Sitting and Writing and Thinking and Dreaming

I’m back at the coffee shop.

I have been doing some writing on the next chapter. I can’t say it is very good, but I’m all about the shitty first drafts, so that’s okay.

I really came here because today is the final day of a webinar I’ve been taking  called “Transform Your Career” so I needed to be someplace with reliable internet. Of course, that excuse also justified the iced chai and decadent cookie purchase I made so that I could sit here for hours. 😉

As I sit here, waiting for the webinar to start, my mind whirls around my purpose, my goals, my dreams, and my hopes. How could it not, I am taking a Webinar aimed at people who want to change their careers. I have also been in the middle of an inconclusive change for years. So I sit and think about possibilities, hoping to find the answers in my words.

But really, I am just full of questions:

  • what do I really want to do with my life?
  • what are my strengths and how can I use them to find/create a fulfilling career?
  • how do I overcome my shyness and take advantage of my networking capabilities?
  • who can help me reinvent myself?
  • what makes me feel the most accomplished and fulfilled?
  • where do I begin when I feel overwhelmed?
  • what do I want to be when I grow up?

I feel change in the air. I know that something big is coming my way, I just need to have the courage and belief in myself to reach out and grab it.

Let the dreams begin.

    Wherever this journey takes you, you will do well. Dive in, even pretending you are playing a role if you must to overcome shyness. And remember. Only people who are very good at many things suffer from this. 😀

      My shyness is weird. I mean, I think its more a problem of not wanting to look like I need help then really being shy. I don’t like putting mys elf out there to meet people, but I’m okay if someone approaches me. Maybe I am just nuts.

      I like the idea that I’m simply good at many things. 😉

    Think hard about change. It rarely happens in a blink. Rebuilding takes time. Transformation is no easy process. Patience is the byword of your life. You will know it in your bones when it is time to know. Who you are. Who you will be. Why. When all your cards are in your hands, play them. First you must know they are the right cards with your name on them. One step at a time. Otherwise, you trip.

    Sounds like you’re asking all of the most important questions–many of the ones I do, at least. You are moving in the right direction, my friend.
    Hugs,

    I can’t believe you have the discipline to sit through a webinar! haha! I’ve thought about several but can’t make myself do it! 🙂 I’m pretty sure you could do anything, Lisa- most people aren’t nearly as introspective. 🙂

    Lisa, what critters says is true: most people are not that introspective. It would never occur to me to even ask those big questions! But it’s good to think big and to have dreams.
