There are 90 days until the end of 2018. What do you want to achieve? A lot can change in 90 days! You need a vision, you must take action each and every day - even small steps, stay open to possibility, remain positive, be resourceful, ask for help, and have faith.
I know this from experience.
Earlier this year I closed my yoga business after 14 years due to unexpected and unfortunate circumstances. It was devastating to me emotionally and financially. Everything that I had worked for, for over a decade was gone. Not only was it my place of employment, but it was an amazing community, my community. I was a single mother, unemployed, not eligible for unemployment, and I lost my home due to the amount of debt that I incurred from the business closing (which I am still trying to pay off). I had to borrow money from family and friends to buy groceries. I had to apply for financial assistance for childcare just so I could go on job interviews. My children and I had to go on Medicaid (thank god this service is available for people who are in the position I was in at the time). It was the most terrifying few months of my life. And on top of it all, I was receiving angry emails from people who loved my yoga studio and were pissed that I made the decision to close, which at the time was really the best option I had.
I was at the lowest point in my life. No one really knew how dire my situation was and I felt like such a failure on so many levels.
BUT I had a vision of coming out the other end, to be able to support my children, of finding the perfect job for me, and to find a community to live in that is nurturing for me and my kids. I let everyone know that I was looking for work. I asked for help. I took every consulting position possible. I took action every day and put the pieces back together. I drew on all of the lessons I learned from yoga and mindfulness to stay sane, to sleep, and to pull me out of the overwhelming cycle of “what if’s…?”
Within 90 days I got hired for a job that I love, picked up 2 great consulting gigs (yes I went from 0 jobs to 3!!), and moved my family to the Berkshires. Within 90 Days it all changed. Yes, there are still things I am still paying off and wrapping up from the mess of closing a business so abruptly. Yes, I am still unraveling from the stress of it all. Yes, I wonder if my credit will ever get out of the toilet. But I have come through the other side. I have the opportunity to contribute to an organization that I love in a job that is perfect for me. I am living in an amazing place that my kids and I enjoy. I learned a lot. I learned how resilient I am. I realized that all of it was to help move me toward something greater. And I am so grateful for all the help and support I received along the way.
