Living Authentically: Going Far Beyond
If there were several sentences that could sum up the work I do people, and at the same time convey a message of the magnificence that is the essence of each person, it would be this quote by Virginia Satir.
I want you to get excited about who you are, what you have and what can still be for you. I want to inspire you to see that you can go far beyond where you are right now.
All too often we caught up and bogged down in a story or issue that we just can’t quite move out of. Maybe it is something that we have known for a long time that we need to address or something more current that we are stuck in. From this perspective the same thoughts spin around and around keeping us stuck rather than moving forward. The more stuck we are the darker it becomes until our light is hidden from ourselves.
The light has not gone anywhere, it is still there waiting for you to uncover it. One of the most important things to learn is that perspective can move you from where you are into greater possibility.
It is true that we cannot change the circumstances of our life, but we can change our relationship to what happened. I grew up in a very violent and abusive home. This is a story I carried around far too long; it felt like a 500 pound weight on my heart. I could not change the circumstances of my life but I could change my relationship to what happened. By changing my perspective I could move out of my victim mentality and begin to forgive myself and others. Thankfully, this is not everyone’s story, but everyone has things that are weighing them down. If I could only teach one thing, it would be this: You are not meant to suffer and the most important thing you can is to uncover the light that is within you.
Blessings to you!
