Let me explain what I mean…
What if things happen in life that force you to cancel your plans, change your plans many times and force you to head into a new direction that you didn’t choose?
I’m sure that a lot of you understand this confusing feeling. A lot of us feel this way in 2020 with the ongoing uncertainty caused by the world pandemic.
My trajectory was derailed a couple of times before the pandemic has even started. From a family tragedy to coming face to face with burnout a couple of times, a few challenging business decisions and broken partnerships, to romantic struggles and more family issues… That’s a quick summary of the few couples of years before we hit 2020.
Every time a new obstacle came my way, I managed to navigate through the strongest winds and waves, I pushed through, I survived, I shook it off, made a plan and continued heading forward. At that point, it felt that I have to stay in the motion, keep going, change direction, make a new plan. Keep going…
2020 made me really pause. I couldn’t just keep going, I gad to hit the breaks, stop and reflect.
I’m still struggling to simply sit still and reflect, I tend to move here and there too much and I lose focus because I feel like I need to be in action all the time.
So, what’s the point?
Right now, I don’t have the solution, But I really wanted to open up the conversation and start sharing a little more of my journey again. And I also hope that it helps someone who might be feeling the same way and who’s questioning what to do next, how to overcome this feeling, how to ‘get back on track’.
At the beginning of my freelance journey, I got so used to sharing my thoughts and experiences. That was before all these turbulent events, but in the past year I really struggled with headspace and clarity and it felt impossible to share as I had no idea where to even start.
So I’m trying not to overthink it. I’m simply putting it out there and opening up a new conversation again. Let’s see how it goes.
It would be great to see where you’re at, how your 2020 has been and where you’re mentally and where your heading in the future…
