I used to think that I was being efficient. Not only did I not know that there was an issue with me constantly running from one thing to the next, I thought I was doing good for myself and everyone around me. But, when I stopped and looked at my life, and I mean really looked at it, I found several things that really surprised me.
- My house was a mess
- My heart was a mess
- My relationships were a mess
And I was barking orders at my children and husband, with a deep feeling of discontentment inside.
I realized I was lying to myself. The VERY people I said I was doing all these things for, were the people I was running over while doing it. “Get out of my way! Don’t you see I am trying to do all of this for you/us?!” I would think to myself.
My “productivity” was not producing what I had hoped it would.
I felt unsafe and the byproduct of that had me racing around, trying to secure some sense of stability.
I was adding to the problem.
I would have to learn that I couldn’t secure a sense of safety by doing more.
I would have to learn to do less.
What did this actually look like?
- Committing to less
- Breath work and prayer
- Limiting screen time
- Decluttering my spaces consistently
- Prioritizing sleep
- Limiting my exposure to people who lived in a frenzy like I did (its contagious)
More than anything, I had to quit believing the LIE that doing more would make me feel better inside. My worth isn’t found in what I get done.
You know what happened? Over time, my mind, heart, and body quit racing. I broke free from the rush, and created a new “normal.”
I believe you can too.
