IT'S TIME TO LET GO...
Updated: Aug 7, 2020
I find it so weird how humans can be so terrible at connecting the dots in their life, becoming so disconnected.
I suppose it shouldn’t be so alarming considering how we live our lives - so fast paced that we struggle to have time, the insight, the awareness to actually take stock of what’s going on. So distracted by how loud the outside world is around us.
Bit by bit, day by day, we stop listening to the voice within. We don’t realise that we are compromising ourselves and what we really want. As a Mum, more than ever I have realised how time can literally mean nothing. Hours turn in to days, in to weeks, all of a sudden months past and another year has gone. It all just rolls in to one big rollercoaster called life.
And all of a sudden we are saying yes to things that aren’t aligned, no to things we don’t just want but really need and make decisions without pausing to listen for the right answer.
Starting to relate…?
I hear you, I have been feeling it too. This pandemic/isolation/"whole world as we know it has gone mad" thing got me bad and I didn’t even know it.
I’ve been caught up in too much media. I don’t watch or listen to the news, but social media has replaced that for me. I got caught up thinking I needed to be “informed” so my scrolling became worse than it has ever been not realising it had taken the place of other things that need my attention more.
Like my physical health, my nutrition, my personal growth, my spiritual health.
It’s funny how the things that are be high on our list of values can fall by the wayside when we start justifying why we need to divert our attention elsewhere. There is a pandemic happening in the world after all….. (hmmm)
All of a sudden I realised I was holding on to and allowing a lot of things in my life that were really not serving me. It took my body to feel run down, tired and depleted and frustration in my lack of progress on a personal and business level to realise something had to change. That the outside world had captured my attention and sucked me in to it’s vortex of chaos, uncertainty and never ending “information”.
I was neglecting what was important.
So it was time to release what is no longer serving me. Shedding the things that weigh me down like a snake sheds its skin (Ew! But such a good analogy, right?) Unfollowing, unsubscribing, pausing before making decisions and more and more checking in.
And it’s already starting to feel really good.
What do you need to release that is not serving you?
PS. Sometimes we need a little help to really understand what our true purpose is. It took me a few years post becoming a mother to really understand what I wanted to do with my career. I knew I wanted it to be purposeful work that I loved and that I wanted to keep kicking goals, but I had no idea where to start. After years of self development work and spending lots of money on coaches and mentors, it all finally became clear. But I wanted to develop a resource so Mums didn't have to take the long route to realising their purpose and passions. That's why I created 21 Days to Purpose and Passion, a self paced, online, value packed course to help fasttrack you to understanding exactly what your purpose is in life where you can live out each doing exactly what you love (and be paid for it too).
