How much can you do ?

//How much can you do ?

It amazes me how we have the tendency to limit ourselves. Some many time we think we can do only what we are use to do and when a challenge ” out of the ordinary” show up we feel overwhelmed. If only we knew that we can do much more ….

As an example, as a mother who travels a lot cross Atlantic , 6 years ago, I had to embrace the challenge of flying 12 hours on my own with a baby. At that time I felt very overwhelmed and I felt that the challenge was huge and I was very stressed. Later on my baby became a Toddler and started to crawl and walk in the aisles of the plane. I thought that this was much more difficult than flying with a baby but I did it.

Well I went from Flying with a baby to flying with a Toddler, and then a Toddler and a baby and today I flew from LA to Paris on my own with a 6 years old, a 4 year old and a 7 months baby. In the past I have been on the verge of emotional crisis before getting in the plane but this time I just trusted that I could do it. It saved me a huge amount of stress.

I guess the past experience helped me a lot in creating this confidence but I truly believe that even the first time I had all the skills to embrace the challenge. I wish I had believed in me !

    This reminds me of a quote that is often attributed to Nelson Mandela but happen to be written by Marianne Williamson.

    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
    Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
    It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
    We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?
    Actually, who are you not to be?
    You are a child of God.
    Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
    There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so
    that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
    We are all meant to shine, as children do.
    We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
    It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone.
    And as we let our own light shine,
    we unconsciously give other
    people permission to do the same.
    As we are liberated from our own fear,
    our presence automatically liberates others.”
