I am going through a time in my life – where I am thinking “Is this it?”
Not necessarily in a bad way – BUT I am asking myself some fairly deep questions.
Today, February 2nd, is National Ground-Hog Day.
Ever watch the movie of the same name? This is where the lead character, played by Bill Murray, finds himself trapped in a life where every day is the same.
Imagine having to do the same things, day in – day out.
Why is this relevant?
Well, I was chatting to my friend and coach Inga – last month (geez – where did January go?) … where she was helping me work out where my business should be heading in 2019. I felt however, that it needs to go deeper than – more clients and more money.
Anyway – Inga asked me a question
What would you do with your day – if every day was a Ground-Hog Day??
Oh my stars 🌟 That question blew me away! Making me realise that I am often filling my days with the wrong stuff, like:
- crap that I don’t enjoy doing,
- unnecessary clutter,
- stuff that does not serve me,
- thoughts that hold me back
- and just things, that if I had to do all the time, would just make me miserable.
I am therefore going to do things differently.
OK, OK – that’s not saying that we can all skip through the tulips abdicating responsibility and only doing lovely, nurturing and fun stuff. BUT – it DOES mean that we should be doing more of that lovely stuff and less of the activities that makes us feel rubbish.
In case this is you … and you are realising that your life might need a little bit of adjustment :
If there are tasks that you don’t want to do – spread the load a bit more and DELEGATE.
If there are people that drain your energy – make sure you see them less.
If there are thoughts that aren’t doing you any good – change them ( this blog post will help )
Just allow yourself that thought ( you’ll be glad that you did ) and think … are you living your life in such a way that, should your ‘average’ day become your Ground-Hog Day, you’d be happy with that?
If so … BRAVO!
If not … What would you change?
I am looking at the things that I am grateful for and the things that make me happy.
I’m gonna do more of that in the future.
What about you?
Much Love 💕
