There’s something about this year for me, something strong that is inviting me, imploring me, pushing me, even daring me to SHOW UP.
2014 doesn’t feel like one of those years I can kick back with my feet up and just see what happens. This year is asking for much for than that. I could easily set SHOWING UP aside for next year, or the year after that… but the time when I push off big challenging life things for future years is long gone. There’s just no time for that. This year is asking me to get out of my box, get out of my comfort zone, and to be present in all of it.
I like what this year is asking of me, and by ‘like’ I mean that my eyes are extra wide and I’m a little (a lot) nervous.
SHOWING UP is a choice. It’s a bold choice. It takes guts. In my experience, SHOWING UP can be accompanied by feelings of self-doubt. Fear inspired self-doubt… the most annoying kind. Feeling like: Who do I think I am? Do I really have enough to offer? Do I have enough faith? Do I have the right words? Is there enough kindness in my heart? The answer is YES of course! I am everything I need to be. I am are enough. I am SHOWING UP! That’s it. And where I show weaknesses, God steps in and is like.. BOOM! Thank heaven for that.
