A Time For Personal Reflection

This is a departure from my usual post but I wanted to share some things that I have been going through lately. For the past few months I have been really thinking and trying to work on me and some of my old mindsets. I was getting to a point in my life where I knew I wasn’t where I wanted to be and I had moved away from things that I use to enjoy.

I was starting to be frustrated and stressed. This started to affect my relationships with families and friends. So I set out to make changes. I knew that a year from now I didn’t want to be in the same place. I started making intentional efforts to accomplish goals that I had and results I wanted to see, not only in my business, but my personal life also.

Moment of Truth

I finally had to realize that no one was holding me back but myself. I had to do the work and push through. I had step outside of my comfort zone.

I often find that my clients struggle with the same types of things where they are trying to do everything at once and feel like they are on a never ending treadmill. My best advice is to slow down and really take time to reflect and be honest with yourself about what is working and what isn’t.

Be grateful for the things that do work and then actually do the work to make changes in the areas that aren’t working. That is what I am doing now and I feel so much better. I have gotten back to journaling and forgiving myself if things don’t go according to plan.
