Unattached to our auto-busyness, I think we’re realizing that we have a lot more power to choose our lives than we formerly thought. We can live our best lives proactively, thoughtfully, and consciously. You’d think we’d be dancing in the streets for realizing this freedom, but we are all such control freaks that freedom’s a bit of a scary concept.
Here’s what I’ve noticed shifting or not in me recently.
No matter how much time I have, I never seem to have enough to read. Still.
If I put an activity on a calendar or a list however, it gets done.
If I plan my meals for the week, I feel freer and often get a little ahead with some prep.
When I exercise, I feel like I gave myself love and wings.
I am using more of what I have on hand and not wanting as much … but new clothing is still necessary.
I am less scared to have my kids home for the Summer than usual because I have found ways that I can get my alone time needs met by setting boundaries and asking others to help.
I still hate obligations like dentist appointments but now they’re more adventurous.
The world is too loud and confusing so I am still in need of no news. I feel what I need to learn the most can only be heard in the silence inside myself.
Compassion is always the way through.
Here’s a post from the same time a year ago and it’s interesting how it’s all the same except I hear the overwhelm.
Hope you are holding up well. I have wonderful achievements coming to share. This Friday is the publishing of an essay I am proud of on the Lessons I Learned in Lockdown. And the 100 Day project will be wrapping up in two weeks!
