If you don't me well, you won't know that I am a "get it done" kind of gal. I love taking action! I am kinda fearless that way. My philosophy is "Why not try it?" with most things. I am NOT a daredevil by any means though. I just mean in my business, I will try most anything. When opportunities come my way, I most often say yes, because why not?
I love this about myself actually. I am not afraid to try, but where I can fall short is in the more flowing allowing side of things. I am usually so focused on doing that I sometimes forget to let it go and relax. I know this about myself, so I am ahead of the game on that. But every so often I will catch myself in that "doing" mode, where I am allowing myself (my choice you see) to get all wonky and off center (no one does this to me, I allow it).
I found myself doing this the other day with blogging. I was writing daily here in this little blog, and it was becoming just another thing to check off my to do list. I wasn't feeling the joy. It was becoming a "have to". When you do things from a place of joy and fun, it just feels good. If it moves on over to the "have to" or "should do" side of things, that is where you gotta stop yourself and regroup for a bit.
I mean who says I HAVE TO blog every single day? "They" do. Why do I care about that? That is the question worth my time answering. And the answer is, I do not care what "they" say about it. I am pretty damn consistent in all of my efforts.
This advice I am dishing out today goes for pretty much anything in your life. If you find yourself doing something that you just don't really wanna do any longer, I invite you to pause and ask why you are doing it? Is it because you want to or feel you have to? You can always change your perspective about the thing, you can just stop doing it, or you can continue to do the thing even though you hate it.
As always, you are the powerful creator in your life and you get to choose your experience!!
