It got me thinking about the walls we routinely encounter in our lives, and how we can find ways to break through. How do we go about transforming our walls… into space for new windows?
The answer I continually return to is… awareness and attunement. By acknowledging where and how these walls show up in our lives, we begin to recognize where and how new windows can be carved for light to filter through.
So why did I still feel so paralyzed to take action towards truly changing my approach?
Having the courage, faith, and fortitude to face our fears is the only way for tangible change to be materialized and new awareness to be integrated into our underlying approach.
This overdoing, overcompensating, over-consuming mentality of external striving hijacks our inner systems, misleading us into taking bigger steps before their time is due, and often sinking the ship on our dreams before we’ve truly learned to sail.
The emptiness we feel inside cannot be filled up by anything outside of us. It stems from within and the filling up process materializes on its own time for each of us through patience, persistence, and faith.
Small steps are more likely to lead to sustainable change than “going big or going home” ever will be.
The insidious nature of the misconception, that growth at all costs and external possessions will somehow satiate our emptiness inside, hides within our overworked "everything-now" delusion.
Taking on this added responsibility, has forced me to learn how to build a supportive team and work culture, allowing me to dictate all touch points of the Solid Threads brand experience.
What fears and misconceptions are holding you back? What small actions can you take in your daily routine to make more room for your deepest desires, lying in wait beyond your highest walls?
