You know when you wake up with a song in your head and it just keeps playing and playing? Well, that’s me today and the song…..Wilson Phillips: Hold On
All, I keep hearing is the refrain: “I know that there is pain, but you hold on for one more day and break free from the chains”
Yes, I am aware that I just began this post with Wilson Phillips lyrics, but hang in there with me, this is going somewhere.
So, you may know that, my life purpose is to solve the problem of deep exhaustion and all of it’s offshoots: hormonal issues, mental fog, pain and frustration.
What I see in my head when I think about the place I used to operate from when I was exhausted and unbalanced, I see: me running on a hamster wheel. On that wheel, I kept thinking, if I can just hang in there, if I can just make it one more time around, it will slow down, it will get better.
Then, one day, I realized, this doesn’t get better, it doesn’t change, it just keeps going around and around. I don’t need to hang in there, I need to leap off.
So, when this song entered my head today, and I found myself hearing those lyrics over and over I just kept thinking, this is not how it is supposed to go.
What has perpetually hanging in there ever gotten us?
One more time around the wheel?
Is that all we hope for? Is that what our beautiful, magical, DIVINE inspired lives are meant for?
I am certain the answer is NO.
So, take a deep breath….all the way in….all the way out, now, do it again….
Close you eyes and sit for one moment and imagine: what do you really desire? What does your best life, your best physical body, your best mental state look like? What does it feel like?
I am going to guess, you did not see you running on the wheel.
So, it is time to Leap!
Invoke your essential magic, lean into it, let it guide you.
And if you need a hand to hold and some help making the leap, reach out, that’s what I do.
No matter what, choose the leap, because it ALWAYS beats running on that wheel and hanging in there for one more day.
