Life takes it. And, this is not a bad thing. In fact, it can feel quite good. We just have to make sure work is working.
Perhaps a name change? 😛
When I was skating it seemed that there were only two options: work or drama. What a horrible (false) binary. What a horrible thing to learn as a woman. Or an enlightened person.
Seriously. If skating wasn’t working, you picked a fight. And, by you I don’t mean me. (Anger scares me. But, that’s another post…) But, the fight came quick for many many beautiful girls. And, a spirited Russian or two. Skating work was peppered with drama. And, for some teams, drama was peppered with skating.
I remember, when we saw a certain someone meaninglessly stretching at the boards we all knew something was going down… Round One: Paso!
Digression: I guess then there is an implicit third in the binary: Spectating. But, you don’t want to be a spectator in your own life. Hmpf!
The bottom line is you gotta make work start working…
Here is a tip on how to ‘make it work’ :)!:
– Get Autonomous –
“Having a strong sense of controlling one’s life is a more dependable predictor of positive feelings of well-being than any of the objective conditions of life we have considered,” says [researcher Angus] Campbell. (Source)
This means: MAKE YOUR WORK MATTER TO YOU! Invest in what you are doing. Let the outcome have a point! The point being: your happiness!
Are you endorsing what you are working on? Can you?
And. If this seems impossible then start small. An itty-bitty little list of goals, projects and self-care.
Pick 3 things.
Now do them. (You can!) Tomorrow. On your authority.
Make your life work. For you. Sans drama.
Well. Maybe a little (Russian!) drama :P.
