It takes a huge effort to free yourself from learned patterns that don’t serve you. To find balance between what you’re used to and how you should now do.
You can’t magically change your ways and who you are, however, with time and effort you can unlearn some of your ways of thinking, ways of reacting and ways if using your time. Don’t cling on certain patterns just because you spend a lot of time doing and learning them.
“Don’t cling on certain patterns just because you spend a lot of time doing and learning them.”
The most important patterns for me, that I’ve had to now unlearn, is related to work. My relation towards work. I’ve now dedicated two months for the process of being able to NOT to think only about work, to NOT constantly be stressed about work and to NOT only think of getting things done. I’ve been so good at putting pressure on myself for too long and so it has taken all of me to really invest on unlearning these patterns.
So where am I now with myself and with this process?
I’m in a peaceful place where I don’t feel the slightest of pressure, none of stress, and don’t even talk about work most of days. To me, this is the best feeling and outcome I could have ever imagined. And with that being said, I think I could be ready to start working more soon which kinda excites me!
Me, I’m always gonna respect those who work hard. It’s build in me. For that reason, I know I’m always gonna work hard too. But I’m also always in the corner of truth. And the truth, the reality is, that there can be a very fine line between being determined and excited about work versus feeling the need to over achieve and forgetting to be gracious to yourself.
I hope all of you hard workers, go getters, dreamers and over achievers, will try and learn about balance, in everything you do. Love the shit outta yourself so you’ll find it easier to be gentle on yourself while chasing the dream.
