What are your priorities in who you want to be? I mean if you want to be the best teacher, a super sweet attentive Mom, a loving fun wife, a best friend to all your friends, an incredible pole dancer, a world champion ice skater, and . . . . . . the list goes on and on, right? If you want all that, how can you make any choices? Will you simply get stuck and do none of it? I’ve been giving this a lot of thought lately. It’s important to select two or three top wannabe’s to use in steering your choices for now. Your unselected choices are not dead, they’re just on hold for a little bit.
I have to be honest, I desire to make oodles of money to lessen the stress of my husband of being the primary bread winner, to increase the quality of life for my family, to save for retirement, to save for my children’s education, to feed the hungry, and . . . . . that list goes on and on as well.
My passions have not been delivering me the oodles of money to do all that. It’s time for me to take a step back and make making money a top priority so I may better serve my family. It’s time to make choices to make $$.
Yikes, I can’t believe I’m talking so bluntly with you all about making money. You know – there’s a little crazy taboo in society about not talking about money, right? I share with you as a part of my path of self discovery and being authentic. I like to share to create a spark of self reflection for you.
I used to think for quite awhile, if I get a ‘real’ job, I’m giving up on my dreams and divine path of self discovery. I now choose to give up that thinking that no longer serves me. I choose to make $$.
With that change in my thinking, I’m doing whatever it takes to best support my family. I have accepted a job, working 40 hours a week from home. This job literally dropped in my lap. I LOVE when the universe does that. I feel a sense of deep satisfaction in that I’m making real money at a real job. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been making money for years teaching and with my previous business, but it’s been more of a part time pay scale, not a full time business world kind of pay scale.
I choose the new job and I choose not give up on my dreams to be a public speaker. I desire to care for my family. I desire to inspire people to live life full out. With these choices as my source of guidance, I choose to return to the world of technology as a Project Manager and I choose to prepare a speech on an abundance of juicy self love for the Contacts and Compacts Networking event in Danbury in two and a half weeks (see www.JoniLowe.com Schedule for more information).
Having shared all that, I have to admit, I’m not going to let go of my desire to be a super sweet, attentive Mom and a loving, fun wife. I adore my honey and children.
What are your top priorities in who you desire to be? What choices are you going to make with that as your source of guidance?
