Stick it, Post Its.
This morning I did something spectacular.
I threw away some unreasonable expectations I had of myself. Some mental clutter. Some .0002 oz weights.
For years, I have had perfectly straight rows of turquoise post it notes taped to the wall behind my computer monitor. On them I wrote “steps” that I thought would take me in the direction I wanted to go. As I was cleaning my desk this morning, I realized some were more paralyzing than motivating. Others were no longer relevant. Still others made me feel like a failure. It’s hard to move forward when you feel overwhelmed and confused. So one by one, I peeled them from the wall.
Then I crumbled them into a ball…
…and put them in the trash.
I’m not throwing away my goals. If you have read my blog for any amount of time you know I’m a very goal oriented person. I will continue to set and reach goals, oh yes I will, but I at the same time I am choosing to allow myself the freedom to “just be”. I’m giving myself more room to breath. More room to play. More room to love. I’m re-prioritizing. I’m setting new goals. I’m wiping the droplets off of the bathroom mirror. I’m letting go of unreasonable expectations and embracing new possibilities. I’m moving forward into territories that are a little less charted and I’m excited.
Hugs and High Fives,
