We are bracing for another winter storm here in the Midwest, and I am doing my best to resist the urge to turn in to a full on winter hermit. January tends to have that effect on me. I kind of forget about it every year until it rolls back around again (selective memory, perhaps? 🤔). I’m not sure if it is grey sky/cold weather related or more because I freeze in the face of the pressure to map out yet another amazing year of goal crushing? It is a weird space for me, and seems to fly in the face of my personality. I blame the enneagram 3 in me (sorry @stefcassetto.
😂😘 Lol.) But seriously....when 3's are stressed they tend to disengage, feel worn out, have a lack of motivation, find ways to numb out, and become less productive/efficient. 🙋🏻♀️ So....what to do...??? I give myself grace. I allow a few naps here and there that I usually wouldn't consider. I find some new books to dig in to. In short, I slow down (NOT my typical m.o.). I reach for growth....connecting with my emotions (not easy for me!), releasing the need for control and learning to just "be". If you feel frozen right now (be it literally or figuratively), take heart. You are not alone, and this season is not without purpose. ❄️🖤
