Trying Things Out

I am a planner. At one time I even had a title to prove it: financial planning manager for a major retailer.

I am very good at seeing the big picture, and working backwards to create the stepping stones needed to get there.

It’s a useful skill to have.

It can also be very limiting!!😳

Opportunities missed because they’re not in the plan.

Too busy planning and not enough living NOW.🤦🏻‍♀️

It took me decades to discover a new way of being in my own life. I was metaphorically on my knees trying to become a mum and didn’t know what else to do.

It still creeps in.

I get activated when husband is looking for a new job. I play out scenarios. What could that mean for our life? It’s almost like I hold my breath in those moments. I’ll exhale ‘when it’s all sorted’!

There’s the same pull when it comes to offerings at my work.

When I’ve figured it all out THEN I’ll run that programme.🙄

This year is all about trying things out. 

In the garden I’m giving myself permission to plant LOTS of the stuff I like even if it doesn’t fit in with the conventional bed rotation system.

So in life. I’m doing these daily emails. I’m hosting my first online women’s circle on Thursday evening.

I don’t know where it’s all leading too🤷🏻‍♀️ but they’re what’s lighting me up right now.

It’s like having mini-adventures…and I am up for adventures!

What would you like to try out for yourself?🤔

What could you say YES to even if you haven’t got it all figured out?🤔

Let’s flourish together!
