I want to advocate that it’s okay to take things slow

Keywords: {0}

I do know there are many out there , like me, wanting to take things slow but too afraid to drop out of the race around. Many out there who think maybe if I put effort the next two days I can’t relax t he next three. But honestly that’s not how it works. All the five days need a balance. And it’s okay to be slow. You aren’t competing with anyone. You’re just getting yourself better. You’re growing. And that’s what’s important. YOUR GROWTH.

A lot of what I’m working on is retraining habits I picked up over time and building new ones

What I’ve shared are the biggest relatable lessons but there are many other things I’m learning about myself. If you’re interested in pursuing therapy, I hope you move forward with it. Really consider who you would want to work with, how much it will cost and is it within your budget, and your availability to attend regular sessions.

I immediately thought about my 20s: all the roadblocks and subsequent miracles that had to happen for me to have the privilege of sitting on that bike overlooking the New York City skyline that day. As I close this chapter and embark on my 30’s (which btw everyone says is 10x better than your 20s and so far I agree), it’s fitting for me to finally share about those roadblocks, and the pride I have for overcoming them.

In addition to all this discomfort, I’ve also felt a sense of hope and unexpressed potential peeking through, like something really cool could be coming down the pipe

That sense of vastness, that life can be what I want it to be, and the startling realization that there really aren’t many rules (if any!) on how to do it properly.

The challenge of waking up each day and figuring out how I can best use my energy and creativity to help others, of keeping going despite inevitable failures, gives a deep sense of fufillment no amount of money could buy

I will want to do it even if there’s no financial reward at the end. The truth however, is that when you’re in alignment with your gifts, calling, passions – the likelyhood of making money is much higher – the difference is it’s more of a by product that an end goal.
