Get Out of Your Own Damn Way

Happy New Moon loves! 

Can you believe we’ve made it to the second month of the year? It’s such a beautiful time energetically to begin the month with a new moon. Everything about life feels free and optimistic. I wish I could tell you all that I’ve made a massive list of plans for this month and the coming months to follow. I haven’t. One thing I’ve committed to in 2019 is going with the flow.

Wherever God leads me is obviously where I need to be. If I feel called to do something, I am simply going to do despite the fear, doubt, or guilt I may feel. I am learning to embrace the currents of life and trust that no matter the direction in which these currents flow, I am always covered and divinely favored. 

If you’ve been following me from the beginning, many of you may know that I’ve suffered and still suffer from severe anxiety. I mean it’s crippling at times. The Universe has really been illuminating the ways I’ve been allowing my fear to control my life and the decisions that I make. I’ve been stopping to ask myself often “do you really feel this way or is this your fear trying to control the situation or a particular outcome?” Now that I’ve been able to identify how controlling my anxiety clearly can be, maneuvering through life, making decisions and doing what’s right feels so much lighter. Lately, I’ve also had an extreme desire to focus on and put my responsibilities first more than ever.

If you know me, you know that I’ve always been an extremely responsible individual, but as of late, that level of responsibility for me has intensified. I guess it has a lot to do with leveling up during my Saturn return and being only a few weeks shy of turning 30. My level of responsibility has been on one hundred. I’ve also had a very low tolerance for bullshit lately. I won’t entertain anything or anyone who drains me of my peace and mental clarity. If it requires me to be self-sacrificial or commit any form of self-betrayal, it’s going to be a NO for me dawg! 

Internally, I’ve leveled-up tremendously. I see the changes that I’ve made in every decision and move that I make daily. I knew that doing the work was vital for me because there was no way that I could enter this next level of my life with the same old habits and toxic mentality. The former me had to die and will continue to be shed to make room for the blessings that God is bestowing upon my life. For the first time in a long time, I entered a new year seeing the manifestations of my hard work. I had physical, live proof of what God was doing and going to continue to do as the year unfolded. I say all of this with no intent to brag but every intent to empower you.

This is not a time for us to second guess what we’re capable of. This is not a time in our lives where we continue to waste our time with individuals who drain us dry emotionally and are no good for us on a spiritual level. This is not a time to play small and ignore the gifts you’ve been blessed with. This is not a time to play small by surrounding yourself with people who don’t inspire you to be your best self. Your message is to get out of your own damn way in 2019.

Let go of your old programming. Release your old ways of living, being and thinking. It’s a new wave! It’s a new dawn; I hope you feel this new wave of cosmic energy and understand that presently, it’s about doing the work. There’s no time for play, play. This is your life; this is your future we’re talking about. Get out your own damn way and start making life happen. Chase your dreams. Live in your truth. Stand in your power. Again, get out of your own damn way.
