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.

There have been times in my life where I’ve been at a fork in the road. It hasn’t always been the most pleasant of destinations, unfortunately. For those of you who have been there, you can understand and relate to this.
The fork in the road is where crucial, life decisions are made; do I leave or do I stay in a job, a relationship, a city, or a home? I’ve always found them to be life altering IF you take one of the paths in front of you.
There have been times where I’ve sat at that fork in the road and chose not to make a decision, which is a decision in itself. When I look back now, I realize the decision, no matter how long I wanted to avoid making it, came either with my eventual choosing or with the force from the universe. One way or another, the intended road, whether you were ready for it or not comes and it’s not always in the form of gentleness. Sometimes I’ve been surprised by the level of vulnerability that it leaves me in. And then I realize that no matter when the decision was made, whether I made it for myself or not, it was indeed the path that was meant for me.
The path had lessons, sometimes years of lessons before I met up to that fork in the road once again. At times I’ve realized that I may have saved myself some additional heart ache, or experiences I would have preferred to avoid, and then the reality is, the time wasn’t right for me to make that choice, then. Nor did I have the strength to make that choice.
Here I am, today, knowing that all my choices have brought me to this space in my life – some of it amazing and some of it mediocre. Today, I realize that choices for a great life are always available.
I realize all those life lessons I should have learned from, but at times, I easily forget when caught up in the whirlwind of life. Everyday though, I marvel at the strength I have to continue my dream of being a business woman, and even though I’ve been tempted several times to get a job, I realize that my dreams die with this level of conformity.
Inside of me, I can hear the thumping of my heart, beating quietly for dreams I have accomplished, and dreams that remain on my vision board of life. Being a business woman is one that always remains and is forever engrained in my being. I wouldn’t trade one moment of this self-employment ride for a 9-5 job. I know in the end, when that fork in the road materializes – take a job to pay the bills or work harder at the business – the business woman in me will prevail. It’s a calling that excites me each and every day.
Schedule a chat with me, even if you aren’t quite ready to start your own business. Keep your passion alive by taking small steps towards its conception. You won’t regret it!
