I had a Master’s degree in people pleasing. I always had a demon on my shoulder ‘like me! like me! Like me! Please! Like me Please!” I didn’t even know I did. But it felt rotten.
I noticed I’d functioned from this contracted place when I was at the Denver airport, going to get my bags, going to an Access Consciousness Level 2 / 3 class in May. It was so odd, but just having that awareness allowed for me to choose something different. So, I had that people pleasing degree revoked this year. Self love is Sexy.
Now I’m playing the “I’m Hot Stuff!” game*. People will leave you for it. You’ve got to be willing to leave them behind. Notice something though? You have YOU. And what better way to shine your light is there?
*To Play The “I Am Hot Stuff!” game. 3 steps are involved. 1) you are more willing to see yourself as the kind caring being you are. If you don’t know what that looks like, think of a kind and caring person you know. Now, see yourself through their eyes. 2) You can ask the Universe, “Show me the contribution I am being.” 3) You are willing to loose self-judgement. You are not trying to prove yourself. You are willing to relax into the knowing of your Being.
Live Your Brilliance,
