BUT You DESERVE To Sit With The Cool Kids!
Have you ever had one of those moments where you you think you’ve grown leaps and bounds on your journey and you’re thrown right back into a feeling you could really have done without?
Well, I had that this past week as I went to a book signing for a mentor of mine, Gabby Bernstein. Although this feeling hasn’t held me back lately, it does make me uncomfortable. While most people are excited for these events, I can tend to feel a mix of excitement and anxiety. I’m always excited for the info, to see and meet new people that I could potentially create magic with, but then I get in the room and I get that old feeling, the old, “you can’t sit with us” feeling. Despite being in a room filled with love, I found I was worried about being good enough or letting my social anxiety not allow the “real” me to come through. It seems big rooms trigger my old beliefs that I am not worthy to “sit” with the popular kids. I can sometimes feel myself getting awkward and having this thought creep in. Now, we all know how important it is to make sure we are meeting and connecting with people who inspire us and are doing the things we desire to be doing, but OH. MY. GOODNESS. Why can this make us feel so nervous when they are just people?!
Why am I sharing this? Because I made a decision last week when this feeling came up for the millionth time, in that very moment. I made a choice to see everyone in these rooms as peers, as my equals, as if we are all one, feeling the same thing, sharing the same fears, thoughts, etc because….we are. This does not mean it’s going to go away, but what it does mean is that I will intentionally notice when I am putting people on a pedestal and remember that the beauty, talent and magic I see in their soul is just a reflection of mine.
We are all being called to the same message because we are all connected. The message is bigger than all of us so in order to get the this very vital message out we must shed our fears and comparison. We can’t step into our magic completely until we start to believe this. You are amazing. I see it because it is in me.
Sending you big love today to remind you that you’re a freaking unicorn.
