What 2022 taught me....
One of the questions I always ask at the new year is "What were my biggest lessons this year?" I think one of my answers might apply to a lot of people, so I wanted to share it with you here.
When one of my loved ones is struggling with something, I have a tendency to want to jump right in and fix everything for them, or at least coach them on how to fix it, or at least get all caught up in the struggle with them. Can you relate?
What I keep learning over and over is that it really doesn't serve me or my loved ones when I do this. Of course, I want to be compassionate and empathetic, but things tend to go much better when I focus on my own energy instead of getting tangled up with theirs.
When I stand in my own power, I'm more likely to let them have their own experiences and to trust that they're meant to have those experiences. Even when they're difficult ones.
When I take myself out of the equation, I'm more likely to be able to hold space for them or to support them, whichever they need in the moment.
If you are also a "fixer" like I am, I thought this lesson I'm learning might be something you want to explore for yourself.
What big lessons did 2022 bring you?
Love and light,
