Let's Dream Again
Most of us are on week nine of sheltering at home. Some states, like Texas, have started to lift the restrictions, and people are beginning to move around. While some of you may be choosing to go out and take advantage of some newfound freedoms, the rest of us are choosing to stay home just a little longer. Neither option is right or wrong. You have to make the best decision for yourself and your family. But this isn't why I am here.
Over the last nine weeks, we have navigated some unfamiliar and disorienting terrain. There have been parts of this shelter at home that have felt overwhelming, and let's be honest, rather exhausting. I believe that the current situation has consumed us all, and it has been difficult to envision or dream about the future.
I completely understand how this can be difficult. None of us knows how this is going to turn out on the other side. But, as a life coach that helps women create a life that means something to them on their terms, I do know that you do have control over what you want it to look like for you on the other side.
Today, I want to encourage you to start envisioning your life and dreaming about your future. I want to encourage you to start taking steps to create a life that means something to you on your terms. Let’s dream again!
Here are four steps to get you started:
1. Awareness: To get to where you want to go, you first have to identify where you are. That begins with self-awareness. Once you have self-awareness, then you can choose if you’d like to create something else.
2. Acceptance: When you practice ACCEPTANCE, you are saying that everything is (and was) perfectly ok with yourself, others, and situations.
3. Be Intentional: There are you two ways you can be more intentional in creating a life that means something to you on your terms. a) realize that your life consists of choices, and
b) have a Plan.
4. Trusting the Process: This means knowing that while you’re working your plan, you and your plan are a work in progress that can and will change over time.
It’s time to start dreaming again. Who’s in?
