Have I been through a few different phases on this (sporadic) blog? Yes I have!
So, in the spirit of 'the only constant is change...' here's the newest new...
In November I did an amazing retreat (mostly because it was full of amazing and sharing women) on the topic of being too busy.
We covered some pretty intense and universal topics... never feeling like it's enough, feeling overwhelmed, looking for purpose, comparing ourselves to others, expectations...
And we did some pretty fabulous soul searching. And, as I often do, I had my own revelations along with everyone else - bonus!
We discussed our true values, our real idea of what success would look like (vs. what we feel is expected or the norm) and we looked at making a new definition of success.
And the version that came to me was this...
"I want to change MY world."
as opposed to what I had in my head before, which was:
"I want to change THE world."
(not a lofty goal or anything right?!)
And through just a little flip of a switch in my brain, so much loveliness has come from this new mantra... I've really set more limits to doing things that I feel like I should do, or that would be good for XYand Z hypothetical or imagined reasons and started doing more and more of what I want to do for right now, for me, my husband, my family, my current life, my current world and letting go of the rest.
And the blog posts... well they went to the wayside! It was one of the things on my, "If I want to change THE world, I need to get these ideas or this info out there." but it made me feel stressed, always swamped and like it was never enough, like I was always behind and having to give up other things to find time to do this.
So, I'm going to try a different version of blogging, because what I do like.. is being inspired. And so, I'm going to start posting on things I like. Maybe just clips without commentary or little snippets. Just to put them out there because they have made MY life better.
Because what I came to conclude, is this is REALLY the way to change THE world... and it feels a whole lot better along the way :)
