I woke up with a slight headache today and the clear message to take it easy: Still in bed, I pulled the Retreat card. It’s my day off, my period started, and I have a million things on my to do list, but don’t feel like doing any of it today.
I think taking one day off completely per week is a very healthy practice! I still have tomorrow to get stuff done…well, and the rest of the week 😉
I also got a very clear message to take it easy on myself: I put a ton of work into creating an online course the past couple months, but I’m still not 100% happy with the recordings, and the slides and everything…but after approximately 50 hours of work (probably more) I just don’t have the motivation to redo everything AGAIN. I already did that 3 times. So I thought about using the content to create an ebook, and forget about video and audio recordings for now…
But the message I received was: “Your ego is standing in the way of you sharing important information with the world. Your fear of being judged and not being perfect makes you selfish, makes you hold back content that may be helpful to others. Just release the damn thing!”
Holy moly. It’s true: Fear is selfish, any type of fear! So even if my stuff isn’t perfect, I’ve put so much time and energy into creating it, I better stop procrastinating and just finish what I started – if the content I’m sharing is helpful to just a single person on earth, it’s worth releasing it! And if nobody at all is interested in my course, that’s fine, too: It’s a learning experience after all! But I’ll never know how it lands until I put it out there…
So that’s an important insight! At the same time, today is clearly not the day to dive into work – today is the day to rest and recharge so I have energy and inspiration to build my first sales funnel and get my course done.
And also, it’s a day to be with my beloved: The Soulmate card came up second 🙂 So, I’m gonna check out now, and allow myself to enjoy a restful day!
To all of you people with regular work days, I hope everything goes well for you today…and that you can allow yourself to retreat next weekend! ♡
Much love from the couch 😉
