Are you Always Busy!?!

This might be a tough pill to swallow, but it’s important for you to know.

And I’m all about illuminating some serious truths for you.

If you are someone that thrives on being busy every moment of every day, you might want to set aside everything you’re doing right now and listen in close.

Is it possible that you have learned that your worthiness is tied directly to your productivity?

Maybe you learned from your earliest care givers that you should NEVER have idle hands, that you should always be working.

And, while that may have been something programmed into your brain, do you actually consider that to be the truth? Is it your truth?

Is this a value you still hold near and dear to your heart? Or is this subconscious programming that was once installed and never been updated?

Is your mind blown yet?!?!?

Up until now, you might have made the connection that your overall worth is associated to how hard you were working on any given day.

Nothing could be further from the truth, if anything, being busy all the time isn’t giving you the space necessary to even consider how worthy you already ARE!

Do-ing and busyness are actually completely separate from enoughness.

Even if you don’t believe it now, doesn’t make it any less true.

You are not more or less worthy based on what you accomplished today.

You are more than just a checklist waiting to be completed.

It might take your brain a moment to get caught up here, it’s likely reading this and flooding your mind with thoughts like:

  • “How am I enough if I haven’t even completed my passion project I started last year?”
  • “How am I worthy if I slept in today until 7:45AM and missed my yoga class?”
  • “I watched 3 hours of Netflix tonight, I wasn’t even productive, how you I possibly be considered successful?”

Any of these sounding familiar?

Trust me, I am right there with you. Even after doing heaps of internal work these thoughts often try and fight there way in….

And you know what, it feels sucky and icky when it happens.

It doesn’t feel good when you start talking to yourself in this way but that cycle can be so hard to break….especially when you’re dealing with years of conditioning.

All of which has told you productivity = worth.

That cycle CAN be broken, it requires cultivating a practice of self-compassion, self-love, self-forgiveness and, above else, a dedication to celebrating your wins, no matter how small!

Your Challenge!

Here is your challenge for the next few days, it involves a bit of journaling.

Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be pages, it can be one simple sentence.

I want you to write the following statement at that top of a piece of paper:

“I’m proud of myself today, because…”

Keep it simple, it doesn’t have to be some giant WIN for the day, even the small stuff deserves celebration.

Even if it feels like there is nothing to be proud of I want you to dig a bit deeper, there is always something.
