It seems like this week, I’ve been especially busy with appointments – and looking ahead to the next ninety days. Psychologically we’ve been trained from the school model that Fall is a time of new beginnings, and along with the seasonal changes, the energy of autumn inspires us into action. This energy of opportunity, along with the release and the “power of goodbye” from last week has officially taken effect for me. I’m realizing that the Universe really does abhor a vacuum. And so, it’s interesting to note that prospects that I haven’t heard from in a while are resurfacing, new opportunities are knocking on my door, and clients are asking for specialty services that I’ve been thinking of offering. I’ve also been able to make the time to teach Reiki at night as a matter of paying it forward and fulfilling a promise I made to myself last year. Since I’m an entrepreneur who values freedom, I’m fortunate to find pockets of time during the day – and at night – where I can fit in activities that don’t include work (though I love it), coaching, networking, chores or paying bills. With an hour or two, and sometimes more, I have the freedom to choose what I’d like to do. For me, and for you – there are lots of choices, and I’ve been inclined as of late, to enjoy myself, and do things without rules or limits (we only limit ourselves). On my calendar: swing dancing, shopping in a new gourmet market, fitting in a wine sampling during the day and taking an afternoon break to just “rest” – without an ounce of guilt. More often than not, I don’t plan an activity for those free times. Sometimes, I’m in the mood to just sit and write in front of the fire or create a new radio station on Pandora. It’s very freeing to just decide what you’d like to do, without judgment. There will always be work to do. There will always be business to catch up on. And until our last day. there will always be time. It’s what we do with it that counts. There’s only now. If we have to refresh our computer, why don’t we refresh ourselves? I’m making a habit of it more often. Maybe you’d like to join me
