What we live every day are nothing less than a process destinated to expires because life is evolving and changing in itself.
There are several levels of changing and not every change is relevant on a daily basis.
Your favorite tea changes the graphic of the label...who cares; you'll keep to buy it with different packaging, it doesn't affect your life.
At the opposite, there's one thing in life that can effect on everyone's life like nothing else: the job.
You can live where you live because of your job, you eat what you eat, visit places, wear with these dresses, drive that car, go round with that people and much more because of your job.
Job effects at so many levels of routine that we end up to identify our personality with our job.
It's not a rational process. Instead, it's something that happens along the way.
Your actions and your efforts are so related to the goals of your Company that your actions become the pattern that gives you your personality and also identity.
So what if you lose the job you love, especially if it's a long-term one and you're mature, not a teenager? Is this idea paralyze you?
I remember when I lost my biggest client as a graphic designer. It was almost like losing a job, even if I was a freelancer.
I remember that a huge and dark empty appeared in my heart, a mix of emotions and questions come up in my mind.
I gave more than anyone else to that Company.
I love that job, so why they chose me? May I make some mistakes in the relationship or what? ...and the list of questions went on and on.
Now I know that that rejection was the best thing that can happen in my life. It was not easy but I started my own company some years later living in my own term even if I didn't have any idea about all these things at that time.
"How can I move from this shock? What happens to my relationship? How can say that to the family? How can I pay the rent?" at first sight everything seems to crumble in a second, right?
It's like someone steals our identity.
So, if you're reading this article you may be living a pretty same challenge, isn't it?
If so, go ahead, I'll show you some of the most important tactics I used to transform my life and most importantly, discover myself like never before.
Let's Come back to the moment your Boss or Who fired you. That's one of the hardest moment of life. Leaving that mix of feelings that come up at that moment is a huge challenge in itself. Anxiety, fears, worries, questions emerge in a huge mix to overwhelm the entire body, not just the mind.
They paralyze us, it's a stab in the heart, and, the more you're veteran in that Company, the deeper is the wound.
You mourned not only your job, but also friends and colleagues, no more daily chatting or dinner sharing, no more chic restaurants, and so on.
That's a real loss, similar to lose someone you love in an unexpected incident.
At this point, you take a deep breath because you're still alive of course (and I tell you, you're living more than ever, even if you didn't know yet) and everything you see is a path with a fork.
One path says "Still and Die", the other says "Know and Transform".
Remember, this is a choice.
Do you wanna emotionally and spiritually die with all your friends and family without knowing who you are?
Yes because most of the time challenging situations reveals many things we can't even imagine us.
If you're a mature girl or boy and you think it could be an excuse for victimization and longtime sadness, you're wrong.
Life is a process and evolution for the entire time, so you have to do your best more than ever and fight in the name of love for yourself and your family.
I'm sorry my dear, I know it sounds rude, but I think hard situations require no compromises.
I'm absolutely sure you choose the second way, Know and Transform.
Before we dive into the tools I encourage you to experiment, I wanna make sure you get a crucial fact, especially if you lost your job recently:
You're not your job:
We all tend to "classify" people with their job because it's much easier then know who they really are, their real attitude and deep desires, and that's completely normal.
It's not necessarily wrong or bad, just it is. Society needs to simplify concepts, but you have to have absolutely clear in your mind that personal identity is much more complex than a rule.
Many people unconsciously live under the mask of their job/rule their entire life identifying themselves with it because is much easier, but actually, it's not real. So they live other people's life, not their real life.
Take your time to enjoy the landscape from a different perspective.
Allow yourself to feel your emotions but don't let the stories that your mind says overwhelming you.
It's natural to be scared, worries and anxious but let them design your future is an insane choice.
Instead, replacing all the feelings that contract your stomach and hurt your heart with actions is the key that opens new amazing doors. I guarantee you.
I'm so grateful to share with you the tools I personally used to walk through this journey and start to know my real strength and personality.
So, let's dive in:
5 Key Tools that Move you Forward with Passion when You lose your job at mature age
ESTABLISH NEW ROUTINES:
You can create peace and acceptance by taking care of your emotional and mental well being with deep breathing, meditations, and self-care practices.
Including these practices in your new daily routine is a really powerful and compelling choice to maintain the control of the situation and avoid depression.
Why create a new routine is crucial:
• Dissolve negative loops:
Routine is the same action every day and nothing melts negative stories that your mind says as actions do.
The goal here is not just enjoying the practice in itself, instead also prove to yourself you take control of your life, no matter the events.
Your time is valuable, stop fighting what it is and start to create what is going to be.
• Create the right conditions to embrace the change:
it's easy to fall into the victimization and unproductive anger mood during a hard moment. However, this attitude works just to dig the deepest hole for you and your family. It doesn't work to build a positive future for no one.
At the opposite, when we prove to accept these challenge, we earn strength and good juju from the inside and people around. We'll embrace this life-shifting with more trust and an open heart so we're able to go forward to explore.
How to establish a new routine:
You are responsible for your life. The real boss was always you, not the one who managed the company you worked with.
• Choose the same hour every business day for at least 10-15 minutes of meditation. You find dozens of meditation practices in one of my Pinterest Board HERE, so go there if you need inspirations, you're new in meditations or you want to find out a new way to integrate meditation in your days.
• Wake up and go to sleep at the same hour. Now you need to be healthy and rested than never before. You need to find or create a new job and this requires mental clarity and positivity. Set an Alarm clock to wake up and the other one to go to sleep.

Living more consciously could be the fire of radical transformation and a healthy choice that relieve.

You're Breathing conciously and you're ready for practicing the Feel the Trust Meditation.
**ps. I believe in the huge value to bring meditation out of the mat.
You can meditate where ever you are., it's just practice of consciousness, that's the way that really shift your life.
