As you wrapped up 2023, are you where you thought you’d be?
Are you as fulfilled as your mission statement, vision statement, vision board sessions, church sermons, advanced degrees, marriage, divorce, empty nest, retirement, new business startup, new book, new house, new car, new state, new career, ad infinitum, as you thought you’d be? Has the American Dream delivered on what it PROMISED?
If you are like most women we know who are high-performing, high-achieving professionals, thought leaders, or business owners, who we call “Boss Chicks,” you can feel like you’ve been “sold” a bogus bill of goods. The American Dream was supposed to be your ticket to fulfillment and success. You played by the rules. However, chasing this “dream” has left you stressed out, disappointed, stuck, angry, tired, drained, depleted and maybe even feeling alone. Has this strive, chase, grind, approach to success REALLY worked for your mind, spirit, heart and body?
Based on our up-close work with hundreds upon hundreds of women, and what we’ve heard, seen and observed through women-centered podcasts, talk shows, song lyrics, live events, women’s workshops, business magazines, life magazines, social media and mainstream media the answer is a resounding NO!
WHY does deep joy and deep peace seem to elude so many of us? Did you know that JOY is a state of BE-ing that corresponds to a vibration? JOY has an actual frequency. And most importantly, many of us don’t realize that, at its core, what we seek, is at the HEART of the matter. And what is this “matter?” It’s what deep fulfillment, deep satisfaction and deep peace and deep joy are made of and based upon.
In the lives of too many highly capable, smart, high performing Black Women, we’ve quietly been yearning for something different – to change things up, to actually exit OUT of the chase and grind way of living that’s still the norm. However, we’ve been trying to put new wine in old wine skin. And this produces short-term results. What happens when we try to bring about a “new thing” in our lives this way? The old wine skin cracks, tears and splits, and then bursts and leaks.
The old wine skin represents our old familiar beliefs, old ways of deciding, behaving and reacting, and old trains of thought that create seeds of self-doubt, low-level self-love, mis-managing your energy, struggling to honor yourself and your energy in ALL areas of your life, including with family. The Old wine skin lacks the capacity to hold the “new wine. Dealing with the repeated “leakages” can have you second guessing your value, quietly questioning your worth, attracting men that are not aligned with what you desire; and defaulting to coping instead of knowing how to ASCEND.
We hope you’ll agree that the old model of success has stopped serving us (if it ever did) and has actually worn us out, worn us down, or both.
The direction to go is UP. In this new year, is there a new and refreshing way to BE, relate, engage, move and show up that brings more ease, flow and satisfaction?
The answer is a resounding YES!!
