Yesterday was a productive day. Wasn't it? (OK, stop laughing) What do you mean that I'm back at work. My body's sleep cycle didn't say so. Here's a truth. Well, mine at least. Yesterday was the first 'day' back at work after the vacation Holiday where I slept in, walked around in my pj's and generally relaxed. 'Cause, Oh, aren't we supposed to? Society give us permission, right?
Yes, I did have clients over the holiday season. Really fantastic rocking! Women. Yet, somehow, without my conscious knowing, I started to say: “I'll get to that next year.” Then poof, Monday was next year. OK, where is my list?
Hope you are getting the humor here:-}}
Then, I got a phone call. My ½ day retreat client was ill and needed to cancel. Then, within minutes, I got anther phone call where I asked a simple question about space for my upcoming Jan 11 Magical Possibilities workshop. This set off a cascading chain of calls, appointments, meetings and generalized synchronicity that has me looking back today with wonder. What fun to be in this flow of life moving in answer to my request for space.
Magical Possibilities & Goal Setting 2011 will now be held at Unity Church of Knoxville which gives us a wonderful space in which to move around, create, write, draw and VISUALIZE our choices for this coming year. There is the business side.
What I also got to do while looking at that space was spend time with a friend I dearly love and chat with her while I helped take down Christmas decoration off a top shelf -cause Oh I'm tall. Hearing about her family, their holiday, her plans and generally catching up. The three wise men had nothing on us as we solved the world's problems! In an hour!
I then drove west to look at an office space that I had been considering. Yes, I love skype for those out of state and international clients. Plus, having folks out to my home office to work for ½ and whole day retreats is still my favorite. Huge, much and lots of stuff gets shifted, talked about, moved, decided upon and LIFE changes here. Only, office space in Knoxville gives me another component of privacy to add in meeting up with folks. Coffee shops are fine. Office space allows for that next level of depth to be added.
As I spoke with Denise about Rhama, I began to realize that what I had been missing was community. Having ownership of my skills now allows me to move into an inner space where I am ready to engage with a broader, like minded set of entrepreneurs.
Their website reads: “Rhama is comprised of the businesses of professional, experienced practitioners who provide expert consultation, counseling and healing. We understand the importance of quality holistic healing spaces and we are committed to the highest standards of professional services.”
Yep, that's me. My first meeting with the entire group of professionals will be this Sunday for the monthly meeting. I'll keep you posted about my impressions.
(Not done. There is more!)
From there, I called another friend to see if she would meet up with me for dinner. She could and there was this lightening round of catching up about just born twin great nieces, flying during a snow storm, being stuck at airports and general oh's, ah's and how was that's- all over delicious soup and sandwiches.
Then I went on to our monthly meeting of Complementary Health Education Organization [CHEO] to hear another friend of mine talk about what she loves to do. Meeting, greeting and learning about other healing modalities from fellow practitioners. YUMMY!
So the theme through all of this? How much did I get marked off my list? What's your guess?
Friendships, relationships, being open to seizing possibilities. Being simply me. That person who adds value, layers of ideas, sees opportunity and imagines how I fit into that world. Risking, taking, breathing, laughing, receiving.
Some of the rest of you might have read that and been exhausted. What? You stacked how much into an unplanned day? Who do you think you are? Super- silly? Super-busy? Crazy?
Nope, simply being me.
Others of you might have spiraled under at the call from the client saying they were not coming?
Nope, reschedule. Find this creative space for what wants to fill that time. Reading, writing, traveling, talking. Oh yes, did I mention talking. I do that really well too.
Again, simply being me.
So, here is my call to action: What are you planning to allow into your life for 2011?
What unexpected turn or seemingly disappointment will you expand into unknown opportunity?
How will you be within yourself as your life grows, expands and evolves? Cause it is.
Remember, I'm here to support you. Let's talk. Schedule some time to meet up – virtually, in person at the coffee shop, in my new office space, or here on the land of beautiful trees.
