There's no amount of prediction or preparation that will help you know exactly what will happen in what order. Mastin Kipp
Someone asked me today if I had all my jobs lined up and planned before moving on from my current job.
I said no
She was gobsmacked as to how I did it.
All I could say that it was a combination of faith and choice.
There were times that I left a place by choice because it was just not where and what I wanted to do and how I wanted to feel
There was a time when I was fired
There was a time when my contract was not renewed
There were times I just walked out
And in hindsight all of those times I was somewhat scared that I would not be able to pay my bills or live comfortably and not once, not even down to my last dollar did I starve or had no where to live. I always had food and shelter, I may not have been able to go to the hairdresser and do pedicures monthly but maybe that is not what I needed at that time.
When we are at the crossroads, there must be something inside us that knows, that knows, that knows you will be ok.
On the really hard days remind yourself that this too shall pass and to get to the mountain top there will be times where rest and being out of breath is a must!
Just part of the journey!
Know who you are
Know your why and remember
the challenges are part of the Journey
Find a way to self talk, to practice and to celebrate the small wins
