After three months of Square One work- I found myself smiling.
Greeting myself in my own life.
Cleansed. Refreshed. Renewed.
I feel like the Universe has been cleaning my psyche with an SOS pad. And now I can sparkle.
After reading my past few blog posts, a reader send me an email in a panic.
"Brooke Castillo-you can't have problems! If you suffer and struggle, what kind of hope is there for any of us?"
She was serious.
I was amused.
I believe I am a good coach because I have been to hell and back. Twice. Not because I dance on a cloud all day and never feel pain.
My pain hurts just as badly as your pain. Pain is pain.
I have to use these tools just as often as you do. My thoughts keep coming everyday-just like yours.
And sometimes, I go through a catalytic event that throws me on my ass into Square One.
And get really really scared.
I hide behind my fear and look away from my thoughts.
I watch myself do it.
Then I get to work.
And then it still hurts and I do it again.
Then I want to give up.
Then I do give up.
Then I start again and cry some more.
Work. Cry. Work. Cry.
At some point I start taking some action and believing in new thoughts.
And then the dreams begin. The scheming begins.
I have a tremendous surge of energy driving me to Create from my new place of healing.
I look in the mirror and recognize myself looking back and I say to myself,
"Now, let's have some fun!"
And I mean it.
