I often have clients who do not think they're awesome and when I challenge this, they have a long list of reasons why they're not awesome. Sometimes it includes seeing me. If you see someone like me, then you're not awesome, they say, because they're needing support.
Seeing someone like me means that you're wanting change, that you're ready to do the work, that you foresee a better way to live life for yourself and the people around you and that you're brave enough to reach out and tell another person and let that person into your life and share things that might otherwise stay hidden and cause pain and shame.
That's flipping awesome!
Even if I don't know you, I know you're awesome.
How can I?
For one, because you're reading this. And I don't mean in a 'stroking my ego' kind of way. I mean, because you care about personal development, about improving your life and learning, otherwise, you wouldn't still be reading.
Because you wake up every morning and give life another go - that's awesome!
If you're reading this, you're not dead - that's awesome!
If you like this post it means you care enough to make me feel good about what I'm sharing which is really kind and being kind is totally awesome!
The only thing I'm not so sure about is whether there's an age limit to using the word awesome? Or has that already been abandoned by the young and cool anyway?
Your life, your choice.
Until next time, stay safe - and sane - and be kind, to yourself and others.
We only get one shot at this one life so why not make it a beautiful one?
