Life Gets Complicated

Life gets complicated. When you’re being pushed and pulled in all different directions, it can be tiring, overwhelming and intense especially when you’re continually doing, meeting deadlines, demands and taking action from a place where you’re not at your best. I genuinely believe it’s in these intense and often chaotic, and demanding times in our lives that we can have the most significant opportunities for learning and growth. Life will never be simple and easy going 100 per cent of the time, and that’s ok. There is no such thing as perfection.

There will always be times when we experience added pressure in business, at work or home. I choose to live in a way that supports me while life continues to flow. Challenging life circumstances, both large and small, will naturally happen. When they do and things start to feel complicated, I find it helpful to ask these questions.

  • How can I simplify and manage this in a way that serves me and supports those involved?
  • Can I manage my energy differently in this situation?
  • Am I creating space for myself?

With overflowing schedules it’s easy to feel as though there aren’t enough hours in the day to get it all done. However, by slowing down, creating space for yourself and managing your energy in a new way, you can start to move through life with more ease and calm even when life gets complicated.
