In the last month alone I’ve gone through what feels like perhaps the darkest night of my “dark night of the soul” and ya know what? I’m smiling about it.
No, I’m not crazy (well, maybe a tad, but the best ones are right?) I’m just learning how to fully appreciate the times in my life that stretched, pulled, poked, prodded, and what felt like tortured me.
When life throws a million tasks at us all at once, it’s easy to feel like we’re going to lose it, or that we should give up on certain things and focus more on others due to “lack of time”. The thing is… we have time for the things we make time for; that’s how it works!
I often felt on certain days that there was no way I would ever get everything I needed to do completed on time. I wasn’t happy with some things and kept distracting myself and starting 10 things at once (my usual m.o.), but ultimately what helped me was walking away from it all together for a couple of days. Oftentimes we can become so immersed in one thing, in one project or hobby that we can’t see that we are blocking our own creative flow.
On days I started feeling doubt creep in and other low vibrational energies where my ego wanted to beat up on me, I just stepped away from it for a bit. I remembered why I was doing all of this soul-searching and shadow work…(because I freaking LOVE to learn and have a message to share with the world that can only be communicated through authentic experience!) and suddenly I could feel my heart reopen wide again. Being in your heart-space is vital to being able to t only function in, but also proactively navigate through chaotic situations in your life.
I also suggest avoiding worry! I know, easier said than done, right? But think for a moment what the act of worrying actually is doing. You are putting energy into imagining horrible, negative scenarios in your mind of what COULD possibly happen.
