I’ve been listening to some fabulous speakers, authors, and life coaches the past few weeks. Listening to TEDs talks and watching youtube videos. I’m a committed lifetime learner, to growing and changing, hopefully, each day becoming better than the day before.
And one thing stood out to me yesterday from this one incredible woman. She said “let your baggage fuel you. Stand on your story. See what and where you come from as because of instead of despite of.”
This week my mind has been on all of the things many of these speakers have talked about, which leads me to today’s word…transformation.
See I want to be transformed! I want to grow, to live the life I dream of. I don’t want mediocrity! I want all the things that I dream of as possibilities to become reality. Not that my life is some terrible life, sure I have things I would change, but it’s not all that difficult. But I want more, I want to truly LOVE my life! To be on fire, passionate about this life!
To get this, I have to be willing to be transformed into a new being. Be willing to make changes to my daily life, we have to be willing to take risks and to fall or fail, but to fail forward and to learn when we fall. I have to be willing to let go of the past, to stop letting it hinder my future. We often get stuck in the could have, should have, would have’s of this life. Or the if only’s as I have mentioned before. But to truly transform, we have to let go and I love the idea that we have to STAND ON OUR STORY, stop letting it break us, instead let it fuel us! Let our stories be told, let them be the jumping off point for propelling us forward.
I think becoming the women, the mothers, the wives, friends, etc that we want to be, to reach the greatness that we all have the potential to achieve, we have to be willing to be transformed…to go through a dramatic change and come out a new being. As I celebrated another birthday, as I am blessed to live another day, I hope to keep changing and growing so that I am transformed into who I am meant to be. May you be as well.
