I am so excited that it’s almost the weekend! I wanted to tell you a quick story about how I actually felt like quitting my job this week. As you may or may not know, I’m a first-grade teacher full-time along with having my coaching business. I absolutely love teaching so much and it’s one of the reasons that allowed me to realize that coaching/ teaching women about mindset was also a huge passion of mine.
As a result of the pandemic, my district is doing a hybrid model which allows the students to come in half a day and my classroom is broken up into two groups of students-an am session and a pm session along with virtual kids who are logged on each day basically in the classroom but virtually.
Things were getting very difficult between all the tech issues, frustrated parents, me helping my children with their schedules and having my husband pitch in and help with pick-up and drop off was getting very overwhelming. Throw in a major seperation anxiety experience from my almost 4 year old in the mix too and that just felt like the topping on the cake. You see I’m a person who thrives off of structure and when things aren’t predictable and organized and lately things have been nothing close to that, I don’t perform the best of my ability.
I had crying episodes and even texted my husband during my lunch period to tell him that this whole thing may not be working out and maybe I should consider a leave of absence temporarily. I know though from being a mindset coach that you should never make a decision from a low vibrational state.
So I did what I do best and I thought about the situation all weekend. I spent most of Saturday completely consumed by my thoughts and mind couldn’t stop racing. The next day I had an instagram live collaboration that I had previously committed to and wasn’t going to cancel. I needed to get my mind right so I can show up the best of my ability to help other women with the very thing I’m passionate about-mindset.
Before my ig live, I did a stress releasing meditation and a journaling session to help release all the negative thoughts that were swimming around in my mind. I remembered the art of surrendering, faith, and trust and knowing that this period that I am going through is temporary. I felt so much better after I finished my IG live. Just stepping into my leadership role of being the mindset coach that my clients and community rely on helped me immediately see that all my struggles from the week will eventually be resolved. It’s almost Friday now and I can tell you with FULL confidence that the mindset techniques I used on myself, worked so much.
I tell you this story in the hopes that if you are struggling with something similar that everything will end up working out. I want you to know that you are allowed to feel pain, sadness, and overwhelmed at times. I want you to know that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel and it’s OKAY to ask for help.
Feel free to reach out to me for help you may need. My life’s passion is to help other women get their mindset right so they can overcome any struggles they may encounter as they work towards their ideal life.
