The summer is wrapping up once more. For many of you this means that the "school year" routine is beginning.
But- What if? What if you could spend more time with your family all year? What if you could go on a prolonged adventure, and not just a short annual vacation? What if there are ways in which your life could be a lot more interesting and fulfilling?
Those who know me know that I LOVE traveling, and also that my parenting style is attachment parenting. This means that I had to be creative when it came to work, so that I can work from anywhere, and work a very reasonable number of hours a week. The biggest key to creating that life-style, was believing that it was possible. I have clients who resign to spending many hours away from home and their families- often unnecessarily so. One client of mine was afraid to stand up to her boss and request to continue to work remotely after getting vaccinated- so that she could spend two more hours a day with her kids- instead of commuting. For most of us the biggest issue standing in the way of a better life, is our MIND-SET! As individuals we need to stop accepting such extreme sacrifices and work-conditions, and begin to believe-in and create a balanced life. As a society we need to re-think our priorities and question the way of life that some of our governments are telling us is "normal".
During the pandemic I started following a few YouTube channels of families traveling with their kids, homeschooling them, and working digitally. I found them so inspiring! Here are people who gave up the illusion of safety, who asked themselves "what kind of life is right for my family?"- instead of just copying the Joneses. Here are people who get to spend most of their time with their kids- enjoying the precious years we have before our little ones leave the nest. One family ("World Towning") spent two and a half years driving an RV to every country in Europe with their two kids. Another family (forgot the channel's name) were traveling around the US, living in a camper- as a family of 9!!! I, of course, am waiting until my youngest one is old enough to enjoy traveling (and for the pandemic to be over) so we can go on our first long adventure. The excitement I am already feeling over it is my indication that I will make it happen. No fear. No doubt. Just excitement and gratitude for what's to come ;0)
I couldn't have even dreamed about this life before I discovered Hypnosis. I was stuck. I was working in a scientific research lab, so my dreams of a life of travel seemed impossible. I was afraid of making a huge change, of taking big risks. I was also afraid of what people would think- and say. Luckily, I no longer give a hoot about what anyone thinks of my life choices. I now see opportunities everywhere. I come up with creative solutions and ways of getting what I want without making big sacrifices. I "work" hard- but it never feels like work. I am productive, because I no longer waste mental and physical energy in worrying. I take "aligned action"- so things tend to work out for me. And now I enjoy helping other people create their dream lives. What else can I ask for? Life is good.
Wishing you a life that is satisfying and that exceeds your wildest dreams,
