I think deeply about life and sometimes get stuck in my head. I daydream, create goals, and think about what I could do but I don’t take action! I forget to check in with myself and find out on a heart level what I really want to do or be when I grow up. Oh but I’ve already grown up! I have so much I want to do and accomplish in my life. I do let challenges get in my way. Some of my challenges:
- I procrastinate so don’t make time for what’s important to me. I’m distracted by other commitments.
- I lack clarity. I must start by getting a clear vision of what’s most important to me. Perhaps I could create a vision board.
- I lack confidence in my abilities.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that I can’t wait for life to happen, I have to get out there and make it happen. Sometimes, I’m waiting for an opportunity to present itself and I go with it. It’s a self perpetuating problem of waiting to see what’s going to happen. Also, if you don’t plan for your life, not much will happen or get done.
I started on this journey of recreating my life a few years ago after healing from mental illness. I have been taking baby steps because underlying all of my challenges, I’m just a little scared! It’s okay to admit that right now. It’s important to know where you’re at so you can start right there, and everyday is a brand new day to begin something new!
