The pattern of lack
I keep seeing a pattern in so many areas. That we don't put ourselves first. In paying ourselves, in caring for our needs, in self care, in our joy, in allocating resources to what is needed or wanted. And why, because of our conditioning, in this mess that is capitalism and economics (economics is the study of lack) where there is never enough. It was designed like that!
Creating a sustainable practice
I know the entire pattern cannot be solved in one minute, nor will it be sustainable if we did that. Sustainability comes from regular habits and what we do each and every day, each month, and each year. But we can start by taking back even 1% of our time (14 minutes per day), 1% of our wealth, 1% of our attention, 1% of our joy back to ourselves. That is not selfish. It's essential. And even that little bit, goes a long way. Even that 1% will change our mentality and our habits.
If you've been in the habit of giving 100% to everyone else, it's gonna be hard to start to put even 1% aside for yourself. It will make you question yourself, it will make you challenge every aspect of cishet patriarchy and capitalism, and it will make you realize that you matter and are worthy of being taken care of and supported. All of these systems ask that we sacrifice ourselves at the cost of our well being, joy, love, relationships, health, and dreams just to be gulped back up in profits and wealth for the elite. Even in a few minutes and a few dollars, stops that trend in it's tracks.
Honoring Your Vision
It can be VERY uncomfortable to make that shift. To put yourself first and put attention and resources towards your vision, in a sustainable way, instead of just focused on the needs and wants of others and putting everything into a system that doesn't care or prioritize you or your well-being. Sustainable life, work, and relationships require something different. Honoring our dreams and vision, requires something new.
This is the work I do with clients in a deep, real way. We start recalculating our money, resources, attention and care back into our real work in the world, instead of work that doesn't fulfill and give back.
Are you ready to create sustainable transformation in your life, work, and relationships? Let's do it. I've got an open slot for my 1:1 services and I'd love to work with you.
