There are so many ways I draw on inspiration in my life.
A big one is travel.
If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know I just returned from 10 days in Portugal and Marrakech.
When I travel, I bring my computer along to stay on top of email, but generally, I take a step back from work (hence, the lack of blog posts). It’s in these quiet, unplugged moments that I gain inspiration and re-fuel my tank so I can power ahead once I get back to life in NYC.
But this trip was different. Different because I felt inspired in another way. I took some time to really think about my health coaching business in a peel-back-the-layers kind of way: we’re talking how I run it, my marketing approach, my brand – everything.
Usually, this is when some big project is born and catchy blog posts or book titles are brainstormed.
Not this time.
This time, something different happened. I had some feelings of being unsettled about the way things are and wanting to make some big changes – shake things up.
In these moments, when things quiet down and our intuition speaks, we have to pay attention. These are the feelings that drive change and propel us forward. It’s brushing them under the carpet that keeps us stuck.
I’ve had a busy year.
I’ve learned to say “no” more often and have even pushed a lot of my own ideas and desires aside while we plan the wedding of our dreams.
But if the thoughts I had on vacation mean anything, I have a feeling that change is coming, it won’t be tomorrow or even in 6 months, but I have a feeling big things are on their way … and I hope you’ll come along with me.
