I am guilty of being too connected at times. This week I found myself needing to disengage on some levels. It gave me the chance to re-assess (“re” because I am regularly assessing what is working, what isn’t working then adjusting and shifting to bridge the gap between where I am and where I want to be). I can get caught up in the busy-ness of life. It can feel a bit like jumping on a hamster wheel and suddenly realizing it’s spinning a lot faster than when you started.
So sometimes, I need to jump off. When I do, I look at my priorities, goals and commitments. I check in to see if my actions are aligning and supporting my core values and what it is that I’m up to. I notice where there is room for improvement and create a plan to change.
To stay clear about the life I am leading, I sometimes I need to go into radio silence. What might you discover if you disengaged for a few hours? What does your personal inventory reveal to you? What is it like to be silent in your own presence? How might you live in a more grounded, centered way if you allowed yourself to shut down and get clear once a week for a few hours? As I often do with my clients, I encourage you to experiment. If it doesn’t work, fine. It may lead you to an approach that works better for you to engage with yourself. Radio silence is a chance to get re-energized, re-connected and re-focused. You’re invited!
