___ “One day or day one. You decide.” ~ Paulo Coelho ___ ___
Today’s the day I cut ties with past stories and create a new life based on an elevated sense of love and worthiness.
Coincidentally, it is the last day I will be writing a blog post from SupportMatters.com, as I lay to rest this current website.
It served its purpose for the theme of the coaching business I started 20 years ago. Now, I have reinvented myself, and my business, to “Coach for a new world,” with a stronger focus on living from love, which is the best healer of all.
I thank all those who were my “teachers,” both those who mentored me and those who triggered deep pain from all the old ways I let myself be disrespected or abandoned. Had it not been for those others who caused so much angst, I may have never spent long periods in solitude, reflection and healing to rewrite my story—and bring you a new platform from which to do the same.
I also am sorry if I hurt others from times when I was less conscious or absorbed in my own trials that seemed incredulous. It is my intent going forward to be more present to those placed before me, listening more with love and curiosity, while also discerning when to set appropriate boundaries of self-love and respect.
No more “one day” waiting for circumstances to be more perfect.
Today’s the day I announce my new platform with you, called ClaimYourWorthiness.com. I will be sharing rich, new content that helps you claim your worthiness to live, love, prosper and dream in new ways—based on these past eight years of extensive, advanced trainings and intuitive insights I gained from going inward, at depth.
Please note: The website is not live yet, so you cannot connect to it. Taking one site down and putting another one up is requiring some last minute finagling of final tweaks. I see this brief time of disconnect as a space between letting go of the old and welcoming the new, just as there is often a temporary void with most healthy transitions in life. I’ll be sending an email blast when the new site is ready.
Part of living in worthiness is shining our light, and choosing to be visible as our authentic selves. No excuses. It takes courage to upgrade, push through fear of rejection, or attack from others. In fact, underlying the fear of success is often a subconscious, limiting belief that we will end up alone (reinforced by that old saying, “It’s lonely at the top.”).
Sometimes there is a temporary loneliness and discomfort as we upgrade our lives, as so eloquently described in the book, The Big Leap: Conquer Your Hidden Fears and Take Life to the Next Level by Gay Hendricks.
Today, as a further declaration of my new life, I’m sharing with you a sneak peek at my profile video, which will be placed on the home page of ClaimYourWorthiness.com when it goes live later this month.
I welcome your feedback:
I trust I will build a new tribe that joins me in this journey of expansion and joy. I hope you will be part of it.
Together we are stronger.
With love and gratitude,
P.S. Please update your contact list to allow your email to accept my new blog posts that will be coming from GailJones@ClaimYourWorthiness.com.
Judy Miller, a dear friend and skilled photographer, took the above picture at the Phoenix (AZ) Ballon Race last year. She says the words on the side of the balloon, which cannot be read from afar, say “God bless.” What a perfect send-off, as I launch a new platform.
