I am someone that loves doing A LOT of different things. I am always on the go, looking for something exciting, and at times, it gets the best of me.
Just to give you an example of what I have already put on my plate: I run an online marketing business, teach yoga full time, in the last month just completed a spin and barre training (added some more classes), take photography weekly for clients, and am attempting to train for a half and full marathon, all while traveling every month. I just typed out that sentence and realize how crazy I am.
Does anyone else feel like they are running on adrenaline every day, trying to get to the next thing, and then they come home and crash? I'm with you completely. It's not until this past week that instead of pushing past the fatigue, I decided that I had to start staying NO.
Turns out my focus on work was all "yes yes yes." Saying no to things- letting yoga classes go, not doing everything at once- has been a change I have started to make this week and so far I feel this HUGE wave of relief.
"It's impossible to do everything and be good at it."
That has vibrated so true for me this past week. While yes, maybe I'm "good" and even "really good" at the things that I do (Self love, baby!) I am not a superhuman that can do it all and feel healthy, effective, connected, and REAL. If I am a business owner running myself down how can I expect my employees to take care of themselves?
It's vulnerable and scary to let go of things I love, but that doesn't mean it's out of my life. My focus has changed and shifted and I'm coming to peace with that. I'm excited about it! My goal this week is to clear space and do so with intention.
Are you with me?! Say yes to you.
