I took four days turned my phone off and went to play in the snow. It took me a while to let go of not having my phone on me. I kept thinking of the work I should be doing. I heard my inner coach say you definitely needed this, you can’t let go! I took a nice deep breath and started to let go. I had left a good plan in place for while I was gone. I prepped, I delegated, and I let go.
I will be taking a few lessons I learned home with me. Like turning my ringer off when I don’t need it on. I will be thinking more about when I really need the ringer on.
I had a great moment in the snow as well. I realized a deep seated fear. I looked at it, understood how it had served me in the past and protected me when it was necessary. I felt a moment of gratitude but also let it know that it no longer was needed. It was time to go, it no longer serves me.
I know that I will have work to do to fully erase this fear, and I may always practice caution but I will no longer let it keep me from reaching my full potential.
Go play in the snow, or frolic on the beach, or dance in a park. Just go take a little time for yourself and see if you can’t hear that inner voice saying ‘it’s time to reach the next level’.
