Do you ever feel so disappointed that you aren't sure if you can keep moving forward on your journey? If so, you are not alone.
My disappointment used to take me out for days, even weeks.
I used to let disappointment mean that "it" was never going to happen for me and that I was an idiot to have faith. Pretty ruthless, right?
While disappointment is a legit feeling, the problem lies in letting it cloud your judgment and thus, dictate your future.
Rehashing, reliving, and making past (and present) disappointments your highest authority will keep you trapped.
It will put unnecessary obstacles between you and what you desire.
Isn't it time to demand more for yourself?
When you feel disappointed, grab a piece of paper and do this:
- Acknowledge the disappointment. Write about what caused it. Be specific and detailed. Leave nothing out. Exorcise it!
- Ask for guidance. Connect to your personal spiritual principles. We create so much drama for ourselves by thinking that we have to do all of this by ourselves! There is a power greater than any of us. Tap into what that means for you. Let it flow through what you write. Be available for the guidance that shows up. Regardless of how things might look right now, The Universe is conspiring in your favor, BUT you must be open to seeing it.
- Get more fierce than ever about your desires. The mistake most people make when disappointment shows up is to shrink and retreat. Stop it! The desire in your heart to be a Mama is there for a reason! It's meant for you. Dig your heels into that, not fear, lack and scarcity. Write about how excited you are to be a Mama. Lovingly and wisely write about the smart lessons you will take from the disappointment and how you will use them to your advantage.
When you follow this 3-step process, with an open heart and zero patience for staying stuck, watch what happens...it is nothing short of ah-mazing.
See disappointment a wisdom-rich pit-stop, not the destination.
My ladies don't do "disappointment drama."
They refuse to equate disappointment with defeat; they let it fuel the fire of their dreams and light the way to their inevitable success. Yes, inevitable.
Decide you will be one of them.
Change your mindset, change your results.
Intrigued? Here's an exercise to take this to the next level...
Do the exercise outlined above.
Even if you are not currently in a place of disappointment. Use the above exercise to make peace with past disappointments.
Let this process re-energize you and reinvigorate your commitment to the FACT that you will be a Mama. Be bold! Women who are, become the Mama they were meant to be. Why not you?
Stretch yourself! It's about progress, not perfection!
