Sorry I haven’t been around as much lately, I took a little mental hiatus because I needed to clear out my head. .
I’ve been feeling super frustrated and pretty down. It’s hard when you feel like you’ve been working your butt off for a while and things just aren’t working out like you had hoped. I also fell off the workout wagon a bit after my shoulder has been giving me trouble and overall just not taking care of myself. Let’s just say I’ve been a hot mess lol!
But I decided it’s time to pick myself up, dust myself off and get back at it and started off today by putting on one of my fav podcasts in the car.
I find it funny how things work out because this podcast was exactly what I needed to get my bearings back. .
It talked about how we as a society are so results driven. We are taught from a young age to expect recognition and results right away for everything we do in the form a gold star or pat on the back. We are conditioned to expect outside results for our actions. If we aren’t receiving some form of recognition, then what are we doing it for? And this is what I’ve been feeling. I’ve been waiting for that gold star, that pat on the back, but it hasn’t come in the way I’ve been looking for. .
What has happened though, by pushing myself and working hard like I told myself I was going to do, is that I’m building my confidence and making myself a better me even if I’m not getting that external pat on the back. It’s about keeping my commitments to myself. .
What commitments have you made for yourself? Are you honoring those commitments, whether it be to workout, or to eat healthy, or to read more, get outside more?
I decided to run a free 2 week group where we are going to focus on keeping those commitments to ourselves! .
