5 Minutes of Fabulous: For all the werking girls (and that includes stay-at- home parents too!)
Happy Friday Honey!
Hope you’ve had a fantastic week!
One thing I know about myself is that my career is a huge part of my happiness. Do you feel the same?
For those of us on the journey of living more fabulously, colorful, and radiant lives, evaluating what makes us come alive in our work is imperative.
What I know to be true is that everyone feels some dissatisfaction in their job and that’s ok. But when was the last time we asked ourselves what we can do to make our careers feel more fabulous?
I speak with so many women that feel deep hatred towards their jobs, their bosses, and their office culture. What I notice is the lack of willingness to make some change on their part.
Change doesn’t need to mean quitting your job, retiring, or getting a new job.
Change can simply be the willingness to make micro-changes to your day to day so that you can feel more positivity and contentment.
What can you do to make your job feel more fabulous today?
Take a minute to journal about this. Some examples that I use in my everyday life is drinking chlorophyll water while I work, taking time to take a lunch break, and putting essential oil on my temples when I get into my office.
Setting boundaries in your job is another way to feel more work/life balance which ultimately helps us create a more fabulous life.
You may know that when I’m not coaching women, I work as a corporate marketing executive at a music video company. I enjoy my job and feel peace in what I do because of the boundaries I set. Some examples of this is that I do not look at my email until 8:45am. I’ve created a boundary around the amount of work related events I attend on a weekly basis, and I always take a lunch break.
If you were to set just one boundary in your work that would help you feel more balanced, what would that be?
What type of conversations would need to take place for you to execute on these boundaries? Would you need to have a conversation with your manager or your co-workers? If you work from home or are a stay at home parent, would you need to have a conversation with your partner about childcare so that you can create more balance for yourself?
Ultimately, whether we love or loathe our jobs, it’s incredibly important for us to get honest with ourselves and ask the important questions. Because our current job can teach us so much about who we are, what we like, what we dislike, and most importantly, how we have the power to make our lives more fabulous and fulfilling.
Please share with me! Do you enjoy your current job? Do you work in an office? Are you an entrepreneur or a stay-at-home parent? What are your biggest struggles? What is your favorite part of your job?
