Ever wanted to do something different, but found yourself hesitating because of the unfamiliar? Getting out of our comfort zone can be scary and often confusing. I know, because I was forced to ‘do without’ after the hurricane!
After losing my job (of many years), I discovered that working for temp agencies wasn’t paying the bills. I collected Unemployment benefits, and job-searched. But opportunities are rare for an over-60 grandmother, whose entire career had been?” data-entry & customer-service. My knees ached, my feet hurt, my back ached, and I never had enough money left for steak! I wore the same clothes day after day, because my wardrobe was just that limited.
This was my reality-check!
After a lot of soul-searching, I decided to start looking within. “Was I it possible that I was doing something wrong?”
Sometimes, when life deals us ‘rough time’, we have to the best of it, and decide keep going. What I realized was that my trend of thought was actually holding me back.
You see, I decided that I wasn’t good enough, or that I’d be overwhelmed before the task even began!
I had to admit my weakness was a
Lack of confidence!
Sounds simplistic, but actually, it was frightening. I was hungry enough, alone enough, ‘without-something-to-do-today’ enough, to sit still for hours! And think! “What’s really going on?”
Soul-searching hurts, but it’s necessary for my future. It’s staring in the mirror at the one you don’t want to see!
