SHOW UP!!! #showupforyourself
in your life.
What does it mean to show up in life?
For us, it means you arrive exactly as you are; #perfectlyimperfect
It doesn't mean being #somethingyourenot
. You don't have to "be" a certain way; you simply have to "be." It means #youstartfromwhereyouare
, and knowing that you can ( and will) change, #everymomentisanopportunitytolearn
It means that if you do nothing else today, #bepresentwithwhateveris
and allow yourself to evolve within the circumstances. You will then find whatever it is you need to be in that moment. You can #bestrong
, wise, #vulnerable
, loving, kind, forceful, compassionate, adventuresome, articulate, passionate and capable when you allow yourself to #justshowup
We can show up for others in the same way. We don't always have to have or know the "right thing" to say or do. We can just "be" with the other person, and allow them to show up, as well. When we #arrivewithoutexpectations
, and arrive #fullypresent
we allow things to unfold naturally and humanely. You are then able to "hold space" for another human being to be fully present and alive in the moment.
We are at once compassionate, present and real. We drop our barriers, our guards, our facades, and we experience life and ourselves fully open, without concern of how painful and raw life can be. We fully feel our feelings and validate them by experiencing them. It is unreasonable to think we can live our lives without pain, without emotion, and without being present. Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional, and the sooner we connect to our authentic self and show up, the sooner we can connect to joy and happiness.
