Like many, I’ve been working on improving myself personally, professionally, spiritually, etc. over the past number of years. (If you’ve found your way to this blog, I would assume you’re trying that too.)  My path has taken me many places and having to deal with many aspects of my life, including those I really would rather not have dealt with. Granted, I’ve still a long ways to go, but it seems like recently I’ve come to a nice resting place. The lessons I learn in one part of my life spill over into others. In many ways, how I’ve developed as a career consultant has shown me what I need to know elsewhere.

I’ve been single now for 4 1/2 years, and I think that I’ve learned more about what I’m looking for.  But more importantly, I’ve discovered more who I am at my core and what I bring into a relationship. I can see now that I was presenting myself pretty poorly before, and that’s probably why I wasn’t getting what I needed.

Now that I’m better equipped with that information, I can be more efficient in getting things done. I’ve been having better success at that since I’ve been meditating and just acknowledging what’s in front of me, and then making better choices about what to do next. Thus blog is a testament to that.

The one area I haven’t been good about is my health. As many of you know, I had a big health challenge when I caught an infection in the hospital while we were waiting for my mother to pass on after we took her off life support in September, and I’ve been fighting the uphill battle ever since. I’m about 97% better, but am still dealing with fatigue and not able to workout and accomplish everything I think I should. I’ve been fighting my body in that I should be better, and not looking at the reality that I’m still on the mend.

So, another growth experience for me. I need to be at ease with this and just let it be what it is.

What do you need to be at ease with?
