Be honest with yourself. What do you really want?
Don’t be shy now, say it out loud, write it everywhere, declare your desires and intentions with the world.
What do you really want for yourself and your life?
Read between the lines of the declarations as they pour forth from your heart, and stop pushing them away.
I remember one evening a few years ago sobbing my heart out on my bed, holding Peggy screaming at God, asking for my soul mate.
“Where is he! FFS, Please, please, please. Where is he?” Blub, blub, blub….
Then from somewhere deep inside my heart I heard, “Well you've never asked before Emma”
Then I cried even more… I knew it was true. I never did declare what I really wanted. I was always covering up what I really wanted with bravado and BS. “Oh I don't need a man to be happy…. Peggy and I are just fine… blah, blah, blah”.
Truthfully, I was lonely. Achingly lonely.
My heart whispering all the time…”but I want to share my life. Oneness, Unity, Deeper Understanding. Togetherness.”
I got real with myself and stopped trying to bullshit my heart. Then Jason walked into my life 3 months later. Boom!
When I declared what I wanted, I couldn't unsee the truth of my desires. I also plastered them all around me and took the necessary steps to create s-p-a-c-e in my life for that relationship. It’s a really, really important step and something I love to help others do as a coach.
What is it you are not being truthful with yourself about?
Is that relationship not perfect and you have your head in the sand?
Have you had enough of...“How’s the love life?” questions, when all you want to do is scream in their smug faces is “OH it’s just great. I’m actually desperately lonely and I’m really tired of going to weddings on my own and being asked that f*&&^%% question. How’s marriage working out for you?!”
Maybe you are not dealing with a health issue that you really need help and support with?
Be honest with yourself.
respect what your heart wants for you.
It’s desperately trying to get your attention to bring you everything you really want.
All you have to do is ask.
I’ll leave you with this excerpt from the much cherished Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert:
“There's a wonderful old Italian joke about a poor man who goes to church every day and prays before the statue of a great saint, begging, "Dear saint-please, please, please...give me the grace to win the lottery." This lament goes on for months. Finally the exasperated statue comes to life, looks down at the begging man and says in weary disgust, "My son-please, please, please...buy a ticket."
Prayer is a relationship; half the job is mine. If I want transformation, but can't even be bothered to articulate what, exactly, I'm aiming for, how will it ever occur? Half the benefit of prayer is in the asking itself, in the offering of a clearly posed and well-considered intention. If you don't have this, all your pleas and desires are boneless, floppy, inert; they swirl at your feet in a cold fog and never lift.”
