When you take a big leap or risk in life, it can be easy to fall into a mode of desperation when the going gets tough. In my case, I’ve transitioned into part time work to focus on pursuing my own passions, however, I still have commitments but with half of the money I was once earning coming in. If I was in this position a couple of years ago, I have no doubt that I would have immediately fallen into a state of panic. In fact, I would have never been as risky as to voluntarily put myself in this position. I would have stayed in my ‘safe’ full time job that was draining me mentally and physically, all because of fear.
I’m overjoyed that my perspective on life has changed enough that I’m in this position, however, it is really important for me to constantly regulate my thoughts and emotions and remind myself that I am powerful beyond measure. If I’m worrying, I’m setting myself up for failure. However, if I remain in a state of gratitude and positive expectation, I can only attract situations that work out in my favour, no matter what they look like to begin with. For me, if I am to grow, it’s important to push myself beyond my comfort zone which will most likely involve situations that are uncomfortable in order for me to encounter opportunities that I never thought possible before.
I’m constantly looking out for the silver lining and subsequently, constantly finding it.
