Listen. Because listening’s important:
Hi and welcome to the Re-Enchant Your Life reminder.
Your sacred pause in the day where you’re encouraged to take a moment to stop and tune into your inner wisdom and become present, so that you can reconnect to your personal power and confidently embrace who you’re becoming, as you Re-Enchant Your life and create the change you truly desire.
Today you’re being reminded to let it be easy.
We’ve often been told that hard work pays off, and that if something’s worth having, it’s worth working hard, sacrificing, and/or fighting for.
People value hard work and can show someone more respect and think they’re more deserving of their rewards and success if they’ve worked hard for it.
But what if allowing it to be easy was also an option.
How would you feel if allowing it to be easy gave you the same results as working really hard?
What if you allowed yourself to receive, ask for help, step into your own flow and find your own rhythms, rather than ploughing on when you really wanted to rest, or feeling that you need to prove that you deserved it by working hard for it?
How much of your identity and what you value is tied up in the idea of being deserving or working hard and being busy.
Working hard and being busy are definitely not wrong, they deserve to be valued. But have you considered that there could be an alternative too, or at least that there was a time for allowing more ease and not having to reduce yourself to exhaustion and burnout.
In this very moment, just pause and take a breath, as you consider alternative ways of doing things.
Today’s SHEro Action:
Today’s SHEro action is to notice your thoughts, feelings and judgements towards those people who you consider to work hard and those who appear to make things look easy.
Do you value the things you can do with ease as much as the things you work really hard for?
How do you feel about allowing things to be easy, do you think it’s possible or just fantasy thinking?
Pause, and take a breath. As you give yourself permission to consider the possibility of allowing things to be easy.
“I allow things to be easy”
I’ll see you tomorrow for your daily reminder to Re-Enchant Your Life with me, Rebecca-Anuwen,
In the meantime, enjoy letting things be easy on Your SHEro’s Journey!
I have to admit that I still need to consciously recognise the value of the things I can do with ease.
It’s easy for me to hold sacred space for people and groups, it’s easy for me to be creative and bring these ideas into reality, it’s easy for me to spot the patterns, it’s easy for me to trust and find joy in life.
I do it all the time.
But it’s so easy that I forget it’s not always easy for other people. And I can forget that it has benefit when I can show other people how to do it too.
So, as a result I forget to share what I can do with ease with others.
Yet it has value.
Just in the same way I’m a terrible baker. I make terrible cakes, I can make amazing raw-vegan desserts, but I can’t bake, and I’m always in awe of people that can!
Yet when I compliment others on their cakes, they often laugh at me and tell me ‘anyone can do it’.
Well I’m here to remind you that they can’t.
Not everyone can do what you can do.
Not everyone can do what comes to you with ease, whether it’s a natural gift, or a finely tuned skill.
Value what you can do with ease and allow that ease to flow into other areas of your life too.
