It’s the first Monday Mantra of the year (yay!) and I’m extra excited to share this post with you. This year, instead of making resolutions, I am committing to a set of lessons that I plan on digging into this year.
It’s normal to give reassurance to kids. But adults? We look for it in places without even realizing we’re doing it.
There are a million reasons why I shouldn’t do something. And one reason why I should.
Because I want to.
When I’m feeling stressed or out of control my guard goes up and I plan for battle.
Suddenly everyone is out to challenge my sense of security. I question my relationships, my work, and hyper-examine the actions of everyone around me because I’m convinced that they—in some way or another—are out to get me.
Paranoid? Dramatic? Totally. That’s what giving into the ego does to us.
Is perfectionism stopping you from living the life you want?
If you’re thankful, you’ll have more abundance in your life. Or so they say.
On this week of giving thanks, I want us to reflect on the notion above and see if we can give ourselves a little more context around what that really means.
I was talking with a friend last week about failure. When we dug into it, one of the scariest parts about failure is how its perceived by others. The fall we can handle, people seeing the fall—that’s the hard part.
Phew! It’s been a long (fun!) couple of weekends of travel. This weekend we’ll be enjoying some home time and prepping for next weekend’s visit to LA. (Let me know if you have recommendations!)
But first… it’s Friday Digs.
