How I Deal With Deep Thoughts

For anyone who has done any type of deep personal work, you can understand the level of exhaustion that comes with it.

Sure, realizing where my patterns come from and why I make decisions and choices is great… what is even better is learning the way to change it. I did something entirely new for me and spent the whole weekend in a course that helped me find the big things to focus on.

Without too many dirty details here is the big one that really resonated: I take responsibility for achieving my dreams.

May not sound like an earth shattering concept, but man it hit me hard. You know that big red candy-like button we all have? The “ding-ding-ding… You are CORRECT!” moment. Very cool to experience, and worth the work, although I’m still recovering!

So what does this mean for my dream?

Guess who’s in the drivers seat — Me.

And Oprah agrees…

The good news: I have an AMAZING support system this time AND I found time to be creative twice so far this year.

For everyone else on this path.  I’ll see you at the next milestone!


  • It’s funny how things you already know can sink in again when the time is right to “get it”!

    All the best with your dreams, heather!

    You know… Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy says:
    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes.
    That way, you’ll be a mile from them, and you’ll have their shoes.
