Life lessons worth re-learning

September 2, 2010

I’m in transition mode, preparing to leap into the unknown world of self-employment. As I wrestle with how to promote myself, how to negotiate contracts, what to focus my business on, etc., etc., I sometimes find myself getting tied in knots.

It’s time to slow down a bit and focus on what the transition is teaching (and re-teaching) me:

    Fantastic! Thanks for this – from someone who is also learning the art of self-employment.

    Lovely!! And excellent lessons. I was particularly touched by: “You don’t have to be smarter, prettier or thinner. You just have to be yourself.”

    And it might be surprising to hear that coming from someone who helps people lose weight and have a better relationship with food (yeah, that would be me…). But it’s an important message. It’s about being more comfortable with YOU. Great message.

    And as a self-employed person who also made the transition from working for someone else to working for myself — it’s not always an easy road but in my opinion it is worth it!!

    Ahhhh… such sweet and simple reminders as I awake on this first day after the last summer holiday, with a creepy old anxiety in my gut.
    Despite ample support and scaffolding, knowing this year to be one of intentional experimentation and experiencing of a way of being “outside” the regular work-a-day rhythm, the vastness of possibility feels a tad overwhelming.
    I remind myself, through breath, self talk and remembered recent delight, that I have enough, I am enough and that I take it one step at a time, staying focused right here, right now.
