I’ve had long spans of time in my life where I felt as though I was not contributing to my own life or my family. I had ways of hiding out – not taking initiative to make plans with friends because the thought of someone asking me about my life was TERRIFYING. I felt like I had nothing interesting to say. I felt this fear even with my closest girlfriends!
Or, I would judge what other people were up to in the world because I compared myself to them! Everyone on my social media feed had impeccable lives – they were perfect-family-havin’, six-figure-makin’, green-juice drinkin’ goddesses that meditated for hours a day.
And although I was taking action in my life, I did not feel like I was “doing enough.”
Oh, that “not enough” feeling.
Yep, that yucky feeling would fuel my desire to overcompensate. Then I would become a crazy overachiever! I was in constant action, taking on projects, exercising constantly, working early and late. That didn’t feel great, either!
Taking small steps to livin’ a big life has been key.
I have experienced times where I feel directionless, but I’ve found that taking action sparks even more action.
