Week 5

Dear Diary,

I am trusting in the process, which is easier said than done.

Clarity for my future has brought excitement and an eagerness to spring forward to the next chapter of my journey. To be honest, I am impatient.

  • I am ready to add value to the lives of others.
  • I am ready to contribute to the wellbeing of those who want to level up in their lives.
  • I am ready to connect with anyone who feels stuck or in transition, and help them discover the tools that best suit them for personal success.
  • I am ready to make a safe and comfortable space for people to practice creativity, stretching and exploring, finding inspiration from within, free of judgment and free of comparison.
  • I am ready to empower you.
  • I am ready for what is coming.

How do I know that I am still in the process?

How do I know that I haven’t arrived? 

I have learned to pay attention.

I have learned to have an awareness of people who have been and continue to be placed in my life, circumstances and situations that present themselves to me, and the timing of all of these things.

I have learned to listen to my heart and my intuition.

I have learned to stop controlling everything because it stifles what is meant to come to me.

I have learned that everything that I have experienced thus far has been a necessary part of my journey.

I have learned that there are still things happening to get me to where I am going.

I have learned to trust that everything will fall into place.

Trusting in the process is a challenge, but I have some tools for you to be successful. Take a look below!

5 Tips to Help You Trust in The Process and Keep Peace of Mind

Find Your Cheerleaders.

Grab a piece of paper. Now write down all of your cheerleaders. Your cheerleaders are the people with whom you surround yourself through good times and in bad. They are the ones who listen to you, support you, and lift you up when you need it most. Reach out to these cheerleaders. Tell them that you are going through something and need their support.

Recognize Your Believers.

Your believers are part of your group of cheerleaders, but not all cheerleaders are your believers. When you begin sharing your big ideas and dreams to your cheerleaders, you’ll be able to weed out the nonbelievers. Nonbelievers will listen to you and appear to support you, but they allow their pre-existing or conditioned beliefs to push back. The push back can make you feel small in the presence of someone you thought was your cheerleader-believer.

If you begin sharing with close family and friends about your big dreams, and your gut instinct is that you are sharing with a nonbeliever, remember that finding your believers is part of your process. You choose who you want to accompany you on this journey.

Allow Your Thoughts and Feelings to Simply Be Present.

You probably experience a crazy number of thoughts and emotions when faced with a challenge that could be life changing. Maybe you are working towards a healthier life-style or seeking a career transition to something more fulfilling. No matter what you are looking for, these changes and the process that goes along with them can create havoc in your mind and leave you feeling raw with emotions.

If you find yourself relating, take time in your day to lean into those thoughts and feelings. Find a quiet place in your home, take a walk, go for a bike ride, whatever appeals to you. Give your mind and your heart space to think and feel. Consider taking one more step and write it all down. Declutter your mind. Pour out your feelings. It feels good, I promise.

Practice Gratitude.

Appreciating the small steps that you see happening in your process leads to a sense of accomplishment. Do not let them go unnoticed. If a friend asks you how you are doing the moment you need to talk, talk. When an opportunity presents itself to you that has been on your mind, take advantage. Make time to thank God or the Universe – whatever works for you – and give yourself time to immerse yourself in the feelings of gratitude.

Focus on Mini-Power Steps.

When you are seeking any kind of big change, it can be a lot to take on. You can feel extremely overwhelmed. You may want to try to tackle a lofty goal in a short amount of time. You may be so excited that hit the ground running without any issues. Wherever you are in the process, consider taking mini-power steps toward your goal. Try to do something daily that adds value to your process, ultimately helping you make the progress towards your goal without the overwhelm.

Your journey is just as important as achieving your goal. The process gives you tools, experiences, and strategies you will need as you make progress towards your dreams. When you are feeling impatient, revisit the tips listed above, slow down, and take a deep breath. You are still in the process, still in the journey, and every step will help you get to where you are going.
