Are You Feeling Insane Yet?
Nov 22, 2020
Not gonna lie: yesterday was a grind for Jason.
There are some days where you've got to reach inside the depths of your being and find the will to get done what wants to be done. Also, chocolate helps. So does a nap. Don't underestimate the power of a good nap.
Anyway, earlier this morning, we were recording episode #154 of our podcast and we stumbled on a somewhat contentious subject. It actually got Jason's blood boiling a bit, to be honest. It was the topic of...
...New Year's Resolutions.
For years, we've gone all out with our vision boards, manifestation lists, intention prayers, visualization charts, mantras, voodoo dolls, blah blah blah. But looking back on 2020, did any of those things come true? Did any of those big resolutions find their way to completion?
Not a single one 'round here.
Can you relate? Did your resolutions get annihilated, too? If so, what can be done about it?
Welp, we could all #blame2020 like a lot of people online are apt to do right now. Or, maybe, we could diffuse the victim consciousness (how is a year to blame for anything, anyway) and treat this time as an opportunity to let go of expectations, observe how we fall into the comparison trap and how our sometimes unquenchable need for attention, approval, significance, and importance can wreak havoc in our lives.
Or maybe it's just time to shake things up and do things differently from a "tabula rasa" perspective with a blank slate mentality.
Einstein famously said, "The definition of insanity is trying the same thing over and over and expecting different results."
How many times have you kept trying the same meal plans, the same workout routines, the same mindfulness practices, the same strategies to beat your friends at Monopoly... only to feel frustrated and resentful because they didn't work for you the way you wanted or expected?
It's safe to say we all want to take massive leaps forward in our lives - from our professional success to our health, to our level of influence or being of service. But sometimes all we can manage is one tiny little step at a time.
Life sometimes forces you to pivot and change without being ready for it. Being able to lean on different support systems and people who've been down the same road is crucial.
