As I was writing another article on self-awareness, I was thinking about how difficult and draining it can be when we put so many others ahead of ourselves. The people that work in jobs where that quality of care is important are often the ones most affected by this type of energy drain.
I wanted to take a deeper look at this for those of you, my clients, friends and followers who are self-employed and in a care-giving work.
It could be you ...

I know your type.
You run all day, likely holding your breath, you rarely (or never) have time to enjoy a relaxed dinner with your family, and you wake up every morning dreading the day ahead.
Imagine if you could be in Bizarro World and you suddenly open your eyes feeling enthusiastic about your life, you browse a bookstore on a whim, and even have a quiet mind for most of the day.

Does Your Reality Really Suck Way Too Often?
Life is so crazy busy you can hardly stop to check if you are still breathing! Imagine looking at your life and seeing something different? Imagine being able to stop to smell the roses, have a relaxed dinner with the family or friends. How about waking up feeling rested and ready for the day and actually looking forward to all of it!
Seems impossible, you say. Well if you continue the way you are now ...
I have done many things and not done even more. Some of them were things I "tried" then failed. Maybe I was not invested, or even believed that I would fail before I started. But the things that were successful, were all worthwhile because I did them. They didn't have to be "change the world" things, just maybe "change me" a little things. Like losing weight, or reading something positive daily or even writing a blog. Stuff I did then forgot ...

Some of you know that I have been flying back and forth to California in October and November. I believe in education that both feeds me but also to build a body of knowledge that will support my clients in the best possible way.
The first event I went to was to educate myself on a money process that talks to Money Archetypes. This was an incredible 3 day event that helped me understand my money process and how I deal ...
Does time get away from you? Is there enough time in your day…Your Life? To do the things you really want to do? Is your time filled with other peoples priorities? Is there just too much to do in the 24 hours of your day? Is it all you can do to not pull the blankets over your head because your day is already overwhelming and you have not even put your feet on the floor yet?
