If your life looks the same every day, it’s because you don’t look for the little things that you enjoy
It is important to talk about the things that matter. It’s been a crazy year for all of us. I’ve lost companies, we’ve gained it. People have lost their homes and moved and we’ve all been doing it. And the one thing that’s remained constant for me has been leveraging relationships and being in relationship with the people that matter, focusing on what matters. What I want everybody to understand is that you should have no guilt about taking time off. You cannot work 24/7. You are not a robot that is not your job, but like, put it in containers. Give yourself permission to go be with family, to go be fully present, to hide your phone, throw it out the window for all I care. Just be present and be okay with that. No guilt required
Give yourself a permission slip. Write this down. “I give myself permission to be present, have gratitude, and leave work where work belongs, which is a couple of days off. Or a day off or an hour off for a set amount of time off, because at the end of the day, it’s time to connect with ourselves and connect with our loved ones to make sure that this business, that we’re building and the work that we’re doing, we’re actually enjoying the results of what we get.”
I’m grateful that we’re moving and we can go on more adventures and like that we’re moving. We get to like, change things about ourselves. One of the things I’m grateful for this year has been rough in a lot of reasons for business, but it’s brought us as a family closer together. If your life looks the same every day, it’s because you don’t look for the little things that you enjoy. Give yourself the space to see, to notice. Pick your head up and look around and see the things that we have, the things that we’re grateful for, the things that we’ve still created and still managed to do.
I want all of you to remember that it’s a beautiful time of the year, every day of the year, but right now it’s so important. Take some time and call yourself, love yourself, lean into yourself, and then lean into those closest around you. Enjoy these moments that we have and create moments that we can all utilize what we’re building to have and do it.
So buy yourself some time, go focus on the things that matter, work will be there. And then come back in refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to go. With all that ammunition of doing the things that matter. So have a beautiful Christmas, have a beautiful New Year. Merry Christmas from the Bryan’s, the Stubblefield, the Jean, and the team, because that’s what we do.
