Listen to the newest episode of my podcast, The Freedom of Choices: People come into your life for a reason…even your ex’s 😁 https://anchor.fm/the-freedom-of-choices/episodes/People-come-into-your-life-for-a-reason—even-your-exs-e2ikkc
I’m always doing. Planning, overthinking. What are the next steps? What is the next move? The only time my mind and body really idles is when I’m watching a movie.
“Doing” is innately who I am. I don’t need to be taught or told. I just do.
I even worry about being worried too much 🤦 More fixated on tomorrow than the moment.
I realize this, therefore, living in the moment is a behavior I have to work on. I literally have to “practice being.” For short periods I’m in the flow of just being. Then it turns back into my natural state of “doing.”
The people closest to you are normally the ones that question your ability to conquer your dreams the most. Sad but true. They love you and mean well but they just aren’t sure of you. It could be their own insecurities. Or maybe they’ve seen your ways (Netflix binge 3 out of 4 weeks).
Before you get all huffy and puffy, let’s think this through. What do you fill your day doing? The entire 24 hours.
My answer: I do a lot of things. Too many to list off the top of my head.
That isn’t a good enough answer. I know this and so do you. How do we remedy this? 🤔
Ah ha! Journal it! It may seem very tedious. You might even think it’s a waste of time. But if you really what to know if it’s – 1) their own insecurities or 2) you Netflix and binge way too much … then you should do it.
Now, be honest. Don’t all the sudden be more productive because you’re holding yourself accountable. Keep living how you have been. No one is going to read it and judge you. In the end, it’s just to help you.
You will either say…I know you really think I can’t do it but that’s your own insecurity speaking OR… I fuck around way too much.
I think journaling daily for 30 days is sufficient to really get a good idea of how you spend your time. I’m gonna do this too 😬
Don’t be lazy. You have nothing to lose and so much to gain 🤓
