3 Steps to Reset YourselfJul 05, 2021
Have you ever had that feeling, that something isn’t quite right in your world? That feeling in the pit of your stomach that something is a bit off balance. You’re just not sure what it is that’s not right.
Sometimes that feeling manifests in different ways.
- You may find you’re a bit snappy with your kids, not unnecessarily, but things you used to ride out are really pressing your buttons.
- Or perhaps you find you’re feeling frustrated with your life, and you just ‘ugh’ every time you’re asked to do something.
- Perhaps you’re starting to feel some resentment towards your partner - he’s out for work dinners, he’s busy every day with no time to even take your call, he isn’t grateful for all you’re doing around the home and for the family.
- Or maybe, while you’re happy for your friend and what she’s sharing, you also feel a little jealous.
- Perhaps you’re filling your day with stuff, keeping yourself very busy just so you’re not left alone with your own thoughts.
Does any of this feel familiar? Have you had one of those ‘ahhhh’ moments while reading these examples?
These are all signs that something is a little ‘off’ in your world. And while you may have become used to these feelings in your life, it may have become your normal, it doesn’t have to be that way.
There are loads of reasons why you may have got here. Maybe you decided to be a stay at home mum but now the kids are in full time school, they don’t need you in the same way anymore. So you’re feeling frustrated because you want something more in your life, but you don’t know what that is.
Or maybe you gave up your career to follow and support your partner, and now that everything is running smoothly you find yourself wondering ‘what now?’
Or maybe you’ve had a fabulous career and you’re great at juggling the family needs and your professional life, but somewhere in between you lost sight of you - independent of work and family, who are you?
It doesn’t matter how you go to this space, right now a new world is calling you… are you ready for it? Stop doubting yourself. Stop feeling guilty. Stop feeling frustrated. Stop wondering where to start. Now is your time to shine. Now is your time to prepare for your new world. Now is your time to feel fulfilled again.
The first step is to get really clear on your strengths. Write a list. Talk to friends, family, ex colleagues and ask them what they see as your strengths. Once you're clear on your strengths, you can identify which ones you want to use in your life. With this clarity, you will also start to build your confidence.
Next, you want to get really clear on your interests and passions. What can you talk about for hours? What gets you excited about your day?
Once you have clarity on these two core pieces, you can start to build your puzzle. Ask yourself how you want to use these strengths and passions? What is important to you? Then set yourself a goal, with actions, how you will do this.
