The Whole Person Blog: Week Nine, Day Seven, Part 2/2 - Saturday Summary
Daring Classrooms Saturday, February 29th, 2020
It was a blast re-reading and writing about The Gifts of Imperfection. Brene is my spirit animal, for sure. Her book helped me revisit and review areas of my life that I've not yet allowed the FLOW to prevail fully, and for that alone, I am grateful. I'm confident my path will cross with Brene's, and that will be good for both of us :-)
The Whole Person Project is going amazingly well. I'm getting one note after the other, stating: "I'm getting it, I'm seeing the light, I'm connecting the dots, I'm good enough, I'm a YES." I was not prepared for the amount of healing and transforming that's occurring in this course. It's been an emotional ride for all parties involved.
After deliberation, I've decided to switch my blog format from book-inspired back to client-inspired. I'm enjoying writing based upon books, and it's a demand that I cannot sustain at this time. In addition, I'm reducing my writing from daily to once weekly. This has been a suggestion from many of my readers, who have also become friends, and will create space for me to write the book I've wanted to write, to kick off The MindBodySpirit Coaching School in 2021, and continue creating online programs that help others heal from the inside-out. My weekly blog will be released be on Sundays and will resume next Sunday, March 8th. Don't be surprised to receive an occasional inspiration from me here and there. Thank you for your support and understanding.

When you tell yourself you have to change, it's inherently a statement of self-rejection. It's saying that who, what, and where you are is not good enough. It's why change is often perceived as an obligation, something you feel you have to do in order to get where you want to be. It's burdensome because its premise is that you're incomplete, needing to become whole. The alternative perspective, the one that feels like an opportunity, something you get to do, begins by viewing yourself as a Whole Person, only needing to surrender that which no longer serves you.
"Nobody ever talks about this part...You know, the part where you're no longer a caterpillar and not yet a butterfly. You don't know who you are and you don't know where you're going. All you know is that every fiber of your being is calling for transformation. For disruption. For a revolution of the Spirit. So surrender. Breakdown. This is not the death of you. This is the dying of who you once were. This is your rebirth, darling. And these are called growing pains."
