Pump the brakes


Happy New Year! As usual it’s time for some reflection. Part of reflecting includes pointing out what not to do again. In order to know what not to do, you have to have a sense of what you intended to do. 

One thing I think is important for women to do is to take some time, draw back and reflect. You ever see those scenes in the cartoons where someone human size picks up a teeny-tiny person and checks them out? That’s what we all need to do sometimes. Grab yourself by your collar and check yourself. Check your surroundings, check your mind, check your energy. 

I used to be a woe is me person. I used to cry, complain, throw fits and blame other people for things that had absolutely nothing to do with them. Well… I still have my moments. We’re all human right? It takes practice.

What can you control? What’s going on in your life right now that you may feel is not fair and you wish it would be over with? Make a list because I know you got one. Whether it’s a promotion, a vacation, a relationship, a strained friendship, or a business plan that you can’t seem to get out your head, write it down and reflect! What have you done today to make any of these things a possibility? In most cases the answer is nothing. 0 + 0 = what? Point proven

They say insanity is the act of doing the same thing over and over again and expecting the same results. Would you agree? Then why are you doing this to yourself? Why are you limiting yourself? Why are you blaming others for things you have all the power to control? If you want it, go get it. You don’t need a new year to make changes. You don’t need Monday to come to make changes. You don’t even need tomorrow to come to make changes. You know why? Because you have today. You have right now, this very second, this very moment to do something different. It could be as simple as believing things will change. 

Do something today. Write now. Grab yourself by the collar. Draw back and reflect. Make a list. Get it done. The journey can’t be started if you don’t stand up to walk. 

Until next time XOXO
