You might hear yourself saying something along the lines of:
“It will get better when:…”
“My assignment is handed in”
“I have more time”
“I have more money”
“I finish uni”
“The deadline at work is completed”
The thing is, there is never going to be the “perfect” time or the perfect anything.
The construct of “perfect” doesn’t work in our fluid life with all it’s moving parts.
This is 100% a given fact.
This is 100% never going to change.
We simply can’t allow ourselves to fall prey to this notion that is either never going to exist, or it only exists once in a blue moon.
So instead of knocking our head across the concrete wall waiting for the day where we have more time, have more money, have finished all our deadlines, let’s start looking at the picture differently and begin to reframe this in our heads.
Life is fluid and ever evolving, our attitude and ability to deal with such facts is something we must address and our actions around this need to change.
We must take action without all our ducks in a row.
We must still prioritise our training even when there is so much stuff to do at work.
We can’t control what will be provided at the lunch meeting, but we can choose what else we eat for the rest of the day.
Whenever you hear your language stepping into these patterns: picture a stop sign.
What can I do to make this situation better?
You can take control ladies!
