Powerful Words: The 3 E’s To Prosperity
Three E’s: Embrace, Evolve, and Experience.
We all have words that define our journeys. These words are the axis by which we explore the world, each one speaking to us different than the next.
Embrace your transition. Begin your healing process by learning to accept your current position. Keep in mind that where you are is not your final destination. Embracing my transition was the most difficult part. To give you a bit of background, I was engaged after being a long-term relationship and my wedding was called off just one month before I was supposed to get married. So when I say I know pain, trust me, I know pain.
It was a very traumatic situation and I didn’t know how I was going to get through it. In addition to being a certified life coach, I’m also a mother. One night while the situation was still fresh, my son who was a little over a year old at the time, gave me our first hug and at that moment, I knew that I couldn’t stay stuck in that state of sadness. I knew that I was going to have to push through my pain. I still had to tend to my son, I still had to go to work, I still had to live. I had to accept what had taken place and move on with my life. I was unclear about what was going to happen next, so all I could do was trust God and take things one day at a time.
Evolve your truth. What do you see when you view your reflection? What words do you use to describe yourself? Are they positive? If not, change your vocabulary. Evolving my truth was much easier than embracing my transition, but it was still a challenge. Evolving my truth meant changing the way I saw myself. It meant changing the way I spoke to and about myself. Ultimately, it meant forgiving myself and giving myself grace. Self-forgiveness is probably the most difficult part of the healing process after acceptance because there are constant reminders of what went wrong.
I would blame myself and rack my brain trying to think of what I did wrong and what I could have done to avoid the break up. But over time, something happened. I stopped blaming myself and I stopped trying to get an explanation. I no longer felt like the culprit or the victim. Eventually, I started to see the blessing and I realized that I was the blessing. I realized that there was greater for me. I realized that one man was not my last chance at love and happiness. Once I started realizing and truly believing these things, my entire outlook on life changed.
Experience your transformation. Once you overcome that thing, some people won’t know what to do with the new you. Make no apologies and don’t look back. Experiencing my transformation was the fun part. The scary part about it was that it was almost involuntary. I started speaking differently and I feel like I even started to look different. I started purging things that no longer served a purpose, including clothing and accessories. My taste in clothing and accessories had changed so it gave me an excuse to do some shopping!
I was becoming more organized, I developed an interest in learning new recipes, and I started drinking water more than any other beverage. I also developed an even greater interest in my feminine hygiene and maintenance. I started dropping old habits and forming new ones. I was becoming an even better mother. The best part was I started to hear from the Holy Spirit more clearly. He was giving me revelation and confirmation like never before. He started preparing me to become the woman I always admired and wanted to be.
