"Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life."
There’s much in the personal development space about this concept…about the fact that our dream lives are ours to create...about the fact that anything is possible...about hustling, about shining bright, about getting after it, about believing...and about doing all of the other things we see made into nice inspirational quotes, written in calligraphy.
I believe that so much is possible. I believe that changing our thinking and the way we view the world can have a massive impact on how we feel each day. I believe we can create from everything. *And,* I believe that sometimes, in these spaces of motivation and personal development and anything is possible and your dreams are yours to achieve that we sometimes neglect to talk about some of the harder, more complicated parts of this equation. Like the fact that in many ways, even being able to have these conversations and think about these things are privileges themselves.
What can it look like to hold both?
The possibility, and also the reality of what is happening around us?
The invitation to manifest, alongside a commitment to action?
Being positive and optimistic, while not turning a blind eye to the things that are deeply painful in our country and our world right now?
These are questions that don't have quick and easy answers...questions that I feel committed to examining and exploring and that I’ve been leaning into.
What do you think?
