Feeling like you should be “further” ahead…
You are in the process of creating your a fabulous life for yourself and YES, it takes longer than you expected. Not only can it take longer but many times it takes more work than we anticipated.
When this happens, we start to get the feeling that we “should” be so much further along in the process than we are. We beat ourselves up for it and all it does is make us even more impatient. That’s when we start to rush things and the end result doesn’t look how we planned. It’s so easy to get caught up in this high paced world and if we try to keep up, we’ll crash. And hard!
Slow Down & Enjoy The Hustle
You’re in the process of creating your ideal life and it all starts now, today! Success is a very personal journey and it’s definitely not a one size fits all deal like many people describe it to be. Wherever you are in the process of creating your ideal life, slow down and enjoy where you are TODAY, in this current moment, right now. Be present and enjoy what you’re creating. Figure out a way to make it more fun and enjoyable for you.
The only limits are in your imagination, seriously. This can be something as simple as playing your favorite music, sipping on your favorite drink, creating a more comfortable/beautiful workspace, meditating during your breaks or even completely switching the way you do things to make it more interesting and different. Spicing things up almost always gets you fired up!
I also want you to keep in mind how far you’ve come. You’ve learned so much and have experienced major growth. I don’t even think that YOU fully realize all the things you’ve been through to get where you are today. Just think about it, you know what I’m talking about! Give yourself a break, some breathing room to soak it all in and move forward. We all need downtime and you deserve it. Treat yourself like you would treat your best friend. Be compassionate with yourself. Making this a practice will make the hustle feel more pleasant because you’re giving yourself breathing room. Trust me, your future self with thank you for it.
You Are Where You’re Supposed To Be!
Realize that where you are right now in your life is PERFECTLY fine and the past doesn’t define you. You have the power to control how things go tomorrow, next week, next month, and next year. Be gentle and kind to yourself, I’ll be doing the same.
If you’re not feeling it today, tomorrow is a new day and you can always start fresh!
Sending you lots of Love & Compassion,
