    // Should I Stay or Go: Heart-Based Career Decisions

    // Should I Stay or Go: Heart-Based Career Decisions

    Today, we're discussing one of the toughest questions many heart-based professionals face at some point: Should I stay or go?
    Imagine this: you're at a career crossroads. That inner whisper tells you something needs to change, but you’re worried and not sure what to do next.  
    Join me as we consider three inquiries to support your decision; remember, there's no one-size-fits-all answer. But by exploring these inquiries, you can uncover the next best step forward.
    So, my friends, let's channel the wisdom of The Clash’s famous song: "Should I stay or should I go?" But it's not about the song; it's about finding our rhythm in the symphony of our heart-based careers.

    // Join Me for a Mid-Year Check-In: Gratitude for Growth

    We're halfway through the year, and it's the perfect time for a mid-year check-in. Instead of skimming through your accomplishments, let's dive into a ritual I call Gratitude for Growth:
    Flourish: Reflect on what you've achieved and how far you've come; celebrate your wins, big and small. 
    Cultivate Connections: Consider the mentors, colleagues, and friends who have supported you. Take a moment to send them a note of appreciation.
    Grow: Consider how you've expanded your skills and knowledge. Embrace these opportunities as stepping stones to future success.
    Nourish: Reflect on how you've cared for your mind, body, and spirit. Think about how you've found balance and how to keep that momentum going.
    These reflections aren't just about the past—they're seeds for future growth. Let them inspire you to pursue your heart-based path with purpose. As we move into the second half of the year, let's carry this spirit of gratitude and reflection with us.🌸

    // Building Momentum and Fueling Your Progress

    // Building Momentum and Fueling Your Progress

    Do you often dread the start of another week, knowing that your job is draining your energy? If so, you're not alone. The good news is that we can change this.   
    Let's shift our mindset—focus on possibilities, not limitations. Set energizing, HEART-based goals that resonate with your values. Instead of running away from what drains us, let's run toward what excites us.
    Don't underestimate the power of shaking up your routine. While stability is comforting, it doesn't always lead to growth. Introducing new habits and rituals can create space for exploration and innovation, leading to a more fulfilling path.
    Lastly, let's talk about momentum. In physics, an object in motion gains momentum. Investing just five minutes a day in ourselves can ignite that momentum in our careers. 🌟
