Simple words yet so many of us don’t. I’m Learning this one and making changes. For so long I didn’t do what was best for me because of others and fear of letting people down. Now that I’m getting older (and hopefully more wise) these words ring so much more true for me. Change is definitely coming. Haven’t quit figured out what but I’m ready to take action and do what’s best for my family and me 💕 #timeforchange#takecareofyourself#makingchanges#lifeisbeautiful
This last week has been one of the hardest weeks I've had in a very long time. I had zero motivation, I wasn't sleeping or eating much, didn't want to get out of bed, wasnt able to truly be present, basically I was barely functioning. I spent the week dodging people and events because being the normal Joy seemed literally impossible. I didn't speak up. I was face to face with friends I knew I could talk to and yet I couldn't. I have friends that are a text or call away from being with me in my mess yet I didn't reach out. Why do we choose to do it alone? For me it was because I couldn't explain why I was where I was, all I knew is that I was living in the dark and I hated it. Last night while journaling I wrote "God, let me see the light in all of this darkness." this morning I open my bible to this. In the darkness there is light that cannot be overcome. Jesus, Jesus, you make the darkness tremble. Such a sweet much needed reminder.
Focus is always an issue these days, as it seems, ten thousand things are happening today!
As mom, tending to all with the mindset of multi-tasking is at hand. When I stop and truly embrace this, admittedly, I prioritize what’s really important to me.
Sure, the to-do lists long and everything is pulling at me, but today, I give my attention to what is really important…above all else - kids, husband, work deadlines, I stop to give attention, even for 5 minutes to come back to breathing …for me.
Sane and balanced is not enough. I optimize my living through breathing deeply. ***7 Benefits of Deep Breathing: Now available at: http://bit.ly/2ICcHAk*** Also in bio link
How about you? How do you slow down to be present to what is?
