Emotional Freedom: Turn Your Scars into Stars…

| September 22, 2018


 

“Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. But what you’re doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you.” ~ Joel Osteen

The Power to Be Yourself…

When we think of emotional freedom, we often equate it with the freedom to be ourselves.

Loved as we are, who we are, where we are in life — regardless of how we got there.

Some of us have scars we need to turn into stars.

Some of us are rising stars and have yet to suffer life’s many scars.

But suffer we will. It is the natural order of things.

Most people look at their lives as a mirror… a reflection of a collection of life experiences.

Some of those experiences have caused us to worry.

Worry causes us to frown.

Frowns cause those little lines to appear on your face called wrinkles.

Wrinkles do not really show your age, they show a beautiful map of where you have been.

When we spend time in worry, the wrinkles add up.

They don’t just show up on the outside, they also manifest themselves on the inside.

We start to doubt ourselves, and in the process, we feel less free.

The good news is that the opposite is also true.

Positivity and a generally cheerful demeanor creates laugh lines… again a map to where you have been, and more importantly, who you have been.

In the end, we all are given many second chances to turn our worry wrinkles into a face that glows with happiness and satisfaction.

No question, we wear our emotional freedom on our face. We see it. Our friends and family see it. The world sees it.

We are driven to be happy.

Being emotionally free means the freedom to be happy.

Happy with yourself.

Happy with the people in your life.

Happy at work and play.

So the question turns to the big word in the room: HOW.

How do we find the path to just being ourselves?

How do we lose the fear that we are not good enough, rich enough, smart enough, something enough?

The answer is actually quite simple.

We stop avoiding the hurts and start playing the game of life to win.

Like a football player, we should never play injured. But we are expected to play hurt.

Recognize we all play the game hurt. None of us gets out of this life without lots of scars.

But we all have the freedom to reach for the stars and turn our hurts into a lifetime of second chances.
