Let things come easy.
It has taken me a long time to return to the state of letting things come easy. It took a good 6+ years. It took healing all the wounds from toxic relationships, environments, and jobs. These environments always made me feel like I wasn’t doing enough, or I wasn’t enough, or I just plain ol’ sucked. But those were straight lies. I’m not saying I’m perfect, I definitely don’t give 100% everyday but we aren’t supposed to!!! My lord! Burn out is not worth giving 100% every single day. Burn out is literally a killer. Don’t be a killer, pace yourself.
It’s ok that things come easy.
One change that has made things come easy was chasing my passion and my dreams no matter. What it took was developing healthy daily habits that support my long-term goals. It was hard at first especially because my energy was so low so writing everyday was a huge chore. It’s still a chore and it takes work and intention (yes, even when my page is riddled with typos) but it’s something that in the long run will get me where I’m going.
I want to close with by saying, it’s ok to show up with your discipline and your boundaries and your daily investments with faith in the idea that things can and will come easy. It’s ok to sleep and wake up with the acceptance that things can and will come easy. Whether they come easy where you are, or somewhere else that you will be, your daily investments, especially internal and spiritual, will not be wasted!!
It’s never a waste of time or money to invest in yourself, no matter the source. True wealth begins inwards and emits its light outward into everything else, including the people you surround yourself with.will.i.am
