I left teaching seven weeks ago. I haven’t looked back. I was past my ‘best before’ date and I knew it. I still have a hundred percent in the classroom, but I wasn’t as motivated outside of it. Probably because I was running a business outside of school hours and all day Saturday; there was no time.
I am now working seven days a week. I’m knackered lol. I’m blissfully happy too. I’m growing my business and creating new pathways for myself; I am living my dream. Did I mention, I’m exhausted. Lol.
The last couple of weeks has been bizarre.
I was first contacted by an ex-colleague who has offered me the opportunity to run a stress relief, mindfulness and meditation session for Year 7 students at her school. Yes, please, thank you. Humbled and initially terrified, I accepted. Of course I can do this 😳.
After saying YES, the universe realised I was willing to accept opportunities and was serious about not going back to teaching in a school.
I was then contacted by an ex-student from another lifetime altogether and asked if I was interested in running meditation/healing in his centre.
From that meeting, a whole other new opportunity emerged to work with the Department of Housing, developing and implementing programs to support the empowerment of women. Oh my. It’s still sinking in. That was the end goal of my business; it’s come ten years early.
And, then, realising that what they want is just who I am. No bells or whistles, just what I do every day being me.
What a gift. I am beyond grateful. It is amazing what transpires and manifests when you just let go …
Let go of everything that no longer serves you, of everything that does not bring you happiness and joy, of everything that no longer fits … and you create openings and space for everything that you do want, to come in.
It’s a process, but man, such a worthwhile one.
