So my first session is actually 3 sessions in one, designed to REFLECT, REALIGN and deliver RESULTS. I like the sound of that.
2016 was a howler for so many reasons and it’s fair to say that I did completely lose direction and my sense of self so I’m looking forward to getting back on track and shifting some of the negative thoughts, emotions and patterns that have become so inherent and deep set in my business and personal behavior and interactions. I think the word I’m looking for is “doormat”. Even my mum called me a “mug” at one point last year. Harsh Beryl, harsh but I didn’t argue with you so that was pretty revealing!
Knock back after knock back on the work front and being made to feel that you are just not valued is so demeaning and debilitating to your sense of self worth, even when you ultimately know that you deliver a great service and have faith in your own talents. Still, it’s easy to lose sight of that when your confidence is in tatters.
So this programme and this session have come at just the right time as I embark on a new business in a new office with new clients in 2017. Bring it on!
I have a new journal too ready to document all my goals and ensure I keep myself focused and aligned. And of course, I’ll be blogging all about it, warts and all! Its such a cathartic process.
I’m eager to really understand what it is that’s important to me after all.
Is it really designer shoes and handbags? I think not – I had to sell most of those last year and have I missed them? Well, maybe the pink Mulberry yes but really, no.
What does my ideal life and lifestyle look like? You don’t normally have time to even ask yourself those questions and they are such important questions otherwise, really, what’s the point? Here today and gone tomorrow.
Some of you might think I’m being selfish and self indulgent in under taking this challenge but I think it will help me to grow and be a better person for and to everyone around me. Including myself who is the one person that I neglect the most.
The great news is that you’re never too old to hit the re-set button and don’t we all deserve the life we want. Even if we are 45!!! This is all part of me being and staying fabfitforty and creating my #fabfiternity to share my experiences with you all.
So the final part then is obviously going to be about ACTION! Getting the results you want requires a plan. A clear and laser focused plan and in order to do that, you need to give yourself the time and space to sit down, free of stress and to map that all out.
I’m looking forward to getting stuck into this session and documenting my progress and coming out of my “cat”acomb (see what I did there!) a beautiful flourishing butterfly in 30 days time!
