Isn’t it funny, your ‘to-do’ list is endless and there are even more demands placed on you, resulting in you feeing completely overwhelmed and then the most teeniest of things blows into an hour long saga like the pen won’t work, you can’t find the refill, you are scrummaging through the endless crappy pens, pencils, the kids stationary and you feel like you are wasting even more time… Sound Familiar?
What is really going on here? Is it about how busy you are? Is it about the overwhelm? Is it about saying ‘no’? Is it about the meaning behind the pen not working? Who knows? The bigger overarching question from an esoteric view is what do you need to learn from this? And the only way you will learn is to….
FOCUS ON WHAT IS IMPORTANT
We can make our lives overcomplicated and drama filled, or we can take notice of what we notice. If we do not stop, slow down and focus we will never stop these crazy overwhelming feelings related to these moments.
It feels like the world has been forced to pause, some people/places/cities are in lockdown/ isolation, call it what you will, others have lost their jobs, others are trying to juggle 50 things at home in a given minute. If we don’t use this time wisely, we will stay on repeat regardless of whether it is related to a pandemic or to the teeniest things that can throw our day off.
Stop, Slow down, Focus on what is important and have a great day.
