I finished dinner tonight with a very good friend. A soulful and authentic friend who sparked something in me.
She showed me what BELIEF does to people. Hope, encouragement and love.
I have had a couple of weeks of feeling discouraged, overwhelmed and I began to question the journey. My whole heart wasn’t in it.
She looked at me tonight and said, “Marian, I believe there is something greater about The Zen Bird than you may even know. I truly feel this is important that you do this, you continue, you evolve. You are exactly where you are meant to be.”
She believed in me. In that moment in a time when I needed someone to step in for a second and prop me up, she showed me the hope.
Think back to when you were a kid. Did you have a parent or role model who BELIEVED in you? A coach, a dad, a grandpa, a teacher, a nanny? Did they see something greater in you than you could at that moment?
Do you know what it feels like to have someone believe in you?
Do you know what it feels like to believe in YOURSELF?
It’s a POWERFUL feeling. I tell you this from the most honest place in me. Belief can get us through the depths of horrible situations. Hope can overcome the darkest of days. Faith will bring us through.
Our support systems are crucial and even more so, our OWN individual support systems can make or BREAK us.
Our own belief systems can truly bring us hope, or it can crush us.
This is why I teach workshops on self love, worthiness, and empowerment. THIS is why I care about helping others develop the skills, tools and habits that can TRANSFORM their world.
I believe in myself most moments of every day, but there are few days when I need a bit of a push.
I then look to my support system. My tool box. My skills. My coping mechanisms. Do you have them? How does your tool box look today?
How beautiful would it be to be your own support system 99% of the time? To feel SO empowered that your belief, your hope and your inspiration brought you through.
How? By learning the skills to build your belief, build your hope and transform your world from the INSIDE out.
Find your tribe, find yourself, find your belief system. And when you do find those people who help you when you don’t have it in you, please tell them how much you love them. Give them a big squeeze and appreciate them with your entire being. They are dropped in your path exactly when you need it most. For right now, this is exactly where you are meant to be.
