Have you ever taken a step back to think… what am I doing with my life?
More recently I’ve felt this way about my life, specifically my romantic, work, and personal life.
Picking up and leaving LA has brought up a lot of feelings and emotions. Loneliness.
But I needed it.
Sometimes rather than going through the same things over and over, you need to change it up.
So recently with my YouTube videos, I shot a video about being “Why I feel like I’m lost and failing at 33”.
And in the video, I decided to incorporate things like skits and some overhead shots. It’s pretty fun.
I also hired a neurohacking coach, which honestly has been a game changer. Never in my life have I had someone so supportive and empathetic.
For my work life, I decided to not take on any more inbound closing clients for now. I’ve been through so much over the last few months. The last thing I need is more work – even though I could really use the money.
Finally is my relationship life. I’ve decided that I’m not going to date and continue my program with Mark Groves. He’s a relationship expert. And I really fuck with his content. For so long I’ve had such a bad relationship with myself, but I want to change that.
In addition to everything, I’m starting my morning pages, meditating, and doing sauna. I’m also doing yoga and jiu jitsu.
And I’ve been meeting people through Clubhouse too. It’s pretty cool stuff.
But more importantly what I’m not doing is MORE work, which is hard for me because so often I just go on autopilot.
Taking the time to sit with my emotions and check in with my emotional state is pretty new with me.
For so long, I’ve felt like I was in a state of survival. Where it’s like trap or die. Hell this whole blog is named Refugee Hustle.
But this is the next chapter of my life. Where instead of pushing myself to work, I start finding work that I feel pulled towards.
It’s a different feeling. And taking this break is helping me clearly figure out what the hell I want.
The work I want to do needs to be impactful and recreate that “aha” moment for the people I work with.
It allows me to dedicate levels of creativity and strategy – my two favorite things.
And it needs to incorporate the concept of kaizen. Continuous improvement. Otherwise shit gets boring over time.
Connection with other people is essential as well.
