Do you ever get those days where you feel like you cannot get anything done? Things are moving so fast and you can’t keep up? You set unrealistic goals for yourself, then stress trying to make them happen. I am in this position right now, have been for ages. This year has honestly been on the go, nonstop, which is very unusual for me because I do everything in my power to make sure my life is calm and sloooow. Only because I’m the type of person that gets really overwhelmed when I don’t have enough down time, time to myself. And by time, I don’t just mean one or two days…I’m talking at least 2 weeks every now and then, to recharge my batteries and focus on me. I seriously have found myself saying “I just want to be alone” way too many times recently. But no, this year, especially the past month, has been very challenging. I’m trying to fit so much into my days and my head is literally going to explode.
Anyone else feeling like this? Because I’m feeling like most of us are going through this exact same thing.
This year is a year where we are focusing on ourselves, much more than we expected. We have visions and goals that we are trying to pursue. Last year we were quite stuck and unsure of what it was that we really wanted in life…we always knew deep down but it’s all coming out now. It’s happening. It’s a year of self growth, love and awareness and I see us really connecting with our own souls as well as understanding others.
But (and I’m saying this to myself too) we need to relaaaaxxxxx!! Yes we know what we want, yes we are trying to make it happen, yes we probably know that it will happen but only when the time is right! Things will happen when they are supposed to and only the universe knows when that is. We just have to remain PATIENT and trust that although it may seem that our efforts and hard work are being ignored, they are not. They are being heard, appreciated and slowly becoming real.
Sometimes the best thing to do when your mind is busy and all you’ve been doing is rushing around trying to keep to your ‘plan’, is to stop. It is more than okay to push your dreams to the side for a few days, weeks, even months! Don’t feel bad, don’t feel that because you haven’t been giving it your all, that you do not deserve it. Don’t feel that if you stop pursuing for a while, that it will all end. It won’t, if anything you will start again and you will be better, more confident and knowledgable than what you were before. I find myself saying things like “Why am I not doing this? I should be doing this” truth is I shouldn’t be. What I should be doing is listening to my intuition and doing what feels natural. So don’t force yourself to do something because you feel you have to, that’s how passion dies. Rest your mind and take a moment to tell yourself that not everything has to happen when you want it to. Life (unfortunately) does not work that way. Remember that good things are worth waiting for. But as long as you give it those positive, nurturing thoughts, believe, it will happen.
My patience is being tested this year I tell you that.
