20 Aug This week will be different!
Things will be better when …..
“This week will be different”
Have you said that to yourself?
You’ve decided that this is the week when you won’t let work take over, you’ll be organised, get to the end of your to do list, go to the gym, cook healthy food, not be grumpy when you get home from work. You want to feel more like your old self.
You get organised at the weekend. Early to bed Sunday evening. The week starts well.
But then it happens.
That feeling overtakes you. It’s all slipping through your fingers again; your head is ready to explode; you can’t think straight. It feels like you’re wading through concrete.
And it’s only Monday lunchtime.
I know that feeling and so do many of my clients.
You’ve probably tried to sort it out for yourself – bought self-help books and read copious magazine articles to try to snap out of it.
You might have found yourself googling
- How to make life better
- Hacks to improve your life
- Stressed at work
- Unhappy at work
- Feeling stuck
- Feeling overwhelmed
- What job should I do
Yes, me too! But none of that gave me the clarity I was looking for.
I looked at other people and wondered how they managed – and why I couldn’t. Everyone else looked like they were doing o.k.
I realise now that I probably looked like I’d got everything sorted. And you probably do too.
I was looking outside for the answer – for the magic solution.
But what I needed to do was to look to myself for the answer.
I spent the best part of a year trying to figure it out myself.
Things will be better when ……
Then I found someone to talk to about it. Someone who listened to me, didn’t judge, but also didn’t just tell me everything would be o.k.
