"I should know better"
"I've already handled this so why are we having this conversation again?"
"I teach this stuff but I can't GET it myself"
"OMG there it is AGAIN!"
Talking with a client about these stories and blocks and issues. Yeah. They are like weeds that come back over and over again. We keep pulling them out and up they pop again. Stupid little things.
Here's the thing - there is always a next layer to uncover.
We don't just check things off the list and move on.
You know why?
Because you're never the same person 2 moments in a row.
We are always changing, always expanding and contracting.
Your heart doesn't say - okay I think I got this beat thing down, what's next?
Your lungs don't say - hey being full of air feels really good, let's just hold it forever.
We keep beating.
We keep taking air in and out.
We always grow.
Which means those weeds always come back.
We do get to notice them faster and faster.
We do get to be really great at picking them before they take root.
It's like wanting a red car and then seeing them everywhere... the more work we do on ourselves, the more we see the threads of it show up in different ways in different places.
We do get to do all of that without judging the fact that we have weeds in the first place.
We are human beings.
You'll never truly be finished with this list.. throw it out.
You don't need to feel shame, or beat yourself up, or feel like a fraud or unworthy because of the very natural way of being in the very real world.
