Each day, laptop and children permitting, I’ll share a prompt that’s been on my mind, and a few of my thoughts.
You are welcome to share your own perspective in the comments, or just journal it out!
Is there a part of myself that I hesitate to embrace?
One of the biggest ways I live from a place of scarcity, rather than abundance, is people-pleasing. Can you relate?
Sometimes, external demands cause us to unconsciously hold back pieces of our identity, rather than fully embrace who we are.
And, this is different from curation.
We choose – and rightly so – what we feel safe entrusting to others. But, does peer pressure ever cause you to be less than honest with yourself?
For example, I would love to make an income, even a small one, as a blogger/writer/podcaster.
It almost feels taboo to say it out loud, because “making money” usually has a selfish connotation.
But, did you know there are several reasons that isn’t selfish?!
- Providing for our families while being present with them?
- Financial security and the ability to help others in need?
- Making a difference with the lessons life is constantly teaching us?
Only, it’s easy to get caught up in how we “should” talk, or feel, about money and, dare I say, “influencers”.
The truth is, we all have influence – for better or for worse.
The good kind starts with you believing in yourself.
