ARE YOU WAITING FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO RAISE YOU UP?

ARE YOU WAITING FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO RAISE YOU UP?

I have been waiting all of my life for someone to raise me up. Almost 58 years for someone to do a job that was always mine! Only now, and I do mean RIGHT NOW, just before I sat down to write this, have I realized how IMPOSSIBLE that is.

Today I started taking part in an Emotional Rescue Challenge. The class today was 1.5 hours and I learned a lot. I tell you this because I think that the time spent listening to this lecture today was in some way responsible for the aha moment I just had. The learning I did earlier today is responsible for my coming to this realization right now, 10:30 PM EST!!

THE RIGHT TIME

I know that we learn things in the right time, at the right time, when our psyche is darn good and ready.  Some lessons are hard to learn and this lesson is certainly one I have taken a lifetime to learn.  Despite numerous self-help books, courses and a lot of listening to Josh Groban, You Raise Me Up, I am only now getting this.

As a child, I looked to my parents to raise me up and they did so appropriately.

Then, as a sibling, I looked to my sisters and brother to raise me up.

Next, as a wife, I looked to my husband to raise me up.

Also as an employee, I looked to my boss to raise me up and as a boss I looked to my employees to raise me up.

Finally, as a mother, I looked to my daughter to raise me up!

I have always been in pursuit of someone or something else to make me feel good.

ARE YOU WAITING FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO RAISE YOU UP?

I do not know if this is a common experience. I wonder if you too have been waiting a long time to have someone or something else raise you up? Has coming from a large family and/or my position in that family contributed to the length of time this lesson has been roaming around in my brain waiting for the right moment to be assimilated into my being? I do not know how your sib-line, upbringing, past story or current events play into your learning of this lesson.

What I do now know is that my brain, heart and my soul are telling me this now … NO ONE ELSE IS EVER GOING TO BE ABLE TO RAISE ME UP. THIS IS MY JOB!!

Yes ME! Also you! Each and every one of us is responsible for raising up, lifting up, holding up our self and no one else can do this for us! We are responsible.

It is our responsibility to know HOW GOOD WE ARE. We are responsible for knowing we are WORTH LISTENING TO. We are responsible for the foundation of our soul and how that makes us feel BIG, WORTHY, KNOWING and ALIVE!!

Thank you for reading my late night musings. I am thrilled to share with you what I have just now figured out.
