Are you putting things off? Saying that you'll do it "someday" or "as soon as..."? Especially this time of year, it's quite common. It's the end of year. It's cold and it gets dark early. The holidays are upon us and "we just don't have the time." This is what I hear a lot. Not having the time is a common phrase I hear ALL THE TIME. We all have the same 24 hours in a day. EVERYONE! It's not that we don't have the time. We are choosing to not make the time. Big difference. The original statement makes it seem like it's out of our control. The second statement is about ownership and how WE are the ones that create our time. Sometimes it's about starting with 5 minutes. Five minutes is better than no minutes.
That feeling of stillness and not sure what to do and just feeling stuck. And sometimes it’s not just stuck but it’s STUCK. CAPITAL LETTERS STUCK. Yeah. Let’s talk about this. Let’s have this convHERsation. Whether it’s with our mental state or physical state (Hint: It’s probably both), our job, our career, our family, our friends, our activity, our life path, or all of the above - we get this feeling from time to time.
What conversation are you currently having with yourself? With your goals? With your life?
Do you keep saying you’re going to do something and then you don’t?
Do you mentally exhaust yourself from overthinking that you end up watching old episodes of The Office on Netflix? OK, maybe it’s not The Office but it’s a show you’ve seen a ton and you recognize that nothing is going to happen by doing the same thing over and over. It doesn’t get you different results. Wouldn’t it be nice if it did? Well, sure, but let’s be realistic.
