Everyone goes through different seasons in life. Some seasons are more fruitful, with progress and achievement of goals. Some seasons are stagnant and stasis, with no visible light at the end of the tunnel. No matter what season you are in, there is always something to be learning from. That is the beauty of life – always evolving!
Sometimes progress is taking a step back and reflecting on your decisions to plan for a better path forward. I learned this year that too much on your plate can truly be too much. I learned that it is okay to put yourself first when you need to; that it doesn’t make you any less successful for doing so.
Being a highly sensitive person, I am very in tune with my emotions and the emotions of others around me. I’m a proud empath at heart. I want to make an impact on others and make them feel supported, but in order to do that, I have to take care of myself. As cliché as it sounds, it is the ultimate truth I have learned this year. We cannot control life circumstances, we can only control how we react to and handle them. Keep going. Keep growing. “Enjoy where you are right now.”
