I don’t know about you but going through change can be quite an ordeal! Whether it’s internal or external. One of the biggest challenges I’ve juggled with is doing less (Multitasking anyone? 🙋🏻♀️Totally guilty).
I used to fluctuate between doing a lot of work to not wanting to do any work at all. I’ve had days where creativity is bursting, cue minions in my brain. Followed by days where I need to completely disconnect and recover, sleeping not-so beauty.
Before I quit my corporate job, I’d gone through multiple burnouts. Yet even when I was out of that environment, I found myself repeating the same patterns. And here I thought I was over it! What was I not doing right?
That’s why, I was so excited when Melyssa Griffin asked her guest Kate Northup–Bestselling author of Do Less– my question in her latest Limitless Life™ podcast.
Guess what Kate’s response was? It takes as long as it takes
And she’s right. Of course. Like many things, it’s a practice. Doing less doesn’t mean to simply stop doing.
Whatever change you’re embarking on, it takes time to recalibrate. Like finding the proper station in an analog radio. Depends on where you are as much as the station you’re trying to connect to. It’s a dance between shedding old belief systems and adjusting to new thought patterns along the way. And that’s a looooot.
Kate also shared how it’s important to a lot of grace and compassion for ourselves in the process, there will be lessons that come up multiple times. We’ll be looking at them from a higher consciousness each time.
You will revisit the same lessons but at a higher consciousness.
It’s cyclical process, not linear. It will require fortitude. Allowing ourselves the space to grow.
Phew! Doesn’t that feel less daunting? And here I was wondering why I kept revisiting those lessons!
So my dear friend, whether you’re trying to start a new habit, incorporate a daily practice or moving away from an old pattern remember to be gentle with yourself.
