Green Lights

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Sometimes we don’t immediately recognize the green lights we get in life.

Mostly because we aren’t ready to move forward.

The green light might be flashing in front of us for days months or even years

and it’s only because of the right timing and circumstances that we see

what has been there for quite some time.

That’s the beauty of a green light–it patiently gives us the go ahead

ready when we are.

On Being Liked & What Mom Thinks

Sunday, July 20th, 2014

If you are living your life like the rest of us you probably hope that most of the people you are close to in your life actually like you. Everyone else – you’re not too bothered by whether they like you or not.

The thing you may be more concerned about with casual acquaintances is their approval rating. How do you rank with them in terms of the decisions you make, the way you do your work, etc.

None of us may want to admit it; but walking around in daily life, we look for approval. Maybe not so much that we’ve got to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the things we do are acceptable but more that what we do is in line with what other people would do if they were in our shoes.

I was talking with my mom awhile back and she let me know that she thinks  my life is too fast paced and that I will wear myself out in no time at all.

I would like to say that what she had to say didn’t bother me but the reality is this is mom and what she says makes a difference to me.

So I told her that she’s right, my life is fast paced because I have  a new business (now with it two years–still new) and have to learn lots of new information and remember what I already know. She’s saying okay, I see, uh huh. But I know she still thinks I’m too busy.

I took note of what she said and will think about things I can do to give me more time to relax.

After all, this is mom talking. She may not like my chosen career (she says she wouldn’t work in sales on a bet) and she may not completely understand why I’m doing it but she respects that I made the decision to do it.

On wanting to be liked–I’d rather be liked than hated but when it gets right down to it, being liked by others is nice but I’d rather be liked by me and those close to me which Mom is among those at the top of that list.

When You Exit a Relationship Door Opens for A New One

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

Even though you leave a partner, when you exit the relationship there is a void to fill and it can take a long while to recover.  Whether the relationship was a healthy or destructive one the feeling of love for this person stays with you.

Over time the sorrow pain anger and frustration of having been in this relationship and having it end will soften. With the right attitude you will move forward with strong insight from having been part of it.

What determines growth is acceptance of the circumstances that led you to leave. You knew and still know that in order to live a healthy happy life you had to leave a person that you truly loved.

The victory is that you loved. Each of us who have been moved by love know that it leaves traces on the heart. Memories of love stay with us and long after the fire burns out marks are left as proof that loved existed. To deny that love existed keeps you in denial. Accepting that love was there helps you move forward.

Many times the end of one love prepares for a new healthier one;  a new door opens that may not have been available to you otherwise.

A Little Not Ready

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think that’s how you grow.When there’s that moment of  ‘Wow, I’m not really sure I can do this,’ and you push through those moments, that’s when you have a breakthrough.

I have so much trouble starting a new task.

I fear it!!

Afraid I’ll mess it up but more afraid that it may involve more than I anticipated.

Tasks that bother me the most are ones that are new to me which have been many as of late.

I’ve been trying to be easy on myself by saying things like–

stay steady

Rome wasn’t built in a day

Take it one step at a time

Yesterday was one of those days. I knew I had to get a pile of stuff done that was on my desk. I also knew I had to keep the perspective to do one thing at a time.

So here’s how it went:

Take a deep breath

Okay, do the first thing. Okay got it.

Do number two–wasn’t so hard, check that one off.

Okay now STOP! Take a break, come back to it.

As the pile became thinner I could breathe a sigh of relief and see that I’d made enough progress to call it a night so I did.

It’s never easy to feel behind–at least for me that is something I don’t do well with. But the thing is, doing something, even if it’s not conquering everything all at once is very comforting. It’s a feeling I can live with knowing that what didn’t get done will get done–one step at a time.
