So, I noticed something.
Actually, my husband pointed it out to me.
I’ve not been so good at being present lately. And I must confess, it’s starting to bother me…
I have gotten overwhelmed, bogged down, and feeling way too busy.
Busy can be a really good thing….or it can be a really bad thing.
I have been late to answer emails, things have been falling through the cracks, I am double booking appointments and even lunch dates with friends. I have even been late to some of these said appointments. (GASP! I hate it when people are late and don’t respect my time.)
Ok…so why do I write about this sudden business of being busy?
Because now I know, it’s time to start reconsidering things that I cannot take on…
It’s time to start refocusing and finding my center again.
I also find that because of this major shift in my energy and my scatterbrainedness…it’s also difficult to organize my thoughts…and that makes it difficult to write…
Some of the things I thought of doing were:
- disconnecting for a few hours a day from social media
- hanging with some girlfriends to get recharged
- getting creative in the kitchen
- connecting with my kiddos without electronics
- spending some one on one time with Nino
- start sifting and sorting for the move ahead
- community service
- getting back on the mat in my home studio, EVOLVE
I think that part of the reason why I may be so unsettled is because there are some big changes around the corner for my family and I may even be a little apprehensive about all the work that moving will entail.
When you are getting lost in the fray, what do you do to come back to center?
*hugs* Because, I feel the same way. I can’t even say hi to you on Viber or Facebook due to my crazy schedule!
But, lately I’ve been thinking of giving some time for myself. A time for everything and everyone.
Just like you, I am planning to be offline for few hours and spend more time with the kids and Mike.
I also learned to say no to my clients if it entails pressure for my family and I.
With that, let me tell you that I miss you na! hahaha..
Nino drink, please? 🙂
AW! I miss you too Mills! Let’s have that drink soon 🙂
It’s always important to pause for a while, evaluate what you have on your plate and determine which ones would be more meaningful to take on, meaningful not just for yourself, but for the people you care for.
Easier said than done ofcourse but it helps… I think. Haha!
Surely it does…
It’s important to: Stop. Look. Listen. And tune in…
Thanks for stopping by Jay 🙂
