The Power of Saying Yes
What if you just said “yes” and took the leap through your journey in life? I recently had the utter pleasure to be hosted by Olivia Howell and Jenny Dreizen of Fresh Start Registry on their podcast, A Fresh Story. I appreciate the space they held for me and my story; they were both gracious and magical.
Following the Breadcrumbs
In this episode, I share my story of how I went from job to job with varying levels of fulfillment, while continuously having the feeling that there had to be something more. Throughout, I was learning and experiencing, and figuring out what I didn’t want to do. Looking back, it is now easy to see how each step (even the ones that felt like missteps) was a breadcrumb trail leading me to my purpose.
A Fresh Start – Over and Over Again
In my Fresh Start journey, I’ve learned a few key takeaways: 1) Just because your parents (or anyone else) had a specific idea for your life, the choices are yours to make; 2) Stand for yourself and the life you want to have, which means saying no to everything that isn’t aligned with that life; 3) Get clear on what you need and who you are and what is at the core of your value system, and find a way to connect that to your career choices; 4) Start over as often as necessary, anytime you assess your life to be less than your ideal.
A highlight from the podcast:
“Then you have a choice to make. And I think listeners – if you’re in this situation, or have been or if you ever find yourself in the situation – you will know that it’s a fork-in-the-road moment in your life, where you decide. Because I love to say, ‘the way you do one thing is the way you do everything.’ Oftentimes, if it’s showing up in one place it’s showing up in other places in these really subtle ways. Because it’s your ego, protecting you from something.”
