Sydney - A Moment of Reflection - 21.10.18
Sunday, October 21, 2018
It’s been awhile. I went out last night with some coworkers from Fitness First. It was heaps of fun!! lol look at me using the lingo. So as we all know what goes hand in hand with a fun night out = a not so fun hangover morning. I seriously don’t remember the last time I was hungover. This is why I rarelyyyyy drink! It’s just not worth wasting the next day for me. BUT as I have learned, learn to be thankful for each and every situation. I felt/ am feeling quite spacey this morning, which has put me in a state of reflection. As much as I don’t like feeling slow, and thinking slow, it has allowed me to take a step back and reflect on where I am right now and what I am doing.
*Ps if this blog is a little all over the place that’s because I am definitely not functioning at my optimal level right now.
So back to where I am. I am thankful that I have been given the opportunity to work at all these different gyms, however I am aware that Orange Theory Fitness doesn’t light me up. Mainly because I am not actually instructing, when that’s what I love. Time is so precious. Don’t waste it doing something that doesn’t light the fire within you. Yes it’s great to make money, but money comes and goes, as for your time - you can never get that back. Also because if I want my brand to grow, to be able to travel and share products that are aligned with me, I need to put the time into doing that. More time into blogging, vlogging, and social media. And obviously my training and programs, but that I am doing daily. At this moment in time I am always working and when I am not I am either so tired or eating. This probably doesnt make a lot of sense because I am figuring it all out as I go, but I just wanted to share my thoughts because I think it’s important to sit down with yourself and pick which direction you want to move in, then you have to be strict with yourself that everything you do has to be aligned with that end goal. Yes its tough because we all need money, and leaving a paying job to invest your time into something that is delayed gratification may not be the responsible thing to do, but it’s a risk that I am willing to take and I think we all should. I have faith in the universe and am learning to trust the process. I basically just tell myself that a painting will sell when I need it to and then I won’t have to worry.
The point of this is don’t do anything for money. Do it out of love.
Steve Jobs said “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking.”
