The Struggle Is Real
Life. Every day. Fitting in everything and a then a little bit more. Finding the calm with in the crazy. Yes yes yes, the struggle is real.
So it's been exactly 2 months since I flew back from my magical, soul awakening holiday in Bali. Returning I was so excited as I had spent time thinking about all of my amazing dreams that were going to manifest this year, goals I wanted to achieve and so much more. In my mind it was all achievable and I was pumped. Maybe I was on a high holiday mode and not thinking 100% clearly on how big the gap was from where my life was to where I want it to be. As the last 2 months have been full of many up's and down's trying to achieve everything. Yes when it comes to me and my goals I'm sometimes impatient, I want it all in my life now!
I have been so focused on the end goal of my AM and PM routines that I stopped enjoying the journey getting there. The amazing things I wanted to introduce into my life was more feeling like a chore and then I beat myself up if I didn't achieve it. This is NOT what my blissful, magical, calm within the crazy life was mean to feel like. What was I doing wrong?
So I stopped and got back to basic's. I thought about why I wanted to create and do all of these things in my life. It was to make me feel better and calmer, not more stressed out! So I just picked one of my goals and connected back with that. I didn't just want to "do" it, I wanted to remember "why" I was wanting to do it.
Starting this week fresh with my new mindset my goal was to do daily mantras with 10 min meditation a minimum of 3 times a week. Now this excited me again, exactly what I wanted to feel and connect with. I felt great about doing it and understanding why I wanted to do this in the first place. So I'm going to do this for the next few weeks, till I do it without even thinking about it, then I will touch back in with my other goals and figure out my next step.
See we are human, we are not perfect and most times when trying something new you fall down 7 times only to get up 8. If something isn't working, try a different way. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing more than once and expecting a different outcome.
Check in with yourself if you feel like you're going against the world and not connecting with your soul when implementing a new habit, then stop. Re-assess and then move forward in a new direction towards your desired outcome.
Don't beat yourself up beautiful people, love and understand yourself a little bit more and enjoy the journey to your destination.
