I must admit that I have been afraid that I fail. The fear of failure has been the scary monster under my bed. As I’m following my calling, it led me to a road less traveled. I have found it challenging at times, sometimes even lonely... But I want to share with you a recent incident that has helped me to continue on my path. Maybe it will help you too!
I participated Bill Baren’s Unstoppable event and when I headed to a lunch, I was pumped up with energy and bubbled about business ideas with a new acquaintance. As usual, I walked on my sky-high heels, but my journey was suddenly interrupted as you might have already guessed... I stepped into a crack in the asphalt and lost my balance. I fell down. My left knee hit the concrete, and it hurt...
As I got up, I thought that ‘Oh yeah, the whole day I aimed to brainwash myself to believe that I’m unstoppable and then a little crack can put me down on my knees...’
I walked slowly back to the hotel with my worried acquaintance. I just wanted to cover my wound because I felt embarrassed. Luckily, I got some first aid products from the hotel’s reception for my bloody knee. Once I got the wound cleaned and covered, I suddenly felt a giggle building inside of me. I got the Universe’s twisted joke on this!
I fell down in order to simply get up again and continue my journey one lesson wiser! I realized that my initial embarrassment was just my own judgment as I wanted to be flawless, but that’s not really an option in life. I realized that I had immediately recognized my judgment and applied a huge dose of compassionate self-forgiveness and self-love! The two years of Spiritual Psychology studies are paying off!
Sometimes we might fall down, sometimes we might make mistakes, but the most important thing is how we relate to ourselves while we are going through the situation… If we find ourselves on our knees, it does not mean that we can’t continue!
I'm no longer embarrassed about the scar on my knee - nor my other scars - they are reminders that I have continued my journey! They show my incredible capacity to heal. It's true that I might face small or big challenges on my way but I keep moving forward towards the Light!
