I read a story today in Tara Brach’s book Radical Acceptance that had me seeing with new eyes.
Paraphrasing, the story is that a family went out for dinner and everyone ordered for themselves. When it was the 5-year-old’s turn, she said, “I’ll have a hot dog, french fries, and a Coke!”. Her dad said, “No, you won’t. You’ll have meatloaf, green beans, and milk.” The server smiled at the little girl and said, “What would you like on that hot dog, hon?” When the server walked away the little girl beamed and said, “She thinks I’m real!”
While I don’t remember this particular scenario in my childhood, I still identify deeply with this story, having spent much of my life feeling invisible and not certain it was okay to do what I wanted.
Is this you too?
Does it just seem easier to go along with what others want than to make a fuss?
Do you ever think you should just be happy with what you’ve got?
Would you like to change the tapes in your head that shame you for needing more time alone, always wanting to turn down the volume, or wishing you could throw most invitations in the garbage without opening them so you could stay home?
I can guide you on a journey to turn those feelings around and help you replace the limiting beliefs with ones that serve who you are and want to be.
If you’ve been on the fence about changing how you approach the world, it’s time to make a decision.
Registration closes tomorrow morning at 10am Central.
Welcome Home to Your Self, my comprehensive program specifically for Highly Sensitive Introverts will not be open again until September 2020.
I’d love to welcome you into the small circle of women, much like you, who are ready to change the limiting beliefs that have driven their lives for decades.
You are worthy and deserving of a life of ease, joy, and contentment—and I can show you ways that work for Highly Sensitive Introverts to make this shift so that you can love your family life, your work, your place in the community, and yourself!
We start this week! Join us and get ready to take the baby steps toward the woman you want to be.
Here’s a note from Meghan who was in an earlier version of this program.
With Mary's coaching, I was able to uncover and fully embrace my authentic self. Not only did she help me find great clarity around who I am (and want to be) as a wife and a mother, but through listening and reflection, she also helped me rediscover who I am as a woman. The space to process, to be seen, to be held accountable, and receive the reflections that Mary gave was truly transformational.
