Set aside time for yourself. Turn off the television, take time to reflect and really listen with your heart. I left work early today and had planned to work outside in the garden. I felt compelled to write and complete a new book. This book is not for me, but it is about how we can choose to leave a legacy for our family.
What action am I taking today? I decided to really listen and not be too talkative. when we listen from the heart, we learn from others and really can offer solace and not offer pat answers. My mother was frazzled, she had misplaced one of her bills and shared how she had torn up her house. I was able to offer her some comfort, that she had another way to handle the payment. Later I called back and she shared she had found the statement. I reiterated that she could release some of her anxiousness. What was really bothering her was an upcoming dental appointment and she felt she needed to have her bills paid before having the dental procedure. My mother who is 90+ is still active in paying her bills, walking to the post office and reads the newspaper daily. She has contact with her friends through the phone and does not use the internet and faithfully feeds her outside cat, Lovely. Count the blessings each day.
Prosperity comes not from how many things you hold, but how much time and freedom do you have. I realized that I could take off and once per week and take care of myself and be ready to build my side hustle. My garden and writing are calling. I am envisioning my new career and little by little, I am creating the freedom and time that I desire. With my investing and trading, I am creating more income to replace my 9 to 5.
It is through consistency and persistence that we can make the career transition without being anxious and take step by step action plans. I have an ongoing education program in place. I am releasing some habits that no longer serve me. I have days that I do not spend money and work with what I have in my pantry and refrigerator. Creating peace of mind makes it easier to see clearly and know what and when to step. My book is almost ready on Amazon and I am designing a campaign for getting the word out and ask for reviews.
Happy Investing in your self!
