As I woke with the sunrise at 0512 a couple of mornings ago I watched the rays illuminate the world, and my bedroom, and I asked myself ‘ what needs to be illuminated in my life? ‘ and now I have answer…
For me, as for so many of us, the last 15/18 /whatever months have been about surviving, about getting through the days and nights and weeks of pandemic and lockdown and all that last year brought us, and not truly about thriving. I have indeed survived, but during some recent personal development training I realised I felt a buzz of excitement about my life / work for the first time in a long long time. Actually Excited with a capital E 🙂
I felt a huge sense of possibility. And I am now following that trail, as I want life to excite me and not leave me feeling drained and overwhelmed and often fatigued. I am only 62( and a half!) and it is not too late to make some life changes. My life has been a series of changes, with some challenges along the way, and I want to continue making choices for myself and not wait for life to happen ‘to’ me.
I have commited to some further training as an Emotional Wellbeing Coach, ultimately so that I am more able to support others in their wellbeing, and this means first looking at my own emotional wellbeing. This training will be taking place during July and August, starting next weekend.
I want to dive in to my inner self again, and discover once more, what it is I need to help me feel like I am truly thriving and living my best life – what do I need more of and what do I need less of ?
The best way I can love and support myself right now is to pause, to step back a little, to come to a temporary halt.
I am going to be looking at my life and my business, which are of course deeply connected, and see what arises, I am eager to gain clarity on and to progress my plans for my ‘ one wild and precious life’.
Part of this is looking at how I am using my time in this ‘one wild and precious life’. Part of it will be letting go of some things and making space for others.
And so, I am intending to place my business on a Pause, and take no new clients other than commitments I already have , and I am going to Pause my social media activity for a wee while also. I love reading about the lives of friends and feeling a connection and sharing my own life too, and, of late I am finding social media quite noisy and if I am not careful I am finding it drowning out my own thoughts.
wrt Facebook, I won’t be posting or commenting for a while, though I will keep messenger open and will check messages regularly. There are a couple of groups I participate in and I will still be there, I will be quietly leaving other groups . I may post some nature /sunrise / sunset photos on Instagram , and I may not ❤
See everyone in August sometime 🙂
( and I expect to return with a Business offering which currently has a working title of ‘ Fill up your own teapot, before pouring out your energy to others’ ; if you are interested in joining a waiting list to hear more about this in a few weeks, please comment or private message me,thank you)
