After my beautiful breathe out of 2015 into the ocean that divine Sunday in mid-December, something intriguing bubbled up…
I remembered a trip I took to Burleigh Heads last year. There was a split intent for that week – on one hand I needed time and space to complete a brand new webinar that I was excited to be putting together.
On the other hand I was going through a period of deep internal healing and needed to honour that with space and support for my body and spirit (because this internal healing work is such an integral part of my business growth).
A week in Burleigh at a luxury oceanfront apartment seemed to tick both boxes.
And while I got almost the whole webinar project finished - ready to hit send to the world - the truth was that my body wanted more time and space to complete the healing process first.
There was more than one time that week that I caught myself almost scolding my body “What bad timing, this work can’t wait…”
I stopped myself there.
OMG – who’s deadline was I playing to?
I have no boss!
I create my own rules!
I run my business how I feel….
And the truth was – I wasn’t feeling it!
Call it a ‘gut feel’, call it ‘intuition’ or simply call it ‘putting my body first’.
Either way – I had the choice!
I had the CHOICE and the power to create life, based on the needs of my body. How super awesome is that?!
I sent my team an email telling them that things were going on hold, shut my 20 browser tabs down one by one and did absolutely nothing for the next 4 days! (and not a lot the week after either to be honest)
It is all too common in today’s ‘new age’ way of running a business to talk about ‘following your truth’ or ‘working with ease’, but learning to truly live from that place is a journey.
Because I decided to hold off on launching my new project for a few more weeks, it created space for me to birth the idea of documenting the journey of the ladies in my UPswing Mastermind program, which led to the ‘Behind the Scenes’ series I have now filmed.
Through my own business journey I have learnt to put me and my health first (even if sometimes it takes me a few days to catch myself when I forget) and as with everything else I have learnt along my path so far, I love nothing more than passing my lessons on to others.
The ‘Behind the Scenes of UPswing Mastermind’ series is HERE. There are 14 ladies who took part in these interviews - they all have such different stories - so do browse through to find the journey that most speaks to you.
I invite you to grab yourself a cuppa and enjoy!
