Breaking habits. Goals. New Year's resolutions. Whether you are purposely creating change in your life or life's changes came up and bit you on the butt...hard, there's no better time to start than now.
As in, now, right now, this moment, yes now. Go ahead. Do something different. Scrunch up your face. Wiggle your fingers like you're casting a spell. Click your heels three times.
"But Coach Vanessa, that's just one little thing, and it's not even related to the ginormous changes I need to make to get my messed up life back on track."
Hold on, a little magic can go a long way.
No matter what form the change comes in, whether the task at hand is little or big, ANY movement in a different direction wakes up all the cells in your body and they start vibrating with joy, singing "Ah, newness!" Try it, it works. It takes a little practice and some deep listening, but eventually you'll hear and feel their little voices too.
Even if you don't know what the big plan is, haven't got the how figured out, are overwhelmed, burnt out, flabbergasted, or not sure what comes next...just do 1 thing differently. Repeat. Three times is a charm. A new thought will enter in. The light bulb will come on above your head. One of your Angels will whisper in your ear.
Yes, I think plans have their place. It's good to make goals. Great when you follow through with them and get the results you long for. And I have a soft spot for having a vision for your life, embodying your values, being of service, leaving a legacy.
But here's what's most important to me:
I want you to feel better.
Even a teeny tiny bit.
Sure, sometimes it takes awhile to turn things around, especially when they've been moving in a direction not of your liking for some time. There is a process to change, and it's good to line up the support you need to help you create the change you want.
In the meantime, while that process is unfolding and you are becoming more clear, I want you to feel better. Where you are. With what you have.
It's time. You are ready. Go!
