So I'm sitting here not wanting to do 'work'. I'm sure on this Monday, after day light savings time you can feel what I'm feeling. It's raining outside and we are potty training our 2 year old. I love me some outside time, so feeling this Monday even more! And as I'm sitting here (let's be clear, I ate a box of mac n'cheese first, a fresh hot cup of coffee, and a 30-min scroll sesh on social media ... did I mention I'm feeling lazy?), then it occurred to me - WHY AM I AVOIDING THIS?
So ... WHY . AM . I . AVOIDING . WORKING? Growing my business, helping people, helping our family, and helping my soul. I realized I am nervous. Nervous because the small steps over the past while have been slowly growing and setting me up for some bigger growth. It hit me hard. Honestly, I have been so excited doing these little tasks for growth I hadn't even noticed I'm almost there! I'm about to launch a small e-book. I'm about to launch a coaching program. I'm about to help more people and MY FAMILY. In big ways. And it's scary. So of course, why not just stop and halt all that forward momentum. NOPE! Not today self-lack. Not today poor self-talk. Not today fear of success.
Next best thing, talk to you about it. I want to be a fairly open book with y'all. I want you to see that I go through it too. I have awful days. Days where I just don't want to work. I have days where, yup I'm still in my pj's at 2:49pm. You are not alone!!
With that, I'm going to ALLOW myself to get some quality work done for a moment. I hope you realize it's ok to have a moment, feel it, and move forward. And know I'm highfiving myself for my next work moment knowing it's leading to bigger things!
