EXCUSES And Ridiculous Embarrassing Resistance!!
I usually formally go downstairs set up my laptop and start to enter into my journal.
This could have been why I haven’t done it in a week.
Too much of a formal process.
I’m in bed right now writing on my notepad in between snoozing.
Major self-care this week I haven’t done the best at. This usually has been massages/baths/ sleeping enough… I can feel the toll on my productivity without these things.
Usually, I’m very productive and when I have extra time I don’t mind at all doing extra work to promote my content or make programs who help people find me. This week I haven’t taken care of me enough.
Self-care is a very important part of being a business owner/visionary!!
My creative mind is closed when I don’t have the mental energy to invest in myself.
I have a made a vow over the weekend working with my mentor to take a full day off once per week- that will be my Sunday.
I realize how important it is to RECHARGE. What this is also teaching me is I need bots to text for me or I can’t do this. I only have so much time, so it’s important to use it to make money but also to recharge. (If you can do this message me)!!
It took me a few days to finally Force myself into getting enough rest the once I finally did it last night I have no problem getting up and journaling today! This bitch is back!
And you know what’s funny, is that when something needs to happen it continues to show up in your life!
I was able to meet with someone last night with no agenda, and a conversation turned into discussing how it is important to have rest. She is a very firm believer of God and very God-fearing so she put my thoughts into a different context yet with the same message… that the Lord had put the Sabbath as a day of rest for all people to be able to recharge and make their bodies and minds ready for the week. People have had to work since the dawn of time, so this thought that I have is nothing new.
I have had a lot of resistance writing in my blog and journaling in the morning because I have been so tired, and as I catch up on sleep the same topic keeps popping up reminding me that I can’t keep blowing off the things that are going to make me a better person and have a better quality of life!
Having the life that you want takes work. It’s not given to you have to earn it. When I’m feeling tired I feel lazy and make excuses so obviously I need to fix a certain part of this equation to continue onto my best life that I want.
Can you think of a time or a consistent feeling/ situation in your week which causes you to feel resistance to the thing you know you need to do to create a better life?
Typically when these pop up in peoples lives they use them to make excuses as to why they don’t achieve the short-term and long-term goals that they set for themselves.
The actual situations are not the dealbreaker it’s the fact that you’re choosing to not deal with the problems that are causing the resistance.
I had to buckle up and think deeply about why I’m not getting my journaling done. I realized it was due to the fact that when I don’t sleep enough, I don’t have the energy to be creative and to kick ass.
It took me a few days to realize this, and obviously, something has to change.
You’re not alone in your journey, you don’t have to fight these challenges alone.. I reached out to my group of elite efficient family members for solutions on how to sleep faster and how to sleep longer. I ended up having a couple members of the group reach out to me and remind me to go to bed at a certain time. I also made reminders in my phone and alerts to Force me to remember that my bedtime is coming up, and it was time to start winding down and shutting things off.
Without other people’s support, I wouldn’t be headed in the direction I am. So don’t be afraid to reach out to other people for accountability because it really does make a difference.
If you want to achieve your goals it’s always helpful to have people around you who want to see you succeed. If you are in need of this like I was, and I have a something that will help you.
