You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own, and you know what you know.
And you are the one who'll decide where you'll go.
Oh the places you'll go.
You are the only one who can decide where you will go. Where are your feet taking you?
My feet take me to wonderful places. I am very happy being me. I can steer it anyway I want. I don't have much but hey what I have got I use wisely now.
My feet will be taking me many places in 2010. I hope yours will too.

"True peace is not just freedom from fear, but freedom from want." ~ Barack Obama (at his Nobel Peace Price acceptance speech)
In what ways are you keeping peace?
How can you be free from want?
I am keeping peace by going inside and truly knowing myself. This is a daily undertaking and one that is sometimes challenging. I want many things for myself and my family yet I know that we are all so very lucky and I am grateful for that. It would be icing on the cake but that's not to say that the cake tastes bad without it.....

The sun never says to the earth,
"You owe Me."
Look what happens with
A love like that,
It lights the Whole Sky.
Where in your life are you feeling owed in some way?
Like the brilliant Wayne Dyer says....How can you want something more for someone else than you want it for yourself?
I feel like I am owed respect by people around me but sadly this isn't always the case and sometimes doesn't work out the way I would like. This is something I need to look at and stop expecting from external sources. I like Wayne's question as it makes me stop in my tracks and think from a different perspective. Try it for yourself....

“When what you’ve always done stops working, it’s simply an indication that a shift is about to occur. A new phase of your life is trying to emerge. Let it be born.” Unknown (by me anyway)
What can you do in order to let the new phase begin?
I have recently let go of my coaching business. I thought this would be way harder to do than it actually was. One day I really wanted to do it and then just as quickly I realised that I was running a business to make a living and stressed myself out about it. I realised there were more productive ways of earning a living than constantly striving for your own thing.
My ego and need to be wealthy has diminished enough to enable me to let it go without feeling a real loss. As soon as I did let it go I had quite a few inquires about coaching and those I may take on (but only if they are really keen to make massive changes or ready to do the work it takes).
I started my new position with a great Not-For-Profit (NFP) on the 30th November and I am loving it so far. I can now feel at ease and enjoy giving back to my clients on many levels.
I am going to write an article and post on my Safe Space blog re leaving the old you behind but first I am enjoying learning my new role. Thank you for all of your support.
