‘Be happy with what you have, whilst working on what you want’. One on my fav quotes from Helen Keller. Everyone wants to rush into creating a better future…but if you spend too much time doing this…you’ll always be feeling like your working towards a better life. It feels like…striving. Striving sucks!
Stop…and think of 5 things that you are proud of in your life right now. I’ll go first…
1. The purchase of my first house
2. A healthy body
3. A job I love
4. Photo that reminds me of running the New York Marathon
5. Amazing friends
Seriously, you should do this. Took me 1 minute. I feel so much better and I can now create from a much better place. I no longer feel like I’m striving. I feel content and energised about moving forward.
