Preparing for change, and dealing with change are two different animals.
In my personal life I had been preparing for some major changes that I was very excited about. I had been waiting twenty years for these changes. Additionally I had been preparing for fifteen years for these changes. On Friday September 19th, I learned that none of these changes were going to be possible. Instead life must stay copacetic if you will. This means my hopes and dreams are not to come to pass presently.
Now, being a coach, there is a process for dealing with this. I help my clients with this all the time. Most times I can skip through the process, or go through it so quickly I don't even realize I did it.
However, this recent disappointment has truly required "The Process".
Now those of us from AOL Journals (J-Land) are dealing with this. It is hitting some harder then others. So... step one in the process...
IT IS OK TO BE MAD!!! Sometimes you have to give yourself permission to vent, and rant and stomp and kick, and throw things and cry!!!!
If you don't feel right about giving yourself permission....then let me give it to you.
Go Ahead!!! Be Mad For A While... and here is some music to do it by....
