I was reading an article by Gordon Tredgold related to fears in business and life. The amazing article (which can be found here) ended with a question. I decided to answer the question quickly, without thinking at all about it. I just jotted down the list. First I got a list of the bolded words below. Then I went back and added one sentence to each item. This is what I got. I think I need to speak with my therapist 😉 !!
The question is: Which fears impact you and your business the most?
The fear of being real
who am i to know what to do
of being discovered
who am i to have a say
who am i to deserve to know
will i see a return on my investment
of answering to a higher authority
what will happen if I don’t succeed
of creating something from nothing
is there really something here that nobody else yet discovered?
of loving something i cannot have
how can i want it, if i want it so much
of working for nothing
will this make any difference to anybody?
of selling myself short
my life’s a waste, no one appreciates me, it’s not worth it.
of being an imposter
they think i know what i’m talking about
of returning to dust
Our time together has been stale
Musty with smells of yesterday
I agree that it’s been less than optimal for both of us,
Our time together,
Which can also be called
Our time apart.
For until we are done cleaning house
We will be experiencing the pains of growth
And the burden of our past lives
weighing down on us,
pushing us towards our destiny
I can’t even imagine what togetherness would look like.
Frozen in time now.
Good Morning! I am so happy to have this opportunity to communicate with you. Today I wanted to talk about the morning pages. I know that you feel that it’s not going to figure into your recovery the way that therapy does or a 12 Step Program does. You may not ever use these morning pages to write a book or to get your artist out. However, you will use them to become the best you possible. To spill the brain onto the page and to let it go is so important! I know that you are just at the beginning of your journey into a great big unknown where you will need as much courage as you can get. If you take 15 minutes to get your morning pages done, I am sure that you will see a big difference in your day. Your happiness level will change. These pages are yours alone and are the product of your mind and soul. Nothing will be produced in its equivalence.
Do it! I support you!
Your greatest fan ~ Inner Nurturer
I see you. I just wanted to say. I see you.
Sometimes it seems like I am so busy and disinterested, as if I am this all important executive who does not have time to notice you. Maybe I am very important. But the first person I am important to is YOU. I exist because of you, for your sake and within you. There is no separate reality that I contain or maintain. We are one.
Therefore, even though I often forget to look at you and I often forget to see your sweet features and daily activities – I want you to know that I am committed to noticing you more. You are my purpose here and you are my celebrity and my fantasy. I only have eyes for you.
When you wake up, I’m excited. When you get dressed in the morning, I’m delighted. When you put one foot in front of the other and step into the lion’s den every day to see how hungry he is (is that a terrible analogy?!?! One day I’ll stop this negativity!!) I am right there with you, rooting for you and painting a picture of wholeness and beauty. I want your day to go swell. I want your life to be peaceful. I am there with you all day long and each time I stop to see you and notice you, I will set the intention to make it a peaceful day.
I love you and I am with you always.
Love, Inner Sarah
I don’t want to be afraid of you.
I don’t want you to be afraid of me.
Let’s erase fear. Let’s embrace fair.
I am willing to work towards this goal. I cannot live in fear anymore.
Our frantic scrambles to patch up your problems cause me too much trouble to be worth the temporary high I get out of saving the day.
I choose tranquility and serenity. I hope you adjust ok to my new space. If not, it doesn’t matter. I am going to get there anyway, despite or because of your frenzy.
I am too precious to be forgotten. My essence is love and joy. Not anger and bitterness. Whatever it takes, I’m going for inner peace.
for the life of me
I can’t figure out if the person
who’s driving me
is a literal
Is she encased in ice?
Or is she alive,
heart beating and loving?
I know that
and live woman
When I am still
I can sense
which one is driving
A ride with a cadaver
can be a heady experience
though I’d prefer a ride
with a living me
I’m going to love them both –
these two who
grace my bones
and allow me to
interpret their secrets
and tell their stories
