Now that I have introduced the foundation of Showing up and Letting go to living my best life I wish to expand on how “showing up” appears on a daily basis.
Showing up doesn't necessary mean attending every event in your diary but rather engaging in activities which make you happy. In my case I always spoke about projects I intended to start but never ‘having the time” to complete or questioning ‘will it even be worth it’.
I noticed my approach was negative and I longed to show up with an open mind and a positive outlook which is what prompted me to challenge myself. I took to my notebook and prepared a list of intentions I could easily incorporate within my daily life such as seeing family or friends, going for a walk and very slowly I built the motivation and energy to expand this to other activities.
Overtime I slowly built upon my daily goals to more committed activities such as attending wellness talks, mediation and even starting those projects I mentioned earlier. We are all on a journey and for this reason I wish to share some tools which help propel me into the right frame of mind to approach each day with a positive mindset.
During my wellness journey I have reconnected with one of my closest childhood friends whose life had reached a similar stage to mine consequently we are navigating this together. In such a fast-paced society daily life can prove challenging which is why it is so important to build a healthy support system, do not be afraid of engaging your friends into healthy new activities you want to try out, they may want to show up too.
Staying positive, healthy, focussed and self-aware, both internally and externally.
