To Second Guess

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

You’ve decided on a goal, something you want to do or be. You’re excited and have done your due diligence and are confident enough to move forward. Then something happens, you become discouraged and start to second guess yourself.

It could be something small like a look or gesture from someone else. It could be a little bigger like another person telling you your idea won’t work or that there are too many others who have tried and failed. It could be something bigger like a test failure or failure to get a job interview.

It could be something much bigger like a financial setback or denial of a loan or rejected by a school program or employer.

It could be anything.

Just because you have a setback doesn’t mean your original plan was fraught with errors and it definitely doesn’t mean you should give up. It just means that following the path you’ve chosen is challenging and hard work.

Now is where it gets interesting. It’s time to buckle down and problem solve. There are ways to solve the problem that is currently standing in your way. Think of at least five ways to solve it. Map it out. Talk it out. Get the opinion of someone you trust who won’t discourage you.

Don’t give up!

Hard Work

Sunday, February 7th, 2016

Hard work will make you feel better.

The thoughts can be melancholy, the outlook bleak

but hard work will channel you in a productive manner

and bring results!

Never have too much time with nothing to do. When there is

too much idle time the mind dreams up things to think about that

are of little or no consequence in the grand scheme of things.

Destructive Construction

Sunday, August 2nd, 2015

We get into destructive relationships with other people places things

because we are looking for something outside ourselves that will make

us feel better about who we are. The construction of our being turns destructive.

We’ll feel better about who we are when we find what we need from within.

As we erect our solid foundation we are better equipped to contribute

to meaningful and rewarding relationships.

Other people add variety fun and emotional fulfillment.

They add spice and flavor.

You don’t need  people places and things who destroy what you’ve  constructed.

If you think you need what someone else has look deeper.

You have all you need.

We’re always going to be a work in progress.

We add onto take away from and fine tune our  state of being on a daily basis.

Keep the basic blueprint; it’s got you this far and won’t fail you.

Work Hard

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

Work hard for what you want because you’ll have to fight to get it.

If people criticize you believe in yourself anyway.

Take those critical words and think of them like rocks in a sling shot.

Sling them far away from you. Keep moving toward the positive.

Employment Opportunties for Women in Australia

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

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.
