Yesterday, I attended a dance event where I watched one my clients revive a dancing career she left behind a decade ago. She was INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!! I knew how much the moment meant to her – and today, I’m still over Mars, Jupiter, and Neptune happy for and proud of her.
As I watched her, it got me thinking.
Isn’t it fascinating how we can rationalize, for an endless number of reasons, why it’s “okay” to abandon some “thing” that fuels our soul like nothing else? Maybe we’ve told ourselves that the “letting go” is part of “growing up” and being a “responsible” human being. Perhaps, someone close to us (who doesn’t even know what they’re talking about) made a catty comment that stung so much, it bounced off the walls of our mind for years and derailed our confidence. Or it could be we (think) we’ve convinced ourselves that having the fancy car, the prestigious career, the envy-inducing relationship, the perfect family, or the big house can fill that empty place inside. (But it really doesn’t.)
As a result, we go through life HOLE. Not WHOLE.
My client’s dance piece was an uber inventive and creative representation of the barriers women face while climbing the corporate ladder or trying to get a foot in the door.
Essentially, it was about hitting the glass ceiling.
Today, my rock star client shattered a glass ceiling.
Her INNER glass ceiling.
It’s the best kind to shatter. Because when you do — ANYTHING is possible. You literally spring out of the darkness and into the light.
If you resonate with this post, I have great news for you. If my client did it, it means you can too.
Is there a longing in your life that you’ve cast aside? What’s holding you back? What if that barrier didn’t even exist? What if it was impossible to even think about it? What would you do? What’s one little step you could take today to even put a little crack in your inner glass ceiling?
