I quit working out and why It was the BEST decision ever.
And a couple other shifts I made to get to a more peaceful space.
- YES. I stopped working out and it was one of the BEST decisions. WAIT. Hear me out. I still believe in fitness 100%. HOWEVER, I personally was a fitness FANATIC (obsessive) for so many years all for the wrong reason. The last two years I gave myself a break. A rest. I actually gave myself permission to take a fitness hiatus. It’s important to be in an emotional and spiritually accepting headspace for that (at least for me). It has allowed me to “be still” more and to listen to my heart. I’m not saying I will never get back in to it but definitely not in the same form as before. I love Walks and Hikes and I do love activity like kickboxing and sometimes weight lifting - When I’m ready I will know. It needs to be Fun and enjoyable for me at this stage of the game!
2. I stopped trying to please EVER.Y.ONE:#retiredpeoplepleaser Anyone else? Even as a kid I remember giving away my things to “friends” to keep people happy. For years I didn’t even know that being a “people pleaser” was a thing! Being True to who I really am is critical to MY happiness! Doing things that inspire ME, Things that I love. Things that make ME happy. I think it needs to be taught in schools!
I hope these gave you some inspiration on some ways that you can also get to such a beautiful and peaceful place!! I have a small community on FB all about encouraging others to Use their Voice and to Be True to who they are… If you’d be interested click this link and we can get you in!!
