Have you ever felt like everything you need time for has to fit perfectly into each day? Sometimes it may feel like you’re playing Tetris in order for the day to end up the way we want it to.
As a career mom, I used to feel frustrated, exhausted, and guilty always wishing there was more time in a day.
Stuff happens, right? It happens every day at work and home, seemingly always adding another thing we have to do to the list, UGH! If we only had MORE time!
What if we could add some more time to our day? What might that additional time do for us?
It can feel like we can’t have control over the ‘stuff’ that happens. Well, that ‘stuff’ represents the facts we can’t change.
We can stay where we are feeling exasperated and fatigued or permit ourselves to choose how we see those facts, no matter what the realities are. What we can control is how we feel, how we think, and choosing what option feels best for us in that moment.
Imagine for a moment, what it might feel like if we could have 100% control over HOW we experience our day.
What comes up for you as you imagine this? How might this feel different?
Focusing on what is positive can feel calmer which leads to more energy and feeling healthier making it easier to bounce back when the pieces of time don’t seem to fit perfectly.
Every day has plenty of time for what’s most important because we get to choose what’s important and how we CHOOSE to see it.
Consider noticing how it may feel when YOU choose HOW to react when ‘stuff’ happens.
What might be one small thing we can add to the top of our list that is strictly for “ME” time to help boost our flexibility and enjoy each day? Remember, we get to choose!
