Sex In The City (my style)
We met weekly to talk, laugh and drink tea together. We shared our lives easily, and we knew everything about one another. Each of us had chosen to be at home full-time to raise our kids, and it was my first real group of friends. We were a tight half dozen women in our mid 30s focused on family and home.
So … not quite Sex In the City…but kinda.
We believed our close circle would never end. We knew why we were here, and what life was all about and where it was going. Or so we thought.
We didn’t think much about personal growth back then.
Based on statistics, we read that one of the six of us would get cancer and I’m sure deep inside each of us, we all hoped we’d beat that odd.
Around that time, I wasn’t feeling so well. My doctor had referred me to a specialist to inquire about help for premature menopause. I had all the symptoms, but none of it made sense because I was too young.
Unfortunately that wasn’t all that didn’t make sense.
I was deeply dissatisfied with life; my relationship was crumbling, my body was falling apart, and I was fearful of my future.
What I read in the doctor’s waiting room was to change my life forever.
I picked up a book to pass the time before my appointment. It described “The Cancer Personality“. While reading all the characteristics of someone who would more than likely get cancer, the blood drained from my face and I felt chills inside of me.
I recognized myself in the writing. I had all the signs.
I knew in that moment I would be “the statistic”, and deep inside I realized something had to change.
What decision are you not making to change your life for the better?
I know I’m here today, completely healthy, because of that decision, and many more, that flowed from that eventful day.
Deep and meaningful personal development is instrumental in healing the Mind, Body and Spirit.
According to Tony Robbins human beings have 6 basic human needs; variety, love and connection and growth, as well as contribution, certainty and significance. All our needs are being tested right now, with the continued lock down, and how we respond to the turbulence in our world.
Personal development starts with AWARENESS and FORGIVENESS.
Clearings are needed to create awakening, expansion and growth.
They give rise to an “innate knowing” that more and better is always possible. Forgiveness is one way to start! ~ Gail Scott
Can you start today with forgiveness? For yourself, others and our world. We need this more than ever for our black friends, indigenous brothers and sisters, and for all who have been persecuted and treated unfairly.
And we need it for our own reconciliation, repatriation and repair of our hearts.
Last week I received a recommendation and gift from my fellow coach, Ron Tabachnick of RT Planning Strategies.
Ron always reads my newsletters and supports me in my journey and he asked me to share this with you. It’s one of the easiest modalities I’ve come across, and as I use it frequently (especially when I’m driving) I am happy to share.
Try it and you’ll see how easy it is.
It’s called Ho’oponopono.
This is one of the many tools I have available to assist you in your journey of personal growth. Feel free to reach out if you’re looking for more.
