One reason I just love my blogging community is because of the support, encouragement, advice, and yes, even the needed kick in the ass we give each other.
The other day I decided to whine write about being stuck and not really knowing how to get unstuck. The advice I got was AWESOME.
“Listen to the voice who knows what you want.”
“Change can unfold slowly…”
“Create a plan and commit to the plan.”
“What you want also wants you.”
“Change your thoughts and you change your life.”
“Cultivate trust, resilience, and patience with the transition…” (Patience being the key word for me!)
“When you are ready there will be no obstacle in your way. You are just not ready yet.”
“Let Go of Your FEAR! You are getting in your own way” (Thanks for the kick in the arse Tess!!)
And this last piece from John at Women Like Me helped me re-frame. The seas parted, rain fell up, and a thousand light bulbs went off in my head.
“You don’t go to work to make a difference, you go to work to get on with your life.”
Exactly. Richard said the same thing to me the other night…only my ego RESISTED his words because by golly, I should make a difference at work. I’ve been attached to a thought, a false belief that has wrapped me around the axle for a few years. Today, I proudly proclaim,
It’s. No. Longer. Useful.
Work is a thing I do while I build a new structure that keeps me balanced inside and out.
I feel like a new woman today. Thanks to all of YOU!
