be free, be you

I Think the World is Ready for YOU!

A picture of Northern Lights with a Rumi Quote: ” Stop acting so small. You are the Universe in ecstatic motion.” Rumi

There are two things that I know and one is that we are here on earth to be who we are in all of our Glory. In fact, we are meant to excel at being who we are. Our uniqueness and individuality is supposed to be the way of it.

Why then do we dim down or hide?

And most often guess who we are really hiding from?

Ourselves!!!! We often keep ourselves hidden away, afraid to let the ‘real’ us out for fear that we are not adequate, or that people might see the ‘real’ us. HA HA HA. We are missing the very point!

As another quote goes:

“When you realize how perfect everything is, you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky.”

I think the world is ready for ‘us’. I think the world is ready for ‘me’ and I think the world is ready for ‘YOU” my friend.

In fact, I think the world needs us right now to really show up to the plate and be who we are meant to be. If not now, when?

The second thing I know to be true, is that change is a constant. Boy, don’t we know that these days? 🙂

So that brings me back around to how we view change, or how we adjust and maneuver changes in our lives. For example, we can dig our feet into the ground and stamp our feet or we can dance with change like the waves dance in the ocean… to and fro… and adjusting as we go.

Here is an example of what I mean, just on a smaller scale. It is 5:57 am and I have been awake since about 3 am. I went to bed earlier than I normally do and woke up and couldn’t go back to sleep. But instead of fighting it and stressing about it, I am just enJOYing the time.

I watched a little Netflix, listened to a mediation and when I was still awake I thought I would get up and write. So here I am. Writing and in all my Glory being me expressing myself as a part of the Universe in motion and it feels GOOD. It feels really GOOD my friends because I am being ‘me’ and I am not fighting or arguing with ‘what is’ aka that I cannot sleep.

I am going with the rhythm of what is and I am not in resistance. And when we are not in resistance we are not in pain. 🙂 Now that is a peaceful and JOYous place to be.

I hope whenever you are reading this that you be sure to make it an AMAZING day and that YOU, my friend, get your YOU dance on today and let the ‘REAL’ you out to play on this GLORIOUS day!

Oh and if you are reading this in the early am… Good Morning Beautiful! 🙂

forgiveness, Forgiving

More on ForGIVEness

“The path of forgiveness takes us back into ourselves, where the source of all conflict begins.” Michael Dawson

Peace starts within. The fastest track to peace, is through forgiveness.

If you are in pain and feel some forgiveness for yourself would help, try this exercise:

Throughout your days find examples or times when you can practice forgiving yourself. Just think of it like a school lesson or an activity that your are participating in rather than judging or evaluating why you feel you shouldn’t be forgiven.

And these can be little things. For example, you say that you are going to do something that day and you end up not doing it. Maybe it was like me today saying “I am going to get the bedroom organized the way I want it”, and I didn’t complete that task. This is a perfect example of a way to practice forgiveness. I am telling myself right now that it is okay that you didn’t get that done. Relax Maggie it’s okay. It’s okay.

I know this might sound silly but the more ‘practice’ you can have forgiving even yourself, the more you work the forgiveness muscle and it becomes easier to forgive and it can happen quicker.

And then you can practice forgiving others and that too becomes easier. It starts to feel like taking off an icky coat or cloak that you are wearing and you don’t want to wear it anymore!

When we forgive we are FREE! I have written before on the power of forGIVEness and you can read those posts here. Perhaps you will find them helpful.

And if you are having a hard time today for whatever reason, I am right now sending you Love and Support. Stay strong and may peace be with you.

Mothers & Motherhood

Blessed Is The Mother

Blessed is the mother

whose tasks are a labor of love.

For she is a willing servent

to her Heavenly Father above.

Blessed is the mother

who mends hearts and broken toys

For she shows her children kindness

and fills their lives with JOY.

Blessed is the mother

who teaches her children to pray

For she gives them each a blessing

that remains throughout their days.

Blessed is the mother

who knows childhood years will pass

And spends the time she has for now

to make memories

that will last.

Breaking Down To Break Through

Quote by Maggie Holbik: “Sometimes in life we fall down or even hit rock bottom because we are meant to find something there”. #trust

Life has its ups and downs and it is interesting indeed. In fact the ebb and flow of life is what makes in interesting. :=)

Hitting Rock Bottom

However, there are times where we fall or hit our bottom. Whether it is through the loss of loved ones, addictions, illness, job loss, breakups, trauma, or just anything that we feel derails us and brings us to our knees.

In life we all experience these to one degree or another, or our loved ones and friends and colleagues do, because this is life.

These derailing times can be hard, very hard.

However, as a person who loves to offer HOPE and inspiration, I reflected on the quote I made above, and I could indeed find many examples and stories of people that I know who have shared their stories of how their rock bottom led them to a new chapter in their life and often times that new chapter was a beautiful one.

I remember reading somewhere or hearing someone say “When you throw your hands up in the air and give up, that is the best thing to happen”. Why? Because it means we stop the fight and we ‘break down to break through”. This is where the magic happens because we no longer are in resistance.

The Sweetness of All Of It

Through my years of my own experiences and hardships, my coaching of others and my own relationships, I have taken from these tough experiences, the ‘sweetness’. What do I mean by the sweetness?

I mean things like:

. When we have had an illness and we recover or it gets better, we no longer take our health for granted.

. When we lose someone we love, we are reminded to cherish those who are still here on earth next to us.

. When we give up our fight with our addiction(s) and find freedom.

. When we have learned boundaries that were necessary and can now feel safe and even experience JOY from this.

. When we decide that we have more power over our circumstances than we once thought, it brings freedom and peace of mind.

. When a relationship ends and we start the real relationship with ourselves and understand self-love.

. When we move or move on and find new things to cherish and new things to experience.

These are just a few examples of ‘the sweetness’ and I am sure you can come up with some of your own too. 🙂

I hope that this post has offered you something, whether it is insight, strength, HOPE, or anything at all that helps. That would make MY heart happy.

And as always, if you are struggling and need help, please reach out. It takes strength and courage to reach out and I know that you have that. I believe in you.

With Much Love,

Maggie
