It’s that time of year when not only are we busier at work than ever, but our personal lives are about to get busier as well! So many really wonderful women I know are juggling multiple commitments, and let’s face it, part of being successful and happy is being well-rounded. It’s only natural that we want to make the most of all the opportunities around us!
But one often overlooked aspect of “making the most” of our opportunities is cultivating a sense of joy, presence and awareness about ourselves. This awareness is important because it keeps us from being caught up in a whirlwind of activity just for the sake of being busy or collecting accolades.
I’ve mentioned on Sparks! before that I often work with women who focus on or play up one particular part of their identity, while completely disregarding other parts of themselves. Even worse, some do this without even realizing there are other aspects of themselves! Aspects they might really enjoy if they got in touch with them.
As we round the corner toward the holidays and the beginning of the social season, I want to encourage you to take a little time – before things get truly hectic – and get clarity about who you are, and who and what you want in your life. This is the perfect time to examine this, because of course you’ll be around friends and loved ones quite a bit the next two months!
1. Get Smart About Who’s In Your Life (and Why).
Is there a man you’re considering letting get closer? Are you ready to light up some sparks and flirt with someone new? Any relationship or dating that’s on the horizon will result in a much deeper, more effective connection if you’ve cultivated that joy and awareness I mentioned above. I wrote about this in detail last spring, and this is a perfect time to revisit that post and work through the three questions I’ve outlined there: Getting Smart About Who’s In Your Life
Unless you are centered about your core values, you’ll have trouble getting what you want and need from a man, no matter how fantastic he is. It really is in your hands, and self-knowledge is the first step.
2. Gain a Fresh Perspective: Flirting is Natural, Dating is Fun, and You Can Connect More Deeply with the Men You Meet.
When I wrote my post about assessing who is in your life, I was just about to launch my Smart Sexy Soulful Dating™ Course for the year. Well, I have some great news…
Not only is this a perfect time to ask yourself the questions in my Getting Smart About Who’s In Your Life post, but I’ve just made my entire Smart Sexy Soulful Dating™ Audio Series available for personal download. This is the audio series the course is based on, and trust me, it’s very powerful information.
If you’re really serious about making the most of all your opportunities this season, by all means, check it out, listen to the preview, and download it for yourself. I’m convinced you will love dating once you’ve listened to the series.
I hear from women all the time what a life-changer it has been for them! And this is an ideal time to take advantage of this dating resource, because the social season will give you plenty of chances to utilize what you are learning so that you really are happy, open, and “relationship ready” when the right man comes into your life!
Finally, I want you to know one thing: you already are an amazing woman.
We are all in different phases of our journey, and that is fine and perfectly healthy. The fact that you are here and reading my blog each week illustrates that you want more in life and in love. That means so much to me. You deserve all the joy and happiness you’re seeking, regardless of your relationship status at the moment. You deserve it simply because you are you!
