It’s amazing how much has changed in my life since the beginning of the global retreat from life as we knew it.
Relationships haven ended, many have been challenged and new ones have began.
I feel like I’ve been unplugged from the Matrix of my own fears. Partially, the journey is ongoing.
I’m not even thinking in terms of how much change has occurred. It doesn’t matter.
What matters is that I stay present and pay attention to life in this moment.
Sometimes it wants me to go tenaciously after my goals. Other times it wants me to stop chasing and spend more time being.
I’m struggling with the latter but I’ll find my way.
We’ve been acculturated to place our worth on the altar of productivity. So much that many lose a sense of who they are if they aren’t “delivering” in some way.
The need to measure up by showing how much you can do is a habit that dies hard.
You owe it to yourself to break free of that web before it consumes you.
