I have been planning a move from Las Vegas (where I currently live) to NYC.
I didn’t have the best foresight though and ended up packing my schedule way too much.
I was supposed to move May 15th, but I went to a conference the last week of April… came home for a couple days… then went back out to San Francisco for a few days… and then came back May 8, giving me a week to move, plus catch up from the past few weeks.
I thought I was on target. I had a lot of things planned out. I had my assistant cancel all my utilities, hired a house cleaner for one more thorough clean, a gardener for last minute stuff, had someone coming over to help me…
And then on May 14th, I was going to have one big “push” day where a friend, my brother, and I would get everything finished up.
But when I woke up that morning, I realized I was just feeling way too overwhelmed and stressed.
Sure, I could have pushed through it. I know we would’ve gotten everything done in time.
But I am committed to radiating royalty. And radiating royalty doesn’t PUSH.
Radiating royalty means being in flow. Feeling like you’re where you’re supposed to be.
And even if things do feel hard, it feels good hard… like when you’re breaking down, but you know a breakthrough is on the other side…
But this moving scenario just felt like unnecessary stress.
So I said STOP!… and I called everything off for a week.
I contacted my property manager and asked him to change the paperwork.
I had my assistant call all the utilities all over again.
Called the housekeeper, the gardener, the friend helping me move…
And maybe while I wouldn’t have wanted to “inconvenience” people before… everything has felt so much better since.
I made a moving plan last night. I broke up my house into 13 sections, labeled each section, and assigned a couple sections to pack every day this week. I have a plan and it seems so much EASIER now.
I woke up this morning feeling extremely alert. (The past few days before this, I’d been feeling like I was in a walking fog.)
I’ve felt a quiet sense of peace.
And the creativity I’ve been feeling, and my productivity level today… has been just spectacular.
If I would have pushed through the stress on the “push” day, I wouldn’t have just felt stressed that day. I know it would have impacted my entire week, if not my month.
It would have taken a while to recover from the crazy stress I would’ve put on my body.
Instead, I radiated royalty, put myself first, and am feeling amazing. :)
