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 that you do make a difference.
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when you’re faced with challenges in your own life.
It’s even easier to think you can’t make a difference when you look further afield and look at what’s going on around you, in your own community, your country and the world.
Yet even the smallest actions can make a difference.
You will never know how many people, and the choices they then go on to make, are impacted by the ripples of your actions.
A smile, a kind word, genuine interest in someone, a warm gesture, a favour.
A donation in time, action or resources, or amplifying someone else’s effort.
Speaking your truth even if your knees are knocking with nerves.
Standing up for, or with, another.
You never know who you will inspire to do the same.
Even when you know that you can’t possibly save the world, although I wouldn’t want to limit you!, you can, and you do, make a difference.
And when everyone makes even the smallest of differences, you not only change lives, the ripple effects of those actions can, and will, change the world.
In this very moment, just pause and take a breath, as you recognise your own significance.
Today’s SHEro Action:
Today’s SHEro action is to do something that will impact the life of another.
Maybe you can offer some support to a friend, surprise someone with a thoughtful gesture, a hand-written card.
Donate to your favourite charity, amplify a voice or the work of someone you believe in.
The size of your action is less important than your intention to spread your support in the world.
Pause, and take a breath. As you allow yourself to feel the significance of your actions.
“My actions matter, and I use them with clear focus”
I’ll see you tomorrow for your daily reminder to Re-Enchant Your Life with me, Rebecca-Anuwen,
In the meantime, enjoy making a difference as you walk Your SHEro’s Journey!
I once saw something in an article, I can’t remember the article, but I can remember the words, and they were ‘separate how you feel from what you do’.
And those words really struck me.
Of course, we’re allowed to feel our feelings, it’s important to acknowledge them rather than suppress them, but we can still choose to take action.
For example the famous book with the title ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’, you may be afraid to try something, but you can separate the feeling from the action you want to take, and still take the action. You can take the action even if your heart is in your mouth or your knees are knocking.
You may feel overwhelmed, but you can choose what action you’re going to take to move you closer to clarity.
You may feel that your actions don’t or won’t make a difference, and you can still choose to take action anyway.
In truth, you may never know the full extent of the difference you really do make, and you can still take action anyway.
