Sorting through some boxes of photos and keepsakes at the weekend, I came across a piece of paper with the following words typed onto the page. They seem to express, so beautifully, the heart of the message in my last blog post, that I feel super inspired to share them with you. I don’t know who wrote them.
I hope you enjoy…
I’ve been aware of the potential pitfalls of ‘shiny new object syndrome’ recently…
I wonder… are you someone who loves the latest new ‘thing’, course, workshop, technique, strategy or promise of all-you-ever-wanted at the wave of a magic wand? Are you into growth and expansion and fulfilling your potential, and, are you always on the look out for new ways to evolve, experience and enjoy more and more of life?
While I wouldn’t say I flit from thing to thing, I know I sometimes have a tendency to have a million great ideas or things I want to do and I am full of enthusiasm, and then, I often find myself not knowing which thing to take action on. This can leave me feeling overwhelmed and paralysed in overload.
I’m starting this week by reflecting upon something I did recently that didn’t work for me. It feels right for me to use the opportunity of the past couple of days to have a look inside and to write to you about what I did that didn’t feel good for me and about what I see (and have learned) because of it. I’ll give you some background…
Sooooo, with a deep breath and a ‘here goes’ approach, I see that I reacted too quickly and too harshly to someone I was upset with last week. I was upset because that person didn’t keep their word about an agreement we had. I was upset because I didn’t feel that the person was respecting me and my time.
