I did—multiple times.
For me, self-improvement is sexy, powerful and exciting. It makes me feel good. It gives me the feeling of progression.
But there is a dark side of it that can rip off some of the benefits if left uncontrolled.
When I focus too much on improving myself, I forget to turn around, notice how much I have grown and been deeply grateful for it. I fail to appreciate what I have achieved so far and enjoy hanging out with work, hobbies, and loved ones.
I forget that there is nothing I need to change, do, be, or have to be happy 🙂
If this resonates with you, I invite you to deal with it the same way I do: by taking self-improvement vacations.
A week, a few days, a Sunday. Whatever works for you. Take regularly some time in which you don’t try to change, improve, or fix yourself – just enjoy where you are at in life, appreciating all the way you have already covered.
