Set Down The Burden… And Get Back in Balance

 In Happiness, Self-Care & Self-Sustainability, Wisdom Blog

Watch this video to find and set down the burden weighing you down.

While you may not like to admit this, somewhere in your life you are creating stress, pressure and suffering because of the heavy BURDENS you say yes to – in your relationships, work, home, everywhere. They are things that at one point you wanted to do… things you feel like you should do or have to do… things you think you need to have with you… things you can’t let go of… things that add extra weight and take up extra space in your mental, emotional and physical fields.

Until one day, all that extra weight eventually just topples your cart over, and your life and experience goes WHOOSH out of balance. Just like this poor fella below.

Topple Over with Burden

So today love, I want to know what burden is creating stress, suffering and stuckness for you… are you…

Over giving?
Over caring?
Over consuming?
Holding on to stuff you don’t need?
Taking over responsiblity?
Carrying too much, more than you need or more than your share?

Be honest with yourself. It’s not easy to see or admit the places where we over give, stuff, consume, care – because we THINK we need to do it this way — we’ve convinced ourselves that we need this stuff, we have to give this much, we have to take it on — but at what cost? You and I both know that extra weight and burden of any kind is NOT sustainable in the long term for you or any of us. You have to get your scales back into balance where you have ENOUGH not EXCESS… where you are giving enough, not too much… you get the picture.

So today, I invite you to take an act of self-love — to set this burden down — to let go of the extra weight you are carrying – and readjust the scales so they are in balance to what is healthy, good and right for you.

Watch the short but mighty video – where I share how I set my burden down to avoid making stress for me and then I’ll run you through the same process so you can set yours down too – in less than 4 minutes! That’s a good ROI!

Then use these questions to take a self-love stand for yourself, set the extra weight down and readjust your internal scales, so the outside can respond – remembering that all shift happens on the inside first.

1. “I’ve been OVER… ”
2. “It’s costing me…”
3. “Enough would be…”

And as a bonus question, ask WHAT DO I NEED???

Okay me first… I’ve been OVER PACKING, lugging way more stuff with me than I really need. It’s been costing me stress in all kinds of ways. Enough would be just bringing enough with me on my trip, one small roller and one carry on and trusting that I will have what i need… that i have enough, and if I need something I can get it. What i need is a suitcase that makes this easy.

Noah wanted to chime in too…I’ve been OVER FOCUSED on Christine. It’s costing me self actualization and self care. Enough would be portioning out part of the day for Christine and our work and part of the day for me. I need a trip to Thailand by myself!

OKAY NOW YOUR TURN… pause between each question and really let yourself set this down! Big burdens or small – they all take up space.
