What's on the other side?
It's been a while since I have posted anything, and realized that I needed to update a few things on my site.
My divorce is final. Bittersweet, but a new chapter begins, and I still believe that the greatest opportunities are on the other side of change.
It's my motto. Of course I believe it.
🎉The house that my ex and I jointly owned is sold. The last tie that binds...
🎉I just bought a beach-front condo. It will be my 2nd home and I will split my time between the two. There is a lot of work to be done on the condo, but I have all the time in the world, right?
👍 I'm retired, after all. Well, retired from Corporate.
👍I mentor two young individuals and meet with them weekly or bi-weekly. Volunteering my time and having a positive impact on today's youth is so rewarding!
👍I have a coaching business. I limit the number of clients I take on because I'm retired, right? And I enjoy "me" time.
❤️I have two dogs that love to run and play and socialize. Me, too! Well, except the running part.
🧘♀️Exercise. I need to fit this into my schedule, too. Moving to Mexico and extracting myself from a sedentary lifestyle has had such a positive impact on my overall health.
Sounds busy, right? Well, I just started a new job. Like, a real salary-benefits-401K job. In an industry I know nothing about.
I often talk about how career and life changes are scary, and many have this fear of not being qualified enough, or of failure; or fear of what's on the other side; or having this sense that the timing isn't right. The timing never seems right.
Well, I'm feeling it...
🤔AM I qualified??
🤔Will I learn fast enough?
🤔Is now REALLY a good time?
🤔What if there aren't enough hours in the day?
🤔 Shouldn't I wait until ______ ?
If I tell my clients to question the Imposter Syndrome that lies within, I must question my own Imposter Syndrome. Are my fears and doubts based on facts? Am I really incapable? Am I going to be discovered as a fraud?
It's important to remember that somebody thought I was capable of doing the work. Somebody believes in me, so I need to believe in me.
If not now, then when? We all only have 24-hours in a day.
Learning anything new is going to take time and we all struggle through the learning curve. Believe it's going to work out the way it's supposed to, and it will!
This new opportunity is going to force me to re-organize my life and make everything work.
So, here's to a new condo, a new job, a new challenge, a new change. I can't wait to discover the opportunities on the other side that await me!
