Prior to the pandemic, my schedule was chaotic and caused me so much anxiety. No matter what I did to try to create organization within my calendar, it never stuck. Being an entrepreneur who always has various projects going on at the same time made it difficult to maintain a “template” for how I wanted each day to look like. Once I started working from home everyday, I took a step back to look at my work and calendar big picture. I learned that I needed to be ok with plans shifting or getting interrupted. I also realized that I needed to peal back.
I am always telling y’all to stop comparing yourselves to others. I truly believe that, but it’s so hard, right?? I struggle with it too sometimes. It’s especially difficult on social media. The purpose of social media is to follow and look at other people’s lives. We are just asking ourselves to compare. No matter what anyone else is doing or saying, you have to follow your passion. Don’t let others distract you from following your dreams!! Your passions and ideas are yours and that’s what makes them unique and special.
I don’t know exactly what it is, but I am working on myself more than ever. I’mnot sure if it’s my age, becoming a mom, being married for 5 years, quarantine or just all of it, but I am on the mission to be the happiest, most productive and calm I can be. Last week, I talked to Kelsey Murphy, Business and Life Coach, on my podcast, WITH WHIT and she helped me put into words everything I was feeling, thinking and wanting to get better at. Isn’t it the best when you can connect to someone who speaks your language?
