15 Oct Trying to Live in the Moment
A few weeks ago I made the decision to postpone some work projects until after the baby is born. It was a decision that although the right one was instantly accompanied by anxiety – ” How would I cope financially?”, “would I really be able to pick up where I left off?” and a horrible blanket of depression as I realised so much of my self worth is tied up in how much “work” I perceive myself to be doing.
But I stuck to my guns, took some time off social media (total detox and now checking in once a week) and have been really trying to focus on gratitude & living in the moment. It’s ironic because those two things really are the essence of The Joy Project but in my eagerness to share it with others I’d neglected to focus on it in my own life.
None of us knows what the next hour will hold let alone a years time, all we have for sure is now so let’s embrace it and also show ourselves the love we deserve.
