It’s been raining in London, off and on, and I love listening to summer rain with the air filled with this delightful wet earthy smell. I had the garden door open, so could enjoy this relaxing treat without getting wet.
So, yes, I had a day off today (I usually work on weekends in my current job), and was endeavoring not to stress out over the soon approaching change in my work … yes, I am going part time, so that I can devote my attention more to my Young Living business.
… and “Stress Away” applied liberally LOL
I have always said to people, to never do this network marketing business and quit one’s job ‘cold turkey’. Certainly I have followed this rule so far. However, changing to part time in a couple of weeks (yes it is official), does feel like quitting ‘cold turkey’!
I did this on purpose for various reasons. I noticed how easy it is to coast along treating this business as a hobby, rather than a business with all the various demands, and have that ‘one day’ notion…
Also I have noticed how easy it is to stay in the comfort zone of ‘getting through the month somehow’. It is quite amazing really how we humans tend to find our lowest tolerance level, and if we can survive that, we tend to stay on that level with the occasional perks, … or even get tolerant with the ‘feast and famine’ cycle.
Sometimes creating a conscious discomfort generates the necessary ‘kick in the rear’ to actually get out of that rut and seriously get that adventure rolling …. Certainly I needed that!
Additionally, I am deliberately training my mind away from ‘my income is dependent on the amount of hours I work’, the time for money trade-off, to: despite all my efforts, hard work, etc., I am not the source of money. Money is an energy and it flows where attention goes. If I allow fear, scarcity and lack to grip me, if I allow to resist the ‘not having enough’, my attention is on that … so I will continue having more of that.
If, however, I stop seeing myself as the source, and really start embodying the deep knowledge that God is my Source, and in His universe are all the resources I could possibly ever dream of going through me, if I choose to start being the co-creator and take aligned action, step by step, then my focus is on the abundance available to me.
It is a leap of faith I am willing to take….
