You've heard it before: Get a clear vision of what you want and it will just come into your life. You’ve made the vision board, you’ve said the affirmations, you’ve spent hours picturing, imagining and envisioning your perfect job. So, where is it?
Next week's SFPCN speaker, Lydia Snider, will offer a tip that might be the missing piece in getting what you want. She calls it creating the vacuum.
There is a saying that “nature abhors a vacuum.” Every empty space gets filled. Lydia thinks differently - she believes nature “ adores a vacuum,” because it makes room for the new to come in.
People get excited about planting the seeds for a new job, relationship, and more that they want in life. Then, they forget to stop and consider, " Is there room for this?" Often without even realizing it, we have our lives packed full both physically and mentally with artifacts from our past.
If you are finding your forward momentum stalled despite your steady efforts, the problem may be that there is simply no room for the new.
Join us on Tuesday to learn the different techniques to create space in your life and the technique most effective for you.
Lydia served as a special education teacher for nearly 20 years before being forced out on medical stress leave. When she left she discovered how completely her job title had become intertwined in her sense of identity. She couldn’t teach and she didn’t know who she was without teaching. It was as if she was suddenly put out of the only home she had known, the door closed behind her and before her lay a harsh unknown landscape. Resisting the temptation to give up, she headed into the unknown. She has now designed her life around the elements of teaching she loves and around her other passion, kiteboarding. Lydia will be sharing the most valuable discoveries she made in that journey.
The doors open at 9:00 a.m. and the program begins at 9:30 a.m. sharp and will run 1.5 hours. We must depart the community room by 11 a.m.
