I’ve made some big decisions lately – for how I’m running my home, my life and my vision of my career.
As tends to happen, everyone has an opinion, each bringing their own experience (let’s face it – sometimes baggage) and perspective.
Change can make you unpopular. It can be scary. It is also an opportunity for examination and growth.
One thing that I love about the age that I’ve reached (I don’t love the age enough to throw the number out there all of the time, though) – is that, buried under day-to-day frustrations and even indecision, I am confident. I trust my instincts a lot more. I have learned what I value and what my priorities are.
I spent some time over the past few months in group life coaching sessions, which helped me to step back and add order to all of the thoughts in my head. It helped me to rally that neglected confidence and to make big leaps.
It’s scary. It’s hard. But the decisions? They’re mine.
Let’s face it: Regardless of how big or strong our support networks, at the end of the day, each of us has to step away from our lives, our blogs, the noise of expectations and opinions of others – and be content with ourselves.
I’m embracing new challenges. Am I scared? Absolutely. But am I confident in my own decisions? Every night, absolutely yes. That’s the peace that will carry me.
