How to Keep Buggering On

How to Keep Buggering On

As many of you may know these words come from the famous Winston Churchill.  When I was speaking to a friend of mine last night and he says “I am totally amazed and impressed on how you never seem to give up Nicole.  You always push through things and events and never stop trying.”

Well it’s not that I don’t ever have the thoughts of wanting to throw in the towel.  Give it all up, just move on and say, here you go, take it and I’ll start all over and call it quits.  Trust me; the thought has crossed my mind more than once. My friend Shona said “Nicole, you are on the right path, the breakthrough is coming on strong.”

To give up is not in my nature.  When I had my down moments and I said, I just give up, Randy looked at me straight in the eye and said, “Give up then. Get on with it and stop complaining about it.” Well you can image on how well that went over. But it triggered something that needed to be triggered.

I have been a single, striving mom, always searching for my passion and knowing that there is something more to my purpose.  It’s become clear now.  As my friend Dov Barron once stated to me “This is the best thing that could have happened to me right now.”

You see, I am fighting the bank for my home, which is a WHOLE other story in itself.  Wait for it,  it is coming soon.

Moving on.  My life shifts on a regular basis, as all of our lives do.  It’s just about acceptance and recognition. Do you like and embrace change and growth?  Do you accept your life “AS IS” and hey, this is what you were dealt so you just go with it.  No need for change, it’s just who you are.  Life is ok.
You bet life sucks sometimes.  Stress, bills, work, relationships are not always the easiest to get through.  Life happens and you are stuck with it right? WRONG!  You have the choice to get up and go to work every day.  You choose to keep your life in the relationships that you are in every day.  You know why?  Because it’s EASY! It’s in your comfort zone.  Why change right?  Why rock the boat even if it means change and amazing events on the “other side.”

That is why I never give up.  I see change. I see progress. I see a woman who makes a difference in this world.  I have a story to tell, a story to share with other people to show them that giving up is not an option.  It’s all about keep buggering ON!  Can you see yourself do the same? With the right support you can accomplish anything. You know the old saying, when life hands you a bunch of lemons, you make lemonade right?
Well how about kicking it up a notch and squeezing the most you have out of life?  Squeeze the crap out of those lemons.  Get every drop out and thrive instead of just survive.

Here 5 action steps for change when you feel gloomy or feel like throwing in the towel:

1.    Recognize what the issues and concerns are.  Embrace them and realize that this too shall pass.  Only when you come to accept it and see it for what it is, can you work through it.
2.    Be grateful for everything that you have every day.  Sit back and write or speak out the things that you have in your life.  Your health, your children, you relationship, your home and being ALIVE!!!
3.    Understand that you have choices!  You can choose to sit and wallow in your victimhood or you can choose to stand in your power and take responsibility.  You ALWAYS have a choice. Making the choices from a position of strength and love is imperative to your well being.
4.    Allow compassion for yourself.  Sometimes life’s stuff gets in the way.  You cannot control others actions but what you can control is your reaction to it.  Being compassionate with yourself allows you to grow and accept the changes that are coming forth with love and honesty.
5.    BREATHE!  You have no idea how many times this has been told to me.  This too shall pass.  Embrace and love the people around you that are supportive. Do not be afraid to ask for support and guidance when you need it.  No point being the martyr when you have a loving environment.  They are there to guide you and hold you!

With those empowering thoughts and action steps, I invite you to move your life forward in whatever situation may arise.  Don’t let the bullies keep bullying you.  Reflect upon them the love and support that you are receiving.  And realize that they do are facing their own conflicts.  Sometimes the messenger IS just the messenger.

Wishing you love and health;

Nicole
