I’ve been a little up and down emotionally these past couple months. Actually, this whole year. It’s been a crazy year and I’ve been pushing the edges in my life and work — a lot. Can you relate?
Many of my friends have been experiencing an extremely challenging year, which has just started to let up a bit in recent weeks. And this kind of emotional experience is typical of many artists and Highly Sensitive People. Because we feel so strongly, we’re able to reach depths that allow us to penetrate the veils of the human condition. But it can also become a liability. When these kind of emotions start to spin out of control, it can be incredibly difficult to stay on top of your work.
A couple days back I was left to fend for myself in Albania when my sweetie took off for another adventure. Granted I’m in a beautiful place by the sea in my air-conditioned flat, with the most delicious food EVER just down the street… AND the way I live can be insanely challenging. With so many unknowns in my present and future, it can easily start to feel like the ground is slipping away when yet one more challenge rears it’s gorgeous face. So I have to do what it takes to step it up and stay on top of my game.
And for me — stepping up my game means:
Working harder to show up FIERCE and do the work, step into my Soul Power, and be real with where I’m at. So that’s what I done and wrote out my core approach in three steps, plus a few more for good measure below. I hope this helps! Try it out and let me know how it goes.*
