So you might have noticed a theme running through our posts this week.
We each found ourselves in that place where the emotions are overwhelming, asking, "How did I get here...again?"
In life, it's easy to get on a high when we've learned something new, overcome some obstacle, or finally broken open. We think we'll never go back. It'll never get messy again. We'll never overcommit, sell out, feel worthless, overspend, overeat, or fall off the bandwagon. How could we—so armed with experience's wisdom?
It is the same way the dresser gets messy...
Change and receipts.
Chargers and headphones.
Glasses of water.
As we commiserated in the safety of our weekly FaceTime call, it was clear. We don't know how we got here. Or why. And it doesn't even matter. It's not worth beating ourselves up. The fact is we're here, and it's not where we want to be. This is not who we are.
We did a little exercise that honestly helped. It's nothing profound you guys. It's literally the equivalent to throwing away old receipts and shuffling the spare change into the coin jar. A little clean-out exercise for the space within.
We've created a workbook to use when we find ourselves back in this place again, as we undoubtedly will. We're sharing it with all of you, hoping it helps if you're there. If you're stressed, worried, feeling behind, or guilty…if you're wondering whether to say yes or no, this is for you. We hope when you get through the layers of crap, clarity is what's left. You'll know your answer, you'll remember you are not the:
You have your answer. You know what to do. It's right. And it's enough.
Just to get good and comfy down in the trenches with you guys, we've linked up our own completed workbooks, as well as a blank one for you to download for free and play with if you're so inclined.
