INTERMISSION™: Taking 100% Responsibility

INTERMISSION™: Taking 100% Responsibility


This may be a tough one for some of you...
Particularly if you're in a relationship whether it's romantic, friendly or professional where you feel someone is taking advantage of you or you're looking to him/her to give you a sense of peace or wholeness or security.

Most of us think of relationships as 50/50 propositions.
But Gay Hendricks says otherwise in his book The Big Leap.
You are 💯% responsible and they are 💯% responsible.

You might ask..."How the 'f' does that work because that adds up to 200%?" Well, that's because it's not about them.

It's about you.

You knowing that you have all you need within you already. That no person can "make" you feel whole or in some cases inadequate or secure.

It's knowing that you are perfect in your imperfection and are 100% okay with that.

That doesn't mean you don't take responsibility for your words or actions. It means that you don't NEED another person to say or do anything to create a feeling of peace within you.
Because you always have it. It's always there.
You simply need to access it.

And you access it by getting radically honest with yourself and then radically accepting yourself.

From this place you access that peaceful place withing and can take action that's in alignment with who you truly are and what you truly desire for yourself.

Would love to hear about a time in your life when you were radically honest and what you learned.
Remember we learn from one another.

INTERMISSION™: Questioning Your Relationship...where are you now?

INTERMISSION™: Questioning Your Relationship...where are you now?

Last week we strolled back in time to where you began. If you missed step 1, you can revisit it HERE.

This week, we are all about the present...where are you now...and we're going to peek into your present day relationship with Soulful Life: Relationships - Where Are We Now insight sheets.

We are creating the full spectrum picture of your relationship each week, but I'd like to point out that it is also important to look at yourself int his process as well. 

Actually it's probably the most important step yet the one that is most often overlooked or skipped altogether.

Why?

Because looking at ourselves is hard. It can feel icky.

Looking to someone else as the source of our discomfort is so much easier. We can clearly see where they are going wrong; how they are to blame.

But here's the thing, we create our own reality so it is important to take a look at ourselves and our role in the relationship.

For now, we are going to complete the relationship picture and then set it aside so we can get into the good stuff...YOU. :)

INTERMISSION™: How We Can Rise Strong

INTERMISSION™: How We Can Rise Strong

I shared a small sampling of the passages that felt supportive and healing as it relates to feelings of powerlessness/despair as fuel for hope and powerful action...at least that was my interpretation of Brene's profound work.

The 
#CardOfTheDay spoke of forgiveness and giving yourself a break. Put down the burdens you've been carrying and imagine life without them...then go do it!

I'll leave you with a few quotes from Rising Strong... "Hope happens when we can set goals, have the tenacity and perseverance to pursue those goals, and believe in our own abilities to act." "Hope is a function of struggle." "...hope is learned.
"...we have to resist and unlearn old habits, like the tendency to give up when things get tough. "
