Life style changes occur in regular cycles for many people. Of course there are those who have "found their spot in paradise" whether it is on an island in the Pacific or a tiny weatherboard cottage in a small country town, or even a small flat which they call their own in a suburb of any mighty city and they don't have need to take stock and think seriously and hard about moving around.
But for others, the "call of the wild" or "freedom" is a constant reminder that they feel out of place, and unfulfilled where they are at that time.
With the advent of the unstoppable and ever expanding communication technologies which are becoming available to most of us, women everywhere are becoming more aware of their need to be satisfied with where they are - geographically as well as emotionally, and where they want to go. That technology in many respects opens up new windows of opportunity, even though at first they may appear to be challenges. Yet how these women are going to get where they want to be is yet another question which demands answers.
For those women fortunate enough to have their own homes, and/or businesses, and not to be under the threat of "eviction" wither from their home or their marriage (partnership), and who have financial savings which can see them even through the foreseeable future, then the world's their oyster, in every way possible.
On the other hand there are those who have suffered emotionally and in some cases physically abused, through bad relationships - whether it be marriage, bad parents, friends and/or even adult children. These women need extra incentives to first of all establish what they want for themselves and then what they want from life. How they strive to attain it depends on the support of family and friends, and sometimes only from the support each of us can build up from within ourselves.
Those without financial savings to call upon are quite often faced with problems that at first appear unsurmountable, but women are resilient, especially when encouraged by others who understand their plight.
It is so important for each of us to learn to value our own worth. Our personal integrity demands it. If we really want something with all our heart and mind then we should go out and do what we can and what we have to do, to assure that goal is reached. And if it isn't? Well, you know full well that you've done the very best you could at that moment in time - and that effort could well form the ground-work necessary to achieve later goals. Initially some may say you haven't tried hard enough or that you didn't really want to succeed in the first place - but how do they know? Don't waste time listening to them - your self esteem can't allow THEIR opinions to take over your own personal goals.
You've got to be satisfied with what you do and how you go about improving life for yourself. Don't be satisfied with less than the best you can achieve.
We all have limitations. We all have different needs and wants. We all have different levels of those needs. And we all come from different socio-economic environments.
But don't let any of these things deter you in your quest to conquer doubts and to realise your dreams.
And why shouldn't we all have dreams? They're the building blocks of confidence.
Set yourselves some simple little "wants" and go out and prove to yourself that you can achieve them. It's up to you.
