How to Stoke the Fire and Go for What You Want ๐Ÿ”ฅโœจ

Live with gratitude to get what you want

Today I spent 20 minutes straightening out the bundle of charging cords on my desk. Then I swept the dog hairs from behind the printerโ€ฆand perused eBay for a new pair of slippers. All the while realizing the irony that I was doing these things to avoid writing about how to stoke the fire within and go for what you want- about how enthusiasm can help you overcome procrastination. โฃ
A common observation I hear from midlife women is that they feel stuck and ho-hum about their lives; like the spark has gone away and they are just going through the motions without a lot of joy or eagerness. โฃ
They hire me to get them excited about their lives again by figuring out what they are ๐“น๐“ช๐“ผ๐“ผ๐“ฒ๐“ธ๐“ท๐“ช๐“ฝ๐“ฎ aboutย ย and ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ putting a plan in action to ๐“ฐ๐“ธ ๐“ฏ๐“ธ๐“ป ๐”€๐“ฑ๐“ช๐“ฝ ๐“ฝ๐“ฑ๐“ฎ๐”‚ ๐”€๐“ช๐“ท๐“ฝ and work through the resistance that makes them believe they canโ€™t have it. โฃ
I guide women to let go of the grip with which they normally go through life, to loosen the reigns a bit, and to meet lifeโ€™s challenges with enthusiasm and a sense of adventure.โฃ
Itโ€™s easy to say โ€œjust do it!โ€ and โ€œfake it til you make itโ€ to muscle your way through any resistance. Yet, as my example above, it can still keep you stuck and unfocused. So, whatโ€™s the secret to get you past it and fuel you into living life at its fullest?ย โฃ๐ŸŽ‡

Awakened gratitude pulls you out of lethargy and into deeper action. Instead of making life happen, you make life welcome โ€“ with all of itsโ€™ messiness and ups and downs. โฃ

Regardless of your current situation, learn to live into the awe and mystery of life. The reality is that life is full of challenges and chaos- we never really know whatโ€™s next (look at the last few months!!!).ย 

Since nothing seems to make sense, when you do find something or someone who does make sense for you, embrace and celebrate that miracle through the pandemonium around you. Find happinessย in the unique insanity of being here now. Find gratitude for being able to live and learn from it all. ๐Ÿ’ฅ
