I QUIT!

July 31st, 2013 by Elizabeth Joy Mueller | Comments Off

I want to quit.

I know I came back from vacation and this is how a lot of people feel about their life upon returning.  But this feeling, this time, was different, I really want to quit.

I announced to my entrepreneurs group and they listened attentively and then gave me permission to quit. So here, now, I give you permission to quit, too.

What do you want to quit in your life?I Quit

I quit feeling confused and tired.
I quit feeling struggle.
I quit feeling overwhelm.
I quit telling myself all the things I am doing wrong.
I quit holding myself back.
I quit not trusting myself and my timing.

I QUIT! I’m giving myself permission to quit. To dive straight into this and find out what’s here for me to learn.  It’s so much easier to cover it up, distract it or create another story about how I have to carry on in spite of the powerful non-negotiable feeling of wanting to QUIT!

I am dancing with quitting and discovering what’s in this abyss for me at this time.  Stay tuned! Or, better yet, join me in quitting what you are ready to quit.

Ironically, while I feel like quitting, I am also having the joyful experience of running my Summer of JOYfest program that I launched in early July and meeting with my one-to-one clients. It’s truly joyful and inspiring and fun and I am loving it.

How do I reconcile the need to quit with having a marvelous time teaching in the JOYfest & meeting with my clients?  Here again, I am letting it all be as it is.

im-a-quitterJOY + Quitting, together in one bundle that I get to create and open to what’s that meant to look like for me – uniquely. Perhaps I keep leaving out the unique part of my own creation, expecting it to look like everyone else’s set-up and in the process judging what it is, judging it against others, judging myself for what I feel I am not. Ouch!

Does all that self-judgment sound familiar to you? It’s truly painful because no matter what you want to do or be, you’ve got to give yourself permission to do it your way.

My invitation for you this week:  Follow your JOY, QUIT what needs to be left behind, follow what’s working and give yourself FULL permission to do it your way! Uniquely your way on your terms!

I’m giving it try, as well! Tell me what unfolds for you by replying to this email, posting on Facebook  or sharing it with others.

P.S. Wait, please pass this on for anyone with Autistic or ADHD kids. . . My friend, Andrea Anderson, is a quitter, too!  She quit doing all the wrong things for her kids and helped them heal and clear of ADHD & autism. Before she helped clear them of their autism:
•           Severe mood swings- with aggressive behavior
•           Hyper
•           High levels of anxiety
•           Uncomfortable with peers
Now:
•           Their moods are balanced- they talk about what upsets them and how they feel
•           They’re calm, can sit and focus on their school work, read books and magazines
•           Situations that once created anxiety (like getting dressed in the morning) they now handle with ease, they’re actually relaxed
•           They have friends!  Lots of friends- even BEST friends they are very close with!
