This week was hard. I was stressed, anxious and overwhelmed.
Why? Because I had self inflicted standards I couldn’t live up to.
And… I was mad at myself because I know better. But, I really struggled to shake it.
I’m preparing to go on holidays and had so many things I wanted to do before I left.
And then I realized…
I am the one who decided the deadlines.
I am the one putting pressure on myself.
Seriously, I had to ask myself… who is the boss of your life Corliss? No one cares about your deadlines. They don’t even know them. No one cares if it isn’t perfect and there is nothing life or death here…
Yet here I was..
Pressuring myself to get everything done to deserve a holiday.
When you are aware you can change it.
I needed to chill out.
So here’s what I decided…
I don’t need to earn a break as it’s my right to enjoy life.
We put so much pressure on ourselves and we shouldn’t.
You are the boss of you.
In the big picture what matters is to enjoy your life. That memories are made from being present in happy times and spending time with people you love.
