I want you to think of a seed, a tiny but inspiring seed.....crazy hey, but we will come back to that thought.
WITH every ounce of truth that I have, I am going to say that I actually adore how my life and my story are turning out. My journey hasn't always been easy and it certainly hasn't always been popular. but it is my story, my own journey; and sometimes I lose sight of where I planned to walk. There are many times too, when I actually stepped off the yellow brick road and found a better version.
YOUR work matters, what ever you choose to do and however that impacts people, it does matter - truly. Your job, no matter where you work, will, to a degree come into contact with others. It is all important.
I want you to remember how incredible of a life you’ve written so far. I know its not perfect, and neither is mine! But we all get to take that journey, the details, the pieces we think no one has seen... and turn them into a powerful story.
IN those moments you’re working hard, waking up earlier than you really want to, working into those midnight hours, you’re making something great. We all see it! The people who love you know it and are impacted greatly by you.
NOW here's something you need to hear. All that juggling you’re doing is, of course, impressive, but remember that you can, and should, focus on one thing at a time. You’re a powerhouse, I get it! But none of us are supposed to bury ourselves under the weight of a million priorities.
REMIND yourself that right now, the world isn’t going to stop spinning if you allow yourself to narrow your focus a bit. We need you and all your creativity, but we also need you to clock out, unwind and remember that you’re killin’ it. Look at how far you’ve come.
Think about every obstacle you’ve conquered. Guess what? That’s who you are, and you’re going to keep killin’ it. It’s in your nature.
TAKE that big, deep breath we talked about, then treat yourself to another one. Allowing yourself to be satisfied and at peace with yourself today is the first step. Your rhythm for whatever you’ve got on the schedule today is important to drive you forwards, but there should also be time for you. Time that gives you time to breathe, move, and enjoy the life.
YOU do have every right to enjoy your life. To feel the need to catch a breath from time to time, and to allow your head to be filled with the perfect sound of nothing. The hard bit is actually doing that. but that's ok too.
REMEMBER your seed. Well, the seed gets to lie still and be, in one form. Then when the conditions are right, that seed can start to germinate. The potential of what the seed becomes is limitless. It requires a few basic elements to all be in the right place and then - of it goes. Its odd but this is how I thought of my own journey. The power and the drive to change helped my to grow and develop.
