I don’t know about you, when I want to accomplish something BIG, I want it and I want it now. Such is life with ADHD and long term goals. That is an incredibly hard way to live if you need to sustain small, positive steps over a long period of time.
In this episode I cover:
- A recent conversation I had with the amazing Jamie Lee about coming from a place of already having and being enough. Jamie is my life coach and we’ve been working on how to go for the life you want, but coming from a place of abundance rather than fear.
- Theodore Roosevelt quote: “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”
- How this mindset helped get me un-stuck. (Side note: It’s super hard to fall out of this mindset and slip back into old ways of thinking. It’s important to keep reconnecting with this idea to solidify it.)
- Putting this into practice: movie dates, toddler dates & baby showers – oh my! When I started acting like I already was at my goal, I stopped running myself like a robot and doing fun and human things. This made me a better worker when I got back to my projects.
- The duality of moving toward something better while still being okay with where you are at.
- The story of The Hotel Artist Catherine Rains, as featured on the Courage + Clarity podcast. This story was originally introduced to me by Leah Ballard of Suburban Imperfection, and I’m so glad she shared it in her group just as I was going through something similar. 🙂
