In the last few months I have really been doing a lot of self assessment, reflection and working really hard on key aspects of my health, business and life.
I needed to.
I am a workaholic and somewhat completely obsessive. I admit it and in many ways I would not have it any other way.
That is just how it rolls.
That is who I am.
I have started doing some things I should have been doing along time ago although I admit I am guilty of also simply doing too much.
I started to ask why? What for?
I am guilty of taking too much on at the expense of my own sanity and health. I now recognise this although it won’t hinder my ambitious attitude.
I have found the last few years very challenging, tiring and stressful although I am very grateful for where I find myself.
Some days you just need to stop and take a break ✋! Something I am not good at.
I reflect and think everything is ok and I should be proud of what I have achieved and then it got me thinking about what I am not doing or what I am missing out on.
The ‘what ifs’!
I started to acknowledge the sacrifices I have made and I started to realise that there are some things I need to improve on. Add things to my life.
I am sure we can all agree that it is not always easy to find the answers we need when we need them most. Sometimes life just passes us by, we realise we are not where we need to be and/or we are feeling consumed and some what smothered by the stresses of life.
This is not healthy. The system has a lot to answer for really. Maybe that is what we need to change?!
I feel blessed that I have amazing people around me and I am doing what I love and enjoy.
I suppose my message here is to make sure you do what you need to do for you. You are important. Chase those grand ideas and go and do them however just remember there is more to life than just paying the bills and working stupid amounts of hours just to having shiny things.
Seek to contribute rather than consume.
Good food, healthy environments, better company, experiences and special moments are what we take with us.
I want more of those.
Grab them when you see them.
