I hope that you are all well and that you are gearing up and preparing for the new fall season that is quickly approaching. Weather it’s back to school and or if it’s time for your loved ones or children to head back to school and if you find yourself questioning where you are in life, are these the cards you’ve been dealt? Is there more? What’s going on? Should it be so hard? What’s next? Where do I go from here?

Believe me, all these questions are not only normal, they’re right on time. I have noticed and through an un-scientific poll of my peers and friends, it happens to us all and around this time of the year. With new seasons come new thoughts, questions and changes.

It happens to me on a semi-regular basis! Believe me my friends have their hands full when I’m going through it…but the day after the turmoil in my mind I am able to let the dust settle and see clearly once again. I do have some suggestions about successfully managing these potentially confidence breaking self talks that have you questioning and revamping everything.

First off, take a breath …it really is OK. If you are feeling that you need to make changes, it’s maybe because you really have to – go with it. Let the powers that be guide you, because there are always answers when you try listening and looking for them. Speak what your desires are to the universe. It’s a magnificent thing that happens – once you speak your dreams to the universe. It may not happen right away, but there are answers and things that will present themselves to you to make you work towards it and or show you that what you are asking for may not be for you.

Also, subconsciously the minute you admit and speak your truth to the universe you will begin to work towards it. You have to believe in your abilities and work towards that ambition and energy coming to fruition. It is not only possible, it is doable.

A step further to speaking your truth is creating a vision board. These boards can present themselves in a variety of ways. If you are more visual cute out pictures of things you want and want to aspire for. This is not being materialistic, this is being visual. (Honestly be realistic in your desires but one the less put it out there!) An example would be if you cut out a picture of an Aston Martin and put it on your board, the reality is you may not get that vehicle but you may have a car paid off in full and not have to worry about payments. It’s all about perspective. It may be easier to write out your goals instead of having images. Or combine the two – I have found it best for me to combine them. Seeing images and the words next to them are motivating for me. You may be on the fence about this, but humor me and try it. By writing down what you really want you are braving your own self and admitting that you want more. At times, we are our own worst enemy. This is a way to be honest with yourself and really reach for the things in life no matter how big, small, materialistic, academic outrageous…just do it!

You can separate your goals in many ways; financial, personal, career for example. It will also make it easier to stay on track and devote the right time and energy towards them respectively.

I do know that this can be a challenging and frustrating time when you are thinking and seeking a difference but it can also be a very rewarding and inspiring time. I wish you all luck and encourage you to push yourself. The changes doesn’t have be huge, but honor yourself by not asking the “What if’s” and knowing the answers!

Good luck!
