Slowing Down to Move Faster

Slowing Down to Move Faster

Something I’ve worked on getting better at is slowing down so I can get more done in a day. I wake up every day with a million things in my mind that I’d like to accomplish so naturally the minute my eyes open I jolt myself into β€œGo Mode” and all of a sudden half my day is gone into the abyss of chaos and I get none of it done. 

Confessions of an ex-People Pleaser

Confessions of an ex-People Pleaser

I debated writing this on and off, but I realized this may be a call for freedom to some of you. For a long time I had this horrendous belief that being a good person and doing good meant that I needed to please other people in order to do that. That meant that if someone had a request or a need, I would fill it. I became the go-to girl for everything. 

Disclaimer: pleasing people is okay in moderation. Here’s what’s not okay: losing yourself and your needs in the middle of the chaos of being everything to everyone else. Not cool.

So throughout the process of becoming β€œperfect” to everyone else, I was missing out on things I enjoyed. I missed being myself and acting like myself without this made up mind game that I played with myself of being perfect all the time and doing and saying the right things.
