I think this kind of energy is flowing in lots of us right now.
I’ve been having some wonderful conversations over the past week with people who are telling me it’s time to take charge of their eating, their weight, and their health. They’ve known this for years, but for some reason it wasn’t really time before. Now, when they ask themselves the question, “Is it time?” the answer is “YES! It’s time!” And as they make that commitment, they’re feeling excited!
When I think back over my life, I remember that as I approached any of my major life changes or commitments, I would feel increasingly unsettled with where I was. When it was time to find a new job or business, I would feel it coming on for months. I wasn’t sure what it would look like or how I’d find it or create it, but I felt that unsettled feeling that told me a change was coming on. I’d ask myself, “Is it time?” And finally, one day, the answer would be clear. “Yes! It’s time.”
For me, that’s actually a good feeling. A relief. Then I can begin to use the energy that was spent avoiding the decision, or “getting ready to get ready” and put it into action. Ahhhh…. that feels good!
So I’m wondering if you’re feeling it. Have you felt unsettled about anything in your life but just haven’t quite stepped over the threshold to change it? And has that shifted for you? Is it time now? ? ?
This is a great time of the year to make commitments to ourselves -- no, not pie in the sky resolutions that we never follow — but real commitments to take action to bring our lives into alignment with what we truly want.
