Hey guys! It's been a minute since you've heard from me so I just wanted to fill you in on some life updates - what's been going on with me lately and where I've been.
When you start a project like this one, that is forever changing in the industry, it's important to stay consistent. I get that...totally. But when life happens I'm not the type of person to force words out if it doesn't flow in the moment. If it doesn't feel in alignment with who you are... don't force it.
And I'm not saying that this platform doesn't flow for me, because it does. But honestly, life has just been stressful and other things have taken up so much of my time.
Lately I've found out a ton about myself - one of the biggest things is that I am TOO self aware. Being someone who developed anxiety in the last few years, my Therapist really put it into perspective for me. Do you ever find yourself always thinking about the next big thing? Or find yourself saying, "When this happens I'll finally be able to take a break/be happy/ find peace" etc? It's a challenge that I've been up against for the last few years. And I'll be totally honest when I say that yeah I totally place the blame on Covid Lockdowns and the uncertainty of the world in the front most part of my anxious brain. But there is such a thing as being too self aware, and going with the flow - is necessary for a calm mind.
I've been diving deep into breathe work and Meditation week after week and have found this to be some of the best Tools I'm forever keeping in my Mental health Tool Kit. Movement has been something I've made more important lately too. Fitness used to be so second nature for me, but after years of struggling with various eating related issues, (we could say eating disorders), I slipped away from the passion for fitness because I always worked out to lose weight/gain muscle. I've now found a comfortable balance where I'm respecting my mind and body by not beating myself up over what I ate yesterday, or working out to burn off my meals. It's all about balance y'all!
I've been working on some partnerships behind the scenes that will be of great use to y'all if you're anything like me! I cant wait to share more with you about that soon, but for now I'll leave you with this....
If it was easy, everyone would be doing it. Don't stress over what you can't control, and dive DEEP into your Tool kit when need be. You know what's best for you, at the end of the day.
