I have a secret to tell you…

I have a secret to tell you…

Lots of people say to me Jen, you really have it together, I wish I was as organised and as sure of what I wanted to do with my life as you…

Do you know what?

Half the time I have no idea what I am doing… I am just winging it and hoping for the best.

I make decisions all the time with zero idea if it’s the right one.

What I do know though is that I am heading in the right direction in life, what I want is to help people. I want women to understand who they are, realise their potential and have the balls to go after what they want in life and not feel guilty about it.

If I can do it, and for those of you who know / remember my story; I wasn’t interested in school, didn’t really want to be there, hardly spoke out, I daydreamed a lot, picked my college course based on the fact we got taken to Tenerife for a week at the end of the year, took a gap year that pretty much lasted 8 years and am divorced with a whole lot of other bits and pieces in amongst that…

We all have stuff going on that makes us doubt ourselves, the difference is whether you let that stuff rule you and hold you back or you use it to motivate you and ask for help, seeking out mentors and coaches that will take you to the next level.

The other half of the time I look up to my coaches and mentors for help and guidance. Outside of that I go with my gut and hope for the best, hoping that the universe is actually taking control and it will guide me to where I need to be (that would be God or whatever belief system you have).

An important lesson that I have learned in the last 5 years is that I can’t control everything that is going on in my world, the only thing that I can control is how I react to what is going on. Sometimes I get the reaction completely wrong, but other times I get it completely right…

Letting go of control was not easy for me to do, and there are still days, hours, minutes that I struggle, but when I do everything turns out okay… more often, even better than I could have made it…

So my advice to you today… learn to let go and just wing it some of the time.

Happy free Friday

Jen x
