Flexibility Made Me "Itchy" But Led To Breakthroughs!

Is your Mindset Flexibility (or lack of)
an asset or limitation?

Recently I was confronted (repeatedly) with many things that fell outside my comfort zone due to traveling!

 

Different schedule, time zone, bed, sleep cycle, stimuli, environments, and a major disruption of my early AM meditation/journaling/PT routine. You get it!

 

However, this shift raised my awareness on several levels.

One: My AM meditation is absolutely the anchor to my day--an essential if I wish to be a remotely patient and kind human being!

 

Two: I was better at being flexible than I expected in some circumstances. (Worse in others!)

 

Three: Being SO flexible all at once is REALLY hard for me. (Anyone else?)

 

And then…

When I returned home, I needed to adjust my weekly schedule to accommodate a recurring meeting with six other people. (The meeting brings great value to my life, so I wanted to find space!) 

Yet, I still felt resistance to the change.

It is amazing how attached we all get to our patterns, comfort zones and routines.
My AM meditation is a great one to hang on to but what about all the others?
 

When reviewing my schedule to see how I could accommodate the group needs, I noticed my internal grumbling and resistance around a part of the day that I had deemed “off limits.”

It was time for a “what if?” journaling session— to see if I could reveal and shake loose some of my stuck thinking.

  • What if I started dinner prep earlier & cooked two dinners at once?
  • What if my flex day was a different day?
  • What if I asked for more help in the AM?
  • What if I moved another appointment to the PM?
  • What if I created a truly sacred time for 100 % biz focus?


The exercise helped me explore:

  • How I use my time
  • New systems for repetitive tasks
  • How I can better streamline my different roles (Spiritual Warrioress, wife, mama, Soul Moxie leader, and household/schedule manager)

I learned:

  • I’d gotten a little inefficient!
  • Even though it feels unfamiliar, I can mix things up more.
  • Moving a monthly AM appointment to PM created a positive energetic shift!
  • Best-- I reacquainted with my energy cycles and what types of tasks are best matched for different times of day and week.

 

Take Away…

Even though these flexibility challenges made me very itchy initially, I’m SO grateful for them.

 

They forced me to reframe and clarify my priorities, explore my “tight” areas, as well as see new possibilities.

Now I’m kind of excited and hopeful for what has arisen!

 

How flexible is your mindset?

  • What can you learn from resistance and challenges?
  • How might you lean into the discomfort and explore new possibilities? (~that you might like even better!)
  • For "non-negotiables," are they essential or simply habits / comfortable?

 

We never know what possibilities might arise when we explore our flexibility (and accompanying resistance)!

 

Want to explore new possibilities and get a boost of energy?
Schedule a Breakthrough session!
 

Warmly,

Robin

Let's be imperfect together

December 14, 2021
This month
Let's be imperfect together
Maybe we can be a little messy for a while.

Whether it's disregarding the explosion of Legos and puzzles on the floor when a mom you've never met comes to pick up her sone from a playdate, or you allow some extra piles to grow, skip a vacuum, or serve popcorn, cut veggies and hummus for dinner...

Wouldn't it be great to just give ourselves a little space for things to be more "real" this month?

Until someone comes up with a way for us to have extra hours in t...

Reach for the better thought

September 20, 2021

Every day we each face our own challenges, whether short-term or with no end in sight.
Each day we have a choice.
We can focus on the difficulty of the challenge and its weight upon us.
Or we can reach to the light just a little further. We can reach for the better thought.
"I choose to believe."
"I got this."
or even
"I will be a trailblazer."

Some days are easier than other with Levi's EoE (Eosinophilic Esophagitis).
He's becoming more aware of his differences, challenges and all the BIG emotions th...

How to make the best...

September 14, 2021


How wise can an 8 year old be?
Pretty wise.
Although I'm not an incredibly competitive person with others, I do get inspired to rise to a challenge.

Yesterday morning Levi woke up tired and cranky and really annoyed, thinking about how he had to run the track in gym class for 30 minutes on Mondays.

He.Didn't.Want.To.Do.It.

When he came home from school, he sheepishly shared that he had run 2 miles during gym and then dropped this wisdom on me....this quote I will use forevermore.

What Levi leaned i...

About Robin


Robin Berg Like you, I’m on a journey. I’m passionate about learning and strive to transform life’s challenges into learning, so that I can evolve (sometimes ever-so-slowly) into the best version of myself. Like anyone, I’ve had my struggles, be it healing memories from the past, navigating health issues that folded into fertility issues or having a son who has a digestive disease/disorder and the constant vigilance that it requires. And all that I’ve learned I’m devoted to sharing…so that maybe some little tool, or a nugget of insight, or hope might support you in your journey to know your Self, your Soul and step into a life of feeling guided. I always say I “accidentally became spiritual” through practicing yoga. It’s true— it opened something in me that I didn’t know was there and caused me to see things I was formerly completely unaware of. I like it much better. So, for the ups and downs, the glimmers of things useful, I’m open to sharing. Feel free to let me know if something speaks to you. *Note: These past several years I’ve been focused on life as a Mama while maintaining thriving cozy coaching practice. Now, in 2020 I’m gearing up to start sharing and expanding again. Meanwhile feel free to check out posts on instagram @RobinPBerg and Facebook https://www.facebook.com/SoulMoxie/.
