Confessions From Your Fearless Leader

Confession Time: I feel lost, overwhelmed, and invisible today.

I’m behind on the stuff I am supposed to know how to do. I can’t figure out how to do the stuff I need to be doing to bring new clients and students into my business. The words won’t come, I’m missing deadlines, and I’m disconnected from people that matter to me and my business. The tornado in my head is swirling with such momentum that all I can do is sit and stare into nothingness. Every single twisted thought floating around within me is accompanied by an invisible friend who whispers and laughs, taunting me about how I’m the one who is supposed to teach the other Wildflowers that it doesn’t have to be this way. It says I’m done, I’m a fraud, and nobody would ever hire me for coaching or come to my class if they knew what a mess I really am.

Well, I call bullshit on that little voice in my head.

This is real. The Wildflower life isn’t always easy. We get overwhelmed because we have so many ideas, we care so much, and we love so completely. Sometimes we get turned upside down, and it takes love, lots and lots of love from other people and most importantly, from ourselves, to turn us upright again. Sometimes we give too much and have to pause to refill our own tanks. And sometimes, when a profound healing and evolution is underway, we feel like we are absolutely shattered. We feel lost or overwhelmed or invisible, but we are not. This is the beautiful and sometimes bumpy journey back to the truth of who we are. This is what it looks like to be Wild and true and free… to be me.

If this is your story, know that you are not alone. I shared this confession on my Wildflower Evolution page on Facebook and it cultivated more responses than anything I’ve ever shared there before. This is a sign of these magical times, a period of upheaval that follows a great awakening. Wild Ones are invested in the spirituality of awakening to the self. We are unfolding into this new way of being, releasing the old tools and language to make space for the new ways of functioning personally and professionally.

Fascinating and intriguing. Finding a ray of sunshine in a deep dark abyss of the mind often helps to pull us out and upwards even if this means falling downwards many a times before eventually struggling in the climb to the light, scrabbling out of the abyss. The darkness within the abyss may claim us once again but there are ways to escape from the oppressive and joyless darkness.

One here feels that this is merely "self congratulatory" b.s. along with "self serving" but then many men practice those qualities daily.

For many others, there are many fascinating and gentle ways to cope with all aspects of our lives.

I think it's harder being a woman. We think too much, have too many "projects" going on,loving, worrying,and of course, our emotions. It takes strength to do all this. Have a job, family, household chores, cook, cleaning, laundry, ironing. Gee, Fred L., do YOU do all this? or does a woman do it for you? You called the author an idiot and said to get a life. Did you ever change a diaper? take care of a sick loved one? Maybe you should look inward.....

Thank you Christy.

I had a moment like that the day before yesterday. Suddenly the thought of walking a marathon in less than two weeks just felt too crazy, too hard, too daunting. The silent waiting to hear about publication status of my first novel is long and lonely. Motivation to finish my second novel plummeted. Self doubt crept in and took hold.

But then I shook it off. And my second novel is almost finished.

Everyone gets days like those, and the more you stray from the conventional path, the deeper they can pull you down. But then the stronger your faith in yourself can grow as you shake it back off.

What a load of self-congratulatory, self-serving bullshit. Do something, anything, rather than looking inward all the time.

The unexamined life may not be worth living, but don't obsess about yourself. Get a life, idiot.

Hang in there, Christy!
