I had an amazing realization this week. There I was, about to make a call that was totally outside my comfort zone, but that I promised I would make. I was talking myself through it all, trying to prepare myself.
"Amanda, just be with THEM. Just connect. Come from your Heart..."
But underneath all of those empowering thoughts, something else was lingering, totally stopping me.
A voice popped into my head that reminded me, “you don’t need to get it perfectly right.”
Ahhh, there it is. Not for the first and definitely not for the last time. I just want everything I say to be perfect. I want the outcome to be exactly what I want. And I want it tobe easy, too.
Isn't that what we all want from life? Everything to be easy and perfect?
But seriously, where is the FUN in that?!
In preparing for this (totally outside my comfort zone) call, my next thought was this:
What if I allowed myself to get it all wrong?
The absurdity made me laugh out loud. But my perspective shifted instantaneously. If I truly allowed myself to get it all wrong, I would be free.
Like a little kid with a bin full of glitter and paints and an empty canvas, I was so excited to get on this call and just allow myself to get messy!
I noticed something really interesting while on the call. I did it "all wrong" immediately. I asked the difficult question without getting connected first. I kept on talking about myself. etc, etc, etc.
But every single time I noticed myself doing it the "wrong" way - the next moment there was forgiveness, acceptance, and a blank slate for the next moment.
There was compassion for myself. There was freedom, fun, and play.
Ultimately, I actually just made the freakin call!!
Bonus: I got messy and had a big smile on my face while doing what I needed to do.
