“You have a treasure within you that is infinitely greater than anything the world can offer” -Eckhart Tolle
I have a lot of self-doubt surrounding the contribution I have to give the world.
Unfulfilled at my 9-5, unorganized at home, sometimes, I feel as if I’m just existing. I’m here. Groggily rolling out of bed to go through the motions of the day, waiting for the moment I can crawl back into the bed. All similar experiences as to when I was drinking- just without the hangover!
I want to thrive and share with others my experiences in hopes of encouraging change. How can I encourage change in others, when I can’t even seem to encourage change in myself?
Today, I’m reminding myself: Don’t overlook the small victories. Small victories will snowball into larger victories. Ya’ll remember the list of eight things I wanted to do more consistently, from last month?
2. Get up at 6:00 am to spend 30 minutes alone listening to an audiobook and stretching
3. 15 minutes of yoga (per day)
4. Dropping off at school at 8:00 am
5. Drinking at least 48oz of water (per day)
6. Reading all my work emails
7. Writing down my gratitude(s) each evening
8. 5 minutes of meditation per day
1, 4, 5, and 6: I have been completing consistently.
2: I’ve done more often than not.
7: I’ve done once or twice,
3, 8: I haven’t done.I have made progress.
In February, I wasn’t making a conscious effort to do any of these things.
There is room for improvement.
What are areas in your life where you have noticed improvement since the start of 2022?
