Are You Watering Down Your Fire?
If you haven't heard, it's summer time! That means it’s time to get out there, show up, and set the world on fire with your unique gifts, talents and accomplishments.
But what happens if instead of showing up on stage and stealing the show, you’re actually pulling your head back into your shell?
You might be unconsciously “watering down” your own fire. Believing that you’re not worthy of praise or love. And it might be showing up in ways that you hadn’t even considered, too.
Think of it for a moment….how do you receive compliments? Is it with heartfelt gratitude...or with excessive modesty and maybe even embarrassment?
Maybe when you see someone else being celebrated, you might get that gut-punch that makes you cower in the corner, feeling like you could never be “good enough”. Or perhaps, you have a difficult time celebrating someone else’s “wins”. This can be a direct reflection of the inner turmoil you feel about yourself. Not being able to celebrate others accomplishments is a big clue that you are not letting your own light fully shine.
These are just a few ways that we tend to “water down” our own personal fire. And we might not even know it!
But the good news is that you do deserve to be recognized and admired for who you are--whether you believe it right now or not. True story.
How do you start to believe that for yourself, though?
It all begins with awareness--and noticing your self-talk without judgement. I invite you to start noticing the moments where you shrink down, hide out, or hold back. Notice when you start to put the walls up to subconsciously protect your soft spots...Notice when your vulnerabilites show up.
Only then can you provide them with the strength, healing, and love that they deserve.
And from there allow yourself to be loved, respected, and admired for all that you have to offer the world!
So how do you even start believing that you’re a true “leading lady”? Look out for my next post where I’ll be sharing tips to bring back your inner personal fire--Feng Shui style!
