I decided to tackle this topic mostly because not only have I been experiencing this more lately, but also just about everyone I know.
Over the past few years, a lot of us have changed. Some of us have really been focused on how to really be an authentic version of ourselves and to honor that 100 % of the time.
I've seen this with myself, my clients, and my friends.
I believe the climate of the world around us really has awakened us, made us hop off the hamster wheel of life, and paused for a moment. I mean, we were kinda forced to. Which I believe was a good thing!
The question that has come up is, what the heck am I doing? Why am I doing it? How does this serve me? This is nuts!
A Lot of us have discovered that we are doing things that are not true to us at our deepest level, not aligned with our values at all.
A lot of us spend almost all of our time, our most valuable asset, doing things that don’t light us up inside or...
We all have those times in our lives when we feel stuck, stagnant, and uninspired.
You could feel a bit lost and not know how to move forward. All you do know for sure is you don’t want to stay where you’re at right now.
It could be your home situation, a relationship, your job, or your business. It can be all of the above!
I can relate to this. I think a good part of the reason this happens is that we get too busy doing instead of just being. We get busy. Bust taking care of everything for everyone.
This is definitely more common for women just because of social expectations and traditions.
Some women take care of the home, the kids, their significant other, their parents, all outside appointments, planning family gatherings, etc..
They also work full time while doing this and don’t forget we need to look a certain way, be a certain way and for crying out loud we should be grateful.
Now I’m not saying these pressures don't sometimes haunt men but...
