Was there a time in your life when you wanted to do it all? When you wanted to fit everything in? Yet for years you resisted the idea that you would have to let some things go. There was a time when I was determined to be the perfectionist in everything that I did. Which I finally realised was a total recipe for stress, exhaustion, not being present, not “smelling the roses” and fundamental self-abuse.
So, I decided that by making choices, by letting some things go, I would make space for new things to grow. Instead of being the perfectionist, I now think of myself as the high achiever. I proudly set healthy boundaries for my life. Daily I integrate and maintain selfcare time into my busy schedule. To do this I had to change my existing lifestyle behaviours by letting certain things go.
Try it today. Letting the unimportant things go, you create space in your life for new things to root & grow.
But first, you need to go through the painful process of letting some things go and the swirl of emotions that come along such as; guilt, failure, not-good-enough, regret, frustration, sadness, disappointment.
Once you do this, then you have the space (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) to create the type of life that you truly want. Plus, it feels so good! Uplifting, Empowering, Spacious, Grounded, Present, Creative, Powerful, Supported, Freedom.
