What’s up guys?!
I know I ‘ve been gone for about a week, but I’m back with the jump off!
There’s been a lot going on, but fortunately it’s all been good…well for the most part.
I don’t know y’all…
It’s been around 5 months since I’ve consciously started this journey of self improvement, growth, and love.
The shit is hard.
It’s a process.
There are set backs, and when those set backs come it can leave you feeling like it’s all falling apart.
Like you’re falling apart…
Now, the simple fact that I’m sitting here talking about this issue, and you’re reading this clearly tells us that we’re not falling apart, because we’ve got the most important part of self growth down.
Noticing the things that need improvement.
So at least we’ve got that part down.
And that’s great, but not enough.
You want to know the biggest problem I’ve had with this whole journey?
It’s not happening fast enough!
I started out thinking, if I focused on myself for about 3 months I should be good.
I should have it all together.
How crazy is that?
How absolutely insane of me to think I could completely change old habits, thought patterns, and beliefs in 3 months?!
So I started off tripping.
Now of course 5 months in, I obviously know that’s not the case.
But I still find myself wanting to see great change, in a short amount of time.
It’s probably nearly impossible to actually see how much you’ve grown on your own.
I’ve found true growth comes from becoming more knowledgeable about things.
The change will come naturally, and things that happen naturally we have the tendency to ignore.
But it’s happening.
I’ve just learned to stop looking for the signs of my growth, and just keep tabs on it by the way I feel.
It keeps the stress down, and it shifts your focus to what really matters…
How you feel.
So what am I trying to say?
Basically, we can’t worry about the pace at which we’re growing, we’ve just got to focus on feeling good, and know it’s happening.
