The Power to Choose – Reflection and Response:
What does success look like for you?
A bright blue sky Spring/Summer kinda day where gentle breezes rustle through my hair as I sit leaning against a tree on green soft grass writing/exploring/connecting; creating space for others to become more deeply empowered and connected to their own deep Truth and incredible abilities.
Ok, seriously. A bullet list:
- Freedom to set at least 75% of my daily work schedule according to my own innate energy and creative clocks
- Being able to pay all of my bills, save money for future security and goals, and enjoy fun activities both locally and, occasionally, farther from home.
- Knowing what I do truly makes the world a better place.
- Ability to choose who I work with and in what formats I work with them.
- Always, always, ALWAYS being able to feel peace and pride when I describe how I earn my living and invest my time/energy.
If you could chose the life you want, describe the life you would choose…
Waking snuggled in the arms of my love; enjoying a soft sleepy smile shared followed by a softer good morning kiss.
Lazing in bed pondering my day ahead, creating a vision for it, renewing my intention to stay centered in Love and Truth.
Praying over my altar (items) … again, centering myself in my intention and in Love and Truth.
Coffee, Facebook connecting, morning skylight in my window, kitten mewing, freshly washed hair and clean, comfy clothes.
Reviewing the day’s outline and discerning my next steps: answering a client email? tackling a bit of paperwork? prepping the evening’s dinner? tidying up my workspace?
Writing. Solid. Honoring my developing craft by giving it my undivided attention.
A break. A breathing space.
Movement: hooping? ‘exercise’? gardening? walking?
Writing. Solid. Honoring my calling to connect and support, to share and instruct, to be brave and honest.
Lunch. No electronic distractions. Just sitting and focusing mindfully on enjoying the blessing of a meal savored.
A client connection. One on one. Two Spirits reaching across the divide to explore as one seeks growth, a deepened sense of the Sacred in life and the other seeks to release contracting fears of being ‘not enough’ for this work she is called to more fully engage in and boldly proclaim.
A break. A breathing space.
Welcoming home my son and my love; reconnecting with them separately and together after a day spent apart.
A welcome home kiss. A story about someone’s day. A laugh (or a somber share). Reconnecting.
Dinner. A game played? Conversations that meander and explore, provoke and invite thought, build and honor Love? A showed watched together? A evening spent on separate pursuits with occasional moments of connection while two fiercely in love and fiercely independent Spirits seek their own outlets?
Falling asleep snuggled in the arms of my love; enjoying a soft sleepy smile shared followed by a softer good night kiss.
What are the most important things you want to make happen in your life and career?
What is the single greatest obstacle that is preventing you from accomplishing your goals?
My fear of being ‘not enough’, of embarrassment if I fail, of being a ‘one-hit-wonder’…
