Actually I know January 1st doesn’t come for another 7 weeks but I just had a birthday and that means a new year in my world.
As I reflect on the past year, that went way too quickly, I see that a lot has changed. I am now working full time doing a job (SNAP Outreach) that I love (yay!) and working on my business (Health Coaching & Writing) that I also love (yay!). While last year saw me saying YES to everything, this year has become the year of NO.
I realized this week that I don’t have to do everything that comes my way. That I have the freedom to pick and choose the projects I want to work on and do them well. I’ve decided to take a break until the other New Year to focus on what I want and can do; and it felt great not having a deadline looming this week.
I think nothing says self reflection more than that, we have to listen to our souls and if something does not feel right then be honest, most likely we won’t do it well and it will suck the energy out of us.
I know that many people feel that they don’t have a choice, yes we all have bills to pay. You can control a lot more than you think. You are the master of your domain.
