Feeling overwhelmed? I have a solution…

I woke up this morning and had a moment of clarity, a sign from the universe, a decision made for me delivered on a platter…

But before I tell you what that was….

I want to give you a little bit of a background…

In the last couple of weeks, I investigated, made a decision and started (yes already started and completed 2 modules) a Bachelor of Natural Medicine…which will be followed by a Master and Phd.

So what has been on my mind is…”how am I going to fit in ‘studies’ in my busy day to day life?”

“Do you remember you promised yourself NOT to compromise on your health?”

“Do you remember where you have been before…stressed…burned out…you can’t go there anymore…”

So when I woke up this morning, I decided that I am going to delete my Instagram page…

Now this sounds silly…simple…and something that doesn’t take a lot of work right?

But truth is…it does…like everything else…

If you want to dedicate yourself to something and get results out of it, you need to take the time to nurture it….

I was so clear on my decision that after my morning routine, breakfast and getting the kids to school…I recorded a video explaining my decision and posted on Instagram…

The old version of me would have said:

“Why are you quitting?”

“What would others think of you?”

“They will probably think you are a loser”

The new version of myself is saying to me:

“Well done for making a conscious decision on where and how you want to spend your time moving forward”

“Congratulations on being true to yourself”

“I am proud of you for rearranging things when things changed in your life instead of running yourself ragged for the sake of what others will think…if anything for the sake of what your own ego will think”

So now…

We are all busy and we all have the same 24/7 hours per day…

People that are truly successful (meaning healthy and able to find fulfillment in their wotk/home life) are constantly rearranging their lives to accomplish more on the things that truly matter to them.

They are not working more and getting more stressed….

When you look at your life right now – what is the only thing you can let go of?

What it is one thing you can stop doing so you can allow more time for you to focus on the things that truly matter to you?

By the way that includes your health too…

Think about it…act on it… and don’t let the ego convince you that you are quitting…

You are not quitting, you are allowing yourself to become a better version of yourself by focussing your time on the things that truly matter to you.
