Who Even Is She?
“There’s a woman I want to be and until I reach that point, I have work to do.” - I read this on a social media post yesterday and have been thinking about it since.
For the past few months I have been imagining a different version of myself. I am more confident, I dress differently, I travel around the world for work and I feel powerful. At first I thought, is this the Leo in me trying to break out, but the more I saw her I thought maybe this is a vision of who I am going to be. Who knows, but what I do know is it felt good when I envisioned her. After a while of seeing this new version of myself I coloured my hair. Bright copper is never something I thought I would like, but I had it when I saw myself so I thought “go for it", and I bloody love it! It already makes me feel more powerful and confident. Just by changing my hair colour I have already stepped in to feeling like this new me.
I hadn’t thought about it much after changing my hair as I’ve simply been enjoying the change, but after seeing that post yesterday I’m now feeling like there is so much more I need to do. Have you ever pictured yourself or your life differently? Then why have you not began making the changes or doing the work to get there? It doesn’t have to be a dream, if you want something all you have to do is work towards it and make it happen.
Last night when I went to bed I asked “Who even is she?”. I asked to be shown her again. As I entered the Dreamworld I saw her. The copper hair, beautiful skin and fantastic style. Alright, I have one out of three just now, so when I woke up I realised it’s time to achieve the next two. I have shocking fashion sense, but I guess it is pretty easy to dress differently and it’s easy enough to up my skincare routine. I’ve already been online looking at facials and treatments that I can start getting to help. And I know I can eat healthier and drink more water as my daily intake is shit! But none of this is outwith my control. I can make these things happen. Looking after my appearance more will boost my confidence and in turn I will begin to feel more powerful. I will feel good and I will feel strong. I will become this person.
I have no idea what I would be travelling around the world doing for work or when this would even be able to happen due to the fact that I have three young children at home and a husband who works away. But I know that it will happen. I feel it! I know it can’t happen right now, maybe I can build my business over the years to allow me to do it in the future. Or maybe it will be a completely different career that I will have when the time comes to travel. I do have really good feels about The Guidance Gal, so potentially it could be that. It’s a guessing game right now because I honestly have no idea!
We don’t have to have it all figured out, we just need to see that little glimpse of who we are and then begin taking the steps to get us there. Grab a pen and paper and ask yourself…
Who do I want to be?
What do I want to be doing?
How do I want to feel?
Now, what steps can I take to start moving towards this?
It might help to close your eyes and actually picture it in your mind. Sometimes you have to see it to believe it!
We have just had a New Moon, which means the energy is still in the air. This is a great time to set new intentions, work towards completing goals and manifest what you desire. You have your future self on paper, now do the work to bring them in to existence!
Don’t stress about it not happening quick enough, enjoy the process of creating this next version of you.
