During this last month, I have encountered some things that have really heightened my emotional awareness. I am really driven to be the best me possible, however it's not just me in the world. So I began asking myself, how does this drive impact others? Does it provide a positive impact? Do I really care one way or the other? These transparent moments of questions AND answers should be guidance to help me understand and reinforce my purpose and they do just that. However, the next level of questioning is what really gets me challenged. Once I've answered myself, then I go on to question my answers… Is this the answer because of MY Truth or is it what I THINK is expected of me.
I have found it very easy for myself and others to look at the lives of other people and attempt to pull back the layers of their life and criticize or celebrate them accordingly. However, it's often difficult for us to do it for ourselves. Are we allowing pride to keep us from meaningful relationships? Are we allowing walls of hatred to keep us from happiness? Are we allowing fear to isolate us from our success?
This month, I encourage us to pull back our own layers instead of looking at others to identify opportunities for growth and improvement.
So what is this month's Life Empowered Moment… It's simply this… Ask yourself, be honest with yourself, and deal with yourself in a manner that will build you not bury you!
