Take Time to Reflect!

I have spent the past few days in one of my favorite places, Wildwood NJ. My fiancee could tell that I was starting to get burned out and needed a small break. I couldn’t see it at the time, but she couldn’t have been more right!

I was stressed out about work, finances, weight loss ups and downs, etc. I have had a chance to clear my mind and look at my life from more of a birds eye view. I was going through the day to day grind and I wasn’t able to see the forest through the trees! That is, I was working so hard without stopping, that I wasn’t able to see the big picture of what was going on.

What I personally realized, is that I have been spending way too much time on the wrong things. When I sat back and assessed my life, I realized that I was working really hard in a direction towards goals that I do not want, and not putting enough energy into achieving my goals and dreams. It left me feeling unsatisfied and angry. I have a much better idea of what I am going to stop doing, and what I am going to spend much more time doing in its place!

Never stop believing in yourself! Talk to you soon 🙂

  1. Dan, this is a version of what I’m experiencing. I have been some things for a while, that initially were beneficial; however, even though these things formerly served a purpose in my life, I have to stop putting time and energy into them because they no longer are serving the goals for which I am reaching. Thanks for the post!

  2. In the pause, we find clarity of direction. …. I’m glad you found the time to reflect. It is so important for us in this busy world of ours. If only it was part of our daily lives, like coffee or air ❤

  3. Awesome so good for you! I recently went away for my birthday, and very similar to your post I learned a lot. I have since encouraged my husband to go away, I see he’s burnt out. How can I encourage him better to go? Please share
