It is time to take your power back. 2014 was a pretty tough year for most people. I’ve blogged a lot over the past few years about letting go, and it’s as if 2014 was the year for anything we either didn’t willingly let go of, or that we didn’t know needed to be let go of, went. And things that needed to change, changed. Whether we felt ready or not.
For some it was relationships, for others it was jobs, homes or ‘stuff’. Even those of you who are pretty good at being aware, letting go and moving along in life had adjustments to make. You may have all the same things in your life, but you may have had to let go of some thoughts, ideas or habits.
The best most comfortable way to get through this year is to look forward. Stop looking back. What was, was. Everything you have experienced in your life brought you to this point. Look at it, bless it, and release it. Its time to step forward into your power. If you look closely (through meditation and/or practicing awareness of your thoughts), you will see that you created this for yourself. It is an opportunity, not a loss.
How to Start Over
There were many of you that were unhappy in your relationship. You kept dreaming of what it would be like if your spouse (or BF/GF), would just change, how happy you would be. The relationship was okay, but there were issues and you kept wishing for something just ‘different’.
Well, here is your chance. Your relationship could not be what you wanted it to be. The person you were with was not the person you wanted them to be. They could not be the person that you wanted them to be.
In losing that relationship, it has freed you up to get the relationship that you want. Of course it hurts. Allow yourself to mourn the loss. But look forward, not back. Don’t look back and glamourize what the relationship looked like (if it were perfect for you it would not have ended). Look forward. If you truly want a relationship, then look at yourself and who you are. Take back your power, become the ‘complete’ you and then find someone to share with. NO ONE WILL EVER COMPLETE YOU — ONLY YOU CAN DO THAT. And you must do that first before you go looking for another relationship.
If you lost your job, you created that in some way too. If you can take complete responsibility for where you are, you take back your power. Try not to get caught in feeling sorry for yourself. There are things you can do. They might not be exactly what you imagined, but your attitude will determine where you go from here.
Don’t glamorize your past job. If it was perfect for you in all ways, you would still have it. While you are taking care of what needs to be taken care of (financially), you need to take steps every day towards what you want for your dream job. You cannot rush it, and you cannot sit on your butt and do nothing, it won’t work. Do what you can do, no matter how small, and keep looking forward and thinking of what you want. Yes, you will need to take care of your responsibilities as best as you can. You may have to work long hours and you may have to spend your evenings studying or working towards your dream job instead of watching TV, but you can do it.
If you are stressed about money, then go out and make some. Make enough to get you by, you ALL have something you can offer someone. Cut back on things you pay for, and sell what you don’t need or aren’t using. Worrying about money while using your credit cards or getting more credit won’t help.
You may need to get a temporary second job, or sell stuff, but you all have something you can do. Whether its house cleaning, or yard cleaning, or any other skill you have, USE IT. When you are under financial stress, nothing LEGAL should be off limits. If you cannot pay people that you owe, then no amount to earn is too little. I am NOT saying to undercut your rate. I am saying that if you are stressed about money and there is an opportunity for you to work at a minimum wage job (instead of getting $25/hour, or doing nothing at $0/hour), then do it.
I am saying that if you have something to sell, it is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Sometimes there is no point to holding out for more. You don’t need to ‘give’ things away, but if it is something you have not used in a long time, then sell it. Between the money that you get, and the clutter that you clear out, you will be better off.
Most of all Don’t Look Back
Everything before, was before. You only have now. You are in a powerful time. Take advantage of your power, the power of 2015, and your ability to create your future and start moving into the life you want.
