It is hard to believe that it’s been almost six months since I last posted anything!
Life’s been ongoing of course! Made some moves (at the end of last year). which I had been planning for a while and had tied a lot of things to by saying when the moves happen, I will do this and that. Well, the moves have happened – mostly, so it is now time to start doing the ‘this and that’.
So I describe this new decade and new year as a time for #Becoming #Steppingintomypurpose #Steppingintomyfullpotential #mytime #anewjourney
This is an excerpt from a posting I made in a closed group I am a member of: “Over the years I have questioned what I do – I have worked in the charity sector for more than 19 years, but in the back end (support function) and have always said I don’t feel like I am making an impact. People would say, but you work in the charity sector & your organisation does this & that, & makes this & that impact and you are part of that; but I just wasn’t feeling it! This led me to discussions with my friend at various times over the years, to start a charity organisation in which I could be hands on; but it’s been all talk! (N.B. This year however, one of my personal objectives is to stop “building castles” in my head & start doing!” – This surmises this new journey I am on.
So all through January, I have been listening to podcasts! Some might say I am now a podcast junkie, but believe me; I have had so much motivation and uplift from these! I wish they had been around a few decades ago, perhaps I would have had the courage and encouragement to go do the things I dreamt of. I am however choosing to believe that now is the right time for me which and that’s why I have suddenly awakened to listening to the podcasts. I am also choosing to believe it is not too late to live those dreams – being in your golden years, doesn’t mean you can’t live your dreams! So this is #mytime to #makemydreamshappen and to #liveinmypurpose.
I have listened to tons and tons of podcasts (from as far back as 2014 recordings) and have found the interviews with several inspiring personalities inspiring and thought provoking; and have read several uplifting and motivating books. I listen to at least one podcast a day and have begun the habit of meditating in the morning (and of course listen to at least one podcast a day – more like 5 in all honesty, that’s what I do while on the traing). I am left feeling invigorated and believing it is not too late to #liveinmypurpose, so 2020 is the year to lay the foundation and begin the work towards achieving #mydreams and #livinginmypurpose.
Are you an #over50woman feeling listless, unfulfilled and/or confused about what next; or feeling “there has to be more to life”, if so, I invite you to join me on this journey. Of course, if you already started a similar journey, I’d be love to hear your insights.
Podcasts I have been bingeing on and think you might find useful (and picture of my apple podcast library) are shown below:
#ON purpose with #JayShetty #the mindvalley podcast with #VishenLakhiani
#The School of Greatness – Lewis Howes #Women of Impact with Lisa Bilyeu
#Addicted2Success with #JoelBrown and of course, #Oprah’s Super Soul Conversations
Books I have read in January which I have found really motivating and full of ideas:
- Atomic Habits by James Clear
- The Success Principles by Jack Canfield
- Napoleon Hill’s Keys to Success
For February: I plan to read a few more books and continue to develop my mind and receive inspiration by listening to more podcasts and reading more books. I also plan to put together a #visionboard and get back to #journalling.
