Hello! I wanted to let you in on a little secret.
Here’s my secret … I’m tired of seeing people hiding in their life and living behind a mask.
Yes, that’s right.
So many people feel that they are not worthy or not good enough. They have feelings of lack and of not measuring up. They feel not pretty enough, not smart enough, not nice enough and the list could go on and on.
These thoughts and feelings keep us stuck hiding.
They steal our joy.
We conform to what others expect of us as we lose touch with our self.
All of this makes me so sad!
But how to remove these masks? It can be hard to know what to do or how to reconnect to yourself.
I understand this challenge. Not only have I personally experienced this, but I have worked with my clients to support them to take off their masks and love their self.
Think about this …
What if your mask was removed and the world could see the real YOU?
Taking off my mask has impacted my life. And that’s why I’m honestly and vulnerably sharing these thoughts with you.
As a child, I felt that I lived most of the time being my true self.
But as I got older, I noticed myself putting on different masks depending on the situation. I would pretend to be someone I wasn’t. Or maybe I was trying to gain approval for what I was doing or wasn’t doing. And then there were the times that I allowed myself to be one way with certain people and then act another way with another group of friends. So exhausting!
All of this was about a lack of self-confidence, self-love and feeling not worthy to be ME.
Why was I hiding the real me? Wasn’t I good enough?
Okay, yes I knew I was good enough!
But did I really believe it?
I finally realized this was holding me back from living an authentic life in alignment with my heart’s desires.
After a lot of soul searching and doing the inner work, I now believe that I am good enough just as I am (and you are too!).
Taking off the mask has allowed me to be my best where …
I speak my truth … openly, honestly and with kindness
I genuinely believe that it’s okay to be me and that people like me
just as I am
I talk freely about my faith and not worry about what others might think
I show up as my true self independent of where I’m at or what’s going on around me
I relax about my imperfections and accept them
I live in alignment and integrity
The joy and peace that I feel now are incomparable.
I know that it’s okay to be just ME all the time.
Is it always easy? NO!
There are lots of times that I notice myself slipping into my old ways but I now have the awareness to know that this is happening. So, I pull myself up, regroup and refocus.
I can embrace this wonderful and messy life I have been blessed with … accepting the good and bad with a sense of love and wholeness.
So, I invite you to think about and write down the areas in your life where you are hiding?
What is holding you back?
Are you scared of how powerful you really are?
I can promise you that people will embrace you when you step into leading your life from a place of authenticity and being real. I encourage you to stop hiding behind your MASK. Get aligned with who you are, be open and live your dreams.
People are waiting to see the authentic YOU.
