In preparing for the call to help couples learn how to stop bickering, all Bill and I did was bicker.
Bill and I decided that we were trying to cram too much in one week so, after lots of deliberation, we’ve rescheduled our free call to next Thursday, July 21st at 1:30 (Pacific time).
Postponing the call feels like I’ve messed up. I don’t like asking people to make changes to their plans. It’s hard to acknowledge that I can’t do everything. In situations like this, I realize that I’m not as far along in my recovery as a perfectionist as I’d like to be – my expectations of myself still get in the way of my happiness.
When I suggested to Bill that we put off the call for a week, he said that making this choice made him feel so much lighter. And I feel better, too. I can tell by how my body is reacting that this is the best decision. The easing of tension in my neck and shoulders tells me that postponing the call is a yes.
I’m taking my own advice.
I’m working with a coaching client right now who, after years of doing a physical job that she loved was faced with a physical injury that meant she couldn’t do her job anymore. In my last coaching conversation with this client, I pointed out that starting over was like building a wardrobe beginning with an empty closet. She didn’t have to weed out what didn’t quite fit or what she never really liked but had invested a lot of money in. She could fill her closet with the ideas, experiences, and activities that felt like yeses.
It feels like a yes for Bill and I to change the date for our free call to get ready for a new way of working together. We hope you can join us (and if you can’t, we’ll record the call so you can listen to it later). Register for the call or to receive the recording here: http://www.thewellcraftedmom.com/free-call
