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.
Even for those of us who are service-driven and mindful, as normal human beings it’s natural for us to asses a situation in terms of what we can get out of it. It’s a natural survival technique really, “is this worth expending my energy on?” That is a totally valid question and it’s important that we ask ourselves just that. Yet, there are so many other times—especially in our modern world where basic survival is not our top priority—when the question of “what can I get out of this” is overemphasized.
Happy Friday, all! This weekend marks the first that my husband is officially home for the fall/winter season. We’re celebrating with an overnight truck-camp in the Sawtooths and planning for a longer trip next week.
But first, it’s Friday Digs!
Fri-yay! Can you guess? Farmer’s market, cooking, and frisbee with the pup—my favorite weekend rituals.
But first…it’s Friday Digs!
I was looking back in my journal this weekend. Earlier this year I wrote:
“Broken. I don’t feel broken. More like not put together. Like there are pieces around me, and I know these pieces, I’ve studied them, I know where they want to go. Yet, I can’t seem to put them there.”
The last month I’ve been in a bit of a haze—between stress, to-do lists, and too much future tripping, I let my soul-priorities go right out the window.
And you know what happened? Not that much. I still did everything I had to do. I still had accomplishments. I learned things. I got through my days.
I’m actually not stupid. Or wrong. Or different from anyone else. But you know what? It’s taken me about 32 years to realize that.
