In the past I would go crazy about achieving my goals I would work extra hard but also spend hours worrying if they would actually come true!
I would write all these wonderful resolutions only to fear that I may not do enough to actually accomplish them. I would go bananas about when I get where I want to be with my life worrying that what if I don’t have enough time, money or know people that can help me!
There is this song that I listen to way too much in my teens and it came true for me in my twenties. In loose translation it says: “People wander with a backpack of smiles, with a ballast of sadness and breath. And they do not want to rest even for a moment because they are so afraid that something will pass them by!”. I lived by that for way too long!
While on maternity leave I realised that I was rushing with everything and actually never gave myself time to relax and enjoy what I was doing. I spend my days working a lot but not seeing many results. Then when Gabriel was born I needed to slow down and that caused some reflection and lots of positive changes in my life!
Now in my thirties I enjoy life moment by moment and as they come!
They say “live in the now” and I never know what does it actually mean until recently. Living in the now for me means being grateful for little moments of happiness and the more I’m focused on these moments the more moments like that I have to experience.
I encourage you to practice living in the now 🙂
Until the next time,
