Yesterday, I didn’t want to work.
I had tons of excuses.
They all seemed valid.
But the bottom line was, I didn’t want to.
I kept trying to force it. ‘Come on Self’, I said, ‘tackle the to-do list.’
I bet you’ve had this experience! So you know it feels heavy, powerless and frustrating.
Then I had a conversation with my brilliant friend, Therese.
“Don’t work,” she said. “Follow what your soul wants today. Isn’t that what you teach?”
Oops, I did it again!!!
I was trying to force creative work to happen, when what I needed was to do what brought me joy.
I stopped. I wrapped Christmas gifts for my family, thinking about each person and how much fun it was to choose exactly the right gift. I made fudge for my dad. I added twinkly lights to my display of Santa Clauses. I connected with my side-by sisters.
I rested my tired body.
And today, I woke inspired.
This is the feminine way of doing business.
It’s not an excuse to put off doing what needs to be done. But an internal tuning fork.
Yes, I could have forced myself to continue yesterday, but I’ve already completed more this morning than I could if I had worked all day yesterday. And the work is so much better.
I have the outline for a brand new exercise that I’ll be sharing at my live event. I have a list of experts I want to share at the event. And I know who I want to invite.
I feel aligned and happy.
Please share how you have experienced the feminine way… or where you struggle with it.
