Navigating earth life can be a very challenging proposition.
There's lots to be aware of physically, mentally, emotionally...and...keep in balance if we are to sustain our health and well-being.
Now imagine that on some level we choose to add another layer of concern and "self-appointed" responsibility to our list of things to manage...
the PRESSURE OF KEEPING OTHER PEOPLE HAPPY
and THE PAIN OF SUFFERING when they don't land in that "satisfying-to-us" space.
I am speaking of co-dependency...an emotional state which seems indigenous to earth dwellers because it is so widely experienced by us.
CODEPENDENCY layers our life with emotional and corresponding physical fatigue because the work of keeping everyone happy is NOT OUR JOB but we have somehow missed that message and are trying to squeeze 96 hours of effort (a conservative estimate) into 24!
No wonder we are so exhausted and beside ourselves.
No wonder we can be so easily agitated and stressed.
We are fettered...we have chained OUR happiness to the impossible-to-control happiness of others and when they are not OK, we are not OK, either.
It all comes down to needing someone else to give us their stamp of approval.
We want everyone to "get" us...
to understand us...
to see it our way.
But we don't NEED them to do this (even though it feels like it) because WE can make that assessment for OURSELVES.
We don't need a team of consultants, a task force, a VIP to endorse the way we are because WE are the VIP and we have somehow failed to recognize this.
Did we miss our job description? Did we miss the fine print?
Not to worry...because that's what earth life is all about...
REMEMBERING that "WE GOT THIS".
And, when we do remember, it is GLO RI OUS...
it is FREE ING...it is let-out-of-jail BEA U TI FUL!
We have a masterful assignment in just taking care of us and the fact is everybody has that assignment...so let's not mess with the plan.
We can all co-exist taking care of ourselves...speaking OUR truth... and also listening to OTHERS' truth.
And it is OK if we don't see things the same way...it is actually interesting and exciting as long as we know that we have the right and responsibility and the innate know-how to make our own decisions AND change them whenever we've learned a new way to do things and want to give it a try.
We do not need other people's endorsements and they don't need ours.
Let's Blow Open the Door we've been stuck behind and let a fresh, authentic vibration power its way into our lives...
the awareness and satisfaction of knowing WE are in charge of our happiness and our own decisions.
