Hi Friends,

Happy to share my latest vblog on my Mistake #3 – Letting the “Pendulum Effect” Rule My Life – another installment of My 52 Mistakes.

This mistake is all about waiting too long to make change, resisting what is, then being devastating and jumping to the opposite extreme, only to discover the same yucky stuff awaits (because you haven’t done the inner and outer work to overcome these same challenges).

I’d love your thoughts.  Does the Pendulum Effect rule your life? And what have you done to stay more balanced and grounded rather than swinging from extreme to extreme?

Please send me a video blog or story of your own, and share it on the new facebook page for this project, My 52 Mistakes.  Thanks so much for commenting and spreading it along!

One thought on “Mistake #3 – Letting the “Pendulum Effect” Rule My Life”

  1. I’m really struggling with this in my life right now. For the past 2-3 years now I’ve been job hopping so much. Whenever something “bad” happens, I just run away and think “oh I’ll be happier if I had a different job”. It’s been hard for me to accept having to stay at one job and feel “trapped”. I almost start to get claustrophobic and want to just run away. I definitely have regrets because of it. I think “if I would have just stuck it out it could have gotten better…”
    Right now I’m in a job that is seriously just burning me out. But I’ve held this job the longest so far in the past 2-3 years. (For a year now.) I’ve tried to just enjoy it and focus on the positive, but deep inside me I’m really not happy. I’m just “grinning and bearing it”. I’ve always wanted my own business. So I have a great business idea and want to start it up. But my husband is really worried about it, which I can’t blame him because I haven’t been stable with jobs. He’s worried it won’t be successful and we will be struggling financially again. So I’m not going to up and quit my job yet, just start doing the business on the side and if it works, increasing the hours. I just don’t know how to be happy in the situation I’m in. Each day feels so hard, like a heavy weight. I’ve had people tell me “just think positive” and “just trudge on”. It gets so frustrating hearing that. If you could give me some advice i would really appreciate it. Thanks so much!
