What I know for sure is the statement "The only way out is through" is one of the truest statements I have ever come to know. It's newer to my lexicon, about 3 1/2 years to be exact, but that's when I realized all the dancing around my problems wasn't going to do a damn thing to solve them.
As my coach John says (paraphrasing) "Instead of wringing my hands in woe, I needed to use those hands to roll up my sleeves and get to work!"
Day after day, class after class I see people wringing their hands, fearing the next step because rolling up your sleeves requires courage and action on your part. And let me be clear, action is not your overactive mind replaying things again and again. #nicetry
It's "suiting up" to begin the walk into the places you haven't wanted to go. It's acknowledging and seriously working on things you don't want to look at. It's owning your part so you can get your life back. It's knowing that wearing the cloak of "victim" no longer serves you.
I love watching people come into class wringing their hands, even in the process of rolling up their sleeves but it's when they begin to walk into what's dogging them that the real miracles begin.
I never envisioned nor do I want the classes I offer people to become a never-ending thing. It would bring me no joy to see you for years and years in the same classes dealing with the same issues. Getting better, healing and moving forward toward contentment, that's the point.
What brings me joy is seeing your journey "through" because as I said at the beginning of this piece, I know first-hand that peace and freedom lie only on the other side of "through."
What you don't deal with, deals with you, my friends. Again and again.
Tired of wringing?
Liberation lies just on the other side of rollin' and walkin'.
Sleeves UP! Boots ON!
You got this. <3
