Following My Intuition
For months now I have been struggling with feelings of frustration and anxiety.
Life hasn’t been cooperating like it has in the past. As I have been struggling with my own money challenges I have had to shift much of my focus away from SPFS. Much of my effort has been spent at bringing in work in my main gig, Liz M Raymond Professional Business Organizer. PBO not only provides me with funds to support my day to day financial responsibilities, but it also helps to fund SPFS (my baby) while we are growing. While focusing on one, the other loses out, or at least temporarily suffers. I am excited for the new opportunities and successes that members of our planning team have found in their lives and businesses. With their successes their priorities require a shift.
With the planning of the 2nd Annual Single Parenting for Success Symposium in full gear I noticed that there were important aspects of the event that were not coming together. I began to feel that the Universe was sending me a message. Someone pointed out that March 26th – the selected date – was on Easter Weekend — my heart sank and I began to panic. I knew with Easter attendance at the Symposium would be very low.
My vision to create a fabulous event that would bring more awesome resources and celebrations to #Ottawa #SingleMoms and #SingleDads was slipping away. “Open Talk” is important. There are conversations that need to be had and an opportunity to share with each other that would release stigmas and discomfort. This event matters too much to leave it to chance.
I sat quietly in my room on the edge of my bed. No tears were shed, only deep breaths were taken as I closed eyes to ask my guides what I should do. It wasn’t long when I allowed myself to listen intently to my intuition – another date had to be chosen. I picked up my cellphone and called a dear friend of mine, someone who has been with me from the start. The more we talked, the more she could hear that my intuition had already given me my answer. A new date was booked and another plan put in place. A new opportunity has appeared to create more mini-events in 2016 AND still celebrate #SingleParentsDay as it is meant to be celebrated — in 2017. A new calm fell over me as I trusted this is the right decision.
Sitting quiet and listening and learning to trust your intuition can help make decisions much easier.
