This a bit of a reblog/rehashed blog today. I remembered that I wrote about this six years ago as I was feeling overwhelmed on the weekend. Overwhelmed at all the awesome things I had going on. Overwhelmed with how I could fit them all in and still feel calm. I like knowing that I get certain things done each day ….. a routine if you like but not with any set time frame but lately it is a rush to get those things done and everything else that is going on.
This is a first-world, privileged problem to be sure yet that doesn’t make it feel any less real. Sometimes I have to pinch myself a bit and say ‘WTF …. you have so much. If there is too much going on let go of something.’ However this is where my biggest fault lies …. I’m useless at letting go especially when I’m enjoying it all!! I like to think I’m getting better on the material side however that internal voice that keeps telling me that I need to do more is constant. I get ideas and then I want to make them a reality even when they push my boundaries. As a consequence I sign myself up to too may things or decide I want to get too many things done in a certain time frame …. I accept the free language course, I plan a workshop, I agree to go out, I offer to take people places, I write that blog – yay, doing that ;), I work on writing my book, bake for my Infant Massage class, I work on an upcoming EFT course all at the same time as home-schooling, taxing themselves, keeping house and trying to keep sane!
Yep … so really feeling like I am drowning in goodness at the moment. How do you let go of all that goodness though? How do I prioritize which is deserving of attention first? Usually it is the loudest ones that get first dibs … themselves that is ;). So here I am sharing a thought instead driving someone somewhere or preparing for this weekend’s workshop. Here I am taking a breath and letting go of all the demands for the next little bit to enjoy sitting down with a book while the rain comes down outside, the baking cools and the washing spins away.
I hope that if you’re reading this and feeling the same you can join me in my ‘life-ring’ of rest … before diving back into it all.
