It’s Not You, It’s Me


Have you been on the receiving end of these 5 words? Or said them to someone?

They can casually dismissive, or heavy with truth.

But at the end of the day, those words are an indication that something’s just not working in the relationship and a new direction for both parties is necessary.

What about the relationship you have with your practice?

A close colleague recently reminded me that practices are ‘organic living entities’ that ebb and flow with who we are, how we are showing up, and the distractions that may be presenting themselves in our lives.

Sounds pretty much like a relationship to me. What do you think?

Sometimes our relationship with our practice changes and we realize it’s not our practice that has changed, but WE have changed.

Maybe you’ve added a child to your family.
Maybe you have extended family that needs more attention.
Maybe your clinical interests have changed.
Maybe your children have grown up I and you’re finding yourself with extra time.
Maybe you’ve suffered an injury that affects how you practice.
Maybe you have new hobbies you’d love to spend time enjoying.

Wherever you’re at, just know that it’s OK….

… to be curious about a new direction, to seek more joy in your life, and to redefine your practice so that it works for you, instead of you working for your practice.
