Ever feel like you’re on a mad tilting carousel and you’re holding on for dear life! Yep! Me too!
We all take on too much. We want to complete that ‘To Do’ list, answer every email, help friends and family, learn a new skill, read that book, be that amazing parent or perfect partner. You get the idea.
Here’s the thing… we’re only one person – we can’t possibly do it all and ALL AT ONCE!
There just simply is not enough time to fit it all in and to give it our meaningful attention. What’s more when we take on so much – we deplete our energy – which leaves us vulnerable to serious stress and illness.
So I say, give up on trying to do it all. It's time to simplify. Say NO! Don’t try to be perfect. Don’t try to have the most perfect life you can create.
Instead, make your days count. Pump your energy up!
Need some help? (I certainly do!) Here are some ideas:
All of these ideas can be practiced at different times. They are meant to help us focus on where we are. To remind us to be mindful of what we’re holding on to. What we’re using to distract ourselves. Our ideas of perfection. To help us let go.
It takes practice…believe me I know. Unchecked, I am a total control freak! It is so worth the effort though. So…. That thing that sings to your soul…that brings you joy – do more of THAT!
