Concussions Lead to Clarity
In my old life I used to think a lot of things would make me happy: money, certain levels of success in all things (achieving things/goals) and owning things. I used to think that being busy and doing a lot of activities made for a fulfilling life, so my schedule was jam packed everyday. I really didn't even know these were the things that I thought would make me happy, it was just ingrained in me through advertisement, the adults in my life, and for lack of a more sexy way to say it, "everyone was doing it!"
It wasn't until I was laying in bed recovering from my second concussion in a few months, that I began to ask myself why I was doing what I was doing. I had no idea what was motivating me, but my body had finally had enough. At the time I was training for a half Ironman triathlon and I distinctly remember waking up and getting ready to meet my trainer, while concurrently my inner voice telling me I am exhausted and still going forth with it.
Do you know what motivates you? Why you do what you do? Would you like to understand these and who you really are? I went through most of my life chasing after things that once I got them fleetingly made me happy and not understanding who I am and why I do what I do. Now that I understand these things I can create my life intentionally, a life filled with peace of mind, calm and meaning, what I call Impenetrable Joy. Would you like to learn how I got the concussions and how I found my joy? Let's chat. When do you have time next week?
Looking forward to connecting.
Peace, Erin "joy vs. happiness" Mac
