Whew what a week it was! So many amazing breakthroughs happening here! So much excitement yet with much excitement also comes ambivalence about the proverbial “unknown” and stepping things up a notch, up leveling ones game and braving through fears and frustrations.
Today, I found myself shedding “Cleansing Tears…”
No, they are not tears of sorrow, rather they are tears of celebration. I have reached a point in my business where I have stepped up my game considerably and looking back at the results I have generated for entrepreneurs who trusted me and invested their time and resources with me, I couldn’t hold back the tears from realizing that I have actually made a difference in their lives.
What’s even more moving for me is truly realizing the fact that my specialized skills and innate empathy for and encouragement of people is transferable and can be duplicated over and over and over again.
I look at the profound and meaningful relationships I have made in the past 2 years and I am humbled at the thought that some of my venerable mentors and heroes now even consider me as their peer and friend.
I well up with emotion to think of the struggles I went through, the sacrifices my family endured to support me to pursue my dreams and to get where I am today.
I get choked up in the knowing that because of my decision to step into my power and understand what I was truly worth, I am now able to support a few families, but being able to hire them and give them opportunities for exposure to my world of personal, mindset and spiritual development as well as business and marketing knowledge.
But most of all…
I cry happy tears in the realization that my husband and son are my number one fans! That they are so proud of me and my continued contribution to the lives of others…. It wasn’t long ago that they really didn’t understand what I do and didn’t really understand why I was spending precious resources in courses, mentors and seminars and many hours away from them.
Whether I cry tears of joy, fear, frustration, celebration, love, adoration, empathy, encouragement – to me those are cleansing tears. When I sob and have to grab a tissue and blow my nose, it signifies a big pause in preparation for big and better things to come. Yes, you can call me a “Hallmark” crier and that’s okay too.
When was the last time you shed Cleansing Tears? As long as you don’t take an extended period of time to wallow in it, I believe it’s great to experience them from time to time… it leaves a “clean slate” feeling where everything and anything is possible! (I am sure Psychologists will have some wonderful terminology for this) All I know is after a nice cry, I am:
Renewed… Refined and Refreshed.
Let me know when was the last time you had a great cry for a good reason and please share how that has helped you feeling renewed and refreshed!
Until We Connect…
