It’s been so quiet around here I feel like stepping inside an old house and hearing my voice echo off the walls as I say “Hello! (oh-oh-oh)”
I attended the Life Bliss Weekend a month ago and I had a milestone – I came home with a different realization than what I thought I set off to have.
Let’s just say that thinking about what I thought my life’s mission was (prior to the weekend) meant staying in my current job for another year or two, and then setting off on an entirely different course.
What happened was that I went home with a renewed sense of what I should be doing in the role I currently have. How my mission can and should remain the same over time, albeit set in different roles in life.
I have tried many times to write about that weekend, but where do I begin? What’s important is that I have taken steps to work on my takeaways from that experience, and it looks like I’m well on my way to finding bliss.
How does that relate to this blog? Everything is connected. My desire to define my mission in life, the need to rekindle a passion for my work, and the non-activity on the blogs, are all connected.
And things that are happening now couldn’t have come at a better time. I’ve had an opportunity at work to attend a training/workshop that gave me further affirmation that I’m where I am supposed to be.
For my blogs, I’ve been working on material that I signed up for two years ago. I’ve been stuck on having a mission and unable to move forward. But working offline on myself, I think, is allowing me to move forward here too. So I’m working on that.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that I am in an ongoing reboot process. Personal Reboot, Work Reboot, and even a Blogging Reboot, because really, how can you separate the three?
When was the last time you did a reboot?

Hi, Vera! I missed you doing the comment rounds. Looking forward to your blogging reboot. I am also planning to reboot my lifestyle once I am done with my pending tasks.

I do a blogging reboot yearly as I feel that it is important to realign your blog direction each time you start off a new year.

Hi Vera! How are you? Belated happy birthday pala. I hope you can join us again soon. We are getting fewer and I missed seeing you around weekly. Anyway, I once tried to make a blogging reboot but I don’t know how to reboot mine. I wanted to rebrand my blog but I don’t know how to. I have been busy with my off line works, family and the shop, and I will admit I took my blog fro granted. I’m waiting with them to see your blog again 🙂

I just had a computer reboot yesterday. Would that count? What I need is a lifestyle reboot I guess. Things weren’t falling into place I guess.

you sounded so positive and refreshed, happy for you! and I hope you had a wonderful birthday as well! 🙂

I am happy for you Vera coz you were able to attend a life-changing workshop/seminar that helped you in a lot of ways.
If my life’s a computer, I can say that I am running a lot of programs simultaneously right now. However, I have learned to hit the “exit button” on some programs that I don’t need yet or to end some processes via the Task Manager when necessary. That makes life simpler and less overwhelming. I am not saying my life or myself is perfect; what I meant is that I feel like I don’t need another reboot yet (can’t remember the last time).
