Despite having a full and busy first half to this year, sometimes I can’t help but feel that I haven’t been productive — specifically in my quest for meaningful work. Usually this means it’s time to stop and take stock of the things I’ve done:
I’ve revamped my website and written posts from a place of integrity and truth on a regular basis, including my contributions here at Scoutie Girl.
I took an online class to solidify my workshop design skills, produced an outline for a one-hour workshop that’s almost ready to go and the visual material to go with it. Following a strong intuitive call, I created a second workshop and am piloting it as I type.
I took an online art class, learned new skills and techniques, and broadened my artistic reach.
Meanwhile, on the outskirts of meaningful work, I worked hard at my part-time office job, bought and moved house, and traveled to Paris and London.
I got up each day and lived what it had to offer.
I’m not listing all of this to brag or boast; I’m listing it for myself, to shed light on just how much has taken place and acknowledge a life fully lived.
And you know what? I bet anything you’ve been living a full life, too.
Just for fun, why don’t you pull out a pen and write down what you’ve been up to? I bet you it’s more than you think.
So when you’re feeling kind of sluggish, stalled, or down on yourself, remember that there’s usually a lot more going on than meets the eye and that sometimes, keeping things running smoothly is hard work.
Then give yourself a pat on the back because YOU are doing a fabulous job!
