I absolutely believe in personal growth and self help. Life is always changing and we are always going along with change or fighting against it.
The personal growth industry is all about making ourselves better, more enlightened, more efficient, more this, more that…
I wonder if it’s just another trap like the beauty industry where we’re not okay as we are and we have to look different, act different, BE different, to fit in, be accepted, or find our place. It’s almost like we compare and despair about our personal growth as well and whether or not we’re doing even that right.
If something isn’t working in my own life, I’m often trying to figure out what I need to change about myself. Since we can’t control anyone but ourselves, it’s kinda up to us.
Maybe it’s time to stop and look at your life and notice that it’s not so horrible, not such a mess, not something that needs to be overhauled, or changed in a myriad of directions.
Is it possible you do like some parts of your life? Maybe some areas are working really well. Maybe you do love your job. Or your retirement. Or your volunteering. Or your significant other. Or your friends. Or your pets. Or your garden. Or your kids. Maybe you’re even happy with your body. Maybe your bank account isn’t in the red. Maybe you do eat a lot of healthy food and move your body in healthy ways.
Maybe nothing needs to be fixed right this minute.
What does that feel like?
Maybe where you are right now isn’t actually a problem. We spend so much time trying to make ourselves better, our lives better, our environment better.
I don’t disagree that some things could be better.
But just for once.
In this moment.
It doesn’t have to be you.
