When was the last time you checked in with yourself? And I mean really checked in with yourself? Let yourself process, evaluate where you are, and where you want to be?
I overheard a fitness model in the gym locker room yesterday discussing how stressful her fitness modeling career was. She was right out of college, spending oodles of time training and dieting, focussing so hard on this career, and yet she sounded so miserable. Although she loved being on stage, she felt judged (obviously) and defeated if she didn’t place highly. As she was venting about how hard it was emotionally and physically, I kept thinking, “what is she doing this for?” Although this is not where my interest lies, it didn’t sound as though the pleasure or pay-off was worth the agony and pain it caused her. Regardless of what you are spending your time and energy on, ask yourself: Is this something that is of value to me?
Check in from time to time and see if where you are spending your time is truly valuable to you – emotionally, mentally, physically, financially, spiritually etc? What is the benefit? On the flip side, don’t be too hard on yourself. Remember, you can only accomplish so much at a given time. Keep a list of where you want to be putting your time: Now, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, Bucket List. This can help organize your thoughts, and keep things moving clearly and freely..xo
