I've been reflecting this morning after a busy day yesterday moving all of the stock for my business Upcycled & Co. Lucky enough to find a wonderful local woman who was keen to take over the inwards and outwards goods tasks for me, she is now receiving all supplies and dispatching all orders. This is something I've wanted to put in place for some time, but it had to be the right time. And, it's been a process.
After building this business for the last 5 years I do have to admit that I have been reluctant to let go any of it.
Knowing my contractor is just 10 minutes away should we need to meet for any reason, makes it easier for me to get my head around and manage.
It's taken me quite some time to get to this place. In my mind, and in my heart, I've had to work through my emotions around it. My fear that it wouldn't work out well. My incorrect thinking that no-one could do it as well as I could. And, my need to control, it all.
As it has turned out, others can do a fantastic job, and I have no need to be fearful that it will all go wrong. With open communication between my new contractor and myself, there is no reason for this to happen.
Remembering that my thoughts about what might happen are what create my anxious-making feelings. And, as long as I remain aware of both my thoughts and my feelings, I have the power to change them.
So, this morning I feel lighter with this new arrangement in place. I feel relieved that I found someone close by. And, I feel I now have the time and space to put more energy into my new personal coaching and blogging business.
It feels good to let this go.
What have you been thinking about letting go of? I'd love to know. Tell me in the comments.
Until next time,
