I was having a particularly challenging moment this morning. I do not have them often but when I do, like anyone else, I feel sad (sometimes to the point of having a good cry). I feel sorry for myself and feel completely stopped regarding how to solve the problem and get on with my life. Luckily, my moment hit while I was on a call with a member of my advisory board. This woman is a trusted colleague and friend who knows how to listen powerfully and provide me the space I need to work through a challenge. She said, “There are only so many times we can brush things under the carpet, until we can no longer walk on the carpet because it is too lumpy!” What a great analogy! Imagine all those negative experiences having shape and form and trying to walk over them, like a moving blob of disruption. She also reminded me that emotional challenges which are of the highest priority to us, when stifled or ignored for long periods of time, help us to manifest physical ailments in our body that represent the stifling… like fat, aches & pains and God forbid, cancer. What a wake-up call! The second I made the decision to live my fullest, healthiest life and conquer my challenge, my trusted colleague also came up with the perfect resource for me to call next. Commit to the change and mountains move to get out of your way!
