Filling the Well: An experiment in Prosperity

Nicole Emery

 
Filling the Well Challenge.jpg
 

For the month of November I'm doing two things to open doors of possibility in my life.

  • Starting the intense hunt for employment in Portland
  • Filling my well of prosperity

Lets face it, job hunting can be draining, exhausting, have plenty of lessons in rejection, and hit the panic button in us more than we care to admit. The roller coaster can be a bit brutal if we let it consume us in deciding our worth in the work force. Been there. Done that. Have too many t-shirts. This time I want to try something different.  Something that allows me to remember who I am in a way that removes the charge of chaos and uncertainty. At the very least keep a good head on my shoulders with some healthy perspective.

In the past big triggers were the feelings of "lack" or "emptiness" or "unworthy" during the pursuit. Although, normal to experience, they derailed me in keeping the momentum going. This time I'm going to put focus on what I already have and what is coming in on a daily basis through the month of November. An experiment in prosperity begins.

A lesson I've learned over the years is in order for success to happen it requires two distinct ingredients: (1) an unrelenting "why" as your guiding force, and (2) faith that all the resources you need are indeed present, or within reach. I'd like to add a third overlooked ingredient - recognition and honoring of what is. If I can't recognize or honor what I have, then how on earth could I ever expect another to do the same? Additionally, if my well isn't full, then how can I ever operate at a higher capacity without burnout or damage? The experiment in prosperity is an attempt in answering the question if this third idea is a worthy ingredient for success.

Taking stock My Why is super clear and sharp! Now, it is a matter of remembering the clear, and at times obscure, resources that are present for a successful outcome. I believe in my heart that this will make a difference in the overall job hunt experience.

November Challenge: For 30 days I will post on Instagram something that fills my well of prosperity. It can be a thought, a thing, a person, a place, inspiration, Divine guidance, a phrase, etc. Anything that serves as a reminder of what is available to support my journey.

If you would like to follow along, or create your own "Filling the Well" experience, here's the guidelines:

  1. Post a photo daily on Instagram about something that is in your well.

  2. Use one or all the following hashtags:
    #30daysoffillingthewell
    #fillingmywell
    #wellofprosperity
    #30daychallenge
  3. Have fun with it! Tag me in your posts if you want to (@studioneela). I'd love to see what's in your well!

Cheers to filling our well of prosperity! Let's see where it takes us.

One Year of Nomadic Living

The last 12 months have been action packed with so much - places, people, reflections, realizations, moments to remember, bonds broken, ideas formed, and a whole lot of choices made. When this journey began it wasn't exactly clear what it was going to be about. Nor, did it make itself clear on when or how it would end.

Portland, OR ended up being my final destination.  Home, at last.

As I get settle into my Portland life I've decided I needed a way to capture what I've learned in the past year. You, dear reader, get the benefit of the bird's eye view on my life choices. Over the next 12 months, starting September 15th a newsletter called "Nomadic Notes" will be sent. It's a once a month publication about lessons learned, places visited, and answering your burning questions about nomadic living. I'm excited to share with you!

Please contact me with your burning questions.  No topics are off limits. I'll do my best to incorporate my answers in future posts.

Some questions so far have been:
What ever happened to that church in Canada?
Did you meet someone special along the way?
What really did happen in Vegas?
What exactly is a nomadic life?
What kind of costs are involved with a nomadic life?
Can you help me plan a nomadic adventure?
What did your family and friends think of this choice?
Are you ever going to go back to work?
Were you scared?

Don't miss out on the newsletter.  To sign up go to this link: Nomadic Notes.
