So I’m very much in the thick of some really deep stuff. This year started out with my hubby and I asking the universe for some MOVEMENT in many areas of our lives.
We cut cords of old beliefs that were no longer working for us,
We felt our feelings fully,
We made lists of what we want to feel and experience in the year 2017.
Anyway, there was a lot of stuff. A lot of work, and shifting ideas and beliefs and starting fresh. So it’s no wonder that so far this year has been full of
GROWTH,.. oh so much, so much growth.
Everywhere I look has been another huge epiphany.
So I was thinking, what do most of us do when we are in pockets of life that are extremely stressful?
Most of us have been taught to:
Put our nose to the grindstone,
Get less sleep,
Literally shove ourselves THROUGH THE STRESS.
Well how’s that working for us? Not great, at least not for me.
So I’m taking a different approach. The more change, the more stress, the more crazy life gets, the more I will take CARE OF MYSELF. It’s already stressful, why make it more so? If I can give myself more naps, or breaks, or laughs, or doodle moments, I will come back renewed and in a great place full of creativity.
If I push without feeling, drained and exhausted, my work and my life will not be very good. I won’t be able to come up with solutions, and I’ll end up so annoyed and disconnected and irritated. What a horrible way to use my energy.
Never underestimate the power of being in a good place. The more time spent taking care of ourselves automatically will put us miles ahead of someone that is just hanging there by a thread.
So, I’ll be listening to my body and my heart. What do I NEED to do to get into an empowered fun open place? That is my priority so I can actually accomplish.
