It’s Okay to be Vulnerable

I think we are all vulnerable – especially to what scares us the most. Whether this be the potential for true love, a career that we would love to have or just to be ourselves, each and every day. It is our vulnerability that keeps us stuck, when our heart truly wants what is right in front of us. Often, we are too scared to reach out and grab it because it just seems too far or too unattainable or more succinct, we don’t believe we deserve it.

I’ve struggled with vulnerability my whole life, like many of you have. I still do on some days. Anyone who tells you otherwise, isn’t being authentic. It’s okay to be vulnerable. It’s what makes us humans. What you do with it makes all the difference in the world.

Be scared all you want. Keep all the fears you have. Be vulnerable. Don’t tell anyone. Stay the course or better yet, do something about it. Tell only one person that understands how you could possibly feel. Get out of that rut and live the life you were meant to live all these years. Invest in your life by taking action.

It’s all too easy to stay the course. Why should we change? Life has been ‘fine’. No great highs and no great lows. Everyday is the same. Why rock the boat?

We rock the boat so we can live our life to the fullest. It’s so much easier to just keep going on the path of least resistance than it is to reach out and say, I want that, or I want him or I want… We think life is easier if we keep the stress out and our vulnerability in but it doesn’t offer us the best life possible. We exist versus living. We survive rather than thrive and we settle versus fighting for what we truly desire in our hearts.

Take your vulnerability on a ride of a lifetime. Invest in yourself and in a coach that can get you from where you are and what you have to where you want to be and what you wish for. Life ends way too quickly for some, and those of us still here, must excel to live a vibrant journey chasing our dreams well others have been denied that extra time. Don’t waste it settling for that rut I call vulnerability.

Challenge Yourself!

If you’ve been keeping up with my blogs, you will remember that I wrote about whether or not one change in your life could make a difference. Here’s the latest news!

Oh my goodness! I’m thinking I have to change my answer to YES! One little change in your daily routine can change your life. You’ve got to try it!  I started off with:

Week 1 & 2 – ½ hour walk after a ½ meditation and grateful journal writing

Week 3 & 4 – I’ve moved up to a one hour with meditation and writing

The first day of week 5, I decided to tackle some stairs that I noticed as I was walking during week 3 & 4. This was my next challenge. Not only did I notice but I told someone I was going to do it. I obviously told the wrong person because he kept asking when the big day was. I think we call them our accountability partner. Yep, a pain in the butt brother really but nevertheless a long distance coach all the way from Manitoba.

Crazy right?

Here are some of the pictures just to show you how many I did.

I thought I was finished when I saw the bridge (81 stairs done). You know those kinds of stairs where it’s open and you can see everything underneath it and as you climb higher and higher your fear of heights kick in. Yep those are the ones! The ones you avoid always, always, always.

I’m looking at the bridge with a dozen more stairs. I look underneath and I’m thinking to myself ‘I can’t do this’. What if I fall, pass out, trip, or lose my phone no less. Then this quiet little voice says, ‘you got this Lucie’.

Yep, I did it! And guess what was on the other side? More bloomin’ stairs! This I was not anticipating. As I stood on the bridge and took a picture of Guelph, I thought about turning around and going back to where I came from. First of all, there were more stairs in front of me, but I also didn’t know where I was. I’m relatively new to Guelph and the street above the remainder of the stairs was unknown territory. Well it seemed to be a day of challenges so off I go to climb in total, 101 stairs.

I found my way home 10 minutes later to climb another 25 stairs to get into my condo.  I would have thought that I’m totally done in but the success of the challenge has me motivated to work, do more, accomplish more rather than flopping on the sofa. It’s a good thing I disconnected cable months ago because flicking on the TV would have been my next move.

Today’s challenge reminded me of my trip to Peru. It was the only vacation I took that I lost weight because of all the stair climbing we did. Everything was on a mountain – climbing was the only way you got there, especially when you got to Machu Picchu. Learn more about Peru here! 

    

As I’m writing this though, I decided to look up the definition of stairs – a set of steps leading from one floor to another – in this case for me, a set of steps leading from one accomplishment to another.  If you haven’t challenged yourself lately, try something new or follow me along on my walks. Just pick that one little thing that you’ve been thinking of doing for a long time, and set a date for tomorrow, and DO IT because you can!

Change One Thing

Like everyone else, there are days or months that I feel in a rut! You know – always doing the same thing everyday.  I feel like I’m coasting in life but no rollercoaster rides. Sometimes the ups and downs we can do without but sometimes they are needed just to remind us we are alive!

I’ve read many books over the years, and listened to many motivational speakers. I hear them often say, if you want to change your life, change ONE thing you do every day. It’s a kickstart into wanting to climb out of that rut. That sounds like work

I decided to test that silly thought that I could get a different life with changing just one thing! They aren’t exactly correct.

Changing one thing in my everyday routine hasn’t changed my life per se but it has given me a different perspective.

It has allowed for more creativity as in, what am I going to change next. Now I’m not talking about a total revamp of everything (I did that over 2 years ago) but I’m talking about getting up ½ hour earlier to do something extra for your self.

For those of you that think getting up ½ hour earlier than you normally do isn’t going to happen you should book a Discovery Session with me. Being self employed and being your own boss allows you to live the life you want, set that alarm clock or not and choose your daily schedule of work or play.

Changing that one thing has made me realize that my life could be different; that I could accomplish whatever I want; spend the day with a friend, or lie in bed longer with my love – whatever I decide, it’s all good. It’s a small start to wanting my life to be different. No huge heroic effort is needed here. I’m happy because with huge effort, sometimes comes disappointment that I’ve taken on something bigger than I’m capable of mastering. The smaller change of one thing in my daily routine has helped begin the journey to a different life:  One that I am the master of.

Try it for yourself and you will see what I mean.

Here is what I’ve done. I naturally wake up at 0600 hours – meditate and write in a journal of all the people and things in life that I’m grateful for. I’ve always done this – well, for years anyways. Lately I decided to challenge my fitness level – or lack thereof. I walk by 0700 hours. I started with ½ hour and now 2 weeks later, I’m at one hour of walking BEFORE I do any work or talk to anyone or look at any electronic device.  Due to this small change, I actually do feel better and I’m able to focus on getting that work done, with lots of energy left over to do what my heart desires, outside of work.

So, maybe my life has changed because of that one thing!

Schedule a chat with me, even if you aren’t quite ready to create a complete transformation, I can help you change just one thing! Book a discovery session with me!
