[If It’s A Case Of JUST Being Your, Why Is It So Hard To Do?]
So often we are told to “JUST” be ourselves.
But if it was a case of “JUST” being ourselves, we wouldn’t need to be told, would we?
“JUST” implies it’s straightforward, smooth and simple.
If it was straightforward, smooth and simple to be yourself, you would have “JUST” done it by now right?y
“JUST” insinuates that we have deep, detailed and distinct definitions of WHO we are and HOW we want to show up in the world.
If we all had those deep, detailed and distinct definitions, we wouldn’t ever question ourselves.
“JUST” suggests that we all acknowledge, understand and accept EVERY aspect of ourselves enough to own it.
If we could acknowledge, understand and accept every aspect of ourselves, we wouldn’t give ourselves a hard time about the things we fuck up.
“JUST” indicates that we all have a clear and conscise description of all that we are and all that we are not.
If we had clear and conscise descriptions for all that we are and all that we are not, we wouldn’t find ourselves being someone we are not.
I have NO doubt that moving through the days of your life as the YOUIEST version of you is the key to a life of fun, freedom, fulfilment and happiness.
But, for me, “JUST” downplays it’s importance, discredits it’s influence and degrades its impact on your life.
Creating the definitions, understanding and accepting ourselves and being able to describe who we are and who we are not is some of THE most demanding work we can ever do.
I had to fly all the way to Thailand to spend 10 days giving it my undivided attention and I STILL have plenty of work to do.
But I am CERTAIN that this is some of THE most important, influential and impactful work you will EVER do.
Because once you do, you will have the user manual of how to be YOU.
So that you can, in fact, “JUST” be you.
Truth, Joy, Love
P.s. Over in the tribe we will be getting into some of the actual practises to start writing the manual to you.
But you gotta be in it to win it, so to speak.
