Life is a crazy ride full of ups and downs. One day we have a good job, a house, and a family to take care of. The next day the job is gone, which makes the house too expensive, which makes the family unhappy. Right now I am coaching someone who has had to start over again after having successful career in just this situation. With corporate buy outs and mergers on the rise, even those who have good jobs in good companies can find themselves in this situation.
What do we do when we have been thrown this type of curve ball? We have to start from scratch.
I have had to start over many, many times in my life. When I was twelve years old my dad left us and it shattered me and the rest of my family. It wasn't the divorce that was bad. It was how it was handled. I was in self-pity, anger, and depression for most of my teens. But I knew I could not stay there. It was a dead end place to be. I fought to get out. I fought to move on with my life. I did, but it was a long journey to possibility.
I've had boyfriends cheat on me, spouses lose their jobs, me get diagnosed with a sleep disorder, and discover my talents were not made to support me financially. In finding out the world is not really what I wanted it to be, people were not who I thought they were, and I was never going to be what I thought I could, I discovered reality.
Now some might say reality is a tough place to live. What I discovered what it is much easier to live in acceptance of reality then in the lies we tell ourselves about it. When I was truly honest with who I was, when I was able to see honestly who others were, and what this world was about, I was able to work with it instead of against it. I moved out of the problems and into solutions.
When I wrote The Possibility Path I was at the beginning of opening up my own possibilities for my reality. 5 years later and I am still there, living it. Every day, every moment, I am living in the reality of possibility, of solution, of answers, of coaching myself out of fear and self-pity into one of answers and solutions. It's a good place to be.
Life will throw us all curve balls. I know there are more waiting for me! But when it does I now have the tools and understanding to see life as it is, and find the possibility within each situation as it comes.
I could not be where I am without The Possibility Path and the book from which it came. (Due out next year.) I am forever grateful and forever aware of the wonders of this world and how I can quickly and simply change my perspective and find my way. That is a gift.
As I move into opening up my creative life to just being me and The Possibility Path to being its own thing, I am blessed to have you on my journey! Thanks for being there as we all open up to a little more possibility!
