In response to my post I received some supportive comments. I have permission to post the following that I think is valuable:
Your soul poured out here is a precious gift for all of is to process and for that alone, I am grateful you are part of our team.
The most poignant phrase that stuck out to me was when you coined the phrase, “store-bought happiness.” Man did that strike a cord! My friend you are waking up!! You’re getting it! Just like you have with so many other addictions!
You have the skill set. . . And you have been successful over and over and over again. Congratulations on climbing those mountains and reaching the summit!
You are a mountain climber! And this may very well be your mount Everest! Nobody said it was going to be easy. The thing is; as a team, we have starting the climb; the climb out of the pile of store bought happiness that we have surrounded ourselves in, thinking that these items were all necessities for the journey. Yet we have come to a place where the Sherpa is showing us that in order to make this climb a success we have to lighten out load, take only what’s necessary and remember to breathe. The higher you climb, the more important it is that you have oxygen to breathe.
Your ticket to climbing this mountain is tucked into your memory bank. All you need to do is reach in find a past experience that reminds you of the challenge you are faced with currently and match it up, repeat the skills you used to conquer the last challenge, remind yourself of how you feel because you slaughtered that challenge…shore up that feeling…. and slay Another! DO IT AGAIN! You’ve got this!
1. You have slayed the mighty dragon of DRUGS!
2. You have slayed the mighty sloth of VIDEO GAMES
3. You have slayed the filthy toxic cancer stick of CIGARETTES!
4. You have slayed the slobbering monster of ALCOHOL!
5. You have slayed the slippery snake of SHOPPING!
YOU ARE THE MASTER MONSTER SLAYER!!!!
YOU ARE OUR MIGHTY WARRIOR and a shining example of knowing that WE CAN DO THIS!
What an honor it is to have you with us on this journey.
There is not a one of us, who have come this far in life without slaying a few monsters ourselves…… BUT YOU?!?!?!?!?
You have slayed some giants that so many others are still imprisoned by.
So my encouragement to you…
Is to keep sharing. Tell us how you’ve done it before and how you will apply this skill to your latest challenge.
We are here yo learn from each other, see ourselves in each other and link arms with each other.
We are climbing Mount Everest together and each one of us will have insights, thoughts, ideas, and inspirations that will get us ALL TO THE TOP!!!
You’re not far behind. That’s an illusion!
Believing that you don’t know what to do is another illusion… it’s a lie! Don’t believe it! Don’t look back at what you’ve done “wrong” so far…. because it’s not wrong …that’s a lie… you’ve been a master observer and your cells are freaking out because they recognize the new pattern that you are now in the process of creating ….which is SLAYING ANOTHER MONSTER!!!!!!
And your sick cells are scared… they know their days are numbered and they are doing everything they can to keep you imprisoned in the greatest deceit that the food industry has pulled off on ALL OF US!!!
So dust off those tools you’ve used in the past. Shine them up, Start deep breathing and let those weak sick cells know that Daddy is coming home! He’s bringing with him a whole lotta self love, some wonderful nourishing REAL FOOD that will make them feel AMAZING!! And thank them. Thank them for screaming and crying and waking you up to the discomfort of this brutal lie that you’ve been living, that happiness is store-bought, quick and easy, in and out. . .
and I don’t know about you but I can’t stand liars! Don’t trust them, Don’t want them in my circle of influence and definitely can’t rely on them because they are untrustworthy.
It’s time to break up with the liars, the cheaters, and the stealers of your true happiness, your true joy, your true love of self… You and only you can love you that much…. and it’s time my friend. It’s time.
Thank you for spilling the “canned beans” ??
YOU’VE GOT THIS! WE’VE GOT THIS ??
