A DECADE ON…
This is me twenty years ago in the year 2000, ten years later in 2010 and this is me now 2020! Look how young I am in the first photo : )
A lot has happened in this time…
. I married the man I love in 2002
. I gave birth to both my children in 2005 and 2009
. We underwent a huge house renovation 2006
. I launched a crazy business idea 2008
. An international publishing deal 2012
. A very stressful house move 2012
. The arrival of two crazy fur-babies 2011 and 2018
. Lots of extensive family travel over the years
. And sadly the loss of many loved ones along the way.
There has been immense joy and incredible pain. Highs and lows. Successes and failures. Laughter and tears. Ups and downs. Abundance and lack. So much has changed in my life, including me.
I am not the same women I was. I’ve grown, I’ve evolved and I’ve learnt more about myself and the world at large and you could say, I’m a little wiser.
For me, my twenties were about marriage and babies and building a home. A beautiful time in my life. My thirties have been very much about career, finding my purpose and making my mark on the planet. A very exciting but exhausting period of my life. As I enter my forth decade on planet earth I’m reflecting on what I’ve learn so far and what’s fundamentally important to me going forward into this new energy decade.
There are three significant things I’ve learnt that I’d like to share with you today.
LESSON 1: What once served you isn’t going to always serve you. Things change. You change. What drives you changes. Just because you have always done something, doesn’t mean you have to continue to do it if it no longer serves you. You are allowed to change your mind. The secret is knowing when to let go of people, situations and circumstances so that you can allow the ‘new’ to come into your life. Just remember, sometimes we have to force an ending for a new beginning to start.
LESSON 2: Future tripping is dangerous because you invariably miss the present moment, which is the only moment there ever really is. Worrying about what might happen tomorrow, next month or next year is simply futile. It steals your happiness and makes you anxious and stressed. Of course, it’s good to know your big ‘why’ and to have a rough plan of where you’re going, but please stop obsessing over the future, it will just make you miserable. Learn some basic mindfulness tools to help you become more present and in the moment and notice the effect it has on your life overall. You will be more at peace, happier and certainly more intuitive.
LESSON 3: Learn to say NO. Stop doing things that don’t bring you joy. Okay, so you have to earn a living, you have to clean the house or walk the dogs, we all have commitments and obligations, but this doesn’t mean we have to sell our soul. It’s okay to say NO when you don’t want to do something. You don’t have to go to the party, take the promotion or put up with being treated badly. You can say NO and the world will still continue to turn. Don’t become resentful by doing things you don’t want to do. Be true to yourself and not only will you be happier, those around you will (eventually) respect you more.
The most important transformation in the last ten year is that I’m truer to myself now than ever before. I’ve stopping chasing. I’ve stopped comparing, I’ve stopped obsessing, I’ve stopped please pleasing, I’ve stopped trying to control every god dammed thing in my life, and as I result, I am more at peace with myself than ever before. The endless chasing made me sick and has been a wake-up call that has taken me back to my truth, that I am enough just as I am. Full stop.
What have you learnt about yourself in the last decade?
1. Who do you want to become in the next ten years?
2. What do you want to do or achieve?
Truth is, the next decade is going to pass, like it or not.
And I want to help you make your next 10 years even better than your last.
