Behind the Scenes is about blogging, connecting. It’s on how to make your blog look great. It’s creative inspiration.
But, what if it’s more than that?
What if it confronted me with “me”? And made me realize that I’m still a long way from feeling enough? From learning to Trust the Process.
I know, I know, Kim & Xanthe almost said it every class: “at your own pace…. “
But still, as a perfectionist and a control person recovering from a burnout, I was put to the test.
I was on vacation when class started, so I had to catch up. Already from the beginning there was this “urge” inside of me to gain on lost time, fast. I wanted to participate in every mission, comment, visit the blogs...
I felt I had to be in front of my computer screen. There was this constant need to do something, create…
At the end of week 3, one week to go, I halted myself: “Hey this doesn’t feel right, this has to be fun. It can not be a ‘must do’, it must be a ‘love do’.” – “Why don’t I take Kim & Xanthe’s advice to take it easy? Why don’t I trust their process?”
Maybe it’s a typical burnout recovery symptom. And well, control persons + trusting processes are kind of contradictory.
My brain knows that I have to stop before I reach my limits, that enough is… well…(good) enough. But for my feeling it’s soooo difficult.
Anyway, this class confronted me with the fact that “I was doing it again!”
So, I shifted to a lower gear, re-read Kim’s & Xanthe’s prompts to take my time, put on Joshua Radin’s “Everything’ll be Alright” and wrote this little piece.
This is so much more than an e-course on blogging….
