As someone who loves a challenge and loves goal setting, there comes a time in your life when it feels more like a burden than motivation.
It’s been years of lockdowns, isolations, and mental fatigue, the thought of goals, is honestly no longer motivating.
I had plans to run the year (2022km), again this year. But the constant reminder of “you are xx km’s behind your goal”, was bringing me down.
Then I thought about it. Quitting this goal doesn’t make me less of a person. I’ve achieved this goal in the past, I know I can do it, but it’s more of the question do I want to (again).
At the end of the day, if the thing you are doing is no longer bringing you joy, then it’s ok to let it go. You can pick it up again when you are ready, no matter how long it takes. It will be there.
Letting go, will give you a sense of peace, and it’s ok, you are okay. Your worth hasn’t changed. You are still amazing.
