Update from OYou BootCamp Week 3
So, this year I’m having a little more challenge in this OYou Boot Camp that is supposed to be my stretch towards living my best life. My TDO partner has ventured out into the world and left the four walls of our temperature controlled office in search of greatness. So while she’s still here…she’s not always here. Make sense? So change is happening and as I try to keep up with it all, I find that I may be in week three of this personal boot camp, but I’m stuck in week one… still trying to figure out what I’m going to be when I grow up. The topic of finding your passion keeps swirling around in my life as I stack my daily list too high to achieve and push myself to keep going and keep my eyes open. What does my passion look like? And would I even notice it in front of these exhausted and emotional eyes?
Sometimes I think I’m the only one lost in all of this. With no more Oprah Winfrey Show, I don’t have the validation that I am not alone and sometimes, I feel like I am. Trying to practice the inspiration that inspires me…knowing that it’s not easy but it’s worth it. When this happens, I go back to my OWN and Oprah Lifeclass lessons. Everyone is a work in progress. Even princess’ (Finding Sarah…a show way before it’s time on OWN) feel lost and search to find themselves. People try new things all the time…sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t. Even Iylana Vanzant gets lost in not feeling worthy, valued and appreciated. As I work through the emotions and I try to unstick myself from this quicksand; I realize it’s just that – quicksand. Emotional life quicksand that if I stop and let myself stand here and get lost in the stress of contemplating what path to travel, I won’t be able to get out of it.
So, there is no other choice but to keep moving…and keep trusting that no road is easy and that no one can do for you what you need to do. So, instead of focusing on the quicksand at my feet, I’m going to move toward the focus for this week and perhaps as I look to unclutter and organize the world around me, a little more of everything else will fall away and leave me with what’s really important in my life.
