What is your why?

As I go about being frenzied over all of the how too’s, the what all it takes and the must have to get your business going; I realize that the most important thing of it all is to know your Why? Why is it you feel you want to go into the vein of business or organization that you’ve chosen? Whatever the reason, it will need to be a strong as the heart that beats to keep you alive.
No matter how well you have your ducks in a row, it is the why, that will sustain you through it all. It is the why, that will push you through, when no one else believes in you, or when you don’t believe in yourself. It will be your conscience when you don’t feel like pursuing past your comfort zone.
I am learning a lot in the process of my journey to pursue what I know is my purpose in life. First I had to get to know myself. I mean really know, that included the bad, and the ugly as well as the good. Believe me it wasn’t and isn’t easy. There were aspects of me that I did not want to face or admit. There were weaknesses that I wanted to overlook and focus on the strengths instead.  I know that in order to be as real and effective as I want, and need to be in my line of work.  I had to take the challenge first. I had to first learn about me, how I function, why I operate, think or work the way I do. Where did my behaviors and beliefs come from, and are they relevant for where I am headed. Yea, like I said. What is your why? Once you get to the bottom of it all you will be amazed at the level of growth and development that you will experience. You will be able to clearly say, this is why…

The Change

These damn hot flashes! I know it’s pretty harsh language, but just how I feel. Going through “the change” is such a life altering event, no matter how much you read about it or others tell you how it’s going to be, the experience is yours and yours alone. No one can truly prepare you for all that You will go through while experiencing “the change”
Right now my room is at 47 degrees, yea but I dare not warm it up because the slightest bit of warmth signals my body to turn up the heat and there I go, breaking out into a sweat, throwing off the blanket, sweater or whatever I’m wearing. The moment I cool down of course I’m freezing! And there it begins the back and forth, clothes off, clothes on. There is no rest, I’ve tried the creams, oils and vitamins. Some days are better than others. Nights are the worst, with the tossing and turning I wake up tired. Oh well, I guess I’ll just ride with it today and see how far it takes me into its throws, the change.
