Today’s Monday Mantra is for all of you who always feel like you’re the one picking up the pieces, always the person who is too busy to do anything for yourself, who always feels like it’s all up to them.
Regardless of what capacity you find yourself feeling pushed into something or stuck with something, remember that you always have a choice.
Just because you said yes to a project or event, doesn’t mean that you are then doomed to “have to” go or complete it. You always have a choice.
You always have a choice. In how to see things, how to hear things and how to say things.
You may have chosen to pile your projects up so high, you’ve left no room for yourself. Choose to let one or two go or refer them on to someone else who can assist.
You may have chosen a career path or course, only to decide that it’s not really what you want to do. Choose to change direction if that is what you want.
Holding onto something or staying in a situation when it doesn’t work for you, is actually more detrimental to your body, mind and spirit. It’s actually okay to say no, it’s actually okay to say “upon thinking about the situation, I’m not sure that this will fit in with my schedule / plans etc, so I’m going to have to let this project go.”
You always have a choice. You may not always be able to see it, but you definitely always have a choice.
Where do you currently feel like you don’t have a choice?
Where do you feel tired or frustrated?
Now think about what choices you made to bring you to that point?
And what choices can you make in order to relieve the pressure right now?
Remember: You always have a choice.
As always, save it, print it or pin it somewhere you’ll see it and when you see it, say it. And if you think someone you know might benefit from this mantra, share it.
