Did you know that most people live their entire life without doing the one thing that they always longed to do? It’s true. Most people had a secret desire to be a dancer, a performer, a stand-up comedian, paint, draw, write poetry and they chastise themselves for being silly. “I always wanted to do that, but my parents couldn’t afford it.” Then they grew up to where they can afford it for themselves, but they tell themselves the same old story that their parents told them… Even after their parents are not around, they hear that familiar voice in their head telling them all the reasons not to.
It’s no longer their parents saying it. It’s themselves!!! It’s now a pattern!
Life is about living it to the fullest, having fun and creating Joy. So, the next time you have the thought. “I always wanted to do something like that.” Listen to yourself and take some action to give it a try! My parents went zip-lining a couple of years ago and had a BLAST! Get that bucket list out and start living your life.
If you ever thought about learning to play an instrument, think again about renting one. They are not that expensive to rent. See if you like it. You can turn on YouTube and get free lessons! You will be surprised how allowing yourself to do something you have denied yourself will free up your energy in other areas of you life.
I have a friend who said how much she used to love to go dancing. Sadly, now she has nine pins in her ankle and continues to tell herself that she will never dance again. So… I took her dancing! She had so much fun! No, she couldn’t dance like she used to, but she rocked the house with the use of her cane and enjoyed it so much she went back and began dancing regularly.
Take action! Break those patterns! And remember to catch yourself if you are saying “Stupid” things to yourself to “Stop IT!!” Stop Talking Old Patterns Intend Transformation!
There are also lots of class replays listed on the website. www.thecourtofatonement.com The Need for Retaliation is a big one for getting some of the really stuck energy to move.
