my life!!
