Discovering your Greater Self
By Jamie Reklau
Do you ever wonder about that person deep within you that you know exists, but have yet to discover?
You know what I am talking about.  I’m taking about that greater person, hiding, that person you know has so much more potential to offer you and the world around you, that person you have ignored.  We all have it.  I know I’ve been guilty!  We all have greater capabilities and more to offer ourselves, our lives and our surroundings.
Have you ever really asked yourself why you have chosen not to discover your greater self?
Is it fear?  The fear of what you are really capable of?
Perhaps you feel underserving?
Or there is the possibility that you may feel incapable of achieving whatever it is that is hiding inside?
Maybe you have thoughts such as …
“I could never do that, I don’t fall into that classification.”
“I’m just not good enough”
“My age is an issue, it doesn’t pay”
“Why bother, what if I fail?”
“I have no motivation at this point”
I know for myself, these quotes are not very uplifting.  Try changing them around and aim for some golden, more positive thinking, which in return will give you a more inspired feeling inside.
“I could totally do that!  There are no limits holding me back!”
“I am completely good enough, I believe in myself!”
“I have a lot to offer this world, I release all limitations!”
“I now control my fear and fear no longer controls me, my possibilities are endless!”
“I feel empowered and alive, choosing to take control of my actions bringing me to my highest good!”
I am sure after reading the second set of thoughts and affirmations the feelings flowing through you are more pleasant.  Perhaps you have gained a new perspective, new idea, found a glimmer of hope you didn’t have before, and maybe, just maybe you have just started the journey of discovering your greater self!
In the last year I gained a new perspective on something that I want to share with you.  Let’s go back to that first round of negative thoughts, specifically the last one…
“I have no motivation at this point.”
I used to say this all the time.  “It’s just not the right time”, “I don’t have the motivation for that yet”, “I’m not ready”, yes, I too said all of these things, and more!  Let’s be real, it’s called being human, right?  It’s true, but is this REALLY the label we want to give to humanity?  I say not.  We have all been put here to do something phenomenal! Yes, that means YOU TOO! Yes we all fall short sometimes, however we all have the choice to dig deeper and rise again!
I ‘m confessing, I had a rude awakening when I came across one of my now, all-time favorite speakers, Mel Robins.  Wow did she bust my ass! I am not afraid to admit it.  She is honest, raw, and has this amazing capability of saying what everyone else is thinking, yet too afraid to say.  She also says some things that light people on fire and make them question things.  She is blunt, honest and she has inspired me on so many levels. One concept of hers really hit home for me.  She said it, I became mad, angry and thought it was a bunch of crap.  The reality is, she was right, and she was calling me out on one of my biggest issues and it was hard for me to admit. She states…
“Motivation is Garbage! You are never going to feel like it!” –Mel Robbins
In one of her speeches she goes on to say,
“You just make the choice to do it and you go for it! Our bodies are not designed to be uncomfortable, we have to push through that part.”
Wow, she is spot on! Some of the most challenging things in life make us the most uncomfortable but also are the most rewarding!  Keep it real, you know this is true.
“DO IT NOW, SOMETIMES LATER NEVER COMES”

Walt Disney also states…
“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
–Walt Disney-
Now take that quote, change it up and say this out loud to yourself…
“All of MY dreams WILL come true, because I have the courage to pursue them.”
Embrace this, believe it, own this, and really take time to feel how you feel when you speak this statement.  Say it out loud, pay attention to the things you think when you hear yourself speak positive.  It can change your entire perspective within.   Believe this!
Allow yourself to feel Inspired to reach new Aspirations in your life!
One of the biggest lessons I have learned personally, is how we view ourselves and how we talk to ourselves is one of the largest reasons we suppress our greatest inner being. There is no one else in this world holding you back, only you, and how you treat yourself and the choices you make.
Take some time and think about the negative things you say to yourself and how you view yourself on a daily basis.  Ask that person inside some of these questions…
“Would I talk to my best friend this way?”
“How am I benefitting myself by talking so negatively to the one person I have to be with daily?”
“How is your negative self-talk stopping you in your life?”
“How would it feel to really release the negative self-talk and begin to love yourself completely?”

Tippy Toe Tattle Tale? What?!

Welcome to my updated blog!
I have been playing with ideas and scheming for about 6 months on how I want to refresh and present my blog.  I knew I wanted it to be fun & catchy, have a bit of a description on how I will predominantly blog, yet somehow, in an underlying way, tie it to part of what I do.  After many many lists, interchanging words, boring, funny and dumb ideas, here I am!
...
Remember when you were a kid and you would tippy toe around because you either wanted to be sneaky, or there was something going on that you really wanted to run from or stay away from? …and guys, don’t think this is just a chic thing either. Haha!  You all know you were sneakier that us girls most times, tippy toes or not!  If I remember correctly, there was always a “tattle tale” in the group as well.  😲😛
... Well, here I am, I decided to bring an adult tattle tale version back into the mix of the Blogging community!  The truth is, we all tippy toe around stuff!  Why do we do this? Many reasons, c…

Let's talk about crying...

Crying…We were born crying!!


How do you feel thinking about the word crying? I am sure you have many mixed feelings about it. 
So many individuals “Tippy Toe” around crying, because most of us were taught it is a shameful thing. 
I don't know about you, but I am really NOT a fan of crying, perhaps for the reason I just stated? But not all crying feels shameful… like the kind of crying that is joyful. The calm peaceful and content celebration of pure joy and happiness that tears are shed.OR… laughing so hard I cry, and even then, sometimes I feel like an ass because I am usually the one that thinks something is waaaay more funny than it actually is!  
How it goes for me in a group when laughter takes over and I get stuck in my head with my perspective on the said humor: Something funny is said or done, I’m in my own space laughing kinda hard, while everyone else is kinda chuckling.  Then I get in my head and think… “Wow, Jamie you are looking like an ass!  It's really not that funn…

Persistence Over Perfection ... Are You The Most Important Project In Your Life?

Persistence over perfection
Are you the most important project of your life?

These are two statements that have come to me in the last week while doing Mel Robins 50 Day confidence challenge.They didn’t necessarily come from Mel herself, they came from outside sources that caught my attention.This challenge has triggered something in my brain to absorb information in a different way.Maybe it is how I process it? Maybe my desire to look deeper has been enlightened?I really don’t have the exact answers, and really, it is irrelevant.
This is what matters.These are 2 very small statements that hold a ton of power. How do YOU feel about these statements?I know when I look at them, I can see I have work to do.I look at them and I find myself feeling a bit of shame, a little let down, and there is a bit of heaviness within myself. Reality.It feels shitty!It’s just not a great feeling no matter how I examine them! That’s just the simple truth.Doesn’t’ pay to ignore it because it will still be th…
