This week’s word has been Ease, and it’s surprising the impact this word has made to my life this week. I decided on ease as I have noticed that I will often make things more difficult for myself without realising and thus feeling more low.
So to contrast this I chose EASE. Choosing the Ease in life where ever possible that it was that I could.
So where did this word leave me?
When I wore shoes that hurt my feet on the school run – I didn’t realise until it was too late, instead of continuing to wear them until I was home and in turn ripping my feet to shreds I took them off.
When my hands were sore in swimming instead of forcing myself to continue I stopped and massaged them and enjoyed the water and floating in the water rather than the continuous, strenuous swimming I will usually do.
When I knew Andy wasn’t popping around instead of stressing about what we would all eat I went to Heron and picked an actually quite yummy microwave meal instead.
I replied to scary emails straight away and dealt with things straight away instead of letting my anxiety get so much that I think didn’t bother answering at all.
I even sent a scary email for a big idea I had just to see where it gets me!
Then I decided how far could I go with this word.. and for a day I did everything within reason (obviously intrusive thoughts suck ass and get ignored) that I thought to do in my head. Literally one of the best days, I had better stats, I made a printable which I love. I made a blog folder with information I have wanted to store for a while. I had a dance off with j. I took some money for the boys to choose a treat from the shop on the way home from school. It was lovely and in doing this I have realised that I need more of this.
I need more of believing in myself and my abilities, I need less of listening to my anxiety and self sabotaging myself. Therefore.. in contrast.
I BELIEVE IN MYSELF, I do everything I can to succeed. I AM A SUCCESS.
It’s funny, the things I did this week that made my life so much nicer are such simple things and yet usually I wouldn’t think twice about them and would struggle on.
My newly picked weeks word is:
