do more be productive Paula Melissa


Reading Time: 2 minutes

If you’ve been with my blog and I for a few years now, you’ll know I have a little obsession with being productive. And by little, I mean big. Huge. Gigantic. And another other synonyms you can think of.

I like to have things to do and get things done. I am obsessed with being efficient and being organised. I like people wondering how I can do so much and wear so many hats.

Let me let you in on a little secret… I can’t. I can’t do so many things and my head is tired from wearing so many hats. So, I’m not doing it anymore.

Recently, I put out a video on my YouTube channel as a form of encouragement to others, but the funny thing is, when I was editing it and watching it back, I realised it was for me. I was preaching a sermon I needed to hear.

I was working working working to the point of mental exhaustion more times than not. So determined to see this pandemic as a blessing in disguise, I filled all my elusive ‘time back’ with stuff. And I am done with that.

I say this tweet by Chante Joseph and panicked a little bit because that’s how I’ve felt for literally the last two months.

But I am taking a stand. No more. I will rest. I will chill. I will not see my value in how much I do. I will work and control what I can work on and control and leave all that I can’t work on and control.

And that’s okay.
