✌🏼 RECOGNISE HOW FAR YOU CAME ✌🏼

I'm assisting at a training half day this weekend so I received an email from the facilitator thanking the team. It brought up a memory that I haven't thought of years actually, want to share that with you ☺️

.

I was attending the same training 6 years ago. I remember this moment where we were doing shares. I was sitting at the back corner unlike now sitting in the front super keen and engaged 😃
.
So I got up, started sharing. Back then I used to speak quietly and fast, I had to repeat what I was saying all the time. As I was sharing, the facilitator couldn't hear me properly. He asked me to speak louder, so I did. Then he asked me to come to the front and share from there. I was like, 'Oh god what have I done in raising my hand..'. So I did, I walked all the way to the front, shared infront to the group, then thanked the facilitator telling him he's very loving and compassionate.
.
He said, 'So are you.' I wasn't expecting that answer, looked a bit confused. He looked at me with such presence, one of these moments where its just you and the person that everything else dissolves away. I started crying as I saw him as a mirror for the compassion and love I have for people..
.
Back then, I wasn't comfortable with crying infront of people unlike now speaking through my tears with a high pitch voice 😃 I was crying like I wanted to hide. I stepped back trying to hold my tears, holding my head down etc. He took my hand and said, 'When you cry, you step forward.', gently pulling me a bit forward while he stayed back. He asked,' Look into the eyes of these people. Do they look dangerous to you?' I looked up and half the room was literally crying. I said, 'No, they don't.'
.
Looking back at that memory, I feel grateful for all the growth, all the tears, all the learnings that brought me here.. I take such short time to learn something, apply it and turn it into habit that I forgot I was doing the opposite like 6 months ago 😃
.
If you're a speedy growth queen/king, ask yourself these questions to just recognise how far you came:
- What have changed in my life?
- What have I learnt?
- What do I do now that I wasn't doing 2 years ago?
- What story did I stop telling myself?
.
If you're inspired to share some of your answers, I'd love to hear them ☺️❤️

Have a beautiful weekend lovelies ✨

Loads of love! ❤️
