I’m trying to get my blog post for today written before the satellite installer gets here. But, woot tomorrow I should have fast internet. And I have learned so many things this week that tomorrow’s video should hopefully show my progress.
So here’s something I know already but really thought about today. One of the things that has always caused me to struggle and slow down my progress is OTHER PEOPLE. Other people are always telling me what to do, giving me advice, and clouding my own judgment.
This is one of the big reasons I meditate so that I am making my own decisions and doing what I truly want. Over the last week, I have shared what I am doing with a few people. I have shared my Youtube videos and then I also talked to someone today about my plan for my business. I now feel like people are trying to micromanage how I do things. I don’t why people do this, but they do.
When you talk to someone about your ideas, it’s not because you want them to give you advice or tell you what to do. Women especially just want an ear or someone to share their excitement with.
Today I really thought about what has worked for me in the past and I am going back to it. When it comes to your ideas, your excitement, your projects, your new workout, your diet, whatever, sometimes telling people your plans sabotages them. I used to be a big believer in shouting out your goals so that you had accountability (and a little peer pressure). I still think that can be good. But, when you do that, people can’t help but put their two cents in.
So, my thoughts for today. If you don’t want people’s opinions or advice, don’t share it! Just don’t. Today I am really working on my joy and enthusiasm and keeping it going. Other people’s advice (or reminder that “you’re all over the place) kills my spirit. I have ADHD and bipolar. I know these weaknesses and reminding me about them NEVER makes them go away. It just leads to me having incredible anxiety about my ADHD and bipolar.
Today’s goal practice mindfulness and let go of the negative energy I received today and get my daily goals done! Staying focused is always challenging but today I have already succeeded at some of it. I made my video, did exercise day 6, and made my bed. I’ll post more tomorrow.
