I find myself resisting strength…

…because I feel that I already work so hard and I’m afraid that being stronger will just prepare me for harder work. I think that what I want is relief. So I resist accessing power and growing stronger.

This is ridiculous. Is it harder to lift something heavy if you are strong or weak? I am already working hard. Becoming stronger may prepare me for more responsibility, but it will PREPARE me for it. Things won’t actually get harder. They will get easier.

I need to welcome all kinds of exercise.

1. Is there anything you're doing in your life that you love to do?

Can't be all work and no play. In fact, once you find the right "work" it is play. Because you are doing what you love, your load will be light.

All my best to you rbnyc.

2. I love sleep.

I love hanging out with my kid. I love talking to my husband. I love singing. I helped a friend build a strategic plan today for her business and that was great. I love many aspects of my job too. I love what I do and many of the people I work with. I give too much energy to petty people in the office. I do spend most of my time responding to other people's needs.

OH, I love baking theme cakes!

3. I know how you feel.

I have spent way too much time responding to other's needs.
