When I first became an instructor I figured it would be years before I taught workshops or people to be teachers. I thought retreats were not something I could do. Then not too long after I did begin teaching workshops. And not because I was given permission or teaching someone else’s. But, because there was room for me. And, that means there is room for you too!
Let me explain, there is zero room for you to copy someone else. So, if you are sitting there thinking that I’m wrong at that there is no room, that everyone has done this or that. You are probably right. But, you’re not trying to be them, to copycat anyone.
If you are totally honest, authentic and all things vulnerable there is room for you!
If you show up, fully as your self and unapologetically do your thing there is room for you!
If you do everything the way others have done it. Well, no wonder it’s cramped and feels icky and like you’re going up a stream without a paddle.
Here’s the deal my friends, when you try to do something someone else did because you think it worked for them so it will work for me. The outcome never really feels good.
But, when you do what you feel compelled to do. And you do it with your voice and your intentions and your sweat and tears of joy it feels sooo good!
If you don’t believe me, take a look at how many donut shops there are around you. Cupcake stores, jean brands, and now sparkling water flavors! There is room for YOU!
But, only the WHOLE YOU!
So, are you ready to take up space?
This week, what will you do to show up?
