Since getting my business license and going full time into self employment, my world has been a whirl of activity, both physically and mentally. I am constantly thinking, day and night, which is not allowing for proper sleep time, but new ideas, questions, concerns and the like are constantly running through my head. How can I make my business a success? How can I draw more attention to my online shop? What other options for selling are there that I haven't tried yet? What should I create tomorrow? Where should I begin with all the projects I want to do and have in mind? What if this doesn't work? Yes, it's been a mix of highs and lows, of confidence and doubt, of self-assurance and nervous worry.
I think that we all experience this at some point in our lives (please tell me I'm not the only one going bonkers), whether it's related to a job, a business, our relationships, or personal growth and I hypothesize as to whether it's counter-productive or not? Is it best to be less obsessed and more passionate? Does the obsession drive us to motivation or insanity? LOL I may have already gotten to that last part! Anyway, all kidding aside, I think what we all need is to get in touch with something that makes us take that deep breath and exhale slowly, to relax, to gather our thoughts in a more organized, less frantic manner. We need to clear the clouds of doubt and negativity, whether originating from outside sources or from within ourselves. We need to work hard, but take time out to regroup and reconnect with our lives as a whole. We really do have the power to accomplish anything we put our minds to. We have the talent, the intelligence, the motivation and the drive to make things work, whatever your "thing" is. So, I'm suggesting that today, no matter what it is that you are doing, take a little time right in the middle of the chaos and find something that will cause you to breathe, to relax, to rejuvenate and reflect. It really has done wonders for my motivation today (I woke up early, organized in my thoughts and ready to go) and I hope you will benefit from it too! Have a fabulous day, friends! Hugs, ~Leena~
