Hey insta! What’s happenin’, what’s up? I know it’s been a minute, but me and my psyche had to call a time out on a lot of things – one of them being social media. Life has thrown a lot of shit my way this year and it forced me to step back and take about 1200 deep breaths. Annnnnnnd repeat that process about 1200 times.
It’s so easy to get swept up in the constant need to be proving ourselves, to be doing or creating or moving or changing or improving or impressing. To be making our mark on the world and forging the path for the next generation and earning a billion dollars and excelling at our jobs and keeping up with friends and fam. The world is always screaming at us to do MORE MORE MORE, make more be more earn more love more anything more. And a lot of us do just that – give all of ourselves to every aspect of our lives in hopes of getting MORE out life. Until one day you wake up and realize that you have nothing left to give.
This is your (and my) gentle reminder that more isn’t always better. More doesn’t always equal happiness or wealth or love. More doesn’t solve your problems, and more doesn’t guarantee a better life. Sometimes all more does is leave you empty and broken and frustrated and exhausted and at your wit’s end. Sometimes, what we really need is less.
Don’t be afraid to say no, to turn off your phone, to take time for yourself, to stop and smell the roses. You can always do MORE tomorrow. Why not give yourself the gift of less today?
