Life can get pretty overwhelming, can’t it? Not easy to stay motivated when there is always so much to do.
On Sunday morning, literally, I ran to the grocery store, cooked breakfast for my son’s friends, straightened up, replied to emails, paid some bills, sent some texts, bought something online, designed a gift for my niece, wrapped a new baby gift, cared for a sick puppy, scheduled interviews, checked on a lost library book, got my daughter packed for camp, coached her practicing for an upcoming audition, packed for my retreat, and finally got to make myself breakfast. It was not even 10 am.
Being a mom is a lot. It feels like I’m being pulled in a million different directions and often I don’t know where to begin my list of tasks. I have witnessed this steeling more of my energy and delaying my start. It pulls me into my head and out of the present moment. In my monkey mind, it’s all too easy to find something wrong; my inadequacy, my past failures, my exhaustion, the difficulty of the job, and more.
I find it easier to stay motivated for my kids, actually. Tasks I do for them flow more. I start without much thinking because must do it. I think of it as “no choice” even though it is me choosing that this is important.
But those other things: The self-care, or soul purpose, life mission and personal organization things? These get kind of sticky. Maybe because I see them as just effecting me, there is less pressure. More choice. This gives me that moment that gets me in my head.
“…flow more” “..start without much thinking…” “choice…hesitation…head.”
