I’m experiencing a new way of being lately: a feeling of NOT being overwhelmed all the time. I felt alarmed about this because I didn’t recognize this feeling at all. In the past I always felt like I didn’t have enough time to do all those things I thought I needed to do. My focus recently has been alignment with my core values and prioritizing everything according to what’s important to me. I have purged, organized, pared down, expanded, and focused so well that all of a sudden I found myself without overwhelm. I know exactly what I want and I am going for it but all the distractions I used to have are no longer there! So I thought I wasn’t doing enough because I had so much extra time – this is an old habit that I became aware of. My girlfriend and fellow coach pointed out to me that this new found space in my life is because of my alignment and because I don’t need to feel overwhelmed to feel like I’m achieving what I want. Phew! What a relief! I’ve had clarity before but always mixed with overwhelm. Now pure clarity feels so amazing!
