You are stronger than you think

We all go through bad stuff.

Everyone has their own stuff.

We are each the same.

Different frequencies, different intensities, different things. But all relative to our own experience.

And as such we are the same, in what we each navigate through on the wheel of emotions.

2020 has brought with it much change, which is exactly what I want, and I’m guessing you do too. But wow, it’s really testing me.

And today I looked at my calendar on the wall and it said.

You are stronger than you think.


I am.

I have been through severe bullying, wanting to leave the planet around age 8, bouts of depression requiring medication, eating disorders, exercise addiction, anxiety, panic attacks, recovery from all of the above, a stalker, my husband having his foot crushed and all the surgery and recovery that involves, my mum having a brain aneurysm and all the surgery and recovery that involves, a premature baby with medical issues who didn’t sleep for 2.5 years, a miscarriage, my dad being diagnosed with motor neurone disease, taking care of my dad and watching him fade away, his passing, having another baby with medical issues who also didn’t sleep, three car accidents and all the recovery that involves, personal long term health issues, chronic fatigue, chemical sensitivities, food sensitivities, a few years of cystic acne, working and studying whilst all of the above was happening and appearing to be ‘ok’, and the worst thing of all – living, believing that being myself in the world was quite simply, just plain wrong.

I know it’s a long list, and you know what, recently I let it go. I was at a friends place talking about some of it and I remember thinking in my head ‘what the hell Lauren, why are you still going on about all of this?’

Because holding on to the stories of our past isn’t really very constructive. It keeps us back there, and away from the current moment. There is no benefit sitting in the energy of the past.

But today after reading my calendar, I sit and reflect on the above as a reference point of my incredible strength, and I can appreciate just how true it is.

I remember after my dad passed, thinking that I could literally overcome anything, because that was the hardest time of my life. I felt so helpless, and his passing left what felt like the most enormous gaping void in my heart.

Much of the person I am today, is because these events led me to seek the truth and find the way back to myself.

I am stronger than I think.

I never gave up.

I kept going when it felt like I couldn’t breathe.

I kept going when it felt like my heart had shattered into a billion pieces.

I never stopped.

There was a knowing deep down inside of me that whispered quietly, and never gave up.

Because I got this.

And so do you.

When it feels like the path ahead starts falling away brick by brick.

When you’re not sure which way is up, down, forward or back.

Know that you are stronger than you think.

You got this.

Someone else has been there before. They found their way, and you will too.

That pain you’re feeling, you’re not alone.

If you can just trust for a moment, that life can be better.

Close your eyes, take a big breath in and sit into the energy of your heart. Can you hear that little whisper?

You are stronger than you think.

You can do anything.

You are magical.

You are a creator.

Have the courage to embrace the authenticity of you, the real you, the beautiful, infinite soul that knows no limits.

You are stronger than you think.

And the Universe is waiting for you to realise.

That the only thing standing between you and a world of infinite possibilities… is you.

It’s time.

Let’s stop together shall we?

To being limitless,
