I’ve been thinking lately about the idea of wholeness… in part because of a book I started reading (“The Soul of Money”) and in part because of this quote, “We’re all broken; that’s how the light gets in.”
I used to love that quote… back when I believed I was broken.
Now it doesn’t sit well with me.
It doesn’t serve me to believe I’m broken.
So, here’s what I choose to believe instead…
That we are all whole.
That not even one person is broken.
That the light doesn’t need to get in… because it is always already WITHIN.
And we don’t need to be broken for the light to get out, either.
The more connected we are to ourselves, the brighter the light just GLOWS.
From the INSIDE out.
It lights us up and has us experiencing our lives more and more with that sense of wholeness that we ALREADY are.
As the light glows brighter, it is naturally shared with others.
Feeling broken doesn’t mean we are actually broken. It simply means we aren’t connected to the wholeness that we already are.
You are worthy and whole, no matter what my friend.
NO. MATTER. WHAT.
You already have all the light you need within you. The trick is in letting it OUT.
And the secret ingredient?
The secret ingredient is always love.
What walls do you have around your heart that are BLOCKING your light and your love from being expressed in the way that you desire?
What fears are holding you back?
And what would it be like if you didn’t have to work so hard to protect that big, beautiful heart of yours?
For years, my password to almost everything was some variation of the word “Heartbroken” – even when I otherwise seemed “happy” and in love.
We may genuinely think we are broken sometimes.
We may genuinely believe that there is something wrong with us or that we are not enough or that we are broken.
We may feel the pain of these things so deeply that they must be true…
But thinking these things are true doesn’t mean they are actually true.
We experience these things as true ONLY when we believe them to be true.
NOT because they are actually true.
I absolutely love this little graphic from Danielle LaPorte, because it so clearly illustrates how what we believe about ourselves affects what else we think, feel, and do in our lives.
I invite you to take two minutes today to do this exercise for yourself and then choose consciously – on purpose – how you want to think about yourself going forward.
Notice how what you believe about yourself affects how you show up and how you experience your life.
Are you broken?
Or are you whole?
You get to decide – no matter what I or anyone else thinks.
Your opinion of you is the only one that really matters.
I invite you to see yourself as WHOLE. No matter what. Exactly as you are.
And then, I invite you to shine YOUR light, from the INSIDE out.
Little by little.
Because YOU matter!!
And because LOVE feels amazing. 🥰
P.S. This doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy basking in the light of others. It just means we don’t NEED something outside of us to make us whole.
P.P.S. The work that I do is all about helping moms see themselves as complete and whole, exactly as they are.
It’s about helping moms tap into their sufficiency and the power they already have within them, so that they can create a life that is fueled primarily by love and passion, rather than being fueled mostly by stress, pressure, and overwhelm.
This inner work is so important, because it impacts literally every other area of our lives, including our relationships with our husband and kids (and others!!), our physical health, our ability to have fun in life, and the way we spend our time.
Seeing ourselves as whole and living from a place of sufficiency allows us to create so much more of what we truly desire in our lives… and to feel as good about it on the inside as it looks on the outside.
If we want to deepen our connection with others and expand our impact, we must first deepen our connection with ourselves.
