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.
