"Sometimes you don't realize you're actually drowning when you're trying to be everyone else's anchor."
Are you dancing as fast as you can? Seriously, can't you go any faster, can't you do just one more thing? Why can't you fit IT into your schedule? Remember, there are still 5 things on your to-do list. Why can't you get everything done in a day, are you lazy, an underachiever, or is it just that you haven't got your priorities straight yet? What is taking you so long, what do I have to do, to get it through your head? I want this done, NOW!
Why are you trying to do everything for everyone? Why are you trying so hard? What are you trying to prove? If you're not doing IT, you're worrying about IT, agonizing over IT, and obsessing about IT, which is just as strenuous. Aren't you exhausted?
Just STOP IT. You don't need to do this anymore. You are enough, you are worthy, you are loved. STOP!
This is the defining moment...
Who is making you do everything? Who is the boss of you? YOU ARE! No one else can be the boss of you; you are an adult. No one can make you do anything. This is about you. You don't feel what you do is enough because you don't feel you ARE enough.
You are a child of the universe,
No less than the trees and the stars“
You have a right to be here
Whether or not it is clear to you
The universe is, no doubt, is unfolding as it should”
Max Ehrmann - excerpt from Desiderata 1927
Trust and accept.... the entire universe is open for you, open for everyone. You have a right to be here, you are important and you are enough. YOU are loved.
