So I had hoped this week would be easy but the universe has other ideas and it turns out those ideas were to put a bunch of new work on my plate. Because of that I missed my regular Monday Motivation post but I could still use a bit of a pep talk, and maybe you could too.
This week I am going to have to put a bit of myself on auto pilot. What I mean by that is I’m going to just have to DO and not THINK so much.
I just have to focus on moving forward more than how I feel about moving forward. It’s kind of a little experiment I am doing about how to work through fear. I have noticed that by not thinking about the fear and just acting has helped me get a lot of things done that I thought I couldn’t do.
Part of me is still afraid, but that part of me no longer gets a say in what I do or do not do.
This week I am also going to try to stop taking so much pride in not caring about things. I am going to do my best to give a damn. Many damns. More damns than anyone!
I started thinking yesterday about how everyone I know, and just about the entire internet, talks so much about how few fucks they give. They act like the ability not too care is a great quality to have. But shouldn’t we all be trying to care a little more. Imagine if everyone in the world just cared a little bit more about something, anything, bigger than themselves.
Be the change you wish to see in the world, right?
And finally this week I give myself permission to just be happy! No matter what anyone else around me is feeling, no matter what else anyone says, I am happy!
Lately people around me have made me feel a bit guilty about being happy. Those people don’t understand how hard I have worked my whole life to get to this point. I do not have to prove anything to them! Those people also don’t understand how fragile my happiness is and I cannot allow them to ruin it.
I will not take on another persons emotions and problems just because it makes them feel better.
I deserve every bit of happiness I have!
Whew! So that’s what I have going on this week. How about you? Let me know in the comments and good luck :)
