So often, when we begin to translate our fantasies and longings into reality, we expect that it’s going to feel so dang amazing:
How liberating this experience will be! How Joyful! How Exciting!
We’ll be so relieved to finally start to creating or exploring The Long-Awaited Thing!
Our minds and hearts will be expanded!
We’ll surely feel aligned, purposeful, and inspired!
In short: we’re ready to feel all the good feels we’ve put off for way too long.
Do you sometimes feel busy, overwhelmed, or scattered?
Could your time and attention could be better aligned with your priorities?
If you’re thinking, “Hell, what even ARE my priorities?!,” you’re not alone! Please read on. ;)
Have some of the habits that serve you well fallen to the wayside?
Or, let’s face it, maybe they’ve never been established in the first place?! ;)
Are you ready to feel more centred and ‘in charge’ of your day-to-day life?
It might be time for you to create some anchors.
Do you fantasize about life without your current problems and imagine how great things could be once you’ve got solutions for the stuff that’s stressing you out or getting you down?
I’m so sick of this job: I can’t wait until I’m in my ‘dream’ career path!
It’s gonna be awesome to get out of this depleting marriage and be with a compatible partner.
Everything will be easier once I’m out of debt and earning more.
Most of us dream and project ourselves into fantasy futures where things are and feel better - and sometimes, when conditions shift, life really does feel easier or more pleasurable.
So, what does a pivot look like, exactly?
How do we know when a pivot is the wise path to take (and not just letting ourselves off the hook when the going gets tough?)
How can one pivot with grace and also take care of the parts of ourselves experiencing a discomforting sense of loss, disappointment, or failure?
Do you ever find yourself putting off a task that would release you from a bottleneck and actually get you moving forward?
Do you procrastinate on tackling something that may not feel great in the moment - even though it’s crucial to get it done?
Do you sometimes avoid a project that scares you?
I mean, you’re human!
