As we tap into the final months of 2019, you must remember one key thing.
You co-create your own reality.
Allison loved helping her child. It made her warm and fuzzy on the inside. Yet, her daughter, Tulip, always waited until the last minute to write her papers for school. And, Allison, was always right there to review and read it at 1am or sometimes later at night.
Life started to change. Allison started taking on new responsibilities at work. Her excitement to utilize her talents and apply them in new ways brought immense joy to her. After years of being underutilized, she was finally seeing her career and skills take off. Alison exuberant with glee couldn’t wait to get to work every morning. She imagined buying her first home once she received a promotion.
Then, as a classic teenager, Tulip, said “hey Mom, tonight I’m working on my final paper for the semester. Will you help me with it?” This time, Allison, said, “No, I’m not staying up late to review this. You’ve had two weeks to complete this and I’m no longer your scapegoat.” Tulip stood there in shock, almost horrified. Allison, said, it’s time you take responsibility to get your work done in a timely manner. I’m happy to help. Staying up late affects my own performance at work the next day and tomorrow is the culmination of a nine month project at work with a big client.
From that day forward, Tulip realized a valuable lesson. It was up to her to get her own projects done on time. Alison created her own reality to teach responsibility to her child while maintaining her own responsibility to herself.
The choices you make dictate your reality. Set boundaries and create the reality you want for yourself and others.
Wishing you an abundant, joyful and prosperous day!
