What is the concept of Rediscovering Yourself and Rebirth?

Each day is a new beginning.  The sunrises and the sunsets. Time to release the old and start again.  Wiping the slate clean.  It’s often difficult to release bad situations, relationships or past regrets.  Rediscovering is about looking forward to the future and letting go of the past, which is holding us back on what we really want in life.  When you watch a sunrise it affirms a brand new day and life continues to go on. In the cycle of life, plants died in the fall and rebirth in spring. There is a time to end and a time to begin.  The challenge is facing the fear of transition or change and be willing to rediscover yourself.

Angela talks about rebirthing the Body. Sometimes your body needs to restore so your natural rhythms can come into sync and you can rebirth your spiritual energy or reinvigorate your aspirations.

Creating a “Fallow field” for the Personality Habit of Pushing.  Giving yourself time to slow down.   Become in rhythm with your needs, nature and not rush.  Modern Society forces you to rush and it is becoming faster.   How do you say – NO and find your natural rhythm? Letting go.

On May 11, 2019 Angela will be doing a Movement Meditation ~ Align with Nature in Sydney Australia.  https://www.facebook.com/events/308427649823591

Feeling Stuck in a Dead-End Job?

How do you know when you are in a dead-end job?

I have spoken to a lot of people who feel they are stuck in a dead-end job.  When Sunday comes around they dread thinking about going into work the next morning.  On Monday mornings they hit the snooze button multiple times and force themselves out of bed.  On the way to work, they push themselves with positive affirmations or the opposite with “I hate my job” self-talk.

🦋  Do you feel like you could do your job in your sleep?

🦋  Are there no advancement opportunities where you work?

🦋  Do you feel hateful and resentful when you walk through your workplace?

🦋  Do you get any acknowledgement for a job well done?

Well, here are some questions below to ask yourself.  Answer them with the first reaction you have.

🦋  Am I learning any new aspects in my position?

🦋  Are my job duties challenging to me?

🦋  Do I enjoy going to work everyday?

🦋  Am I motivated and strive to increase my productivity level?

🦋  Do I feel I am making a difference?

🦋  Are my coworkers positive at work?

🦋  Am I positive at work?

If you answered no to these questions, you may be feeling stuck in a dead end job.

What are some options to improve my career situation?

Create a Career Journal to keep track of your career goals, action steps, certifications, accomplishments, achievements, and references all in one area.

Making or adding to your career journal is a great way to be organized and to refocus on your career path.

What’s in a Career Journal:

  • Career goals and ideas
  • Keep track of career progress
  • Lessons learned
  • Coaching strategies
  • Advice from mentors
  • A private place to vent career disappointments
  • Keep positive affirmations and quotes
  • Gain a new perspective
  • Resume, cover letters, interview tips, interview questions, thank you letters, recommendations, references and certifications
  • Mission statement and values
  • Develop a career action plan
  • Keep motivated and inspired
  • To celebrate the small successes

How to Get Started:

  • Get a large binder; put all your career paperwork and ideas into it
  • Then decide if you want to put all your information into a computer document, on-line journal, a book journal, or a binder
  • Organize by categories
  • Add to your career journal regularly
  • Keep it in a secure place

Self-Reflection Questions for Career Journal:

  • What did I learn?
  • What did I accomplish?
  • Did I receive any compliments?  If so, what was it and who said it?
  • How did I make a difference?
  • Did I have any setbacks and how did it affect me?
  • How can I change my situation and get new career opportunities?
  • Where should I start networking to meet new people and look for better job opportunities?

What to consider:

Should I stay at my current employment or move on?

Make a list of “why to stay” and “why to go”.  Be upfront and honest. No holding back from the truth of the matter!

What’s keeping me here?

Are there other options?

If, so what are they?

  • A Transfer within the company?
  • Start job hunting?
  • Hire a career coach?
  • Go back to school and learn something new?
  • Retirement?

After making and reviewing the list to “stay or go”.  What did this list tell you?

Take Away:
Don’t stay in a job where there is no opportunity for advancement.  Take a leap of faith and try something different.  You will have a career purpose with meaning again.  Whatever decision you make to either stay or go; having a career journal will keep you organized and focused on your career goals as well as helping you be ready for the next career opportunity.

Building Better Relationships [Podcast] – Episode 5 – What is Being Authentic?

