And what have you learned since then?
How as your life changed?
And what message do you have for the woman you were 10 years ago?
I did this challenge for my instagram stories, a while ago.
Here’s what I wrote:
“Ten years ago. That’s when we moved to Alcochete. At the time I didn’t have my online business, didn’t now what I wanted to do about my life. Knew very little about mindset!
Now I know what I want to work on, I love what I do every day. I know a lot about mindset and it helped me to navigate all this virus situation!
On the outside, everything seems the same. Inside: totally different 🧡
I know where I’m going. My msg to me, 10 years ago: Everything is going to be ok! And the best is yet to come 😘😘😘”
When I was a kid, I thought about being a writer.
Ideas I had of works I loved: writing, dancing, designing clothes. I eliminated them all, one by one. Can’t do it, too hard, won’t earn enough. Impossible to do in Portugal.
I loved doing this exercise cause it helped me understand how much I changed.
I started seeing the pictures from 10 years ago (easier to remember that way 😜) and I thought… well, nothing changed much! I’m living in the same place. I’m married to the same man. I have the same friends. Still going to vacation at the same places!
And I felt also a longing for those times when my kids were little and we had so much fun together.
But then I thought about my state of mind at the time. How I had started an image consulting company (with 3 friends) but without having too much faith in it. Thinking it would be hard to be successful. “Not enough clients, not enough people interested in this. We aren’t putting in enough work. We don’t know how to do it.”
I wish I knew then what I know now 😊
The difference is at the time, I believed all these stories. Now I know they are just stories, trying to stop me from having the success I can have.
The stories are stil there, they come from time to time. It’s normal, we are human, we have an ego and it won’t go away. We need it also. So the ego isn’t the enemy. But lack of awareness is. Beliving the stories is…
I was also making decisions out of fear. Trying to think things through. Not connected to my intuition. Creating the same patterns, over and over again. Not knowing that “life was happening FOR me”.
But I digress!
I’d love to know what came up for you!
And what’s the message you have for the woman you were, 10 years ago 🧡
Lots of love,
