I don’t know why, but I can’t seem to get around to blogging unless it’s late at night. Maybe because it’s the quietest and for some unknown reason, you become extremely popular when it’s time to do something mentally productive. Like, let me be great! lol
Anyhow, today I was in the chaotic trance of analysis paralysis that soon swayed into the direction of my career. The direction. Throughout the past 6 to 7 months my eyes have opened to so much, and I don’t think that I would’ve been able to experience and learn those things had I not quit my well-paying job back in February.
I feel like I’m right in between where I am and where I desire to be. It’s all of difficult, inspiring, frustrating, self motivating, and mentally challenging all at once. It’s like reaching for an apple on the highest branch of the best tree out the bunch. You know that apple is yours, and that you’re fully capable of reaching it, but you can’t quite reach it just yet. Well, that’s how I feel.
As I went back and forth through optimism and pessimism I kept feeding myself the statement that’s says to trust the process. On a normal day that would’ve fueled me but, it wasn’t working for me today. These are the times that help me understand the moments when people don’t want to be fed inspirational quotes or messages.
Sometimes throughout the confusion and stressful times we just want to talk through our situation. To get the frustrations out and release whatever emotions that needs to be released.
With this post I want to say that it’s okay. It’s okay to get angry and upset. Let it out! It’s healthy.
Don’t let my positive talk, or other motivational messages fool you into believing that it’s normal or achievable to be positive all the time. It’s a load of you know what. It’s okay to have feelings. It’s okay to be upset, angry, pissed off, and be ready to slap somebody – just don’t actually do it. lol
My regime is simple. I allow myself to be angry, upset, frustrated, disappointed, sad etc for whatever reason. However, once I’ve shelled and expressed all that needs to be expressed, I LET IT GO. I throw it in the trash, lock it up, bury the hatchet, and move on. Because it takes too much dog on energy to be going over something that has already happened.
- LET IT GO
In the words of Florence and the Machine, “Shake it off,” and keep on moving!
It’s officially Hump day!
