I just read this article in “The Certain Way” Ezine and it really made me think about how often we MAKE ourselves work harder, do more, push push push, when we’re feeling tired, overwhelmed, angry, resentful, or just plain worn out. This article sure makes you think about the value of “working more and working harder” when you are already feeling overwhelmed, afraid, desperate, discouraged, etc. It also might invite you to consider certain types of questions like…
- Why am I doing all of this?
- What is my intention in trying to do it all? Am I afraid of losing everything? Am I afraid I’ll have no value if I don’t do it?
I loved this article because it’s designed to help you see the value in being clear emotionally and mentally before you try to “do more, run faster, push harder” to make changes you might feel are necessary in your life. I also thought it was an excellent explanation for those days when you feel you “ran all day” and you still came home thinking, “I’ve been running all day, I’m wiped out, and I feel like I didn’t get anything done!”
I hope you enjoy the article. I know it’s a little long but it’s thought provoking and I think you will find it worth the time. I sure did!
