On Feeling Expansive

by Ashley on June 1, 2015 · 0 comments

For the past few years, I’ve been super deliberate about building my life around things that feel good.

It’s why I started Your Super Awesome Life back in 2012, why I quit my job in 2013, and why I added business coaching to my services in 2014.

It’s why I began running and trained for that first half-marathon. It’s why I stopped when it wasn’t fun anymore, and why I started again… and then ran 2 marathons.

It’s why I chose to date certain people and it’s why those relationships ended. It’s why I joined a year-long mastermind group and began working with a coach. And it’s why I started writing morning pages (which have totally changed my life, btw).

But lately, I’ve been struggling with this idea of “doing what feels good”.

Some parts of this life that I’ve created? They don’t feel so good anymore.

Some of the things that used to make me feel good have started feeling constricting. They feel forced and like I’m trying to be someone I’m not. Like I’m putting on a show for this invisible audience I’ve created in my head.

So I’m on a new mission.

I want to feel expansive. Light. Free. Inspired. Lit up. Magical.

This is what I know:

It starts by listening to my intuition.
It becomes a little stronger by writing my truth.
And it grows when I trust myself.

It starts by taking a good hard look at all the pieces in front of me and being honest about what’s working and what’s not. It starts by clearing away the clutter and keeping only the threads that are essential.

It’s about painting with all the colors and embracing the mess. It’s about getting dirty, coloring outside the lines, and being okay with imperfection. It’s about knowing there’s no wrong way to do it. That sometimes you’ve just gotta do you.

It’s about  knowing that sometimes the journey is more important than the destination. Knowing that the journey is where you find yourself. Because that’s where you peel back the layers and become the best version of you.

And that, my friend? That’s where the magic happens.
