dining on satisfaction

You can dine on Satisfaction in one of two ways…

The ‘fresh, organic whole food edition’, or the ‘fast food edition’.

Just like real fast food, the fast food edition of the life-giving energy of satisfaction, is cheap, low quality, might feel good at the time but ultimately depletes you and is definitely not going to give you enough nourishment to sustain you…

The fresh, organic whole food edition in contrast, is curated with wholesome ingredients that provide genuine nourishment that will sustain you long term.  It’s rich with nutrients that can be absorbed deep into your very cells, and become the building blocks of whatever life you are creating for yourself going forwards…

Too many successful women are dining on fast food style satisfaction and wondering why they’re not getting the benefits of the fresh, organic whole food variety…

Working ridiculous hours, hustling towards endless project deadlines that leave you with no breathing room, bingeing on Netflix, YouTube, alcohol, social media or empty sex with people who don’t cherish you.  (Or maybe you’re married and there’s no sex at all because just like your hobbies, you’ve given up on your pleasure as ‘unnecessary’.)  Choosing to put crap, processed food in your body, getting poor sleep and neglecting the things you were once passionate about because you work too much and are too exhausted after hours to do anything meaningful.

You might get a hit of satisfaction from nailing that next milestone in the project, or getting celebrated by your team leader for your hard work.  The YouTube might be entertaining to watch, and the wine might taste great…

But are you REALLY satisfied?

C’mon ladies – let’s dine at Vue de Monde, not Macca’s.

What ways can you see to transition to sources of genuine, meaningful Satisfaction?

Never underestimate the power of your past. Because it’s not in the past. It’s here in this living moment with you – woven into your responses, choices and perceptions; baked into your nervous system and psyche through and reinforcement and repetition.

That doesn’t mean your past has to define you, not at all.

Though, you’re lying to yourself if you say ‘its in the past’, yet have done no work to clear the ripples of that past from your system to create space for something new.

Yesterday, in a session with my coach, I went ‘back in time’ to the end of 2020, when I went through an experience that was somewhat challenging for me.

Here is a sublime example

Despite acknowledging the challenge at the time, I realised looking back that I hadn’t fully resolved or digested what happened there.

Part of me stayed frozen in that experience, and on the subtlest of levels, I have gotten in my own way unconsciously ever since.

That past experience was with me in every moment. It informed my capacity and energy levels, choices and perceptions.

And this is how the past shapes us – you have experiences that your system ‘learns’ from, and you then – often completely unconsciously – adjust accordingly to avoid repeating painful or difficult events.

We are such clever adaptive creatures.

But, those ‘adaptations’ will inadvertently shape your behaviour, attitudes, thoughts and feelings in a way that can begin to inhibit your ability to fully show up for your business or career, relationships, and life in general.

If you bring the process of ‘learning’ from these past experiences into consciousness, you gift yourself the chance to mine the gold from the past, get the learnings and gifts link example: and then move forward with your life.

„ QUOTE DESIGN: I CALL THIS PROCESS ‘DIGESTING’ YOUR PAST EXPERIENCES, AND HAVE SPECIFIC PRACTICES I TEACH TO SUPPORT YOU TO DO THIS.“

I call this process ‘digesting’ your past experiences, and have specific practices I teach to support you to do this.

The challenges of the past – and your adaptations – can become like a cage you find yourself living in if you’re not aware, but this digestion process ensures your continued liberation…

Which past experiences do you need to free yourself from?
