How many times have you listened to the guidance of others, leading you far away from your path? People think they have your best interest in mind, but if you are living everyone else’s life but your own, I can tell you now that you will be very unhappy. But sometimes it takes great strength and resolve to stick to your own inner wisdom, and not to get pulled hither and yon off track. So I ask you today as we move into Spring in the Northern Hemisphere, what really lights you up?
Have you been feeling a little nudge to be more in nature, for example, yet have stayed glued to the computer thinking you “have to” finish a project or a task? Yesterday I felt that way. Doing a class which is very interesting, but keeps me studying a lot more than I actually have the bandwidth for. And my body suffers. Then we get whisked into the new week, with ALL of the things of our To-Do lists, scheduling and trying to work everything in.
I don’t know about you, but this is where I start getting lost. I lose my focus and my “North Star”. The week slips away, and I feel like I haven’t even played in the creative sandbox at all. This can be a very painful experience for highly sensitive, creative Entrepreneurs and Thought Leaders. So I ask you, what is really stirring in your soul today, and do you feel like you have the creative time and space to follow that calling? What is one thing you can do to bring you home to yourself, and find that quiet inner voice that you can follow?
Maybe you have to defer till after work, or during a lunch break. but do listen, and allow your soul to shine today. Each day that you listen to YOU first, and not let others, or other seemingly more important tasks get in your way, you are learning to live mindfully. So why not start with a “Mindfulness Monday”?
I can assure you that Tuesday will be much more fun…
