So I know this is a well used phrase "When the going gets tough...." but what does this really mean?? I often wonder just how "tough" I need to be to get through the "tough" times. And even more than this what about receiving help during the "tough" times?? So I have decided that the "tough" part that "gets going" has a different meaning for me than just getting harder or more to the point harder on myself which is sometimes what I do!! I have decided that this "tough" means that I need to have more faith and determination to make a success out of my life, to persevere when I feel down and despairing and to receive help when I most need it. To feel worthy of this life as I want it to be not as I feel I have to accept it to be. To reach deep inside and find the love and hope that will sustain me during the "tough" times so I will believe that my contribution to this planet and its beings is important and meaningful. That I can take care of myself and be abundant, that I can be happy doing what I love doing and pay the bills, that I will see the light within me and share it with others to illuminate their lives and watch them shine in the lives of those they meet. To be the change I want to see in this life and bring happiness and joy to everyone I meet. This is the "tough" that I am willing to bring forth and I will not cease in believing that this is a life I create where joy and happiness, abundance and success is an everyday occurrence. So lets get going everybody!!!! What is your "tough" commitment to yourself and your life??? Post your ideas and let me know!!
So I finally left my "day job" and have committed myself to the passion of helping people find their passions and their purpose. And while this has been exhilarating I find that I am checking the calendar and the clock quite a few times a day to see what is happening....Which tells me two things, one I am still on 9-5 time and I have few things going on in my life!! What happened to working full-time and having a life of fun and friends?? Well raising my son for the last 18 years I think took a bit more out of me than I had thought!! But this is truly an opportunity to see what patterns I have adhered to for so long and create changes!! My son graduated from High School this past June and (big sigh of relief) he is on his way to finding his life and way which means that now I have to focus on ME!!! YIKES!! Not sure I am up for this type of self scrutiny but I have moments where I just sit and imagine a new life and I get a little fluttery in my stomach and a smile creeps across my face and I feel all warm and alive. It is a slow process but I am seeing light streams in the tunnel of eternal darkness that was my previous work life. Things are changing and so am I and I am ready and willing to show up for this new life no matter what turns it takes or challenges it may throw at me. And I know that joy and fun are part of the recipe as well otherwise I probably would still be doing that other job instead of my passionate, scary but oh so exciting new living!! Take a chance on yourself and live the life you want to live. And if you need a cheerleader, call me I will help you find the road and make sure you have plenty of water and snacks to keep you going.
Cheers to us finding our way of JOY!!!!
