I am still in complete AWE over the “Totality Solar Eclipse 2017“. When the news media first started talking about it, I could not for the life of me understand what was so outstanding about those 2 minutes.
The most experienced astronomers would concede that a total solar eclipse is the most powerful, gorgeous, and even life-altering of all celestial phenomena, they’d rate a vivid display.
We got the glasses….but missed the T-shirts
I added the times the media talked about in my phone so it would alert me to the changes as they would happen and we waited for Totality Solar Eclipse August 21st to happen.
My son and I drove around town 2 hours before show time to snap chatted the visitors that came to our small country town to see this amazing event. They were from everywhere!
The people were amazing, calm not disturbing, or disorderly for a crowd of people.
The energy in the town was excited, anticipation, calm, but electric.
We got back home about the time it began and we could see it with our special NASA approved glasses. The closer it got to the full cover it was as if the earth shifted.
The air got 10-15 degrees cooler
The dogs laid down in the yard all at one time
The birds stopped singing
The crickets started singing
The outside night light came on
The 360-degree sunset was amazing
The most peaceful quiet I have ever experienced
There was an energy in the air we had never felt before and it was powerful.
2 minutes… and it was over. I wanted more… I wanted it to last longer. It was amazing!
We have to wait 7 years (I will be 58 yrs old) for the next one to happen. It will be an hour and a half from my house and I think it will be worth the road trip to see it from that angle.
Such a gift to get to see and experience with both of my boys at home in the front yard of our farm. Nature took our breath away and left us standing in complete awe of how things happened in a blink.
I experienced another Eclipse in my life when I decided I wanted more. I wanted to have those income checks people talked about from the stage – you know the ones I am talking about. They tell their story about the struggle and how they worked to get to be in those positions. The stories that are sometimes hard to believe and makes you wonder if they are true.
You want to believe them but it seems too far away to think you could be that person telling your story.
The first time I sat on Ray Higdon’s stage to share my story with a crowd of over 350 my world shifted. Less than 3 years ago I was still dragging my behind into my nursing job every day mumbling under my breathe and clock watching. I was miserable. I knew I wasn’t doing what I was supposed to be doing but I still had to pay the flipping bills and kids to feed. It took both my husband’s and my paychecks to keep up with a family of 4 and a farm, my son was in travel baseball, my youngest was in soccer.
I was traveling with my business absorbing every ounce of knowledge I could get from other leaders.
I wanted more. I may have said that already but I wanted it.
I knew I was not living up to my potential therefore I felt it in the daily struggle to get to the job and survive the shift.
Every attempt to doing something to improve the work process at my nursing job was shut down.
Everything was a constant frustration to make even small changes in my department. I could have chewed and ate bricks easier than going through the corporate shuffle.
Getting a copy machine was drama, then asking for paper to use in the copy machine, ink pens for the classroom, fresh material for the classroom. Computers that weren’t 10 years old and on their last leg.
My adrenal glands suffered and my thyroid glance had a flashing yellow light blinking saying it was in need of change. I had daily headaches that set me on the couch every afternoon trying to get them to go away. I had shoulder pains, lower back pains. My body was screaming for help and I heard it loud and clear. Within the first year of being on the day-shift my stress increased and I gained 15lbs.
I worked harder than anyone else to get out of that position even though I was terrified to leave the comfort of a routine I had known for so many years.
My total Eclipse came. I had enough time served plus my age and my sick time hours to retire 2 years early. I ordered the paper work the day it became available.
I wanted out… I needed out… I had to get out…. I wanted MORE.
If you are still reading you are most likely shaking your head, you have done it, or felt it and you know what I am talking about. I could not have waited another 2 years to get out – I was burnt out like crispy bacon.
How long are you going to wait to see your total eclipse? Another 7 years, another 10, 15, 20?
Let’s be real – none of us are getting younger the world is spinning we saw that at the Totality Solar Eclipse 2017.
If you need training to get started you need to grab Live Stream Ticket for the Top Earner event with Ray Higdon. You can do that here…. You have to know what to do before you can make a change in what you are doing or not doing.
Don’t spin on your axes for another 7 years…start your own eclipses.
