Happy, Happy New Year!!!!
Do you remember when you were a kid and you got into something so fully that you lost track of everything. It could have been sports or art or maybe it was math or reading a good book or writing and you realized you had gone into a time hole hahahaha. Hours and hours had gone by and it felt like minutes.
Maybe you have had this when you were out in nature or meditating or running. This is available at all times. Just catching the wave of our passion and interest and digging into it. If you don’t have much of this in your life can you add it?
Honestly for me it is being truly present. Even when I am doing things I don’t want to do (cleaning the house, vacuuming etc.) If I am present I can actually just zip through it in a much better mental state with energy and ease.
Otherwise I drag myself around, moaning and complaining and that just sucks and it takes twice as long hahahaha.
Give yourself the gift of finding ways to bring presence and joy into your everyday activities. Maybe it’s adding music or a podcast that is exciting and fun to listen to or an audible book while you drive to the grocery.
Are you willing to commit to adding in something you LOVE doing that you haven’t been doing. The key is to just add it bit by bit. I hear you from here, “Courtney, what? Add it in, how, how, how?”
Well the real question is why? Because it feeds your soul, adds pleasure, rejuvenates you, is self care and adds massive value to your life! That is the answer that will get you to do it. When you want to and you know why you need to you will find a way to do it. Period! You will.
Look back at a time in your life when you stuck something in that was so important and you had no idea how you were going to do it because you really didn’t have “time” and you did it and it was a WOW!
I did this with my colleague and amazing friend, Julie. We went to a business seminar in 2019. We both thought omg, how, can we really and we made it happen and I am grateful everyday that we did!!! You never know when the world will shut down and you won’t be able to do it.
You deserve it. Do it. You will feel so good. It will add energy and give you a boost.
This year, make it the year of doing what you know you MUST do, no matter what. Just do it!!!
Side note….I loved Soul the Disney plus movie that is live streaming! Check it out. So good. Flow, energy, spark….it is important. Happy happy New Year! Let’s gooooooo!
