It feels easier to be looking forward…
The targets to achieve have had to be found within myself, which has been tough!
Now that the worst of the dark days of winter are over, the weather is giving glimmers of brighter weather, moving forward is on the agenda.
I’m not alone in these feelings of finding it hard, am I?
Working for myself, has been a huge change in my way of life, and at times quite a lonely place. Never worse than in the dreary Uk winter!
No distractions of a team, but none of the pressures either, which has been liberating, but also difficult at times.
Some self reflection has been necessary to move forward.
I recognise this is part of my journey and time has given me space to look at:-
who I am emotionally
where my strengths lie
whom I like connecting to
what I find challenging
what I need to improve on
where I am in my life and what next
what opportunities are available to me
This will make me stronger in the long run and more able to focus on where I am heading.
I need to be able to set my targets to continue to be successful and build my practice!
I have tried to embrace these steps for happiness but not always found it easy putting them into practice.
The first one is particularly relevant, with too much analysing becoming distracting, but may be necessary at my stage of working for myself?
Some exploring has had to be done to gain self acceptance, be able to love more and appreciate more.
This process may be tough but is beneficial for your skills and experience when working with clients, to understand their blocks and challenges.
Personally I am now more connected with how fortunate I am to have this opportunity to work for myself and build a business.
I am able to feel proud of my achievements to date.
I am engaged with what I can offer others, in order to support clients to make changes.
The outcome is I am planning future services which will help and support people to improve their well being. So all round benefits.
This is an ongoing journey but acceptance has enabled me to move forward from where I was in my life and feel more focused.
