On Turning Away
I have just removed the Mastermind Facebook group from my favourites.
This might not seem a big deal to you but I felt sick to my stomach when I did it. I have done the same with Message to Millions.
This weekend I was due to return to The States for the Mastermind graduation and another attendance of MTM live. In anticipation of these upcoming events there are loads of FB comments going around such as:
“Hello MTM Family ~ Excited to see many of you next weekend for Message to Money Live!”
“Winging my way to MTM family. Looking forward!”
Until very recently such sentiments made me feel like I was missing out and that I was on the sidelines.
Much of what I posted over the year gained very little attention or, at best, got a bland response. I received supportive comments but scant engagement with what I was saying. Eventually, I stopped posting.
Despite this I clung on and kept reading the posts, whilst torturing myself with my feelings of not belonging. Today, however, it’s time to take the first step in letting go.
Accepting that this particular group is not my “family” has taken a while but has been helped by the response I’ve had to my Unfolding Path experiment via my blog, Twitter, my CTA Rebel group and, of course, my Unfolding Path FB group.
Here are just a few of the comments I received from them:
“I’m so excited to follow your blog 🙂 I just read your latest post – you are such a talented writer & this is just my kind of blog. And I think it’s very fun 🙂 So glad we were introduced!”
“I really get you Gillian! . . . always good to read your thoughts! xx”
“Am loving this! So clear, simple, honest – just inspiring! Look forward to more!”
I think it’s fair to say it’s pretty obvious why I’m shifting my energy and attention and turning away.
Thank you all so much for your love and support and for walking this Unfolding Path with me. You both humble and inspire me!
