I say "future" life because that is essentially what it is. You aren't working hard for today, are you? No. You are putting in the blood, sweat and tears to see that "SOMEDAY!" moment.
The problem with this is that this constant working towards the future can be very draining. Right now, I am trying to figure out how to grown my business, while completing my four-year degree, while raising four children, while trying to not drive my boyfriend completely insane. So, I lose steam often. I get inspired. I push myself to unforeseen limits. Then I flatline. You maybe living with some version of this chaos so here is what I am trying out:
- Strengthen your spiritual life. I didn't say religion. I said spiritual. Your relationship with your creator and sustainer is crucial. When you are feeling all over the place, you need a safe, stable place to land.
- Drop something. So, I suffer from holding-on-to-ideas-that-I-had-years-ago syndrome. If something was going to come from them. then it would have happened already. Plus, I believe in universal boomerangs! Let it go. If it was truly meant to be, it will come back to you at a more appropriate time and you will be ready for it.
- Pick something up. You know that thing, that you have been wanting to do. It may not be that this is not the right time. It may be that you have some hang-up about it. You most need to get in touch with your feelings around "the thing". This mission was like that for me. I thought "Who am I to help others figure shit out when I can barely figure shit out on my own?" Easy, I am being led by some strange hand that is pulling me and pushing me at the same time. What I need to pick up to continue on this journey is finding a mentor or coach for myself. Pour into me so that I have plenty to pour out. What do you need to do to start or continue on your journey?
