Well, what can I say, it´s B O L L O C K S - if you have been brainwashed into this belief, you can free yourself NOW!
Do you know? -
You have the power at any time to change the way you feel.
Many people go through life thinking that they feel good or bad, happy or sad, content or angry, because of the people in their life, the things that are happening around them, or the environment that they are living in.
They believe that the actions of other people, the environment they are living in, and the things that are happening in their lives, are what influence their mood, i.e. affect the way they feel.
While it is true that these things CAN influence the way we feel, they can only do so IF we allow it - No one, No place, and No thing can MAKE you feel a certain way unless you allow it to.
I am going to say that again because most people do not really get it -
No one, No place, and No thing can MAKE you feel a certain way unless you allow it to.
We are even brainwashed into believing that our happiness SHOULD depend on all of these things outside of us and outwith our control!
We are taught this from a very young age. When we live with this belief, we give away our power to feel better every day.
What if it was a lie?
What if, no matter what was going on around you, you could choose to be at peace with it, or not?
What if, whatever you choose to feel you control, no one else.
You take responsibility for how you feel and how you react - you then have 100% Response-ability and you become Response-able.
Would you believe me? or do you believe that the way you feel depends on things outwith your control?
Well, what can I say, it´s B O L L O C K S - if you have been brainwashed into this belief you can free yourself NOW!
As always, the choice is yours.
As William Arthur Ward said
-"Happiness is an inside job"
You have no control over anyone else or their behaviour.
You have no control over your government, your weather, or your pets.
The only thing you CAN control is how you react to anything, this will determine how you feel, your actions, and in turn the reactions from those around you.
This alone changes your whole world!
Go on, give it a try, you have nothing to lose.

What is self-awareness, and what do we gain from it?
If you look up the meaning of self-awareness, it says - "conscious knowledge of one's own character and feelings." It says nothing about how to deal with it when you dislike what you become aware of.
In today's world, I believe that self-awareness is recognising how you feel and accepting that you are the only one who can change it.
To grow, you must accept 100% responsibility, and then you can take back your power. If you do not know yourself, your beliefs, your dreams, your strengths, and your weaknesses, you cannot do that. When you have access to how you feel on an emotional level and recognise how it affects your beliefs and therefore your actions, it is transformational.
As a life coach, the greatest gift we offer our clients is the space, encouragement, and support to find the connection to their emotions. We can then support self-awareness and self-empowerment.
Too often self-awareness advocates focus on looking inward and ignoring the external environment.
It is important to acknowledge both internal and external awareness because self-awareness encompasses both.
When you begin your journey into awareness and take stock of how you feel about your situations and environment, it opens you up to so many things that you did not notice before. Using your five senses to experience fully how the environment you see, hear, smell, touch, and taste translates internally to your sixth sense (your emotions) is the key to self-awareness. Taking this holistic view allows you to connect to self-awareness and relate to your situations and environment, knowing what is right for you, and how to deal with what you feel is not right for you.
Connecting to every experience and every situation and then looking inward to your feelings, your beliefs, and then your reactions to your world enable true self-awareness. By making how you feel your number 1 priority, no matter what, you become truly self-aware.
The road to self-awareness leads to letting go of all self-judgements and self-expectations; it means giving yourself a break, in the same way you would for a friend or loved one, be kind to yourself, and accept who you are, warts and all.
Many people believe they are more self-aware than they are because they find it challenging to be honest with themselves. It's easier to ignore those feelings of guilt, shame, and unworthiness than to look deep inside and take responsibility for them. The best way to develop self-awareness is to take time to connect to how you feel and accept that it's ok to feel whatever it is and it's also ok to change it when you are ready. When you become adept at connecting to your inner emotional state, you may find there are many times when you dislike what you feel, you then have the power to change it.
Look at your beliefs, your strengths, and your weaknesses. If you are self-aware, you will instinctively know how you feel about anything and if it is right for you. You, and only you, know what you need, what will work for you, and what will not.
When you are undecided it is ok for you to pause and connect to that inner knowing, then to choose if, and when the right time is for you.
So, what is self-awareness, and what do we gain from it?
It is connecting to how you feel and being ok with whatever that is in the knowledge that you have control. We become empowered.
Whatever you are doing today, enjoy, have fun, and feel good!
