It’s the question that often dips in and out of conversations at parties, over a coffee, or when you’re out to dinner – how does she do it all? No really, what does she know that I don’t know. How does she manage to keep this picture-perfect life so in line? Surely not can someone really live such a fabulous life so effortlessly? There’s a glow about her, and it’s not a skincare serum. The truth is I can let you in on the secret, the question is are you ready for the truth?
The truth is… she’s taken a leap of faith, and trusts her inner guidance to lead her through life. She aggressively edits her life when she feels she’s hit a rock or a hard place and pivots in the direction of change. She constantly strives for her goals but doesn’t let this want to achieve them consume her. This woman who’s life you so adore, she has faced unfathomable challenges, she’s overcome them again and again.
The truth is… she accepts when she is at her strongest and when she is most vulnerable. This means having a thorough understanding of what optimum capacity looks like in her life. She understands her purpose is to do more than simply serve others, she recognises the balance between taking time for herself and giving unconditional kindness.
The truth is… she is brutally honest with herself. She is not scared of standing in her truth, and she is not afraid to admit she is still exploring what her truth is. Most of all this woman is not afraid to admit that she cannot do everything all of the time, by herself. She is quite happy to find resourceful ways to outsource her tasks.
The truth is… she’s taken the time to truly tap into her confidence. She knows when and how to indulge in luxurious activities, and what to consume in moderation. She doesn’t get caught up in controlling situations and scenarios in her life, instead, she takes each day as it comes. She rides the waves of life and is consciously working to understand her story and enjoy her journey, instead of solely focusing on the end goal and the material attributes. She guards her peace with her life because it’s the most precious thing to her. That’s what you’re picking up on. A woman who is at peace with herself and at peace in her life.
She understands that we only have what we’re working with, and she knows not to measure herself up to a perfect picture.
She is you. You have the power to cherry-pick the parts of life you want, and cast aside the parts that you have no energy for. This life is yours to curate as you wish.
