21 Mar Please Forgive Me and Welcome Back
We finished 40 days of starting out a great year and then…… what? Where did I go? What happened to our daily messages? I would like to say that this was a planned and orchestrated break on my part. That I was taking a little time to re-group, plan the next step, but all of that is untrue.
The truth is that I am just like you and I face all of the challenges of every day life that you do. Building and maintaining two businesses, building and maintaining a healthy beautiful body, finding my soul mate, finding my purpose and path and staying on it. Being engaged with my own growth and progress instead of giving in to my paradigms and just sitting on my ass, fat and happy in the status quo.
I have always had these patterns and have often succumbed to these….. in my family we call them “funks”, sometimes for many months. An increase in self-awareness and learning to be a deliberate creator has allowed me to shorten and manage these episodes. Without medication. Unless you count varying amounts of alcohol throughout the years.
Anyway. I’m back. I feel great, I’m in love with my life and on track again. I am grateful for my coaches, master mind partners and friends for helping me with this. And this is what it looks like, folks. Sometimes our dreams have to drag us out of our old lives, kicking and screaming and leaving fingernail marks on the status quo. But if we just keep looking in that direction, the result must be the same.
We get what we give our attention to. 90% of us will not absorb this lesson and will look back at our lives with a lot of regret.
I’m going back to a daily message. I considered a weekly newsletter instead, but a whole month went by and I didn’t get it done. I am discovering that for me, baby steps, short messages, short projects are the thing, while I exercise my big project, follow through muscles.
So this is the first day. I promise to go back to the short, sweet, easy to absorb and think about messages. I love you for still being here with me.
