Doing things to improve myself

I am taking control of my life and have been  on a journey to refocus, determine what direction I want to go and heal myself. I have such an intense year and I just felt completely drained.

This week I went to a naturopath and it was really interesting. I overwhelmed her with my medical history, recent events in my life and why I came to see her. She checked my blood pressure, my eyes and a few things. I am running on empty, am completely stressed and while I am physically strong, I really should not be standing. How my body has not given up before now is amazing.

She gave me some herbs, an eating plan and I see her again in 3 weeks for a more thorough check up.

I saw my psychologist this week too. He gave me a few things to try to help with my sleep. It'll be interesting to see how it all works. He says I have made amazing progress and am handling thing very well.

I have been doing a lot of reading and thinking lately too. Trying to learn more about myself, what I really want and how I want to be living my life. I know that the life I have now, while in many ways it is good, it is not what I want.

I am making small changes and have been learning a lot about which direction I want to take. It is quite different from what I have been doing the past few years, but I am excited about where it will take me.

I am also going to be seeing a kinesiologist, getting regular massage and just trying to slow down and fix myself. I work and think at a million miles a second and that is not healthy. My psychologist said I have come a long way, but it is extremely difficult to slow down when you have an ADHD brain. I like that he doesn't refer to me as being ADHD but rather that I have ADHD traits/thought patterns/and ADHD brain.

What does this mean and why am I telling you?

I am not 100% sure I want to continue on the path I am on moneywise. I know I can be a millionaire by 30. I know I will be financially free. I also know that my health, improving my mental and physical health, my daughters and living my ideal life are all more important to me than money.

I still want to be financially free and will be. It's just that won't be as important in my life any more I don't think.

  1. I think it is very interesting you have come to this and whilst we would all like to have a million dollars in the bank because it buys us freedom I think your decision to focus on healing yourself and spending time with your kids and living where you want to build a life is great. They say money can't buy happiness but money worries are horrible and it certainly is easier with money but valuing right here right now is just as important as building your financial future. I wish you well and you are doing extremely well all things considered. Regards Kathy A, Brisbane, Australia

  2. Thank you Kathy :) It has been interesting, the change in myself over the past few months due to everything. I like where it has taken me, although I didn't like what happened. I feel more calm and balanced and sure now.
    Of course, I think it is easier now to focus on myself/my family and not worry so much about money because I have made different income streams because of this blog and where it has taken me.
    Thanks :)
