Recently, one of my clients said that she chose to work with me because I remind her of someone.
“Who’s that?” I asked.
If you don’t know, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a show on Netflix about a young woman who was kidnapped as a teenager and held captive in an underground bunker for 15 years with 3 other women. Finally, she’s rescued and begins her fish-out-of-water life in New York City.
Did I mention it’s a comedy?
Oh, and it’s got an amazing theme song.
Our bubbly personalities?
Our love of 90s slang? As if!
The fact that our clothes are almost exclusively yellow and pink?
Nope. My client explained that me and Kimmy share a fearless determination despite surviving horrific childhoods.
As Kimmy says, “The worst thing that ever happened to me happened in my own front yard. Life beats you up… You can stand up and say, ‘We’re different. We’re the strong ones, and you can’t break us!’”
I have a similar way of looking at the challenges I face.
The worst thing that will ever happen to me in my life has already happened.
Seriously, nothing in this world could be as bad as what I’ve lived through. Fear can’t hurt me. And I won’t let it slow me down.
All Life Editors are unbreakable (that means you too!). We look at the rough draft of our lives and realize we’re not broken.
We just need a little editing to become our best selves.
We can be thankful for the blessings we do have, delete what drains us, add all the good things that have been missing, rearrange everything to find our perfect flow, and treat our self-care as sacred.
Of course there will be setbacks and confusion and failures.
But we CAN go on.
We can pull it together.
We can get up again no matter how many times we’re knocked down.
