I've been feeling a bit off for a few months now...
There have been many changes in my personal and professional life.
However, it is not fair to label this moment that I am going through as something terrible because even if I do not feel yummy or comfortable, I know that it is not bad.
On the contrary, I feel that it is essential to get where I want to go.
With this said, this optimism is not the most regular in my day-to-day life.
Instead, the way I have been navigating most of my days is under the mantra "Fake it until you make it."
That mantra may have a negative connotation for some people, but it is an invitation to do the work as I see it.
For example, lately, I'm not in the mood to go to therapy, but I still decide to fake it and show up to do the work.
And sometimes it is not fun at all. Sometimes show up means going to therapy and crying for days because you tap into something significant.
Every time we decide to take the path that takes us out of autopilot living, even if it is a "fake" step, we are choosing to love ourselves because although there is the possibility of making mistakes, we move from a space that is not working anymore.
Sometimes I feel that I took some steps back in my progress - but after a few days, I realize that it is not a step backward but a great act of self-love.
If we start to see our processes from this space, it becomes easier for us to be present and enjoy the journey.
So I invite you to try it. I invite you to fake it until you become and embody your goals and dreams.
