One blessing of pain and suffering is the Gift of Clarity. I am involved in a lot of really cool things I enjoy. I realized however that my schedule has really worn me down. My immunity right now is almost non-existent. I am usually high energy, but over the last several months, I have found myself having to psych myself up for things. Just not the me I am used to.
I am going to make some changes in my life. I tried simplifying over the last two years but ended up just replacing busy with newer busy. So after conversations with my closest friends, who independently gave the same advice, I am going to focus on things that only I can do. There are capable and trustworthy people in our lives that are willing to do more. We can do that. I have never been afraid of change but often have been slow to it. Change for me typically has occurred after its past due. This experience has been a huge wake up call.
One advantage of empowering others is the growth and opportunities that benefit all. Personal growth is a very real thing. People find the greatest joy in life when they can make decisions, when they are trusted and most importantly when there is the risk of failure. I have always believed in bringing good people together and great things happen. Now we are going to act on that belief and level up. I am very excited to see what the future brings. I need a little more of this…
…to do more of what I really care about.
