I am not ashamed of my past; my past has shaped my future.
I have a passion for life and a need to serve other people. I never feel alone. I belong in this world. I surround myself with like-minded people. I have a support network.
Authenticity. Courage. Belonging. These are my rules.
I own my past and I use it as a source of empowerment for other people. It is this passion that drives me to a life of serving others. I surround myself with people I want to be surrounded by.
But it wasn’t always this way…
For many years I fed from other people’s shame and guilt and actively denied and hid my past. I served others and had a passion for life but not in the way I wanted. I wasn’t my authentic self. I surrounded myself with people who I felt would accept the me I pretended to be. I hid who I was. I denied my past at all costs. I didn’t own it. I was afraid people wouldn’t accept me for who I was. I was afraid to be who I really was.
I made a life changing decision…
I decided to own my past and use it as a source of empowerment . . . but not just for myself. I was no longer ashamed of it. My past had given me my future and so I saw it for what it really was – a great awakening. I decided not to hide anymore and to allow my genuine authentic self to blossom. The sexy, flirtatious, raunchy, (sometime controversial and taboo) confident me. The real me! I am not everyone’s cup of tea. I know that. But I claim it.
I decided to claim my position in the world – to have the courage to re-claim my own story and thus be of service to others.
My past is an awesome way to help me do this and really make a differece. It enables me to immerse myself in a community where I really belong . . . where I can help other people find their place in the world they want to belong to.
Now this is what I have…
A new passion for my life … I feel connected to who I am. I am not alone. I belong. I have discovered so much in such a short time not just about myself but about other people. It’s been an amazing journey.
I have a new business . . . where I know I can enable other people to have the courage to have an authentic life… an authentic business… to be who they are…
I can a bring an energy to other people’s lives by encouraging them to revitalise their own power into their lives just like me. I will help them join a community where they can feel safe and belong and supported in their individual journeys.
