For so long, I’ve been go, go, go. It’s how I survived. I had to work full-time while studying full-time. That was my life for 10+ years so it’s my normal to be constantly busy but here’s the thing…
I don’t want to be this busy anymore. I don’t want to have long to-do lists. I don’t want to push and push every day. I don’t want to be running around like crazy. I don’t want to have a full calendar.
I want more white space. I want more peace. I want more empty lists. I want to do the work I love and spend time with the people I love.
I recently changed my work schedule to be at home more often and gave a lot more tasks to my assistant, and now I have an abundance of time and white space.
Honestly, it’s uncomfortable. I’ve never not been busy. I’m filling some of my time with things I’ve let slip over the last year or I’m simply allowing myself to sit outside in the sun with a cup of bone broth and simply feel the sun. Eventually, I’ll catch up on everything and have nothing to do and that scares me.
So, I’m trying to learn how to do nothing. It’s a work in progress and I’m breaking a lot of habits, healing childhood trauma and feeling more comfortable with doing nothing every day that passes.
