The Burden of Trying to Be Balanced

Seriously ladies, balance is a self-defeating concept that continues to elude (even torture?) women around the globe. I even believe it chips away at our self-esteem and our sense of worthiness (more on that in a moment). Today I’m encouraging you to get off the balance bandwagon >>> ditch any associated guilt trips >>> and try something else instead.

Balance has become one of those concepts we use to measure how well we’re handling life.  (We may even equate balance to giving 100% to all areas of our lives?) Regardless, we don’t live in a balanced society. The nature of our lifestyles, whether you’re a stay at home mama or a boss lady (or both), pretty much guarantees a lack of balance. We’re basically set up for failure. So why do we idealize balance, and what can we do instead?

Not feeling good enough? Try this…

Today I want to give you a taste of my secret sauce for overcoming moments of feeling like you’re not good enough. Obviously feeling unworthy is something that affects all of us, some more than others, but did ya know that it actually affects highly successful people as much if not more than the average Jane? Yup, it’s true.

Because for some of us (ahem, moi), we developed a pattern of striving for outward success to compensate for what we felt was lacking internally. Which on one hand is pretty cool – go us – we didn’t just sit on our butts and do nothing. On the other hand, it’s not so bueno because it leads to a constant cycle of joy sucking and exhaustion. If a key pillar of our worth is based on success, then we are fulfilled only when we’re winning, achieving, succeeding. Make sense?

So, here’s a few ways I’ve learned to deal with the “unworthies” (as I call them) when they come knocking…

THE question that affects your waistline

Over the last two weeks I was tempted to eat a massive amount of food via mindless grazing and snacking. I was focused on launching my online program, which is kind of like finals week in college, when you temporarily live and breathe your work while in your pajamas. But, not only did I not eat the massive amount of food, I actually lost weight.

I noticed I kept thinking about food. When I felt blocked with the material I was working on, I thought about food. When I felt stressed about a technical challenge, I thought about food. When I felt relieved from an insight, I thought about food. Food was the automatic response.

Seven Ways You’re Wasting Energy and Creating Exhaustion

When I started exploring the root cause my fatigue, I explored the relationship between our body and our energy centers, or chakras, specifically the solar plexus chakra. The solar plexus is associated with personal power, ego, self-worth, confidence, accomplishment, transformation, and our ability to visualize success. Physically it’s connected to the liver, gallbladder, spleen, stomach, small intestine, adrenals, mid-spine area, and pancreas.

When this area has a physical imbalance, we may experience chronic fatigue, eating disorders and more. Emotionally we may experience powerlessness, greed, doubt, anger, indecision, lack of motivation or willpower, need to control, dishonoring self, low-self esteem and fear.

Why am I so tired all the time? Life with Adrenal Fatigue

Tired in the morning (and all day really) and wired in the evening. By tired I mean absolutely exhausted. The kind of tired that you feel behind your eyes and makes you want to crawl in a cave and hide from the world so no one will ask anything from you. That’s how I’d describe what I later realized was adrenal fatigue.

Progress over perfection

Over the last few months I’ve had a couple of opportunities to let my inner perfectionist flare up…over something random. Have you ever heard of oil pulling? Basically you put a tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth and swish it around for 20 minutes.

I read about the benefits of doing it and jumped right in a while ago. The first time felt weird. But by the second or third time I was hooked. Six months later at my usual dental check-up, my regular hygienist asked what I was doing different because my gums were even healthier. That feedback solidified my commitment to it. Plus, it’s a natural teeth whitener!

Enough of Not Being Enough

Ladies, we need to talk.

On Monday I sent an email out to my subscribers asking what their number one struggle is. (By the way, please feel free to email or private message me on FB if you’d like to share your #1 struggle– I’m using this information to build out future programs including some free ones). The #1 thing I heard was: I don’t feel good enough.

Bitchy, and About to Snap (a meditation)

I want share a funny way (or embarrassing…ridiculous…genius way???) I use meditation. Many years ago, when I was still in the corporate space, I created a meditation I call “Bitchy, and About to Snap,” and it TOTALLY WORKS!

Because no matter how patient and kind you are, we all have those moments where we feel like our horns are going to prevail over our halo. And it may or may not have aaaaaanything to do with the person in front of us.

Forget worry…send a light flurry

A very close friend of mine recently received some upsetting news and naturally felt quite stressed as a result. A short while after speaking with her, I realized how crappy I was feeling inside. I was worrying about my friend. Plus, I began personalizing her situation. Allowing it to bring up old feelings of similar memories in my past. And in doing all of this, I felt really down. Anxious, fearful, and rocking a major lack mindset.

I was allowing my thoughts to imagine the worst, which created these yucky feelings. When I gained awareness of this, I realized it isn’t helping me and it isn’t helping my friend. Ultimately being worried for someone does not change the situation. There are other (and better) ways to show concern and care for someone. So I changed my thinking.
