today. So now I have a 5 year plan that when you read it seems very outlandish…and yet if we don’t have big goals we’ll never reach them.
Better than the 5 year plan is my 6 month plan which is very attainable and moves me in the direction of my ideal life.
is making it difficult to move forward with my next life plan because the Universe has no idea what I really want…trouble is neither do I.
Yesterday I read Wayne Dyer’s book Manifesting your Destiny again straight through taking notes this time. I know this works. I just do not have a congruent clear picture of what I want the next phase to be…my creative side is truly battling with my logical side and neither is winning. Therefore am paralyzed in indecision.
My passions no longer run to the real estate career I once lived for no matter how I try to spin it.
My fears paralyze me in the avenue of teaching children to care for God’s creations and the art cafe/cooking studio. Which honestly makes me ecstatically happy just to think about! I adore working with children.
Looks like the answer is right in front of me.
24 hours of total silence is in order today. No TV, no radio, no music…no noise except that of my inner voice talking to me about my next life plan.
As a visual person I firmly believe we manifest whatever we envision for our lives. Since moving to the wilderness there has been far too much input from others on what I need to do and how I need to do it.
Today I am going to read, write, meditate and pray…listen to my own counsel and that of my Higher Being. It has been a very long time since we spent any time together…just God and I.
things start to move in that direction immediately. The Universe is abundant and we have a million choices we can make each day in our lives.
To whittle them down is the key…
Time for a new plan for this phase of my life. :)
I wrote an entry that a friend cheered today and reminded me that my life plan was pretty much set again then if I would only listen.
I am realizing my goals here are my new life plan. If I was doing them I wouldn’t have time to question what my life plan should be. So I am marking this done and getting busy actually living again. :)
I created a very vivid life plan that got me through the first half of my life easily. I knew who I was and where I was going. I moved to Texas, married well and raised my family, had a career, had a church home, was active in the community…then my husband died, my children grew up, I got sick and everything changed.
I haven’t adapted to those changes well because I still picture my life as it was instead of growing into a new phase… this goal will help me plan out the next chapters of my life. :)

... the same as my other goal – so I might as well cut out the excess goal…
... about the career options.
The BIG one isn’t happening (yet), and the need for change – if only for the sake of change, is growing.
It is hard for me not to compare myself with others. Then I remember that God has given each of us a special gift.
We are not going to be good at everything. I don’t have to feel inferior to others who do things better than I can. I do have special talents that I can share with others.
My strengths are in encouraging people by giving them hope and optimism for their lives. My real gift is in teaching.
That is my main gift. I need to learn to focus on my natural talents and recognize my limitations.
