Posted @withrepost • @lindsey_walenga Balancing on a rock, in the wind, wearing 4” heels...this is a story so many of us know. I’m always amazed at the parallel between physical and emotional challenges.⁣
.⁣
Up on this rock I’m stretched to my limit and giving it everything I have. The mere fact that I’m surviving this should be impressive on its own, but I can’t help wondering if I could be doing more. Could my leg be higher? My back arched more gracefully? What are the bystanders thinking? Doubt quickly surfaces while I’m up there alone.⁣
.⁣
In this position it’s easiest to keep my head down and focus on the ground. I feel safer that way. But the ground isn’t what I’m reaching for, so I push myself to look up and face the wide open space in front of me.⁣
.⁣
With my eyes on the sky, balancing immediately becomes harder. I tilt from one side to the other, shaky and a little scared that I’m going to fall and break something important.⁣
.⁣
It’s tough not to let fear takeover. When it does, I fall every time. But other times, like this one, I remember to breathe. I take big, cleansing, loud breaths and listen closely as the air swirls around my body. The moment my attention goes to my breath, my balance returns. I’m steadier and stronger while I do this hard thing.⁣
.⁣
Now that I’m calm, I can stay as long as I like, and gently let go whenever I need to. I can jump down off this rock and rejoin the girls who were standing behind the camera, cheering me on. One of them yells, “Damn! I’m going to leave my husband for her!” 😂 Thanks girl, for the support and the comic relief.⁣
.⁣
When we stretch this far, we naturally doubt ourselves. I doubt myself all the time. But when we pick up our heads and remember to breathe, our balance returns and then we believe.⁣
.⁣
I’ve got this. And so do you. ✨

“There are two paths ahead. You can follow the inertia of decades past when communicating was much simpler, or you can square your shoulders to the truth: Your stakeholders are different than they were years ago, and that means your approach needs to be different, too.” - @lindsey_walenga ⁣
