Recently someone had shared with me a story about their life changing in a split second! One decision, one chance taken and what went from going at life in one direction, then took their course into a route they were not anticipating. I was intrigued as I heard this person share their story and how their courage to move out of their comfort zone and make a decision changed life for them in a split second.
You know it requires just that, it will take courage in your journey of love and pursuing dating from your authentic self. The person who shared with me their story is someone who is very comfortable in their skin, a person of great integrity and someone who is willing to take risks. A self journey that didn’t happen over night, but the courage to become the person they currently are took time, took cultivating and diligence to prepare them to be the person they are now.
It’s this exact type of person that I encourage you to work towards. A lot of time singles think that things like working on self love, dealing with old hurts, becoming the best authentic version of themselves is a waste of time. But its cultivating yourself to become the person so that when the right opportunities arise, you’re ready to seize them. First and foremost you do those things out of a self respect and a love for yourself.
Many can’t even fathom that because they’re so wrapped in getting someone to love them, that the idea of taking the time to love themselves is last on the agenda. Sure there are some who will embrace this message, this journey, but its usually out of a heart posture to obtain something/someone as opposed to loving themselves for the sake of loving themselves. Not knowing that pursuing this type of a lifestyle sets them up to truly be ready to receive all that they desire.
Yes in a split second this persons course in life changed, but I can assure you they’ve spent years building and working to become the person who is courageous enough and ready to receive the things they deeply desire. Your choices now effect the opportunities that will come your way. Cultivating a self love prepares you to embrace the love that you do desire.
“But Arica, no matter how hard I try self love it seems so hard, so difficult, so foreign”, you may be saying. If I told you you weren’t the only one struggling what you say to that? I can assure you there are thousands who walk devoid of self love. Those who are waiting for that “split second” of chance, but have steered away clear from preparing themselves to be their real authentic self.
If you’re struggling with self love and being the real authentic you, go to my COACHING page and lets arrange some time for us to talk and help you become the person thats waiting to come out of hiding and ready to take advantage of those split second opportunities! My best to you on this journey of self love.
