Last weekend was one of the biggest weekends of the whole year for me. For months I'd spent many hours every week preparing, planning, coordinating, going to meetings, emailing, making dozens of hula hoops, dream catchers, labels, flyers, getting ready for my workshops.... all culminating into the momentous creation called Whole Earth Festival where I'd committed to be in charge of the Hoop Space all weekend, lead two Tapping workshops and perform with fire. I had it all planned out and was determined to be the most empowered and best version of myself all weekend long. Even though all my Whole Earth Festival responsibilities had overwhelmed me in the past, this year I was striving to be Wonder Woman.
Then, just a couple days before the festival I woke up with a sore throat and that super run down feeling. I panicked. This was the worst timing imaginable to be feeling this way and I was so afraid that all my hopes and dreams were on their way to being shattered.
And then I tapped on the fear.
I knew there had to be a lesson. There's always a big lesson attached to this kind of experience and when I started to slow down, breath and clear some of the fear, I realized that the lesson for me in that moment was to ask for support and then allow myself to receive it.
I had to remind myself that I don't have to do everything on my own. Over the years I've been creating a community of support and now was the time for me to allow others to actually support me when I needed it the most.
And so on Saturday morning, I showed up to my workshop even though I still wasn't feeling my best. And even though I was far from feeling like the most empowered version of myself I did what I could to share my knowledge and my gifts.
The healing happened.
Energy, negative feelings and belief systems shifted.
And afterwards the most important lesson landed in me.
*My best is always enough*
I want you to know that for yourself too:
Your best is always enough. Sometimes plans don't always happen the way we want them to. What you are capable of in any given moment is always shifting and yet no matter what's going on around you, if you show up and do your best good things will come.
you don't have to do it all alone.
it's okay to ask for help.
So I invite you to take a moment... tap on any of the points I've taught you and say to yourself:
I am enough.
I am supported.
I choose to love and support myself.
I am loved.
Now take a deep breath, exhaling with a sigh, and do whatever it takes to enjoy the rest of your day.
