13 Feb I Realised…Sometimes We’re Too Much
I’ve realised a few things lately…..The first is that if doing business is akin to having a relationship, then if you’re anything like me, you find similarities in your ideal client. Have you noticed?
Maybe you think the same, have had similar patterns, challenges or blocks, and enjoy the same things in life….
There are things you love and respect about your ideal client. There are similar values and even a common outlook on life that you share.
Recently I’ve realised something else too. And I’m taking a deep breath as I share this with you…
I’ve been sitting with some big learnings – and if I’ve been doing that, then it typically means that my ideal client has been doing it on some level too.
Here’s where you fit in….and I’d love to know if this has been coming for you too….
I’ve started off this new year, this year of new beginnings, really connecting into a deep inner knowing of who I am.
Who I truly am, not just who I think I ‘should’ be.
Yet I’ve been finding myself wanting to deny it. Curious at myself. Making excuses for it. Of what I’ve manifested. Created. Noticing. Observing. Realising.
Feeling like I am a “too much” woman.
The one with a mask we often find ourselves wearing, one who loves too hard, feels too deeply, asks too often, desires so much, who so easily sees life with rose tinted glasses.
The one with the almost unearthly ability to reach for the positive in life even when it throws curveballs. (Like when my suitcase went missing for 30 hours this weekend as I flew from Auckland to Wellington!).
The one taking up too much space, with my smile, my laughter, my positivity, my honesty, my passion.
My presence filling up the room. My light shining her glow into even the darkest of paths.
There I am causing a ripple with my persistence, my aura of possibility. I desire a lot, I want it all —too much happiness, too much alone time, too much pleasure, too much joy.
I’ve been through the depths to find her, and hellfire to get it.
And I share this with you because if you are anything like me, you know that instead of hiding in the shadows of our too-much-ness…
I see that like you, I’ll risk all to quell the longings of my heart and Soul.
I see that my too-much-ness is just right.
The “Too Much Woman” is me – and perhaps it’s you too? And here I am, that “too much” woman, making people think too much, feel too much, go too deep. Me with my authentic prose and self-assuredness in the way I carry myself. Me with my infectious smile and my insatiable appetite and my proneness to delicious passion.
This is me… this “too much” woman. . . too joy-filled, too vibrant, too honest, too emotional, too smart, too intense,
too pretty, too talkative, too questioning, too happy, too wild, too intimidating, too successful, too strong, too Spiritual, too joyous, too needy—too much.
If you’re anything like me, you’ll have people around you who think that you are ‘too much.’ If they haven’t already, they’ll want to tell you.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t need anyone to tell me. I already know. Here I am. The Too Much Woman, with my too-tender heart and my too-much emotions.
A freedom seeking, happiness craving, life-loving empath. I want a lot—justice, sincerity, spaciousness, ease, intimacy, experiences, respect, to be seen, to be understood, the undivided attention of a sweet love, and all of the promises to be kept.
I’ve been called self-assured because I want what I want, and intimidating because of the space I occupy.
I’ve been called simple because I see things with childlike wonder.
I’ve been called a white witch because I know how to heal myself. How to self-love.
And so. . . I rise.
Still, I want and feel and ask and risk and love and take up space. I must. It’s who I am. I see it now. I’m a ‘Too Much Woman.’
And I embrace all that I am —all of my depth, all of my expansiveness; to let my voice be heard, with the promise to never give up on myself, my larger than life bigness, my radiant light. I stand for my too-much-ness as a gift; one that can heal, allow, ignite, liberate, and create transformations.
I was afraid of this gift, and made excuses for it. But I’m now embracing that knowing that my too-much-ness is also magic, it is filled with miracles. It’s my Valentine’s gift to myself.
It is life changing.
As a Too Much Woman I will: Ask. Seek. Desire. Expand. Move. Feel. Be. Love. Grow. Embrace.
I am no longer afraid of who I am. I make no apologies.
I am certain that I am exactly who I am here to be. I am here with my big heart and my pure love building businesses and living life to the fullest.
I am here to no longer hide.
If you can relate, and you’re no longer willing to hide your too-much-ness then know that you are not alone.
Let’s rise together – taking business to the next level as we embrace our ‘too-much-ness.’
It’s time. The moon is at its Fullest tonight and we're being asked to prepare ... Read more
