Wow. I am 49 years old. Remember when your parents turned 50 and you thought “My parents are OLD!” And now, that I will turn 50 this year, I am thinking, “I am not OLD!”
50 is the new 40…and I mean that in a good way. I want a do-over for my 40’s. You know, the do-over that will be the responsible one (thought I was), or the saving $ one, (thought I was then) or the perfect parent, child, spouse, friend, co-worker one (which I damn well know, I wasn’t then)
So, to cram all of my ooopsies in one basket, I will make-up for these 49 years and make them
right BETTER than the last and come into my big 5 0 with no regrets, a few failures and a spiritual greatness that I know lives in me.
How will I make up a decade of shit into one year? I have no friggen idea! I am working on my GIFT, my ONE thing that I am so good at, even I can’t figure it out.
Your DREAM has to be greater than your FEAR.
My dream no longer consists of lavish clothing or posh cars and houses…a jet flight to shop in Paris with the BFF. The dream is to help others, be present in what is simple and relevant and make enough money to travel when and where I want to. There. I. said. it.
I do have some knowledge of business. Sales, marketing, promotion, relationship building, communication, phone skills, interaction, design, blue printing, goal setting, procedures and the list goes on. I have been coached by the best instructors imaginable through phone coaching, books, email, websites, online courses, webinars, academy’s, motivational speeches, podcasts. Whatever is available, I have probably heard of it, or been through the course. It is all ‘up here’ (as I point to my head) but where I want it to be is in my heart.
The knowledge and learning does nothing for a person unless you put it to use. Thanks. Just today, I was asked to join another training for ‘starting’ an online business. No, I don’t have another $2000 to invest. I already did that last year, and haven’t finished that course! You are probably saying….duh, ‘why not!??’
Ever go through that funky, depressing time where you don’t want to do anything, but sit and be? Make everyone, including your S.O. think that you are fine….smiling and carrying on like you’re in fricken BLISS?? YEP! I have had lots of those days over the last 2 years. Last year was the worst. I am quite sure my horoscope said the same thing. Bad year….however, I was looking forward to the year 2015….my birthday is on the 15th, it was the year of change for me and the first full year that I was officially an empty nester. Don’t get me wrong, I am truly grateful and blessed beyond words….I thank God everyday for my health and my families health.
I also know that God wants us all to use our gift. The gift we were given to share. The gift that only you can provide and that makes your heart sing. Being yourself, your true self.
Steve Harvey: “The most important 2 days of your life is the day you were born and the day you learned what your gift was.” How amaze balls!!!
So onward ho…to the infamous ‘gift searching’ land. I was once told. “Kristi, whatever you put your mind to, you achieve.” Let’s keep saying that, and work some magic upstairs with the BIG guy
Let’s all tackle fear in the a**, and get to our GIFT.
