There are times in our lives when we feel the need, deep down inside of us, to take a fresh look at what we are doing. It may be nagging at us for a while – or maybe it comes over us suddenly as a wake-up call. No matter how it happens, we must pay attention to what the message is. To what is inside trying to get out.
Over the past year, the question of “What’s Missing?” has been coming up a lot for me. I am always wanting to do better or different to keep things interesting, to keep up with what my clients need, to feel good about what I am doing. One of the biggest areas that we suffer over is work. Are we fulfilled? Are we bored? Do we long for something new? Having lunch today with one of my friends, I could tell that the energy and sparkle wasn’t there anymore. When I asked her what was going on, she said that she was just bored. She had only been in her job two years but it was the same routine everyday – she was on autopilot.
These are the signals that our best self is sending to us – that we must take a beginning step to do something different and new.
This Spring, the season of renewal, is the perfect time to pay attention to our feelings and emotions. What is the message? What are feelings trying to tell us? It may just be a time for you to take a step back and listen to your heart.
In doing so you will find patterns, and then start to envision how you will feel when you are on purpose and doing what you are here to do. The time is now to ask – what will make me feel happy and fulfilled? Listen to the answers. This way you can start to plan your own season of renewal.
As part of my own renewal, I am thrilled to announce the new International Center for Women’s Leadership. We are here for women executives and business owners who want more in their careers, businesses, and life.
It’s time to just stop getting by each day and to start designing your future. We can help you.
