I needed direction.
I knew what my quality of life was. I wanted more interactions. I wanted more connections. I wanted to hear people’s stories. I wanted to be the megaphone for those who were afraid to speak. I could not achieve this if I was not right with myself. I could not start seeking fulfilment when I had no foundation. I would ran the risk of been off balance. I was either helping and been the best for others or shutting them out and been selfish. Either extremes were not healthy.
My first step was to cut of all the distraction. I knew my triggers. Consuming things that made me feel as though I needed to buy or compete for a lifestyle I had no desire of living had to go. I unsubscribed from a lot of my YouTube subscriptions. Many of them were beauty and hair related. I got rid of my on-line shopping apps. I would spend hours browsing their catalogues. I got rid of social media apps as well. I assigned time to go on social media and regularly update it. Immediately after I got rid of all my triggers I was off my phone more. I started paying attention to the people in front of me. I was not been distracted by updates that were really deviating from the quality of life I wanted to achieve.
My second step was to define what is important to me. My health came right at the top. This includes my physical as well as my mental health. If those two are not in check I cannot be a good anything. There have been countless times I have pushed my body too much and it retaliated.
Right after health was myself. I had to replenish myself everyday. If I did not I ran the risk of self-sacrificing again. I needed to spend everyday with myself doing something I loved to do.
Next was now my relationships. I had to define what kind of relationships I want in my life. I had to identify what kind of people will be “triggers” who will eventually distract me from my happy. I had to realize there are people who are constant takers and the more you give the more they will take. I needed people who will also replenish my life.
Lastly, it was my job. Inteco is now what I do not who I am. In the recent past I breathed and lived Inteco. It was I and I was it. There was no break in the entities. It was not healthy for me and sustainable for Inteco. I have learned to give responsibilities to others. I have learned how to clock out. I have learned Inteco will still be there tomorrow.
Now that I had a definition I needed rules,
Unitl next time,
