Stay in your own lane‼️ Something I’ve been painfully reminded of a lot recently. Nobody can run more than one race at a time, so why is it that we try & live more than one life at a time?! 🤷🏻♀️ I’m not talking about multitasking, we all need to take on multiple roles daily. What i’m talking about is comparing your very unique life, looks, personality & talents, & comparing it to another who is as equally unique in a completely different way. It happens to the best of us. The grass always looks greener on the other side. But have you stopped to look at how green your own grass is?? It’s so normal these days with social media to have others highlight reels popping up in front of us constantly. Creating the illusion that what we are and what we have isn’t good enough. Water your own grass! Trying to walk in someone else’s shoes is exhausting and will give you blisters.
Do YOU and do YOU WELL!! It’s the only way you will ever find inner peace. Anything else will lead to frustration, envy & bitterness. You have a whole lane to yourself. Make the most of it xx
Does anyone else just sometimes hit a super anxious week? Like, waking up feeling like you want to throw up, I’m-gonna-end-up-living-in-the-park-because-I’m-sure-work-will-dry-up, remind yourself to do deep breathing as you ride the metro kind of anxiety? Cuz I certainly have, as I get ready to go to Colombia for the summer to be completely immersed in Spanish studies, finish a business book I’m writing, take some time to strip away my usual distractions and, y’know, LAUNCH INTO THE NEXT STAGE OF MY LIFE (*hyperventilates a bit*).
I am convinced to my core that this is the path into the next chapter of my life, and it’s exciting and empowered and All Of The Memes About Kicking Ass etc. But it’s also overwhelming and unknown and risky and uncomfortable and is revealing the shadow work still to be done. (Turns out you’re never done with it.)
If you’ve been in my classes over the past couple of weeks, you might have picked up on a theme I touch on regularly dialled up a bit more - ‘observe but don’t react to the discomfort.’ So a reminder from me to me: these are just feelings. They will pass. Things will change. The Universe has your back (and so do a whole lot of incredible people). Trust. And breathe. And maybe consider doing more boxing workouts for a bit...
https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/jun/25/rare-bacterial-infection-essex-invasive-group-a-streptococcus. I haven't seen this on mainstream news, now you would think with an ageing generation that this information should be available to the vulnerable. 12 people in towns in Essex have contracted a bug that if it gets into the bloodstream can kill. I am watching the news and nothing is talked about this. If you have an elderly relative in Essex, please be vigilant please, 32 more are affected. #unethicalnews#unethicaltosay#essex#killerbug#vulnerable#oldagepensionersdie.
