No one is coming to save you.
Who needed to hear that today??
It might seem kind of aggressive for me to write that to you, but I feel passionately that YOU needed to hear it, feel it, and absorb it today.
What does this mean, you may be asking?
Welp, this means that you and you alone my love, are responsible for everything you have, everything you’ve done and everything you will achieve in the future.
So, while it may seem like a shitty thought at first glance, it’s really empowering!
(And as you know, we do empowering all day every day so we know what’s up)
No matter where you are right now in your life, you got yourself here which means you have skills and talents that you probably aren’t even aware of.
Heck, maybe you’re a rock star at fucking up your life! Haha, seriously though, maybe you consistently make colossal mistakes regularly that have gotten you here. (…ask us how we know about these!)
More importantly, I want you to realize that you also have the power to create a life you love and are proud of!!
Disney has screwed us little girls over, over and over again, with pretty tales of prince’s coming to save us. But ummm, that is NOT happening any time soon. What we should be seeing more of (I know we’re seeing somewhat more of this, but it’s not enough) are tales of us rescuing our fucking selves!!!
Don’t like your job? Leave! Don’t like where you live? Move! Don’t like how your dad makes you feel every day? Stop talking to him for a bit. Always wanted to go to Hawaii? Save for it! Always wanted a college degree? Take a class next semester!
Sounds easy right? It’s not but it sure is simple: stop doing the behaviors or making the choices that keep you stuck, and start thinking instead of what you have always desired and begin making conscious choices that support that.
No one knows this better than me. I figured out in my mid 20’s that if I wanted a better life, I had to do better shit. I had to make better choices and stop sabotaging myself.
This is where the thought that no one was coming to save me, really propelled me off my ass and got me moving towards my goals and the future I had always envisioned for myself.
What are you doing right now that is feeling like you’re waiting for your life to change for you? Or for someone to come along and save you?
We get it, no judgement over here! Instead, we’d like to offer that just as you can make decisions that aren’t serving you, you can just as easily make better ones by asking yourself, does this choice move more towards my goal or away from it??
And as always, we’ve got you when you’re ready to dive deep and get a real plan together for your life and your dreams. Our EC coaches are the bomb at this shit, and we can help you do just that.
