Do you have Over Achiever Syndrome??

Over achiever syndrome 

 There I was laying on the couch feeling  exhausted. my body had enough, my mind was shot and I had a two-year-old running around

 That was a time in my life when I had 3 jobs, I was constantly working and raising a child.

I had literally worked myself sick

 I would have a goal, work really hard to achieve it and then I found and I still wasn’t satisfied

 so then I picked a new goal 

I was constantly seeking in achieving, Yet still feeling like my efforts weren’t enough I was so focused on getting to the next thing

Around  The same time I also started getting into personal growth, development and diving deeper into spirituality 

 Again I noticed the same pattern appearing

There was always something to strive for, learn, master get to the next level of achievement 

After many years I realized how exhausted I was 

I was overwhelmed and not able to enjoy the moment or be present 

I couldn’t celebrate my success because I was so focused on what was next 

When is enough enough? It was an endless game.

I was tired of getting Getting triggered or set off

I noticed I was frustrated, apathetic 

And the Feelings of not enough and  lack all pointed to an underlying Low self worth. Who I was just didn’t feel like enough.  I was seeking outside of myself for what I have now found within 

I needed to slow down,

Give myself a break and create space for just being 

It has taken a lot of work to learn to be happy with me as I am, to be grateful for what I have and where I am at….acceptance 

I had to learn to kill my ego. It was not up to me to save the world or even myself

I didn’t need saving. 

Who was I to determine how things should be?

What is present is perfect just the way it is, because that is what it is

I am enough just as I am….and so are you!

I invite you to do less and receive more 

Celebrate what you have 

Practice gratitude and compassion 

Enjoy the journey

There is no end destination 

There is no arrival 

The prize is the present moment 

The destination is the present
