As I write this post, I’m not exactly in the most excited mood. I’ve been suffering literally all day with a hangover from hell which I can only put down to the fact that I’ve had two unscathed weekends away and my night out last night with hubby was my major payback. Better to have happened here at home rather than at Center Parcs or beautiful Barcelona!
So why am I getting excited about my life?
Well, if you’ve been following my blogs, you would have read about how three women changed my life at a workshop I attended in Bristol. One of those women was a lady called Andrea Callanan. She made such huge impression on me (read the blog Yesterday Three Women Change My Life) and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity of a free webinar she was offering a couple of weeks ago.
So, I attended the webinar with a group of around 20 women, listening to Andrea talk through my laptop screen. She spoke about the kinds of insecurities and fears we face as women in business (saying that out loud is still weird for me!) and life in general. Talking about why we put things off, why we doubt ourselves and how it stops us moving forward.
At the end of the webinar, Andrea explained that she was about to run a new 12 week programme called ‘Get Excited About Your Life’. It covers;
Week 1 – Get Present Week 2 – Own Your Story Week 3 – Healing Week 4 – Acceptance Week 5 – Self Worth Week 6 – Self Care Week 7 – Kick Ass Mindset Week 8 – Desire Week 9 – Intention Week 10 – Vision Week 11 – Planning Week 12 – Execute, Achieve, Celebrate.
Whilst this looks like it will be quite intensive and Andrea has already warned us that it will take us to places emotionally that we probably won’t want to go (I’m sure the loss of Mum will come up more than once) but I am genuinely excited about changing my current mindset.
I literally find myself constantly swinging from a kick-ass attitude of ‘I can do this’ to self doubting thoughts of ‘I’m gonna f@ck this up’! I’m forever playing the following questions over in my mind;
Can I really make a go of my blogging and working for myself?
Will anyone want to work with me?
Can I work with companies and help them with their Social Media?
Do I know enough?
It’s true, I didn’t jump into Andrea’s course straight away. Why? The fear. That bloody fear and self doubt of course. Questioning; Will I have the time? Can I afford it? After having a night to sleep on it, I decided that it was well worth investing in myself and took the plunge and signed up!
Over these next 12 weeks this course will help me get over these insecurities which in turn will help me to plan and building my blog ‘Tales of a Mother’s Daughter’ and set up my VA and social media training business.
I really look forward in sharing this journey with you and passing on the things that I have learnt… and it all starts tomorrow!
Until next time,
Love and hugs from TOMD xxx
