Whether it was a birdhouse for Scouts or a million-dollar mansion at the beach, you went through the emotional ups and downs of frustration and joy. The frustration that things were not turning out exactly the way you wanted them to turn out. The wood was too knotty and the paint was too dark. The appliances didn’t fit where you wanted to position them because the wrong measurements were taken. You pictured it so perfectly, but nothing seemed to be going exactly the way you planned.
Have you ever felt your life isn’t turning out exactly the way you planned?
June is Rebuild Your Life Month. Take a minute to focus on what your life would look like a year from now if you rebuilt it starting today.
Have you been thinking about going back to school to finish your degree, or learn a new facet of your profession? Now would be a good time to start reading up on what you need to do…get an application, find out what the requirements are, research grants, or funding options.
What about getting all those ideas out of your head and finally writing that book you keep thinking about? (And if the thought of writing a entire book stops you cold, consider participating in a collaborative book where you contribute only one chapter. And I’ve got a great connection for you to help you make that plan happen!)
Have you been longing to take a trip? Go to the library – yes, get out of the house and explore the pages of the travel section. Take out some of the maps, spread them out, and let your fingers explore the route you would take.
Just as you wouldn’t go on a trip without a map, rebuilding your life means creating a plan of action to achieve your goals. The house was built with a firm foundation and the fundamentals.
Your rebuilding may be the result of a life change of your own choosing (or not), but you have a firm foundation to start from.
Your core is strong.
You are determined to become the woman you are meant to be.
No house was ever built overnight and you won’t rebuild your life quickly either. What you can do is start writing down how you’d like your life to be. There is power at the end of your pen. Do you struggle writing about your business and your life? So many people have not tapped into the hidden gems and treasures that make their stories distinctive. Your story is what makes you uniquely qualified to meet your client’s needs.
If you are someone who desires to have an impact on the world through writing and needs help to do it, let’s talk.
