14 Feb You are NOT who your Mother thinks you are. . .

Here is what you need to know:  You are not who your mother thinks you are.

Yep, that’s right, even if it’s something good.

You are soooooooooooo much more than what she sees when she experiences you.  The truth is that sometime long ago, you expressed yourself without inhibition, and you did it in your mother’s (or father’s) presence.  She had a reaction to it, and you noticed her reaction.  Ever since, you’ve been living your life with careful consideration to never evoke that reaction again (even though you may not be aware of it).

I’ve seen it a million times in my office when I work with people.  When we grow up, we feel like something is missing and that is because something is missing.

We hold our breath and try to be good.  It doesn’t work.

Even if we end up “successful”, our bodies don’t lie.  The sciatica, the irritable bowel syndrome, the allergies, and the headaches all reveal to us the moment in which we chose to hold back, to doubt, and to pay more attention to the responses of other people, than to our creative magnificence that longs to come out and play.

Who would you be if you broke the unspoken rules that you were raised with?

Who would you be if you broke the unspoken rules that you were raised with?

What would happen if you double dipped the cracker?, if you wore white after labour day, if you said “are you f&%ing kidding me?” when you thought it, or if you stopped cleaning up other people’s messes?

This spring: Dare to find out.  Stay tuned . . .
