Happy Memorial Day!
Today is a day of remembrance for the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. First of all, thank you to those reading this that have served our country. Second of all, thank you to those who have had friends or family serve.
In 2015, there were about 1.6 million people serving in the US military (www.bls.gov). There are 1.6 million people fighting for our cherished rights as Americans every single day. Can you picture 1.6 million people fighting for you? Standing behind you ready to battle anything that comes their way just to protect you? What if you had this type of personal military all the time?
What would your life look like if on a daily basis you had 1.6 million people backing you up? Really - let that sink in. Take a few minutes to close your eyes and picture this scene. Your own personal military. How does that feel? What would be different? What’s bubbling up in your mind?
For me, it’s a scene of all of these people - strong people, with good posture, exuberating confidence, steady but ready to act. They are quietly chanting “Kelsey! Kelsey!” and I feel limitless. Fighting for myself is an everyday occurrence. I constantly am at battle with meetings, schedules, to do lists, distractions, personal goals, relationship goals, etc. Consistently putting myself first and fighting for what is best for me is a conscious habit that must be practiced DAILY (sometimes by the minute!).
I believe if we were all to explore and exude our own personal power the world would be a better place. Wouldn’t it be amazing to be surrounded by a bunch of people who were truly fulfilled because they were invested in freeing themselves vs. living the same-old, same-old every day without a moment to stop and consider “is this what my heart really wants?”? There is beautiful freedom that comes with fighting for one’s dreams, desires and goals.
1.6 million people fighting every day for our freedom. When was the last time you fought for your own personal freedom? When was the last time you put “me” before “you”? Or heart before head? I am so inspired by the quiet, yet expansive, potential power that waits to be released within each and every one of you. It is my personal mission to awaken those who are ready to discover the power of choice and self-care!

I believe this is within you just waiting to be let go!

God Bless America!
