I know from experience that, as a being, I benefit with each challenge life brings my way. We grow stronger when we go through difficult times in our lives. Period.
Busy-ness wears us down. Look around at all the people with their heads dipped over their phones and taking anti-depressants. How many people do you know who take anti-depressants but are still depressed? It’s time to Slow the F*ck Down!
Why do we stop setting goals? Because we think “we’re happy enough”. We’ve hit all the targets: kids, house, husband, job… Who are we to ask for more? WHO ARE YOU NOT TO?!?!?
Uh….wait a second. Who are you not to ask for more? You are here to evolve. You have done a wonderful job living so far, right? Yay you! Seriously, everything you’ve done and accomplished has been for a reason but that doesn’t let you off the hook. You have many, many more years to live and many, many more things to accomplish.
I stepped back to realize that my thoughts of being too busy were not serving me. I changed my mindset from “I’m too busy for that” to “I have more than enough time”. A scarcity mindset does not produce an abundant life.
I spent years avoiding taking action; choosing instead to complain, blame, and avoid the work. The marriage you want, the lifestyle you want, the health you want, the relationship with your kids that you want? All of that is possible. IF…you actually do something. If you take action. If you do the work.
