Let's have a conversation about you. We're talking about the real you that sometimes gets drowned out by all the noise. We're going to create a dialogue between those parts of you - the parts that have so much to contribute - and the parts of you that forget the truth of that at times.
Why, you may ask, are we interested in having this conversation?
Because we’re all curious to see what will happen when you Spill Over.
Personally, I’ve been consumed by this idea for decades. I’ve watched it happen over and over again. People step into their power, and amazing things happen. Every single one of them had obstacles, and fears, and doubts to overcome. They are all just like us. They simply chose to fill themselves up until they overflowed, and it was amazing.
So what does that look like for you?
What becomes possible when you fill yourself to overflowing with all the things that make you uniquely you?
What’s your life like when you fill yourself to bursting with all the good stuff that brings you joy, and contentment, and inspiration?
What happens when you fill yourself so much that you can’t contain it anymore, and all of your awesomeness spills over on to the rest of us?
Doesn’t that sound like a glorious mess worth celebrating?
We’re here to play with that idea. Let’s entertain the thought of what becomes possible if you were to spill over again and again.
Of course, that means you’ll need to begin by first filling yourself up. That starts with a firm commitment to nurture your body, your mind, and your soul.
That wouldn’t be such a bad thing, would it?
Why not give yourself permission to take care of yourself?
It’s not much fun when we neglect ourselves, is it? Have you ever drained yourself to what felt like the point of no return?
Have you ever felt like you had nothing left to give? Like you’d been sucked dry and all that’s left is a hollow shell with a painful smile plastered to your face?
I think we all have. Is that how we should go through life?
We need to stop emptying ourselves. It doesn’t help anyone. It’s time to break down the dams in our heads and hearts so that we can flow. Now more than ever, we need each other.
Fill yourself up. Then spill over.
My goal is to share some thoughts about this common affliction we all suffer from called “Being Human”. I’ll offer some questions for us to ponder, and share my dreams for you, my fellow humans who I love and believe in so deeply.
If you enjoy a little deep thinking on occasion, you’ll find some opportunities to flex those mental muscles here. If you’re feeling a little worn down, feel free to use this to pick yourself up. If you’re feeling powerful and ready go be amazing, let this add a little more fuel to your fire.
Whatever season of your life you are in right now, you have value that is worth sharing.
Let’s all Spill Over, make a big beautiful mess, and see what happens :)
