“The past is finished. Learn from it and let it go. The future is not even here yet. Plan for it, but do not waste your time worrying about it. Worrying is worthless. When you stop ruminating about what has already happened, when you stop worrying about what might never happen, then you will be in the present moment. Then you will begin to experience joy in life.”
– Brian Weiss
This is my official "Hello" to the next phase of my life!
With this new journey - I'm also embarking on a new Insights Series I affectionately call - "Mental Hydration". This Insight Series documents inspirations, travels, and a new life path - personal and professional. The aim is to entertain, enlighten and inspire through Pangalo Groups journey and life lens.
So - lets start at the beginning of 2018 - the year of mega change!!
To say that 2018 represented monumental change professionally & personally would be an understatement. So let me list out for you what I've been up to to date. This includes - in no specific order:
I met the love of my life: in Feb - who at the time lived in Denver (I lived in LA)
Manage a long distance relationship - easy to do coz I adore Ryan
Ryan Secured a promotion/ new job with the La Jolla PlayHouse in San Diego, California - He Started in October 2018
Help Ryan pack up his whole life in Denver, say good bye to his work, friends and much loved family ( he's from Denver) - that was really hard and emotional!
Rent out Ryans fabulous loft in Down Town Denver - DONE!
Organize to have Ryan's life - including his car sent to San Diego
Find & Move into a new home with the gorgeous Ryan - All in Oct 2018
Leave my corporate job of 2 years - that one was easy!
Pack up my life in Los Angeles and move to San Diego.
Rent out my place in West Hollywood - DONE!
Say goodbye to my life in Los Angeles after 5 years - that was also super hard!
Re imagine Pangalo Group 2.0 - begin to build my own dream again!
Secure two new clients in Mumbai, India -YAY!
Work with these new clients remotely to deliver some amazing outcomes in person during two India engagements.
PHEW!! OK - NEXT!!!!!
So, once gain, my need to plan / control and execute have been fulfilled. For me however, I have two major personal hurdles to overcome in the new phase and post so much activity – being of and in the moment plus letting go of everything that no longer serves me. Now is the time to stop for a moment and take a deep, calming breath and take a look around - my new life, surroundings, home and work. My brain naturally goes to the "What's next"? It nags at me " Don't rest, plan, strategize, double down on problems and move forward"!! The smallest probems become my obsession - with that little voice saying: GET! IT! DONE! So I'm challenging myself to STOP - TAKE A BREATH - ENJOY THE NOW!
This weeks quote encourages me to understand that we can wish that the past was different – however this is futile and a waste of energy. We can also look to the future with worry, anxiety and fear, however we really can’t predict tomorrow. - plan and execute yes: but don't worry so much. All we have is NOW – all the amazing, beautiful and loving experiences that are right in front of us. So - I'm doing my best this week to be present - in my new town, home, work and relationship: purposeful to absorb all the little moments that make for a fulfilled life.
May we all look to the past with joy and forgiveness, look to the future with hope – and may the NOW be enjoyed, cherished and loved.
Here’s to an amazing, fun, successful and loving week ahead for you all.
