Dream JOB

Have you ever seen your ‘dream job’ in an ad and get really excited about it. Well I have…I saw that ‘dream job’ this week and at first I didn’t fully appreciate the impact it would have on me. Nor did I ever imagine that I would be able to simply let it pass.

Which Way

You see the ‘dream job’, the one I saw advertised this week, the one that made my heart go giddy up, the one that made me stop and think…think about where I currently am and what it is that I really want out of life. It’s the ‘dream job’ for a different me and part of me mourns the loss of that her, because it means letting go of something that was so important to me and recognising that I have moved on. Its as though I am looking across at a parallel me…

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

~ The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost

I took the road less travelled and I am in fact living my dream, I am my own boss and I am able to create frameworks that enable people to be closer to where it is that they want to be, closer than they were yesterday. I love seeing my clients succeed!

So yes my heart skipped a beat and I got excited about a whole different set of possibilities and then I stopped, I paused and looked at all that I had and all that I have accomplished and I looked careful at who I am and you know what…I am living my dream.

And breathe…

Wow is it really 4th July 2017 already? Where has the time gone? This year seems to have moved even faster in the last few months than I could have anticipated, I’ve barely had time to take stock and breathe. In reality I haven’t taken the time, that I need, in order to give myself the space needed, to breathe, reassess and recalibrate…it has been go go go with a touch of burying my head in the sand.

So today while I sit in a beautiful space in Thailand, I am taking the time to reflect, reassess and recalibrate. I am being conscious of my breath and enjoying the stillness of the quietness of the moment that I have needed for so long.

Such a powerful blog! Thank you Mineral Sister for sharing!!! Forward is the only way to go.

Mineral Sister

It’s the beginning of a new year and everyone is setting themselves up for success and big goals and all types of personal development, but I am not quite there yet.

I’m getting there.

I know within my heart of hearts that this is going to be a breakthrough year for me.

I have plans and a vision and lots of ‘to do’ lists.  One of the first things on my list is to pay attention to myself and what I am feeling.

I grew up in one of those families that did not do feelings.  In fact, I was given a lot of flack for being the sensitive child that I was.

I spent a good part of my life hiding tears when I felt sad or even when a movie scene touched me.

I am now coming to terms with the fact that my emotions have a purpose…

Rebooting for 2017

So tomorrow is my birthday and I have been dreading the experience probably for the last 12 months or even more. I started 2016 with a death in the family and it’s ending that way as well…sometimes the cycle of life seems to be a challenge in itself. 2016 has brought with it lots of sorrow and lots of joy. It is so important to recognise that it’s the hard times, the moments of sadness that really enable us to appreciate those times of joy.

Perfect Date…..

Have you ever had that moment when you throw caution to the wind, when you forget that you’ve been hurt, when you just begin to pick up the pieces of a broken heart, stand on a beautiful beach just soaking up the sunshine and take that deep breath, releasing all the built up hurt and anger, taking in all that is wonderful about life and being thankful.

This was how my perfect date started…surrounded by friends and the sea, reconnecting and refocusing on all the possibilities. I am thankful for the journey and lessons that I’ve learned over the past three years and I’m thankful that that chapter of my life is finally over and I have the opportunity to begin a new chapter, a new journey.

Forgiveness….

Before I even start, I want to point out that we’re still in May and this is my second post for the month…getting better. So the last time I wrote I mentioned that I would be touching on ‘forgiveness’ in my next post…so here we are.

What amazes me, every time, is the power of forgiveness. Now, I’m not just talking about forgiving a partner, friend, colleague or family member, I’m talking about forgiving yourself. In truth, I find it a lot easier to forgive everybody else and then when it comes to my own faults or mistakes, I struggle to remember that I need to forgive me too. You see, I believe that forgiveness goes hand in hand with learning, developing, growing and moving forward to becoming a better person, as we all stumble…”for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

One of my favourite authors, Maya Angelou, once said:

“I don’t know if I continue, even today, always liking myself. But what I learned to do many years ago was to forgive myself. It is very important for every human being to forgive herself or himself because if you live, you will make mistakes- it is inevitable. But once you do and you see the mistake, then you forgive yourself and say, ‘Well, if I’d known better I’d have done better,’ that’s all. So you say to people who you think you may have injured, ‘I’m sorry,’ and then you say to yourself, ‘I’m sorry.’ If we all hold on to the mistake, we can’t see our own glory in the mirror because we have the mistake between our faces and the mirror; we can’t see what we’re capable of being. You can ask forgiveness of others, but in the end the real forgiveness is in one’s own self. I think that young men and women are so caught by the way they see themselves. Now mind you. When a larger society sees them as unattractive, as threats, as too black or too white or too poor or too fat or too thin or too sexual or too asexual, that’s rough. But you can overcome that. The real difficulty is to overcome how you think about yourself. If we don’t have that we never grow, we never learn, and sure as hell we should never teach.”

Once a month…hmmm

It is amazing how quickly time rushes past and in all honesty, I’ve written this blog a million times in my head during the last few weeks. Fitting everything in and finding the energy for everything that needed to be done became a challenge and well, like a friend of mine once told me…’life…Keish…priorities. The truth is, those of you that take the time to read my blog…you are one of my priorities and for a moment my focus was elsewhere. So I’m in the process of reorganising to ensure that I take the time to focus on those things that are important…that means you! Read the rest of this entry »
