Some days are harder than others, some days I’m exhausted, all I want to do is curl up in bed all day long and others I wake up excited & grateful for the day and inspired to create. .
How do we know the difference between being burnt out or just giving up? .
A lot of burn out is mainly in our own minds, wake up and immediately what’s the first thought? ‘I don’t want to do this, I’m tired, I’m over this’ and so goes the day staying in that same mental attitude. Rather than remembering your why of why you are aligned with the things you do each day and live each day.
“Burn out is not caused by working to much, it’s caused by the fuel you’re using to work- if that fuel is fear, inadequacy, greed, scarcity- you will feel worn down” @lifecoachschool .
I tend to give up on things a lot- I have tons of creative ideas that come to me each day, and I start them and then stop- not moving past some obstacle whether a mental or material one, and I stop. Doubt, fear, excuses, stress creeps in and I give up which turns into this cycle where I then put myself down for failing. Starting & stopping like an endless cycle.
And since I have started to talk to myself differently, to know that these blocks/discomfort is just a habit in my mind that I need to think outside my own brain, I am able to develop new habits + awareness in myself.
I’m not saying it’s not a difficult path- and I do slide off every now and then and let my monkey mind take over by going into that overthinking spiral.
But slowly and gradually I am growing aware of these things, reminding myself of how each day I am living my purpose, my why and looking at each day through abundance.
Thank you, @facadesplus for the beautiful shots of this project. Head to their post to see more photos. ・・・
The United States Olympic and Paralympic Museum, located in the southwest corner of downtown Colorado Springs, Colorado, is being constructed as a 60,000-square-foot curatorial and event facility celebrating American Olympians. The project, designed by New York’s Diller Scofidio + Renfro, with architect-of-record Anderson Mason Dale, was inspired by the movement of athletes; the massing propels upward with shingled anodized aluminum panels and visually rests on a podium of glass curtainwall.
