When is it Time to Hit the Reset Button?
We forget that we are the heroes in our own lives and that we are the main character in our stories. Your name is the one above the title and yet, why is it that so often we act as though we are minor players? We’re hardly making cameos in our lives, and we hear it all the time, but really look at this is the stage of your life. Are you dancing centre stage in the spotlight, truly? Think about that, and if you’re not, it’s so simple to hit the reset button. And when you start treating yourself differently, when you start creating different boundaries around your life, watch how everyone else falls in line.
And you don’t have to wait and I want you to picture this image, that really helped me, of the mother duck. Because we always say we need to wait until we’ve got this skill, or oh I’ve got to wait until I get better at this, until I have more money to do this, until I can dress better, whatever it is. Think about the mother duck. She never ever waits to get her ducks in a row. What does she do? The mother duck starts walking and the ducklings fall in line, right? So all you have to do is start moving forward. Toward your reboot, toward the reset button, whatever it is that you want to do. Just take the step, and the energy starts to shift. And if it’s that you want to reset your life in the way that people think of you, the way that you think of you, all you have to do is start and you can do that at any time. Like in the next 30 seconds? You can start. Because that’s just a mindset, because once you do, and you start treating yourself better, everyone else learns how to do it by watching you, so your husband will treat you better, your boss will treat you better, your kids will treat you better, if you treat you better, or differently, or whatever it is that you want to change. Just start walking forward – think of the mother duck.
