I’m just gonna break it down here real quick.
And you trying to please everyone and save yourself from pain and embarrassment and failure isn’t actually going to save you from any of those things.
So by doing what you *think* everyone wants you to do (not start that business, not go on that cross country road trip, not marry the one that makes no sense on paper but makes your stomach flip, not hit publish on that blog post) not only will you STILL experience those emotions (because you’re human and that’s how it goes), but you’ll also be living your life according to someone else’s rules.
I’m not mad. Even though I might sound like it. More like…I think this message is WILDLY important and bears repeating.
It reminds me of my favorite quote by Dita Von Teese:
All we can do is try to live our lives the best way that we know how and follow our own path. (TWEET THIS)
Follow our own arrow.
And THIS is the Wildheart Revolution.
Doing your own thing. Following your own path. Following your own arrow…wherever it points.
And it’s messy. And it won’t go perfectly. And you’ll mess up. And be embarrassed. But that’s the life of someone who wants to live beyond the status quo. Someone who wants to create something beautiful in this world.
If you’re reading this…THIS IS YOU. I know it. And so I created a video for you. It’s messy too. And definitely not perfect. I could have done a million takes to make sure you think it’s good. But you know what? I’m a human being. And I make mistakes. And sing out of tune. And forget the words to songs.
And that’s what makes me ME. And that’s my only job in life. I hope you enjoy this video and don’t laugh at me too hard for totally F-ing up this song.
So this begs the question…where is YOUR arrow pointing right now? What have you been scared to do? Where have you been holding yourself back? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
And if you want to be a part of a MOVEMENT that is doing something different. That is dedicated to living of a life of beautiful imperfection while still reaching your dreams, get on the list to find out the second that doors swing open for the next round of the Wildheart Revolution.
