-Legs up the sky-
The past couple of weeks I have been in vacation mode: no work, no weekdays, no worries.
I have been sleeping, laying around, reading a little of this and that, watching some movies, doing some yoga and spending time with good friends. It has been bliss!
For the first time in a very long time I have actually felt like I could take a break. Like it was OK for me to do nothing, plan nothing and not think ahead. Living in the moment, adhering to my hearts wishes. I was actually able to sleep until I felt rested (sometimes over 12 hours), lay on my back and watch the clouds, enjoy a mindless movie (well to a certain degree mindless anyway), and watch the sunset (whilst knowing I was missing my regular yoga class). I say this with aw and admiration because I have been struggling with activity-addiction and perfectionism for over a decade. I am passionate about life and living to the fullest, learning, growing, experiencing everything there is! But like so many of us I tend to confuse this passion with perfectionism. With the need to prove myself in search of recognition (aka: love and beloning). But what if, I stopped trying to prove myself and trusted in the passion without perfectionism? What if, I actually am enough and I'm living my life to the fullest when my feet are up in the sky?
I feel like I am about to find out... #lifechanges