Episode 5 podcast – Angela and Patti discuss “What is Being Authentic?”

Click here to listen – “What is Being Authentic?”

Patti’s view: A truly authentic person doesn’t put on a mask and become someone they are not or change to fit in.  They express their true thoughts, feelings and views without apologizing.  Being authentic is having integrity and being true to oneself and others.

Angela’s view: Sharing without forcing people to agree.  Sharing without proving you are right or anyone is wrong.  Sharing from your heart.  Sharing to get understanding between people.  Being in the heat of anger and needing to stand up and fight for what you believe in.

What is being authentic mean to you?

It’s a New Year! Time for Reflection, Gratitude and Letting Go

It is a New Year!

Time for reflection, gratitude, and letting go (forgiveness).  As a Life Coach, I discuss a variety of topics that many people push under the carpet.  Sometimes these subjects are uncomfortable.  They are even awkward to me at times, but awareness and having strategies to cope is important to move on, let go and live a happy life.

Journaling and reflecting on the past year gets us geared up for whatever 2019 brings our way.

Here are some journaling and reflections prompts to get you started.

Reflection: Looking back at 2018

  • How was 2018?
  • What were some of the changes that occurred in your life?
  • What is a major lesson that you learned from your job in 2018?
  • What will you do differently in 2019?

Having gratitude reduces the feelings of envy, produces happy memories, lets us experience good feelings and helps with reducing stress.

Gratitude: Looking back at 2018

  • What was your biggest accomplishment in your personal life in 2018?
  • What was your biggest accomplishment in your work life in 2018?
  • What was one thing you’ve learned in 2018 that you’re thankful for?
  • What was one aspect about your health that you’re more grateful for?

Letting Go and Forgiveness: Looking back on 2018

One of my latest blog post I discussed Damaged Relationships and suggestions on how to halt unkind words.  Forgiveness is also part of the healing process.

In the past year, I have been seeing, reading and hearing about the Hawaiian Forgiveness Prayer called Ho’oponopono.  From what I have read the forgiveness prayer can be said in any order.  Repeating the prayer assist with moving forward toward forgiveness.

Ho’oponopono – Hawaiian Prayer of Forgiveness – Asking for forgiveness!

I’m sorry

Please forgive me

I love you

Thank you

 

Ho’oponopono – Hawaiian Prayer of Forgiveness – Forgiving Someone!

I’m sorry

I forgive you

I thank you

I love you

 

What am I grateful for?  I am truly thankful for my family, friends, and followers who support me with my coaching business. 🙂 I hope the journaling prompts and the Forgiveness Prayer help you in your life’s journey in 2019. ~ Patti

Day 2 of 5 Day Power of Positivity Challenge

Welcome to Day 2 of the 5 Day

Power of Positivity Challenge.

 

The Practice of Gratitude Activities for Day 2 ~ Power of Positivity Challenge

Today’s challenge is about discovering gratitude.  When we are grateful for what we have, we display positivity.  Feelings of gratefulness radiates outwardly and creates more positivity within us.  It is like an echo. What we shout out comes right back.

When one has a grateful heart, life is so beautiful! ~ Roy T Bennett

What do you appreciate in your life?

Gratitude is powerful.  People who are thankful have more positivity in life.  They feel happy, joyful and are much more compassionate towards others. The more you see your blessings. The more blessings you find.

Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns.  I am thankful that thorns have roses. ~ Alphonse Karr.

Some people could be given an entire field of roses and only see the thorns in it.  Others could be given a single weed and only see the wildflower in it.  Perception is a key component to gratitude.  And gratitude is a key component to joy. ~ Amy Weatherly

Which person are you?

What is your inner-voice saying to you?  Identify and recognize those feelings.  When negative thoughts or emotions enter your mind.  You have a choice to let them in or redirect those thoughts.  Are those whispers good for the soul?

Having a grateful perspective will become a beautiful reflection of you.  An expression of  joy, happiness and love.  Be so happy that when others look at you, they become happy too. Life is good; when you open your eyes and actually see it.

What do you see?

Day 2 challenge is to make a gratitude journal (notebook), and write at least one sentence each day of what you appreciate in your life.

 

Today’s Positive Affirmation:
Gratitude creates positivity!

 

Share your gratitude experiences in the “leave a reply” below. I would love to see your expressions of gratitude and maybe it will inspire others as well! ❤️
