I’ve been doing some serious adulting. It feels juicy to be able to take care of things. I cleaned out some files. I cleaned out my folders in my back pack. I signed up for a health plan with my new job. I signed up for a flexible savings account. And I worked out.
I am exhausted as hell. Yet, it feels absolutely wonderful. I am happy as heck to be back into the swing of handling my business. This past month was perfect for what I needed at the time. I needed that time to lick my wounds. I needed to take the time to find a perfect job for my perfect life. But I also needed the time to reevaluate my current life. I was working very hard at #findingthejuicy and #goingtotheedge and confronting my fears. Yet, I wasn’t ready to take the plunge into #livingmybestlife due to fear of the unknown.
I found myself busy as hell doing interviews and finding my perfect job. I was also busy with things that make my heart sing such as meeting with people and creating connections or strengthening connections. It might seem that I was just hanging out with friends but it was so much more than that. I was finessing the art of listening and being mindfully attentive. I was working on those skills which will be invaluable in this life of mine.
I was busy cleaning up and organizing for Michigan Framily Reunion. I was exploring and envisioning my life mission. Of which, I think that MFR is a key component in that adventure. I started seeing myself as producer of MFR. I mean, I am co-producer of MFR but it was just this side gig. This thing that I was doing with my partner. I took my thoughts and dreams to the next level and started visualizing MFR supporting me and my partner and others. I started visualizing it as my primary means of support financially. It BLEW my mind to take that dream to the next level. The time off gave me a chance to see if I would actually enjoy doing that. I can tell you with a resounding
that I enjoyed doing the work. I enjoyed building connections. I enjoyed, I loved doing that work. I want to continue with that vision.
Now i am back to work. A new job means learning all sorts of new things. I also will be refreshing old skills. I am working in mental health again! I am extremely excited about that. The skills that I have been working on will continue to be tested and enhanced. I will be working with people all day long. I will be working with challenging people that will test my skills in a way so that when I use them in other areas of my life, they will be stronger and more refined. I am just going to keep getting better.
Just like a lovely onion, the layers upon layers will continue to build on the previous layer. I am so very thankful for all the new skills I will be learning. I didn’t know where I was going when I left my previous employment but after my initial terror, I knew that I was destined for something even better. I was
I am destined for greatness. I’m not the only one. We are all destined for greatness. If I continue working on getting out of my own way, I will continue to see wonderful things manifest. How else can we say this…

Or how about this one? It’s been said a thousand different ways.
However you want to say it, our thoughts are powerful. Our words are powerful. Talk nice to yourself. Talk nice to your brain. I remember when I was just going back to school after my divorce. I was, of course, the oldest one in the class. I was working really hard to retrain my brain to learn after years of making and raising babies. Before an exam, I would talk to my brain, “I know you have ALL of the information inside, you just need to retrieve it. Give me back the information when I need it. I know you have it and at the time I need it, you will release all of the information to me. Thank you, Brain”. It worked. I made it through all of my pre-reqs and nursing school with a 3.9. I graduated when I was 43.
Think powerful thoughts. Use powerful words with yourself.
