When you make the decision to follow your instincts and trust heart, you can truly step into your power.
Once you truly step into your power, life starts to flow. Things will start falling into place. Good things happen naturally.
I learned this recently when I left my husband.
Being a mother and wife for 15 years, I had lost myself like so many women do. My adventurous, silly self got lost in parenthood and putting everyone else first. By the end, everything was a struggle and I felt like I was constantly swimming upstream.
Sometimes it’s hard to change directions when you are stuck in a toxic situation, but it IS possible. And once you make the change, you will know instantly if it was the right decision.
I tried to fix my marriage for over 7 years. I know, it’s a bit extreme …but I can honestly say I tried.
In the end, my husband and I simply did not communicate, and we wanted different things. He wanted to spend every winter in Japan working at a ski resort that his buddy owns. I wanted to travel to different places and create an online business that I could do from anywhere in the world. Having a stable home in Canada for my kids between trips was important to me. Not so much for him.
Hindsight is 20/20 and everything seems so inevitable looking back now. But I guess the only way to learn is to experience.
We wanted to separate many times, but when we finally made the decision to do it, things started falling into place. My life started to flow. I felt lighter. I felt myself becoming empowered. And it became clear that I really had made the right decision even though separating is always sad.
Since taking control of my life I feel happier, and have clarity on what I want out of life.
When you are on the right path, your life purpose will become clear. You will be less stressed about the small stuff make room for the things that matter.
Everyone has something they are good at or something they know a lot about. Everyone has something of value to offer. But it’s hard to find that specialness when you are in an unhealthy place. By making positive changes in your life, you can rediscover yourself and bring your talents to the surface.
Success in anything is a matter of reaching into your soul and bringing it to the surface. What are you passionate about? What skills do you have? What have you accomplished at some point in your life that you are proud of?
Taking the time to rediscover who you are and having the courage to step into your power is the first step to total happiness and fulfillment.
So be yourself, do what you love, and share it with the world.
To empowered women everywhere,
