Love the life you have and have the life you want

How to Stay in Compassion and Out of Obligation

Leave a comment

Recently, I’ve been struggling—or shall I say “dancing”—with this idea of how I can continue to “work on myself” and do it in a way that reflects my deepest belief that I am good just the way I am and there is nothing that needs to be fixed.

That sounds kind of paradoxical, doesn’t it?

How can I work on something without believing it needs to be fixed?

Sometimes being on a spiritual path can feel paradoxical … and even a little frustrating.

It can feel like I’m beating myself up all the time while trying out new tools and practices (which kind of defeats the purpose).

What I’m learning is that it is possible to expand ourselves and adopt new practices without beating ourselves up.

In this video, I’m going to share with you three questions we can use to see if what we are doing is coming from a place of love and compassion or from a place of judgment and obligation.

Expansion and growth don’t have to come from judgment and obligation. {Tweet that!}

Now, I’d love to hear from you.

How do you know that what you are doing is coming from a place of compassion or coming from a place of judgment?

I’d love to see what works best for you so please take a moment and share with us in the comments below this post. What you share might be just the thing someone else needs to hear today.

As we expand and grow into our deepest level of awareness, we can sometimes fall back into being critical and forcing ourselves to do things that just don’t serve us. So please pass this along to anyone in your life who you think might benefit from being reminded of how we can be loving and compassionate with ourselves while on this lifelong journey!

If you want more support in staying out of judgment and truly loving the life you have, I invite you to sign up for one of my complimentary discovery sessions and sign up to receive more tips, tricks, and updates directly to your inbox.

P.S. I’m getting giddy with excitement to tell you more about a program I will be launching soon that helps people learn how to stay out of judgment and begin to SOAR!

With gratitude…
