We talk about time being such a valuable gift, well for me the energy with which we are able to enjoy and thrive within the structure of “time” is just as valuable. When we feel completely depleted all the time, something isn’t right. Yes, I know what you’re thinking….you’re probably not getting enough sleep, the right nutrition, etc. However, this isn’t always the case.
Don’t get me wrong, I 100% agree that taking care of our mind, body, and spirit is essential to our energy and overall vitality for living a fruitful life. Now, this is where so many of us (including myself for a long time) tend to fall short, is not understanding that the way our energy (mental, physical, emotional, spiritual) interacts with the world, is unique to each one of us.
For example, the things that light me up and fill me with energy vs the things that drain me are different for others, and so on, and so on. While we can all find common ground if we look for it, we are all uniquely different, and there are so many things that make up each and every one of our compositions as individuals.
Most of society in this day and age are go, go, go, hustle, hustle, hustle. This mentality leads to burnout, depression, illness, and so on. Too many people believe we have to be plugged in and constantly engaged…especially with the technology and social media available for so many, right at our fingertips. It’s an addiction. This is just one part of the complex problem that is draining so many of us.
The world as a whole doesn’t respect that we all have our own unique rhythm’s and if we’re not constantly striving for bigger, better, busier…something must be wrong with us, or we’re labeled lazy or underachievers. What we need to do is work at uncovering our own unique human design (hence our own unique rhythm).
It’s time society moves in a new direction or paradigm that respects that we are not all the same. Where we respect each individual’s natural rhythm and find a new approach to how we define one’s value in the world. You’re worth shouldn’t be defined by the number of hours you spend doing something, the number of friends you have, or the things you own. It’s about your character and beauty that only can shine out into the world.
