Wisdom from Meredith Grey
“…It’s something you survived, because you are the opposite of that. You have an enormous will, an enormous heart, an enormous capacity for survival. You’ve taken all this darkness and used it to help other people who are walking through the same…You’ve taken your darkest experiences that life gave you and you turned it around and turned it into light.”
You know how sometimes you hear the right thing exactly when you need to hear it? That was me last week catching up on the recent episode of Grey’s Anatomy (yes I still watch it, judge away). I felt like Meredith was giving this passionate pep talk to me, and I immediately starting bawling.
Some of you may remember that I felt at a bit of a crossroads recently. I desired just like getting a normal job and fading from social media. I felt tired of fighting for all the bigness I had pursued as long as I could remember. I questioned why I even wanted to pursue the path I’m on since it seemed to boil down to needing validation from the one person I’d never be able to get it from.
What then, is my actual why?
I realized though, that I am teetering on the edge of something huge. I feel like I have reached the tipping point of my career, and it will get insane from here on out. I needed to stop and take a beat before I continued. I needed to pause and decide if this is truly what I want, because if I keep going– there will be no turning back.
I had to get okay with that.
Luckily I am surrounded by the actual best people ever. My clients, my tribe of women, my Rebel Babe community, my followers on Instagram, my amazing husband. So many of you email me and remind me why I am doing this. I’ve had so many enlightening conversations over the last month or so and it has just solidified I am where I need to be. That Meredith Grey pep talk simply was the final nail in the coffin that held my doubts.
And now that I have made a decision, rather than feel as though I have no control over why I do what I do– I feel at peace. I feel so much more positive about where I’m at. I’m thinking in abundance rather than scarcity. I am straight thrilled with life right now. I’ve made some decisions and refocused. I’m excited for the future.
The only thing that has changed is my perspective & my mindset. I know why I am here. I am here to spread light.
And that is exactly what I am going to do.
