Lots of New Year resolution chats happening this time of year and before the anxiety of wtf shall I resolve to do and an epic long list appears before you I just wanted to drop this thought which is – it’s ok to resolve to do less. Doing less and simplifying things doesn’t make you any less. In fact, if anything, just doing a few less things but doing those chosen things with INTENTION will mean you are doing more – because of the QUALITY of your attention to it. I scaled back on SO MUCH in 2019 and I won’t lie at first it totally fkd with my ego. My ego told me
I wasn’t doing enough, and because I wasn’t doing enough I would fail and not be the person I “thought” I should be, but I did my best to ignore that ugly voice, persevered, simplified and honestly have never felt such fulfilment because now I do fewer things, but those things I focus on I do with all of my attention and heart. My family, friends, work and my physical, emotional and mental health have all felt the benefits of this process. So before you sit and write a hella long list of resolutions, first reflect, simplify and look at all the GREAT THINGS YOU ALREADY HAVE, and how you can act on them with greater intention and focus in 2020.
