With The Band
You have been waiting on or hoping for something that never materializes.
Something promised does not happen.
You don't get that job, the promotion, acceptance to a program, or approval for a loan.
No matter how hard you push or pull, the door stays closed.
When things just aren't going you way...
How do you handle disappointment?
What advice has helped you to navigate the roads of life?
Did it pull you back from a cliff?
Give you direction or inspiration?
Share your best advice about ANYthing.
What makes your heart sing?
That question is a bit hippy-dippy, even for me. But what I mean is...
What is your passion?
What do you love to do?
What is it that gives you perfect peace when you allow yourself to be lost in it?
Who do you love to spend time with?
What makes you truly happy?
If you can answer those questions, you have a good idea what makes your heart sing. And you have a good idea what thing or person might deserve more focus in your life.
A little more than a year ago, I was a victim of workplace bullying. The bullies got me fired from two jobs and as a result, I had a mental breakdown. It wasn’t pretty.
I’ve worked in one specific field for the last ten years, but I promised myself I would never go back to it because they had ruined it for me. I let my certification lapse. I gave up. If it weren’t for the love I got from The Band, I don’t know how I would have survived.
Today I am going back to work.
Not just any work, either. I’m going back into my chosen profession and I’m excited about it. I love my job and always have, even when it was stressful and exhausting, so going back to it is a wonderful feeling.
My dose of happy is my new job and the knowledge that the bullies may have hurt me, but they didn’t win. I won’t let them!
What's your Happy?
Don't think you have one? Look harder. Something will make you smile today.
We want to know!
Share it with the world on your blog and then link up below, tweet it out (hashtag #DOHMonday #WithTheBand) or share it on Facebook. Whatever you want to do, do it. Just find a bit of happy in this Monday!
Freedom is different for every person.
It can be focused on doing something, or not doing something.
Freedom makes me think of flying - soaring above problems, being responsible only for myself and my choices, and feeling the cold wind against my face.
What does freedom mean to you? How do you set yourself free?
