I still remember the days that I had the time to go and make myself a cup of coffee while my computer was coming to life. If I wanted to connect to the internet I had to “dial-in” nobody else could use the phone at the same time. You had to be very quick to download your mails – if you were lucky to already have an e-mail address – and disconnect as soon as possible. Time spend on the net was a costly affair!
There was no such thing as the “cloud” and it could take days before your correspondent would reply to your mail. Remember, they also had to connect to the net the same way 😆
The least you can say is that exchanging information goes a tiny bit quicker these days. But… it came with a downside. Our lives also got fast-paced and from time to time it might even go a bit too fast.
There is no more time to get that cup of coffee while your computer is starting up because we just never turn it off. Just imagine how much time you would lose if you had to turn it on again 🤦🏼♀️
We are always connected, always ready to answer that “urgent” e-mail or that text message. Which we don’t answer by typing because a voice message is sooo much quicker 🙄 When we see a notification popping up, we can’t resist the urge to go and check it out. The idea of putting your phone in “do not disturb mode” probably scares the hell out of you.
You find it hard to slow down and disconnect but deep down you just know you can’t possibly keep up with this pace.
And if you do try to keep up, you probably will become part of some statistics.
I know first-hand how hard it can be to get to try to keep up – running around from one place to another, trying to make it all work, and wishing that today I could maybe find half an hour to sit down and relax. I was living up to expectations that weren’t my own. Slowing down wasn’t part of my vocabulary.
There was always so much to be done, so much that quickly needed to get sorted, friends you didn’t want to disappoint, parties you needed to attend.
I just knew that I couldn’t go on like this, I knew that I needed to make some changes if I wanted to obtain the balanced life I craved.
Slowly but surely, I found MY stride. I took responsibility for my thoughts and actions, I can manage my stress levels, found inner balance, and managed to prevent burnout!
I’m walking my own path and trust my own journey. And through doing that, I hope to inspire you to do the same!
I want to help you cut through the fog that is out there and get you focused on what will help you achieve your goals and dreams and more importantly, help you to slow down!
