The thing is, having a dream can actually make you UNHAPPY. When our real life feels super different from how we want it to be, hopelessness can creep in. It drains our energy and can even lead us to make poor decisions.
The solution is to have a PLAN. I don’t mean a huge excel spreadsheet of timelines and goals (although if that’s your jam, yay you!). At one point in my life, that would have felt inspiring. At this moment with six kids as a single mompreneur, well….it feels a little daunting.
➡️Here’s the thing: a plan can simply be “the next right step”.
🌱So, maybe you want to change careers. Maybe the next right step is to jump on the internet and look at job postings to see what’s interesting to you. Or call a local community organization and offer to volunteer to get some real time experience of what it might be like.
🌱Maybe you want to feel better about parenting. So, today you look at baby pictures and listen to a TED talk about how to stop yelling at your kids.
🌱Maybe you can’t decide whether or not to end your relationship. So, today you spend some time Googling to research: what IS a healthy relationship? How does mine stack up against what’s important to me?
It’s just one day – one decision. To take action. To take the next right step.
But it’s BIG❗️ Because life feels amazingly different when you feel like you’re in charge of YOU and know where you’re headed.
Wherever you are, wherever you go, just know you are so so loved.
