Super Sour Lemons!
I’m back, and I have a special gift for you!
You might ask, “Where have you been Dawnmarie?”
To which I would respond, “On a magical journey and lesson!”
I recently suffered a back injury that had me in serious pain, unable to walk, stand or sit for more than a minute. I was in such pain that I was not able to hold many of my client sessions. It was taking so long to heal that I began to fear this becoming the normal way of things.
That was in mid-June, and I am just now getting back to normal. I felt like life had dropped a giant bag of Super Sour Lemons upon my head. I wondered how I was going to handle it all. I was unable to do everyday things like dishes, take out the trash, get down the 3 steps from the house, or take care of my dog.
I like to be independent, but it was very clear; for the time being… I was not.
I knew with certainty that during this challenging time, my attitude, and the movie that was going on in my head, were creating my next reality. I needed to make sure it was positive. I did not have the luxury of indulging in self-pity, negativity, and a losing story of defeat! I had some choices to make, my future depended on that.
I utilized my own coaching techniques; the same ones I use with my clients. I chose to see that there were lessons involved in what was happening, and I healed some deep wounds while this was going on.
I was also wise with the down time. I reevaluated and gained clarity on some of my priorities by completing the “My Priority Worksheet”
I realized I, myself, was not high enough on the list of priorities. I thought I was, but in reality, I was nowhere near the top.
This is what I decided:
I was worthy of getting assistance for my needs. I hired someone to come do the cooking, cleaning, etc. I also employed the services of massage therapy, chiropractic’s, a naturopathic practitioner, an acupuncturist, Reiki practitioner , an energy coach, and several others.
I would turn self-pity into self loving compassion.
Business could take a back seat for a while. It would be there when I was ready. It was OK for me to take an extended break. I just needed to make sure my motives and mindset were supportive; that I was not running or backing down due to sub-conscious fears.
I needed to start being creative again, so I am having a beautiful "She Shed" built, which is to be my crafting, painting, and music room. It's almost finished!
Instead of seeking the blessing in all situations, I took ownership of what I wanted and I created the blessing.
Feeling supported by others, and most importantly... by myself.
Healing my spiritual, emotional, and physical self.
Taking action on a desire I'd had for a long time; the "She Shed" Crafting Room.
Being more open to receive.
So many times, we give our power away when we need to stand on it instead. This could have been a very devastating situation for me if I had chosen to see it that way. Instead I used it to empower my life.
What troubling situations are happening in your life?
How are you choosing to see yourself and your circumstances?
Are you playing small, being a victim, or creating the next painful experience for yourself?
You don’t have to!
My Mindset Mastery Class and Private Sessions can help you stop growing many of your lemons in the first place. A lot of them are self-generated; a mass production from the factory of your mind. Yes, some of them are unavoidable, just circumstances from life, but they can transform and shape you into stronger more useful beings if you choose to let them.
Here’s what one of my clients has to say about what my Mindset Mastery Programs and Private Sessions and done for her life and career.
I started sessions with Dawnmarie five-and-a-half years ago. I was making about 30k a year, at a 9-5 job working for someone else. I had low self-esteem, was in an abusive relationship, completely lost, and 1 month pregnant. I had no idea what I was going to do with my life.
Over the last five years, I've learned to forgive myself, to love myself, and I am now in the driver's seat consciously creating a life that I love.
Today, as a result of investing in myself through classes and private sessions with Dawnmarie, I make well over 100k a year... working for myself, running a business that I love. I am in an incredible and healthy relationship with someone who loves not only me, but my beautiful daughter as well. It's also made me a wonderfully engaged and conscious mom.
My advice... Don't hesitate to call her. She's the best thing that ever happened to me. Jump in. Be vulnerable. You're worth it too!
Thank you Dawnmarie!
