I believe we are on the edge of something big, something different. As a woman, you have been leading your life similar to that of your mother or others you have seen. You think that you have to choose between taking care of yourself or taking care of others, you have to choose between having a family or living your dream, running a business or living a life of adventure.
What if there is another way?
I call it living the AND. Instead of believing you have to cut out one part of your life that is important for another, what if you don’t have to? What if you can have both?
I believe you can and we are at a time in history (her-story) we can redefine how we live, how we show up, how we create the life we want.
One of the first things to start living in the AND is your MINDSET… believing you can. If you think you have to choose, you will continue putting yourself in that position. Again and again you’ll feel like you don’t have enough time, energy, money, (fill in the blank with your excuse) as to why you have to choose. And you’ll really believe there is no other way.
There is. You create a different way. You say I’m gonna live in the AND. You find a way. You stop saying, “I can’t” and you start saying “How can I?” How can I take care of myself and others? How can I live my dream and find financial freedom? How can I tune in to my spirit and take care of my responsibilities? How can I?
Another big piece to living the AND is SUPPORT. I’m BIG on support and just wrote a post last week. If you’d like, you can read it here. This is what it boils down to… If you surround yourself with people who believe you can’t, you won’t. You need people to push you towards your vision, who live in the space of possibility instead of being “realistic” a.k.a. dream squashing. If you’d like to join a group of women dedicated to living the AND, leave a message on the contact box on the right.
Living the AND is about creating a new way, showing other women the possibilities. When they see you do it, they’ll start to question their own thinking… they’ll start to see more openings, more ways to create the life they want. If you are willing to take on Living the AND, consider yourself an ambassador showing another way.
