A guest post from Margaret from Le Loft dArt showing you how to be positive and follow your dreams!
When the pandemic hit and covid changed the world some people picked to re-evaluate their life, others were required to. , if you are having a hard time to be favorable about how your life is altering and require to look at being more positive this story might really motivate you.
Modifications are coming
For the 4 years before lockdown, I regularly travelled to London from Scotland, even more so in the last two years. I enjoyed my life; I spent weekdays regularly in the city, weekends delighting in the countryside back home.
I was working 12-16 hours per day, and I was losing belief in my capabilities. Work and travel had been a huge part of my life for so long that I didnt understand how to handle being at house every day.
There was modification everywhere; the working environment, expansion of the team that I worked in, a modification of direct reports, and my status within the structure. Things started to take their toll.
February 2020 seems like a life time earlier, and yet it is a little over 18 months.
I felt like a caged animal, an errant teen grounded for some misdemeanour. Still, it should just be for a couple of months, right?
My daughter had moved south, and we were able to capture up every 3 weeks or so for a hug, a chat, supper and some beverages.
All non-essential travel is to be ceased with immediate result. Do not travel in between sites unless absolutely required. For meetings, utilize video conferencing. It was a blow to my way of life and my plans for the future.
Emphasize your positives
My daughter had actually encouraged me at the latter end of 2019 to show my art online. I did, and the responses of assistance and motivation were overwhelming. I ventured into selling my art, and I had some success. So, I created my own website, and so Le Loft DArt was born.
A position had come up at work that I had been told was my own. I felt once again ignored.
I immersed myself more, as many individuals have done, in nature. I chose strolls, cycled, went kayaking and even used up open water swimming. I likewise began to take a look at my art as an escape route at the weekends.
I felt undetectable to the one individual in my organisation that I wanted to impress. Borders in between Scotland and England suggested that my first break in nine months was cancelled.
The Law of Attraction
At the start of 2021, I submersed myself into the method the Law of Attraction works. I enrolled on two life-coaching courses consecutively. I strove at altering my mindset in so many areas of my life. I still do– every day!
Then I found the Law of Attraction. I started to realise that what takes place to you is totally within your control. Even when things arent going the way you desire them to, you can always take a viewpoint that allows you to work with the difficulties you are dealt, and discover a positive way to look at them or handle them.
The Law of Attraction teaches you to ask for what you want and stop focusing on what you dont desire. A simple example is saying, “I wish to be on time” instead of “I do not wish to be late.” It teaches you to comprehend the stories you inform yourself to excuse yourself from acting to get what you desire.
One of mine was that I utilized to state to individuals I wasnt built to exercise; I cant breathe effectively, have a plate and pin in my wrist, my legs arent strong enough. Therefore, I allowed myself not to exercise.
I learned to look deep to see what my inner desires and drivers were. I saw that my art was now who I am, not what I did.
Do not recall with regrets
I am now 2 weeks into my brand-new life. I am dealing with illustrations for my upcoming photo rhyming book called “My Little Birdie told me … everything about colours. Its the first in a planned series of books that will grow with the audience and is expected out prior to the end of the year.

Some future prepare for me include finishing a checking and modifying course that I began some time earlier. When certified, I plan to use these services on a consultancy basis. I also prepare to travel and look to open and pull away for artists and authors to motivate each other and permit them space and time to be imaginative.
Reassessing my life, I knew that travel with the company like it had actually been in the past was remaining the past. I realised it was the part of the job I found most attractive which without it, the task was just staring at a screen all day, every day.
I served my employer three months notice. I was pursuing my dreams to end up being an author and an artist.
At the start of 2021, I submersed myself into the method the Law of Attraction works. I worked hard at altering my state of mind in so many areas of my life. The Law of Attraction teaches you to ask for what you want and stop focusing on what you dont desire. Individuals spoke about the individual at a virtual memorial service for coworkers, and I promised from that day that I desired to be remembered for all the things that I have done and not all the things that I wanted to do.
At the start of 2021, my group was ravaged by 2 deaths in the business. One was a senior manager, and the other was a member of our own team.
After the 2nd, I reassessed my life. Individuals spoke about the person at a virtual memorial service for colleagues, and I swore from that day that I desired to be remembered for all the important things that I have done and not all the important things that I wanted to do. I resigned.
I have actually also registered with somebody to help me with my unique “No location like house.” I intend to have that out by the start of 2022. And my self-confidence in what I produce in my art grows day by day.
