I have 2 goals this cycle: wellness (sleep! Execize! Eating food that nurtures! Meditation!) And creating integrity with my career.
The wellness goal covers a lot of ground. The sleeping part is still really hard for me, and part of that is a long commute and the nature of the work day. We have got to figure something better out, people. I am having a serious scarcity conversation about work and “my time”. Like, there are not enough hours in the day, which is not supporting me, because there are exactly the right amount of hours. I just have to get better at using them. I have been working out MUCH more regularly, not always hitting the target (4 morning workouts during the week), but I am working out 5 days, which beats 1 or 2, sometimes after work, and sometimes on weekends. It really keeps the boogeyman away.
As for work… it’s a nebulous goal and this is what it means: always do my best at work. Take personal reaponsibility. Notice what needs to be done and do it. Create a career path and start walking it. SO. I am needing to learn to quiet my mind at work. I’m realizing how sensitive I am to other people’s energy, and my thought go wild. This is where the meditation comes in, but I want to get into the practice of mind clearing at work. It shifts me big time, so I can be a glorious and productive employee.
I have a networking meeting this week with someone who’s job I want someday, and i am using this as an opportunity to start the career path mapping (and network expanding). I started a class with some friends AND my job is also signing me up for a class (stretching ‘ s what I DO) and I am going to take it (vast improvement from two weeks ago when my ego was like, “I’m sorry, what class? And I’m gonna learn things that make me better at my job. Bingo).
It feels kind of like something Naomi talked about in her post; I make goals and my life starts to conspire with me; the momentum is with and through and outside of me. Good stuff.
Hope you all are feeling powerful- cause you are. And it’s a gift to behold.
