Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!
Welcome to The Force Within, twice-weekly articles exploring our personal power -- created by me, Rhonda Ross.
Are you a woman of a “certain age?”
(I like to call us “Grownfolk”)
Because we are grown, right? We are GROWN UP WOMEN on this road of life. And this road is twist-y and turn-y and loop-de-loop-y and… you never know what’s coming next.
It feels like each day, there’s another bump in the road that we need to navigate around — and dense fog on our path that we have to figure out how on earth we are going to find our way through!
Because we are the care-takers.
We’re the “get-it-done-ers.”
We’re the ones who spin those plates, and we don’t let "not ONE of them fall."
We juggle our roles as mothers, daughters, wives, sisters and friends, and we don't let "not ONE of them fall".
So then, why do we sometimes feel so UNSEEN? So lost? So like our work goes unnoticed (even with all this navigating through fog and spinning of plates and stuff)? Like somehow life is just dragging us along?
When will we take the chance to carve out time for OURSELVES? To focus on our own needs, our own dreams - our own goals? To spin our own plates? (...asking for a friend)
Here’s the deal: we’re still vital, you and me (“certain age” or not!). We’re still full of energy. We still have goals and dreams and desires. It’s time for us to start pouring some of that energy back into ourselves. To feel our OWN feelings…listen to our OWN thoughts…pursue our OWN dreams… reclaim our OWN LIVES!
I call myself a “Grownfolk,” because, to me, a “grown folk” is someone who is old enough to finally know what she wants out of her life (what her talents and dreams are) but still young enough to follow her inner compass to go get it. The first thing I do is remember my dreams -- the dreams I had before all my "grown folk" responsibilities became a priority.
The Force within us is our compass. Our inner joy. Our inner peace. That "still quiet voice" that whispers in our ear "Keep going. You're not finished yet". We were born with it, and though we may not have tapped into it recently, it is still there (and will always be there) for us!
And today — together — we’re going to start learning how to harness it, trust it and be guided by it.
From now on, intend to reconnect with your dreams. They are yours and they were put into your heart for a reason!
You don't have to know how you are going to accomplish them right now (that will be shown to you). You just have to allow yourself to want them again.
