I’m Back Sweetheart(s)!

I am back in the blogosphere ! Hellz yeah and it feels great ! I started suspecting I needed to get back to blogging and writing when my Facebook posts and ordinary text messages were becoming mini-little articles and storied essays. I’ve got so much going on in my life and the words are burning hot in my bones to tell all about it. I have a writing fever that won’t let me go. So here I am, not only back in the blogger’s captain chair, but navigating a brand new blog and website as well. Double hellz yeah !

I hired a life coach a few months ago, one of the best decisions I made in 2018… she has helped me as I’ve entered the uncharted galaxies of transitioning from earning a living as a factory worker to building a creative business that will allow me to be a full-time entrepreneur. The biggest hurdle to overcome has been my own Mindset.

A mindset is the grid by which we move and feel and have our being. I have possessed a mindset that has kept me from being able to imagine how to leave my lucrative job and embrace self-employment. It is as if I was convinced that only at the factory can I be financially secure. It has taken a few conversations with my life coach, and especially quite a few conversations with myself to dismantle the mistaken perspective that to remain financially secure I must continue to grit my teeth buckle down as a factory worker. I do not despise my job, by no means. But the desire within to be a full-time creative entrepreneur began to cause what some might refer to as holy discontentment, a kind of discontentment that is meant to point one toward the next leg of their journey. My holy discontentment finally became crushing to the point that I could not longer make my peace with it. I had to pay attention to the uneasiness that began to preoccupy my emotions and thoughts about what I was doing with my life.

Through all of that I finally discovered the RESOLVE I needed to be decisive about doing something about my holy discontentment with my job and my desire to be a full-time creative. That resolve led me to hiring a life coach, consulting with a financial adviser, and discovering within myself that yes, I have the guts and grit to make the leap of faith into a new way of life and a new way of earning. I am laying track day by night and day to exit my factory job. So much more to say about that (and believe me I will in future blog posts!) but for now I will say that getting a new website and blog up and running reflecting this new venture in my life is a big step in the right direction.

Thank you so much for paying attention to my path. I have made leaps of faith before and sometimes I have had to make them all alone without a single person cheering me on. Sometimes that is the way it has to be. But this time it is not like that. I have a tribe of friends, coworkers, neighbors and social media connections who are giving me their positive energy and rounds of applause for every milestone I hit, no matter how small or big. Just yesterday at work, a coworker approached me and said, “Pam, I want you to know that I am cheering for you, I really am.”

Wow. I was just WOW. I am a blessed woman with a full heart of gratitude that my leap of faith into the unknown is so much more JOY-FULL because of the kind-hearted souls who take time to speak into my life these spirit-nourishing words.

I am officially that older woman who calls everybody Sweetheart.

Thank you so much sweetheart(s) everywhere!

    This is going to be fun to watch unfold. I can’t help but be a bit envious you look like you’ve got it all going on. You have a really awesome vibe and story to tell. I think I might need a life coach. Congrats and good vibes to your new future. Pam

      Pam, my soul sister in Florida !!!!! I’m just a bit more down the path than you, but you have been rediscovering your creative desires and that is sooooo effin cool. If you can hire a life coach I totally recommend it. I love who my coach is and she is available long distance as she coaches via phone and video calls. Though if you find someone local that would be ideal…. def do your research for a good coach is worth every single dollar ! Seriously !!!!

      I look forward to the day you and I meet face to face <3 ....!

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks a lot!
