Lovely ladies, is there a change in your life you have been trying to make but seem to stumble at the final hurdle? You're not alone, I think we have all been there.
Is there change being forced onto you (e.g. redundancy, divorce or bereavement) and you just can’t get past the loss, pain, displacement, loss of self/ loss of your "role"?
We all know that the only constant in life is change, so why do we dislike it so much? Ask a room full of people how many of them like change. I think most often you’ll encounter silence. Mel tried this in one of her speaking engagements, and as you might expect; crickets. People dislike change. We don't deal with uncertainty well.
Lately I've been thinking, well if we know that change is naturally-occurring, inevitable, constant and repetitive, then why don’t we learn how to understand what change does to us, physically, mentally, sometimes spiritually and “lean into it” so we are better able to handle it when it shows up again? Why are we not taught strategies for resilience in the face of life’s changes? A toolkit would be useful, wouldn't it?
Melissa and I have over 80 years of lived experience between us - that’s equates to a whole lotta changes - some big, some small. Over the Christmas/New Year break I heard from quite a few friends that 2019 was a kinda crappy year for them. So this year (2020) we’ve decided to run a series of workshops based on Mel’s signature program The Ritual of Change™.
The program explains the 9 defined stages of change and allows you to identify which stage you find you get stuck in and unlock the tools to assist you to breakthrough in order to feel content and resolved with the change you are encountering.
In an intimate group of women we explain the ritual everyone must perform in order to successfully complete the change cycle. In doing this we can explore and understand the importance of each stage and where each of us usually gets stuck. This place will be different for each of us.
Is it time for you to get unstuck in order to show up in your own life? Lovely one, if not now, then when? I don't know about you, but I'm tired of being tired, I've had enough of being on the sideline of my own life. I want to participate. I want to reclaim joy (where the hell did it go?) Women are great at empowering other women; how many times have you propped up a friend going through a challenge in their life? I think it's about your turn to be the empowered one, isn't it?
Mel and I plan to make 2020 our year of being our most courageous selves. Will it be yours? We invite you to join us.
Shine bright ladies
