Unless we’re Mary Poppins and “practically perfect in every way”, we all have areas which we’ve developed more than others.

With the pause we’re all experiencing, this is an excellent time to look at each area and ask the following questions:

  1. What are the things I feel I have mastered? – These become our accomplishments we praise ourselves for and remind ourselves of when we’re feeling down.
  2. What are the things I do occasionally but would like to develop more?
  3. What are things I rarely or never do, but would like to make more space in my life for?

Once you have written down the answers to #2 and #3, look at them with the new vision this time has given you, and make a new list with the highest priority items at the top, and so on down the list.

Instead of feeling overwhelmed at this point, starting at the top, take an inner look at why it hasn’t been developed (no name calling to yourself!) and see what the barrier was. Lack of skills? You can take a class! You’re re-prioritizing now? Wonderful! That’s growth!

This may sound strange, but create a new schedule, where you add in one or more of the items on your new list of priorities, making sure not to neglect the other things in life which still matter! Making time in our schedule is the best way to get started!

Let this time become a time of growth and renewal in your life!

Peace,
Tamara
