Conciously Co-Creating a New Life

February 18, 2017

Something I have learned throughout the years is that we can always improve. As soon as we reach a certain level, it’s time to start reaching for the next level.  As I mentioned in the last post, I wrote a book several years ago called New Story, New Life – the main theme being we can create a new life by the story we tell ourselves, and one of the things I do as a counselor and a coach is to help people write that new story.

Well, I recently took a course called Consciously Creating a New Life, with Michael Mirdad, and it helped to take my life to a whole new level. I found areas of my life getting better without my conscious striving to make them so. For example, a couple of months ago, I had made a list of things I wanted to replace in my house, and one item was a couple of bookcases that were broken, and basically held together by wishes, I swear! I saw exactly what I wanted at a very reasonable price, so I picked them up. However, they sat in my living room in front of the broken book cases since November! I kept thinking I was too busy to move all of the books off the old shelves and put them on the new shelves. I even took off SOME of the books and had them in boxes, piled up in my living room, until I ran out of boxes. Well, one day, towards the end of the course, I found myself with a few extra hours, unexpectedly, and I spent them getting one of the book cases in place. After that was done, in a day or two, I made the time to finish the job. And now the old bookcases are out and the new ones are in place. It feels SO GOOD.

There are so many other examples, having to do with lowering my A1C, having a much needed tooth extraction, starting a new filing system for my office (although there is still room for improvement there – but I have started!). I even visited my father, who I haven’t seen in 5 years.

I know that these little things add up and I am taking my life to a whole new level. What are YOU doing to take YOUR life to a whole new level??
