Letting go is the path to freedom.
I have been a bit quiet lately. On social, in person & in life. I have been soaking up the moments with my family and my own soul care routine. I have been focused on writing my book and creating. I have been doing what I teach on social media and my clients and walking the walk I talk. And it feels good.
I don’t know if you can relate, but sometimes I just have to shut down. I have to log off. I have to live my life OFF of social media and not document every.single.thing. Which is tough, because, after all, my businesses have been built & run via social media.
But my gosh it can be exhausting. And I miss the days of connection. Of being with my family and friends in PERSON and living without our phones. So I have been focused on doing just that.
I started my daily meditation and journaling practice again last week, went to CrossFit and I watched Netflix this weekend. I drank my green smoothies last week and ate what I wanted this weekend. I soaked up the sun and the moments with my family and left my phone in my bag except to snap a few photos. #balanceandharmony And you know what? I feel REFRESHED. FREE. I let go of the expectations of being on social media all weekend just to check in, document, scroll the feed, etc. because I didn’t want to. Because it didn’t FEEL good.
Here’s what I know.
When society tells you you “should” do this or that or be or have… know that it’s NOT truth. Only you & your higher power can provide that answer. Tune in.
And in my case, tune out. So you CAN tune in.
And then SHOW UP as YOU. All YOU. Not who you think you should be. It’s not what the world needs. And it sure as hell isn’t what you need.
That’s how I feel right now. I don’t want to do things the way we are “supposed” to. I simply want to be the best HUMAN I can be. And how I can do that … is to be ME. And show the world ME.
Repeat after me:
- I have nothing to prove to anyone.
- Other people’s expectations have nothing to do with me. But I will respect them if they share them with me.
- I honor my boundaries and intuition about every situation.
- I give myself permission to shut off social / other distractions and just BE.
- No one expects me to be perfect, including me.
- I am human.
