About 5 years ago, I had a “come to Jesus,” you know what I mean. This occurs when we wake up and confront the issues and obstacles plaguing us from enjoying our lives. I was in a corporate job that I no longer had a desire to do. I was unhappy, overweight. I was in turmoil. But I did something unconsciously. If I had of thought about it, I wouldn’t have done it because doing it would have removed the excuses that I had been using as to why I was where I was – sound familiar?
How many of you use excuses as an escape mechanism from facing the issues of your heart? It’s just easier to pretend as if they don’t exist…
I attended a life changing conference. I mean everything changed. It was cataclysmic, it was as if every single speaker was there for one reason – to facilitate my breakthrough. You see, I had been broken down. I was lonely, I hated my job, I felt like no one cared about me. Truthfully, it was all in my head. Just like it is in yours if you have had these feelings. As a dear friend says, when are you going to get out of your head and into your heart?!
I want you to know that a breakdown can and will become a breakthrough when you make a non-negotiable decision that enough is enough and decide to do something differently.
For me, the first step was attending the conference. How many of you know that if you want to change your situation, you have to change your position. That’s right MOVE. Do something different, something you’ve never done. While I was there, I was forced with looking at myself in the mirror – the proccess I now use with each client that I coach, which I have aptly called “Inspect the Incredible.” Sadly, what looked back at me was not cute in the least but what’s more, it wasn’t authentic. So busy trying to be everything to everybody, I lost myself and I realized that I was not living an authentic life. I was not living from my heart.
Once you know better, you are expected to do better, so I immediately began to make clear and calculated changes to my life. Oddly enough the first step was realizing that I was born Darnyelle for a reason and on purpose. I had to stop trying to be like everyone else so that I could fit in. That revelation – Life Changing. And that revelation led to another and another and another and finally to the commitment to help other women get to the same place where I now reside – Peace, Joy and True, Authentic happiness right now. Not later when my change, or the man or the money comes but NOW.
As a result of that conference I began to seek assistance in changing my life. I found a life coach. I made a commitment to becoming the best me. 5 years later, I am living from my heart and teaching others to do the same. It was a challenging process and yet it has been worth it. And no, it didn’t take me 5 years to do it! The bible says ‘Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” I operate fully from a space of love, personal power and conviction to greet each day ready to make a difference in the lives of others.
Now that I’ve told you my business (smile), I have a question for you: Where do you live? Are you suffering or struggling with lack, low self-esteem, worry, turmoil, strife or worse? When was the last time you smelled the aroma of your heart – your attitude? If you’ve smelled it, and a pleasant fragrance hasn’t greeted your nostrils, are you yet ready to make a change?
If nothing changes, nothing changes. But your address will change when you commit to yourself, do the work necessary to get a new address and live from your heart.
