76: Bursting Bubbles

I’ve been ‘away in business’ for the last week

I didn’t travel too far, just up to Scotland to help the team

It’s been great to be away from my day to day workload, I’ve had little to do up as I’ve played the support role rather than the ‘manager – leadership’ role

I realised a few things that I’ve struggled to admit to myself or perhaps I’m still a little unclear about where I stand

Either I’m burnt out or tired of doing the same thing over and over again

Yet, that feeling doesn’t seem quite right as when I really think about my job, my team and the company I work for, hand on heart I can honestly say I enjoy all of it. I’m comfortable there

And there it is

There lies my issue. The nagging feeling working my last nerves….the discomfort I feel with being too comfortable

Life shouldn’t be lived with inertia. It shouldn’t be lived so comfortably that growth slows down and then stops altogether

Being comfortable is a double edged sword of its own. It feels great but eroded your inner strength, your inner fight and resolve to resist and reject mediocrity

Being comfortable takes it all away and what you’re left with is….let’s face it, boredom

There’s worse things to be than bored but that doesn’t make boredom acceptable

Time to start breaking this lovely comfortable bubble that I’ve built and get back in the game

It’s time to get back in shape – in every sense of that word, mental, physical, emotional and yes…..spiritual too

Bubbles are made for bursting

Time to burst mine

Be well
