Do you ever look again at how and while you began doing one thing that you just love? Was this a alternative – after some lengthy pondering – or did you develop into this naturally? Whether or not it’s in sports activities, work, studying, portray, gaming, planning high quality time, studying a brand new language. Creating a brand new talent or bettering the abilities you have already got? YOU NAME IT!
For me…. doing one thing that I really like didn’t come naturally! I needed to exit and search for it, as a result of one thing simply felt off and I wanted to do one thing that solely concerned being with me and studying extra about myself.
Perhaps the truth that it would take solely 119 days earlier than 2021 ends and Christmass is across the nook makes me admire the previous, cherish the now and embrace the longer term.
I’m simply getting used to the loopy feeling of this yr and reviewing if I met up with the issues I took upon myself to do. Extra about that later.
On the similar time these (un)pleasant Google reminders present me photos round this time final yr, two,3 and even 5 years again. And my oh my……I’d lie if I let you know that rather a lot has modified or that every part stayed the identical.
Most of the clothes I’m sporting in these photos; I can’t even let you know the place they’re. It’s not that I misplaced them…it’s largely as a result of they don’t match anymore or as a result of
I’m onerously leaving the home to decorate up. All through this yr materialism and wanting extra has gotten one other which means to it. Don’t get me mistaken: I nonetheless love and prefer to buy issues to please my soul, eyes and typically take care of a void that I attempt to fill.
As a result of if I’m sincere: I don’t want something that’s on the market on the market. It’s a privilege to have the ability to achieve this and it’s much more satisfying to not purchase one thing, as a result of it doesn’t add worth to me or how I really feel in the long term.
By no means, form or kind, I’m something close to to turning into a minimalist….though the view of an (virtually) empty house or simply beginning over with a clear slate is tempting. Then again, the power it takes of eliminating all of the issues I amassed in these 25+ years…….is overwhelming. And that’s why issues keep the identical, and I’m working in my consolation zone.
When it comes right down to powerlifting,,,,I’m studying that much less is extra and that sparks my curiosity in being extra intentional with what’s already there.
A real lesson that I’m slowly however absolutely am incorporating in my non-lifting actions.
Please be at liberty to remark or share when you can relate to something I discussed. I’m curious to understand how you view 2021 and have been taking your self by means of this yr and into the following one.
Till the following one..
