A time for endings and beginnings. Graduations, summer vacation, new jobs, saying goodbye to old friends and making new ones, weddings, etc. It often brings a mixed bag of emotions. Sorting through the joy and sadness, excitement and fear can be draining and daunting. However, if you choose to, it can also be a time of impact!
Consider this, nothing has meaning except the meaning you give it. You are more at choice than you might be feeling right now.
This is an opportunity to put it all out there. Brain dump, gather information, ask questions, be open to a multitude of perspectives, listen to the answers of your deepest longings and desires, make choices, create plans and goals and step into what's next with clarity, confidence, courage and energy.
Graduation day, just like our day to day life situations can be both exciting and scary. There is excitement for our accomplishments, memories, what we have learned, our friendships and hope for new opportunities.
At the same time, there is the uncertainty of the future and the unknowns of what's next. Questions such as, how will I use what I have learned to create a great future? How will I accomplish my goals, dreams and aspirations? Who will I become? What will I encounter along the way? Who will be with me for the journey?
If you think about it, aren't we all faced with those questions on a daily basis? In my perspective this is a time of year that we can put ourselves in the place of those graduates and if we are honest, also ponder those questions as they relate to our lives.
Last newsletter I talked about the difference between taking too much responsibility for others vs. taking responsibility for yourself first. Each twist and turn in the road of our existence invites us to continue to course correct to experience more of what we want out of life. Along the way, we also get to experience ourselves becoming more of who we want to be. However, it does require that we put ourselves first to create the necessary clarity, focus, courage, energy and mindsets to create a life we love.
Take some time to revisit and update your next steps.
- What do you really want?
- When do you want it?
- Are you open and willing to let go of the thoughts, words and actions that are not in alignment with that outcome?
- How do you evaluate and choose what you will give your time and attention to?
- What skills, strengths or systems are in need of improvement?
- When will you start on that path?
- Do you have a support and accountability system to keep you on track?
I can support you in answering those and many more questions that create the necessary framework and actions to make your deepest longings become a reality.
