30 Aug Why I got the word SURRENDER tattooed on my arm
I have been a control freak, people pleaser and someone scared of judgement for years and it has cost me “living” life to it’s fullest and I have had enough of that. Control and people pleasing are illusions and they are hurting your life too.
When we are children, there is a time when we know love, trust and possibilities.
Nothing feels out of reach
All we need and want is love and to be authentically loved.
And then life happens.
We get let down.
And we learn not to trust.
We decide things are too hard or not possible.
Our ego is born to to protect us and keep us safe and we feed our ego by staying rigid in beliefs and validating that we are “right”
CONTROL and limitations set in.
Stress takes over.
We create pain, inflammation, we age before our time.
What’s wrong with CONTROL? It’s not a real thing. You can’t ever really control things or people.
What’s wrong with limitations? They hold us back and keep us stuck.
What’s wrong with stress?
It creates inflammation and disease and physically ages us.
When I speak into “aging in reverse” it’s about SURRENDERING to who you were born to me. Loved, full of possibilities, trusting.
It’s when you get this- when you decide to surrender that the physical changes , financial changes and love truly appears
SURRENDER and start to age in reverse.
Aging in reverse is not about a physical appearance thing but your appearance changes because you do.
SURRENDER. I finally have after years of fighting. And I will remind myself to SURRENDER vs CONTROL now daily as it’s stamped on my arm for life.
I get you may not like tattoos. I did it for me not you. And that is part of me letting go of “people pleasing” and “fear of judgement” as well. Releasing those are also necessary to start to age in reverse.
