Don’t Try Harder, Try EasyDawn Kotzer
“What 3 priorities for the next 30 days will move me closer towards living life on my own terms?”
Top Tip: Focus on the ones you believe are a stretch, but achievable.”
Did I mention I got up at dawn to write this?
I never get up that early. That tells me writing into this challenge has grabbed my attention.
I recall a quote shared by a client last week that also grabbed my attention.
“don’t try harder, try easy”
Trust me, ‘Try Easy’ feels a bit of a stretch for me.
I’m willing to give it a go.
By Lowering unrealistic Expectations of myself…you know, those ‘UGH.listic’ expectations raised by the pressure of unkind self talk, judgment, BullS—comparison, fear of rejection and not being good enough. Ya, those ones.
I am gonna cut myself some slack and lighten up.
Slip into a space of ease
Pass on my habit of ‘squeeze’
I’m giving myself Permission to stretch my comfort zone in a way that matches my Feel Good Groovy.
Lowering unrealistic Expectations doesn’t mean lowering standards.
It means allowing space for ourselves to meet our ‘standards’ in a way that doesn’t drive us nuts, a way that brings out the beauty in us…not the beast.
Staying in this 30 Day Blog Challenge is a bit of a stretch too. Will I make it? hmmm, too soon to tell…
I’m giving myself Permission to suck and do a crappy job a first at first…Lowering UGH.listic Expectations while I enjoy the process.
After all, I’m new to this…It’s NorMal to make a few mistakes, post Day 6 on Day 9…you know, things like that, right?
Yay! I Get To give it my best and Try Easy.
