Happy New Year, you wonderful specimen, and welcome back.
I’ve tagged this month as Reinvention Month in this space. Because, why not?
That’s what I suggest to my clients when they’re fed up with their job, their home, their city. Sometimes, their relationship, too.
Don’t leave until you’ve made peace.
In my late teens and early twenties, I would hopscotch to and from jobs in such a fashion that it makes me motion sick just thinking about it. It looked a little something like this:
- Burning resentment for my workplace
- Leave in a flurry (often causing a bit of a drama on my way out)
- Nail the interview
- Show up to work enthusiastic and generally stoked to be there
- Think to myself - for about three months - I love it here, this is the best job ever! Until, one day, seemingly out of nowhere...
- … here it comes again - the resentment.
And that’s why they call them repeating lessons.
‘I just can’t seem to avoid the bad boys.’
‘I’m so discontent - nothing ever feels enough for me.’
‘Six months into a relationship, I get bored.’
‘I can’t stand where I live.’
All of these, I can guarantee, are lessons repeating themselves. Lessons that will continue to repeat themselves until you can access enough awareness to see the pattern.
It’s all about deservability. (In other words - recognising your worthiness)
And the want to want.
And the belief you are good and whole and that it is safe and right to want to feel safe and right and good and whole.
The same is true for where it is we choose to set our roots down.
Have we made a conscious choice on where to drop anchor? Or have we landed on nothing but a patch of dirt that has no relevance, no meaning, that adds no richness to the shape of our lives. Is our home… automatic?
All of this is my very scenic route way of saying: Have you found your Spiritual Home yet?
Let’s discuss in the comments.
:: Have you found your spiritual home yet? Where are you!?
:: Perhaps you haven’t, in which case, use the space below to plant a few seeds. What are you willing to want and desire for yourself in terms of your home life?
As always, you are welcome and encouraged to share this post with your friends.
PS: I’m still smiling from what went down over the weekend at my first Author Workshop. It was spectacular. To see a dozen women leave my apartment having started their books, with a clear vision on where to tread next - my goodness. Blessed am I.
