Good morning! This morning I'm journaling, thinking, and praying... and while I'm away from "normal" life, I am processing so many things.
What can I change?
What can I adjust?
How can I go back home with renewed vision for my life, my kids, and my business?
I can't change the past. But I can change course and affect the future.
I'm reading two phenomenal books right now. "Rocket Fuel" and "Rising Strong"--I can know with certainty that both of these books will deeply affect my life and my business. I am also filling many pages in my journal as I process all these important things. I find it so healing and therapeutic to actually write down my thoughts as I think them. It helps me sort things out and I have a recording of that process, too.
I am also listening to a couple new-to-me music albums. Whenever I do this, I stamp the images of vacation on top of the music and anytime I listen to that music, I am transported back to the sights and smells of vacation. It's amazing and powerful!
It's soooo important to step away from normal life and responsibilities and obligations to reassess what I love and appreciate about my life and what I can change. Honestly, I need to do this more often. This week has been incredibly powerful for me personally. I have worked through more issues and problems by stepping away than I ever could have done while sitting at my desk at home.
Sometimes you just need a different perspective to see your life clearly.
