Maybe You Can Have Your Cake and Eat it Too?

A FEEL GOOD invitation: to consider that you can have your cake AND eat it too:). I used to spend a lot of time in a large doomed place in my brain called the land of “it’s impossible”.  In that space I would lament the many things that I could not have.  Sometimes it was stuff like “I can’t be a pathologist AND a life coach!” or “I cannot have 4 kids, work all the time AND have a great marriage”  or “I can’t have enough money to live on and do work I love”.  Thinking and believing  these things truly FELT TERRIBLE.  They were poison for my FEEL GOOD. Each time would think them, I would go to the very darkest place and feel horrible and hopelesss.  And my life would reflect back to me what I had been thinking.  My clients come to me with similar thoughts  but ones that are unique to them.  We all have them…..

What is yours?  I can’t have _________ and ____________, that would be impossible!

What I have learned is that when we flip those upside down some pretty funny stuff can start happening.

Try it for yourself:

For ex:

I can have _______ and ____________!

I can go to church and be in a metal band!

I can get paid and be who I really am, just me!

I can experience joy and build sinuous muscular definition!

Even if we do not believe the reverse to be true, our brain starts to google search for possiblity, unlock options and , at the very  least, bring us opportunities to experience peace.   Then- see if you can notice where this ridiculous statement is already true in your life….in your neck of the woods…..in the world?

Let me know how it goes!  I would love to hear from you!  ~Sarah
