A Love Story: Have You Been Neglecting To Trust Yourself?







This article is from my MONTHLY LOVE LETTER where I share my experiences and ideas around taking a slower, more natural approach to taking intentional action, prioritizing our energy, embodying values, experimenting with new ways of working, and upgrading our mindset. And who knows what else! If you are a Curious Individual, Creative Entrepreneur or are part of a Conscious Company and are interested to explore new possibilities for showing up with more ease within your work and life, I invite you to reach out to learn how I can support you through personalized coaching or customized collaborative experiences.

Have You Ever Thought About What Could Be Possible if You Trusted as Much as You Hoped?

A theme I have noticed in my own life is my uncanny ability to hold hope even in difficult times. There were times where I allowed this hope to overshine any intuitive whispers which I instead would shove down and neglect because of just how big my hope was… this hope for things to ‘change’ or to ‘get better’. And these hopes were usually tied to another individual, or environment, or relationship, or opportunity that I truly already knew were misaligned.

While I still believe hope is a very important part of what keeps me dreaming and going when things may be uncertain, I have been realizing lately… as I reflect on those times where I hadn’t listened to my intuition in the past… I can see that misalignment so very clearly, but what I realize is that my self-trust… that ability to listen and take inspired action based on that intuition… just didn’t match the level of hope that I was holding in my heart.

It can be easy to crack it up to simply following my heart, but as I said, I can see the misalignment so, so clearly now, and I know it’s because my level of self-trust has caught up to that sense of hope.

You see, our intuition is always communication with us… those messages that come to us like whispers, the feeling of unsettledness or certainty in the gut, or even in physical sensations in the body. And we can find a billion ways to talk ourselves out of listening or initiating something that will undoubtedly result in some sort of change.

But first…Where in your life have you been neglecting to trust yourself?

Why not give the same amount of trust or faith to ourselves that we’re already giving away to others?

The more we can match our self-trust to hope, the more confidence we will carry to make decisions that support us to really show up as our best selves… with love… with courage… with ease.
