I, myself, am trying to write this post and had to check in with how I am feeling. I am tired, unfocused, and have a zillion things going on right now that keeps me from being that ideal version of me that I hope to show up in the world as. And with that, cue the dark cloud over my head asking questions I don’t have the answers to.

How am I going to get to where I want to be?
Why can’t I find the energy to do this?

Who, what where when, why… you imagine the question, and then it pops into your head and begins to bring you down.

With an emphasis on changing the self-talk that is brewing I told myself, “Dude, it’s more than okay you feel this way. You have a lot going on, and it’s stressful.”

We hope for someone else to swoop in and help pick us up off the ground, but we can be that voice we need to hear. We have the most information, the best perspective, the insider knowledge into what is going on for us, and when you put it all together, doesn’t it make sense?

Doesn’t it make sense you’re feeling stressed out?
Doesn’t it make sense you are tired?
Doesn’t it make sense you are uncertain?

We go through tough things that can bog us down and our tendency is to race to fix it. That’s awesome if you can, but if you can’t then getting familiar with the feeling and how it’s affecting you brings about some relief.
