I don’t want to multitask.

As you may or may not know, I have been in my hometown doing some healing and ancestral work over the last few weeks. I have been relatively quiet on social media, and only completing work that I had previously committed to.

I have felt the pressure mounting as my trip comes to a close, looking at all the work I was ‘supposed’ to be doing over this time.

Thoughts are coming forward that are not kind about my “lack of prioritizing the business,” “inability to show up when times get tough,” and “not taking full advantage of opportunities that are given to me,” on top of the general triggers and fears associated with life.

This is what I have been conditioned to think in these types of situations.

I have previously accepted as my truth that the grind is necessary for success, and consistency is king. So when I don’t do these things, I feel guilty and like a failure.

And while grind culture and consistency are very effective in our toxic dominant culture – they are not conducive to my wellness.

Social media and being ‘seen’ doesn’t come naturally to me. It is not something that fills my cup. I LOVE running programs, having conversations and sharing information, but getting the word out about those programs takes A LOT of effort for me.

And that’s okay!

The thing is, I don’t want to multitask. Especially multiple things that take a lot of energy like healing work and social media presence.

I want to be here now. Not in twelve places at once.

So I have honoured that.

And now I feel those oh so present pieces of conditioning stepping forward: guilt, lack of worthiness, shame.

So let’s normalize talking about this! Because I know I’m not the only one.

This is the kind of toxicity that I move to release in this world, with every step that I take.

So yes, I am going to push my two upcoming offerings out by one week each.

 

👉The FREE Rest and Digest program will now be launching on October 12. (Click here to gain access!)

👉The next round of Seek Sanctuary, an 8 week private container, will now be launching on October 26. (Click here to apply now!)

 

We also get to normalize this kind of flexibility for those around us, in our personal lives and professionally.

Does this shift reflect poorly on my business and/or on me? Do I seem like a ‘flake?’ Or can you see me living my message and honouring my body above the pressures of society, giving you permission to do the same?

These are two sides of the same coin, the only difference is your perspective.

Please comment your thoughts on multitasking or anything that is on your heart below! Let’s keep this conversation going.

 

Sending you so much love,

Tara
