We are ALWAYS changing. Our interests, or values, shift from season to season. We all have things we keep in our lives that are no longer useful. Things that no longer meet our needs, take up space, and create clutter. Think about those jeans you had back in high school… we dream of sliding back into them- ONE DAY. The reality is you would probably do well to donate them (or trash them) and make room for new ones that fit you so much better TODAY.
Why should your life values be any different? Although your core values will typically remain the same- life values often shift and change depending upon where you are in your life, what you are doing, and who is around. Think of your Values as your guiding principles for this chapter- today.
Isn’t it time you re-evaluate what is important to you (aka: your values) identifying what matters and get rid of the baggage?
Change happens- Have you shifted?
Take a moment and ask yourself, “What am I tolerating/putting up with that needs to change so I can move forward?”
We tend to get dragged down and overwhelmed by things that pile up over time – and end up cluttering our minds. Now is the time to identify what you’re tolerating!
Although you may not want to do anything about the “stuff” right now, just writing them out will raise your awareness and you’ll naturally start handling, fixing and resolving those “tolerations”.
So, make a list of what you’re putting up with at work – and at home – to determine what might be cluttering your mind and slowing you down! Start inventorying your “Backpack.”
If you need examples: Incomplete tasks, frustrations, problems, other people’s or your own behavior, clutter, shoulds, unmet needs, crossed boundaries, overdue bills, outdated wardrobe, unresolved issues or guilt, lack of exercise, eating habits, being indecisive, procrastinating, lack of sleep etc…
Over time and as you think of more items, add them to your list.
To lose the baggage, you have to “show up”, be intentional, and choose to create the life that works best for you.
Use this free exercise to get rid of the baggage, lighten the load, and embrace the moment.
