Moving from exhaustion to thriving on a regular basis especially during times like this, looks like learning to love consistency.
🤦🏻♀️ I used to have SUCH a hard time with that, which is why I’m writing this post!!
As a Canadian born 🇨🇦 woman of Italian 🇮🇹 descent I was so tired of constraints placed upon me, I just needed to be wildin’
I needed to feel SO FREE that nothing held me down …
🔥 🔥 🔥 I felt the burn of being a woman with no roots tethering her to her purpose in this life.
I’m talking confused about my identity (do I follow my precious old school Nonna and Biz Nonna’s path?? Or the white Canadian way since I was born here??)
I’m talking confused about how to be in relationship with a man because of how loud feminists are every day in my face, conflicting with my quiet voice inside telling me it has to be more loving, gentle, more nurturing than that.
I’m talking confusion around my body image, my health, what to eat, what not to eat, is it okay to “let go” as I get older and what do I do if I can’t stop “letting go” because that thing has got a life of its own?? (😂😂😂)
🤷🏻♀️ 🤷🏻♀️ 🤷🏻♀️ And what about my harsh inner voice criticizing me for not being consistent all day long? How am I gonna bust through THAT to even begin “kinda” liking consistency, let alone actually practicing and DOING it??
—the ONLY thing that worked was to start very small, very slow, one step at a time, doing exactly what my soul loved and wanted to and felt strongly to do.
Move my pen, of course!
I’ve loved journaling and writing since I was a young girl and when I committed to it daily, every day … like EVERY single day, the benefit I received from it made any past resistance around consistency melt away.
This post is getting long so I won’t write a giant list of benefits, tho there are MANY, I’ll just share the biggest one:
Getting attuned to our souls by writing in our journals DAILY is the point of life – seriously.
📢 📣 I mean, there’s SO MUCH noise in the world, most of us are running around not knowing what we really truly deeply want – we’re just listening to what everyone else wants, going along with them, ending up exhausted, dissatisfied, unhealthy on every level.
That’s what I did! I didn’t understand the value of leading my own life, starting with the deepest part of my soul.
Tuning into my desires there, FIRST, before I do anything else, then learning how to communicate gracefully, while at the same time experiencing fulfillment by living the life I was destined and born to live.
