Living Your Best Life

Change is in the air!
Happy Spring Tribe!
I don’t know if it’s the new spring weather, the sudden loss of Jonathan’s brother’s at age 54, family members living with cancer, friends with the new news of cancer or the stress of this freaking pandemic...maybe a little of all of it...but I am feeling CLEAR that a few things in my life get to change.
I’ve been meditating on WHAT IS THAT change?!
One thing that gets to change is where I fall on the priority list. Thus, the mind, body, spirit challenge that I’m doing right now...I’m a supporter and full-on encourager by nature and I get to nurture myself, not just work all the time and focus on others. (Let’s just say that the pandemic brought out the breakdowns and thus my work shot up over the past year!)
I get to have a few new rules in my life around when I check my phone or connections with others, not before 10 am CST on weekdays! I shut off all my notifications more than a year ago and it is blissful! Thinking about taking some of the apps off my phone or at least moving them to the last page.
Why is this important to me?
Because every yes I say is a no to something or someone else. I am getting clearer on my best YESES and my no’s. (For some of you this may not be an issue, but I’ve been living like a people pleaser for more years than not! So it’s a brave move for me.)
One of the techniques that has helped me is to make a list of everything that I do or give my time to and check to see if they are still a HELL YES. If not, they are a no. (No such thing as Hell maybe, right?!!)
I reviewed my list to see where my “energy leaks” are. And then I’m speaking up and bowing out. And so far it has been greeted with admiration, acceptance and often joy!
I see a slow down in my future...I get to stop with all the crazy, running doing...and just BE. I’m creating a new kind of summer for myself. Stay tuned as I get clear on what that is and as it unfolds.
I declare: This week I am going to start with a fresh new slate on Canva and create my brand new, fresh, sizzling with excitement vision board! I’ll let you know what I come up with.
➡What gets to change for you in this new season we are headed into?
➡What new “Hell, Yeses” do you have in your life? Any new no’s?
➡Anyone want to create a refreshed vision board? (send me a copy of yours and I’ll share mine when it’s ready!) I’m not teaching a vision board workshop just wanted to plant the idea that it’s ok to create a new MID-YEAR vision board if your vision has shifted!
Am I all alone here with new beginnings and closing some chapters?
As always, I’d love to hear from you...
