A few months ago my mentor in Arbonne had a vision retreat. I was in the midst of one of a series of life-defining events that catapulted me into rage, determination, and focus like no other. It was a respite from the craziness that had consumed my life, and I was deeply grateful for the trainings, inspiration, and passion that came from it.
I left there with inspired, determined action that I never believed I could do before. I didn’t know this would make this much of an impact on me, and spur into action that I never dreamed was possible. I finally understand momentum.
The definition of momentum according to the Oxford Dictionary is “the impetus and driving force gained by the development of a process or course of events.” Once you have it, and I have had it on a few different occasions before, it is both scary and exhilarating. It is exhilarating for obvious reasons. It is scary because momentum comes with certain expectations, especially if you capitalize on it. It goes back to my fear of success, which I wrote about before. It is about getting comfortable with being uncomfortable; going for it and not caring about failing, and most importantly, it is about showing yourself that you can conquer that fear of achievement.
The best part about momentum? It is Contagious. I am literally smiling all the time, and I can feel this hum inside of me. I am full of energy and excitement that threatens to cover everyone with glitter and unicorn dust. My determination born out of chaos, and the need to be responsible for my own environment has set my soul on fire. And I’m going to keep going in spite of my fears of success, vulnerability, and change until I get where I want to be.
