“It’s fine to share your shit,” said my coach, “just so long as you’ve made it to the other side.”
Which is great advice.
Except if you’re human.
Because being a human is messy. There’s a lot of stuff.
And if we wait to share what’s true, to bare our hearts, until we’ve got it all figured out there’s a damn good chance we won’t be sharing much.
You know what I mean?
I’m sharing this because as a Business Coach I see a lot of women who have passion burning in their hearts but fear strangling their minds.
Fear that who they are isn’t enough. Or that people will find out who they really are. Or that someone will discover they are working on a bunch of crap and they haven’t yet made it to the other side.
Which is terrifying until you realize that no one has made it to the other side.
Not for long anyway.
I just signed up for a ten-month mastermind with some amazing feminine leaders.
Part of the reason I signed up was because I am desperate to just be me and have women who see the brilliance in that, the beauty in that and the sheer power in that, and be able to reflect it all back to me as I move forward in my commitment to helping women around the world live into their own greatness.
Just as they are.
Women who have passion. Who long for honesty. Who crave deep intimacy. Who know there is a power to their sexuality. Who want to make money doing what they love and who finally can rest in the knowing that they truly are enough as they are.
We talk about it all the time on the internet.
Speak your truth.
But then we don’t do it.
Because we don’t want to share our shit until we’re on the other side.
But what I’m learning is there is only one side.
And it’s the side of a woman standing in her stunning magnificence just as she is.
And knowing it.
Without having to prove a damn thing.
Because she’s on her side.
And that’s the only one that counts.
