Grow where you are planted
Someone once said “Grow where you are planted” and those words really resonated with me.
The best way to approach life is to be open to receiving and to treat everyone you meet with love in your heart.
Fearless Mommies really came out of no where… the only thing I can say is that it came about because I was open to explore my authentic self. It all started when I met up with Cori, a Life/HR Coach whom I met years ago. I was not in a good space at the time and I spent the entire time at her office crying my eyes out. I don’t cry easily. I was crying because I wanted more out of life… I spent so much time working so hard to accomplish everything I had up to this date. I had a career as a software developer, have a loving husband, three beautiful children, a dog and a beautiful home close to nature. Sounds great, huh? So why was I crying? I had just returned to work after a maternity leave and I felt empty and stuck. I brought these beautiful children (souls) into this world so that I could spend time with them, nurture them, support them and grow with them. I realized everything I truly valued in my life, I didn’t have time to give because I was so busy doing something that really gave me nothing aside from a false sense of security. I didn’t even really like the job I had, I just did it because it paid the bills.
Now I’ve always been a very spiritual person and I’ve always naturally helped others with words throughout my life. Because of that, I decided to go see Cori because I was interested in a coaching career. To make a super long story short, she suggested I meet up with Aileen, one of her clients. At the same time, a long time friend of mine, Suzette, reappeared after not connecting for a couple of years and had mentioned that I should speak to the same Aileen. Now my friend and the coach do not know each other, nor did I say anything for them to prompt that suggestion, so for that to happen I knew that was a miracle and I had to meet Aileen. Aileen then invited me to Spark Excellence, which is where the idea of Fearless Mommies first popped into my mind. I have been following my heart since. I’ve been working on A Course in Miracles and realizing that every day is a series of miracles. I’m currently in the creative process of Fearless Mommies to build the website up. I have many plans for Fearless Mommies, I stay open to receiving the ideas… and it is taking me places I never thought of before.
So this is what I have to say to you as you ‘grow where you are planted’. Stay open to possibilities, treat every person you meet as a miracle as you never know why you met them… could be something they say to you or something you say to them, just be kind and loving. Doors will open up if you trust the miracles in life. You are perfect where you are, right now at this moment. You may not see the big picture but take each day seeing the miracles life presents you and watch how miracles unfold for you to live a life of authenticity.
I have to say that I feel very abundant in life now. I no longer have the full time job so I should be scared right? I’m not because the big dude/dudette up there is looking after me. That’s not to say I’m going to sit on my butt and trust I’ll be taken care of. The miracles are presented to us but it’s up to us to take the first step in to receive it. There will be a day when you can sit on your butt and do nothing if that’s what you wanted 🙂 but I also believe when that day comes, there will be so much more happiness and fullness in your life, those moments you sit around doing nothing will be sacred and full of gratitude.
I’m sending out my love to all of you. Hoping you start looking for the little miracles in life and be grateful for them. Please feel free to comment below.
Keep loving and learning and making a difference, however big or small!
