It’s so easy to get caught up in daily and weekly routines. We build hectic, jammed-packed lives and then have the audacity to wonder why we’re so burnout, fatigued, and desperate for some downtime.

I recently started meeting with my life coach again because I was feeling stagnant, stuck, and unmotivated.

“I want purpose!” I practically yelled during our session via zoom.

So she did what she does best and started asking thought-provoking questions like what do I enjoy? What am I good at? What can I get into a flow doing? What does my ideal day look like? Where do I see myself in five years? What do I need to do to become that person I envision myself as?

Not only did her nudges push me towards revisiting and resetting goals, but she also pushed me to dive deep into myself. How do I want to spend my one precious and beautiful life? What kind of impact do I want to make? How can I be my most authentic self?

One phrase keeps circulating in my busy, stimulated mind: invest in yourself.

I have the resources to pursue my dreams and my goals. I need to simply get out of my own way and let myself dream big and work hard.
