I’m sorry the newsletter is late. I forgot to schedule it yesterday and we tied up all day long. I hope everyone is having a good weekend!
This week is a little food for thought. I encourage you to take a look at your life to see where you aren’t showing up fully. Where are you playing small? Is there more you can give in life? Does everything look good on the outside but something isn’t right? We tend to make ourselves look good externally out of security, comfort, and worry about what others will say. However, this is short term focused and will leave you with a lot of angst.
Now is the time to take an inventory of your life to determine what is missing. It’s likely you don’t need to make radical changes such as quitting your job, but you can show up more in your current life as a partner, parent, boss, or employee. This process requires you to take responsibility for everything that happens to you, the good and the bad. As you begin to take responsibility for your life, you bring back your power. You will realize that you are in charge and no matter what happens, you will respond.
Where can you make a bigger and better contribution in your life and the lives of others? Where are you going through the motions and not showing up fully? Are you allowing a fear of what other people might say affect the work you are doing? These are questions I am pondering myself and I’m sure some of you are too. I’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback on where you feel you are playing small in your life. I find it helps to put these thoughts down on paper and I’m here to help if you need it.
Hopefully the links this week will spark more questions for you to ponder as we move through the year.
