Happy Father's Day everyone!
I know this day can be very triggering and very emotional, so I hope you've given yourself the time you've needed to either celebrate, reminisce, remember, cry, scream, laugh, etc.
I have...and I'm wanting more time to dig deeper.
Because I've had a lot of shit rolling through my head.....a lot of emotions rolling through my heart....and I need to figure some things out.
I've become so overwhelmed in getting things right....in having the perfect job; in having the perfect relationships; in having the perfect finances; in just being perfect in general....it's getting me into so much trouble.
And by trouble, I mean I can't find me----my authentic self......my truth....my light.
That is not cool at all.
How have I lost my truth? I got caught up in doing everything.....well, actually in comparing myself to everyone else through no other than social media.
Ugh....the dreaded comparison trap. One second, I'm happily interacting with others and sending them love & light......then the next, I'm going down the rabbit hole comparing lives/milestones/pictures....it's not a pretty sight.
Oh yeah, I went there.
Don't act like you've never done that before....I mean I'm not the only one, right?
How do I get out of this mess?
Well, I've got to get back to basics. And by basics, I mean writing....connecting within....getting to know myself again.
I've committed before to writing...and that commitment only lasted two days.
This week, I'm giving myself a portion of each day to write. It can be 5 minutes or 50....either way, I choose to make time to feel. I choose to not be distracted.
When I get distracted...hear too many voices....get lost in other people's stories, I forget to live my own.
And my life is going in a pretty great direction.
Think about it--what we focus on, we manifest. And I want to manifest greatness.
I'm betting you do too.
So, what do you do to get back to basics & remind yourself of who you are??
