Good morning, my friend and welcome back to the living in sunshine podcast. My name is Maddy, and I’m so happy that you are tuning in for a brand new episode. I’m super excited for this week’s episode because it is a highlight reel chat, my favorite ones to record because I leave you hopefully feeling energized, excited feeling like you just got a quick swift kick in the BU TT and ready to go and tackle all the things but before I give you a very critical permission slip that I think every woman needs to hear at the start of every single year. And honestly multiple times a year. I hope you revisit this episode honest to god I really do. Before I give you that permission slip though, I need to ask you a question. Are you happy Hustler, a joy seeker, a purpose pursuer or a dream chaser. Let me know send me a message over on Instagram what you are. And if you’re like, I have no idea what you’re talking about, then you probably have not taken our free living and sunshine personality survey, which I’m not sure why you haven’t done that unless this is the first time you’re hearing of it, which if it is, this is how you need to take it. So I have identified four very specific personalities within the living in Sunshine Community. Like I said they already happy Hustler, Joy seeker purpose pursuer and Dream Chaser. And with those four personalities that come incredible strengths and superpowers and an attribute that I love, and I’m obsessed with. But there are also things that these personalities get stuck on. And with those spaces that you get stuck because of the personality that you are, I have created tailored to you resources, supports, trainings, calls, podcast episodes, all of these things that are going to help you to get unstuck from where you currently are, and down the road towards a life that you are obsessed with one that brings you joy, and most importantly, one that you’re excited to wake up and live every single day. So if you’re not sure what your personality is yet for 2024, head to living the letter n sunshine.com/survey. And take the personality survey right now it’s more of a quiz less of a survey, think BuzzFeed early 2010 survey with Taylor Swift gifts and Gilmore Girl references all of these really fun things, it’s going to take you less than 60 seconds to do. And then from there, you will get tailored to you results and supports as I mentioned, based on your personality. So again, if you haven’t already discovered what your secret superpower is, in which of the four personalities you are head to living in sunshine.com/survey to take the survey now. I’ll also link it down in the show notes. It’s also linked over in my Instagram bio in case you follow me over there. And once you get your results, let me know if you feel like they fit to you over on Instagram. Alright, now that my little reminder is out of the way. Let’s go ahead and dig into today’s permission slip. Okay, so this is a permission slip that I feel like every single human being both men and women, but this was a space for the girlies. So if you’re a boy, hey, I think you’re a little lost. And the permission slip that I want you to hear is in case you are currently feeling super stressed about doing it all in 2024. Okay, now I know that in this time of year, we are getting a lot of messages online, and the podcast we listened to in our email inbox on TV and commercials, yada yada about all of these things that we need to get done in 2024. Right, hit your financial goals, get in the best shape of your life. Go on that amazing trip with your husband, brother, Aruba, whatever it might be. There is so much messaging right now about getting it all done. And I just want to say that if you are feeling overwhelmed, or stressed because of these messages, I totally see you and I am with you. And I want you to know that it’s okay to feel overwhelmed and that it’s okay to feel stressed because of this messaging, right. We are slammed and inundated with by this purchase that get this on sale from like November through the end of December. And then January hits and we’re slammed with this message of Go Go Go Do do do achieve achieve achieve. If you don’t get it all done, you’re not good enough. You’re not trying hard enough. You’re not working hard enough, when that could not be further from the truth. Right? Because here Here’s the thing, here is my truth. And here’s a truth that I hope becomes your truth. You can do it all. But you don’t need to do it all right now. Right? You don’t need to change your entire life. Right now. You don’t need to change your whole life, or or hit all of your goals. In the first month of the year. There are 12 months of the year for a reason. The years and the seasons, and the days and the weeks all repeat for a reason. We are not meant to do it all right now at the same time, you can do it all. But you don’t need to do it all right now. Right? And it’s okay to say, I will get there. I’m just not doing it right now. Because I’m focusing on this, because I am going to do this first because I don’t have the mental capacity for that because I am overscheduled. Right? Have you ever felt like the people in your life just don’t understand the dream that you have on your heart? Or even the desire that you have to be more joyful or intentional or even just playing happy? Like wife is good enough? Why do you need more? Right? Well, my friend if this is you, I have something special just for you. The Sunshine squad community is your go to place for that validation that you’re searching for, to know that you aren’t crazy for wanting more, and that you aren’t alone in that desire either.

In the sunshine squad community, you get continued guidance from me that you need to make your dreams a reality, a community of women who get it, and the steps that you need to make your life something that you’re totally obsessed with.

And my friend, I can’t wait to see you inside of the sunshine squad. You don’t have to try to keep up with anyone else. Because the fact of the matter is, is you’re not running their race. You’re running yours. And life isn’t even a race. You know what I mean? Like life is not a race. If there’s no winner, we all end up in the same place at the end of it all. Anyway, if you know what I’m saying. right not to be a downer. But just to be honest, right? There’s no reason to feel like we need to do it. All right, this second, it’s not possible. And there. This is why things that I’m doing in my own business, launching programs, doing group coaching stuff, all of the all of these different things. I’m not starting them in January, because we’re all already overwhelmed. No one has extra space right now. We’re recovering from the holidays. We’re getting back to our normal work routine. We’re getting our kids back to school, we’re resetting, we’re setting goals, we’re trying to get started on those goals, we’re trying to reflect on 2023 We’re trying to do all these things. No one has space for anything else. Right. And if 2024 is a year that you are working to actively change, to be able to grow and get better, and pursue those goals or those dreams that you’ve had on your heart for a really, really long time. I love that for you, right? But I want you to know that it’s okay. If you change over time, instead of overnight. We don’t need to do it all overnight. It’s not possible. It’s physically impossible for us to change our whole lives overnight, or within a week or within a month. It’s not sustainable. It’s just not sustainable. So if you are currently feeling super stressed about doing it all or getting it all done, or or whatever it might be, take a moment to breathe. And take a moment for yourself to say, I don’t have to do it all right now. I have time. I will get there. But I need to focus here on this one goal on this one area of my life on this one passion of mine before I get there, and that’s okay. Because I’m not competing with other people. I’m not competing with myself. And I’m not going to go into 2020 for making myself feel guilty or ashamed or bad, because I’m not doing it all at the same time. Okay. And I hope that this helps at least one of you listening today to know that what you’re doing is enough, and what you’re doing is admirable enough. Even if what you’re doing is trying to get up half an hour earlier, every single day, or what you’re trying to do is drink enough water. Right? Or remember to call your grandma small things. They don’t have to be huge to be life changing. Okay? Know that I love you know that you are doing incredible things and I know that you have set incredible goals for yourself for 2024.
