Why Does Life Feel SLOW? But You feel You Work So Hard..

It is funny how when we are little we can't wait to be older and then as soon as you reach that desired age you automatically wish you were yonger. Why are we not just happy with our age in this moment?

The answer ? Well there are many but one which comes to my mind.. we always want something more or something we can't have. Now in some areas of life this isn't a bad thing for example in career it is good to want more in a healthy way which leads you to bigger and better things for your life. However this same thing can be toxic in our lives if we do not deal with it in a healthy way. 

So lets make the water clear.. 

Why is this toxic? Well.. when you are always wanting something else you tend to miss a lot. This could be moments or opportunities or even time. Then the ball starts rolling and you spend too much time on the future that you havent paid attention to your current situation and you wonder why things are not going how you want them to go in your head. It takes steps and you have to get yourself from A to B BUT how can you get to B when you don't even know what A is or pay attention to it? 

I am experiencing this realisation for myself right now. There are so many things I want to do and I have a goal I want to reach, however things are hard. Things are slow. Anyone who is creating their own business will know this. However the trap is we get stuck on what we want and stop enjoying what we have. So now I realise I need to pay attention to the current situation and look at what is working and what isn't and make a few changes. 

Everything is possible to change so it is all about sitting down and picking apart your emotions and figuring out what works and what doesn't. If you do this you may even find B comes quicker! 

So take 5 minutes to write out the pros and the cons. This could be anything from not liking your curtains to deeper emotions. Get it all out on the paper. Once you have it written it all down go down the list and see how much you can alter to improve your daily life. 

Lets try it out together?

Have a great day!! 365 days. 365 chances.

  1. Hi Ivy! :) I feel exactly the same way too... sometimes life gets too hectic that I wish I were still a young girl but after reading this, I've set my mind... I actually can get what I aim for in life but if I do it one at a time. Eventually I'll get there... maybe not tomorow but soon. Thanks for this very simple but yet inspiring post. Keep smiling! Let's continue to work to get reach our goals. :)
