I have to admit, I have been struggling! Not easy for me to admit. I tend to look from the outside, I have it all together. But that is why I am here! I know I want to keep learning and growing. And why am I surprised when its not easy!
My word this week is persistence! How appropriate! In my mind, I thought every week would get easier, and I would be sailing through this class, with the time reading and investing in this class. Instead, my focus…..well lets just say, I wasn’t in my prime! No need to focus on the negative. Instead I will focus on how I am handling it.
I called out to two of my Master Mind Alliances! And boy, did they reach out, with lifelines that I am so grateful for. They both had great insight to different areas that I was struggling with. One presented me with their “gut feeling” what they felt was possibly going on in a situation/friendship. And I believe she was spot on, she gave me a different “twist” to what I thought may be going on. This enabled me to love and move forward with forgiveness and love.
The second mentor, gave me a couple tools to apply to my profession. Since my “old me” was used to being a on a strict schedule, by having an employer. The “new me”, I am the employer and I need to approach my life with new tools and expectations. One tool, she shared, was with the acronym – RACE. R=results What are my plans for the week, A=actions List and be clear and decisive, C=challenges There will be challenges, expect them, E=evaluate Be attentive at what I’m doing.
So again, the old blueprint was tugging me, pulling me down. But I refuse to go back, that would be death! I choose life! And know I know, as I “persist” with the new tools from this class and the input from my treasured master minds, I can be what I will to be!
