I am a visionary, a day dreamer, a goal chaser. I love the feeling of going for something big, even if it feels impossible. It’s a strength… to a fault..
I was laying in bed last night thinking about my life. I was thinking about the woman I am and the woman I want to become.
In the last few weeks I have been really dialing down my goals and I have been feeling a bit lost in the work. I have been going, going, going and while part of me loves the hustle and bustle of working I realized I wasn’t living.
I am not living.
Sure, I take time for self care, being present and mindful with myself and my family, I do things I enjoy, and I am generally happy but deep down there is something missing.
I am looking too far ahead and not seeing what’s right in front of me.
The joy is in the work, not the reward.
This subtle mindset shift has had profound effects on myself and my work.
I realized there are things I am doing that I don’t enjoy and things I enjoy that I am not experiencing.
What’s the point of carving out your own path if you’re not doing what you love?
So, I did a life audit.
Where am I spending my time? What do I wish I could do more of? What is going to move me closer in my goals without compromising my love for the journey?
I have been leaning into the thought that nothing is certain in this life except the here and now, and death.
So if I can make the here and now really, really good then nothing else matters.
So here I am, writing to you, not because I have to but because I love to.
Life is too long to spend time on things you hate… and too short to not have a good ass time living.
What can you use more of?
