don't let unrealistic expectations overshadow the fulfillment of your achievements

Nature is what brings me to ground level. - Here’s an analogy I found today That helped me reground myself in the present: It’s as if I ride life on an elevator from below the ground to up in the skies. Lately I haven’t been riding well, and it makes me feel like I live down below where I have no value to anyone, not even myself. It’s not necessary about the riding or any other achievements or un achievements but it’s as if nothing I do is really satisfying to me. when I feel that way I start to spiral and go back into old self destructing behaviours. This would be the equivalent to pushing the bottom of the elevator to the levels below. The battle between rationality and keep pressing on the down buttons is super strong in my head at these moments. - For me getting out in the nature helps finding peace and fun again. Like pressing the buttons to the up ground levels ! - sometimes it’s a slow process, sometimes it’s goes by quick! - But it’s a great image to meditate on 🙃 So for the next few days I’ll be closing my eyes and focusing on the thoughts of a glass elevator that reaches from far below to way up in the air ☁️🌥⛅️🌤☀️ - if you find that it could also help you! go ahead and find a nice place to sit and feel the warmth of the sun as you rise back to peacefulness 😘
