Travelers who journey through the desert depend on an oasis for survival. After trekking through the dry heat, it is essential to rest under the shade, refresh in the cool water, and reflect on their journey thus far. It not only resets the motivation to continue on, but allows for adjusting plans for the greatest success moving forward.
As you walk through the desert of life, may you always find your oasis – a place where you feel safety and peace among the hustle and bustle. Where you can refresh your mind and spirit to have the capacity and strategy to keep going. Your oasis should be your sanctuary, and each moment spent here should gravitate you to something that makes you feel fulfilled.
In order to reap the benefits of your oasis, you first must find and create an oasis for yourself. This is arguably the most important step, which is why we’ve put so much emphasis on it in our recent blogs. Because if you’re not creating the sense of peace you want to harvest, how can you enjoy it?
With how fast the world tends to move, we often find ourselves taking on more than we can handle. Juggling the many aspects of life without making time for yourself can lead to burnout and a foggy mindset, which actually results in being LESS productive long-term. In order to reach our goals, bring our best efforts, and be the greatest versions we can be, we must first prioritize the oasis within.
Spending time in the oasis you’ve created for yourself will open the opportunity for that fog to clear in your mind, allowing you to find the peace within and the focus you need for the journey ahead.
You deserve this sense of peace. Every single day. You deserve to find balance in your life.
Everyone’s circumstances will be different and each oasis will vary, but they all serve the same purpose: to give you the fuel you need to keep going to reach your ultimate fulfillment.
If you find that making time to visit your oasis is difficult, just remember quality is more important than quantity. The amount of time spent in your oasis isn’t as important as the act of being present in it, as long as you’re fully immersing yourself in each moment. Remembering this will allow you the opportunity to refuel and feel refreshed, manifesting greater possibilities for fulfillment in the future.
