Saturday Morning

Here I sit. A smoothie on one side of my desk, a cup of hot tea on the other. Like two sides of me. Opposite directions, yet without pull or conflict; they exist together, but apart.

I want to learn to balance the different sides of me and combine them into one consistent whole. Part of that comes by being intentional and taking the time I need for myself. I’ve really struggle with that in the past, feeling selfish or overwhelmed with everything I need to do, but if I don’t take the time I need to reset and recharge, then I’m not giving my best.

I have a lot to do today, some work things and projects, things I mostly enjoy, but it’s nice to take a moment to breathe and relax on my own before jumping into the rest of life.

Today I’m calm and thankful. Though I may have thoughts that rush through my mind from time to time, I also have a wonderful support system and positive outlets for the bottled up feelings inside me.

It’s nice to take a moment now and then to not worry about anything. I have a difficult time being present in my life. That’s one of the things I want to be more intentional about this year. I’ve been doing pretty well with my goals/resolutions, I’m taking it one day at a time and I suppose we’ll see where it leads.

Do you have any resolutions this year? I’d love to hear about them in the comments. I hope you all have a lovely Saturday. πŸ™‚

  1. I have been balancing what feels like a three-ring circus for most of my adult years. Three distinct areas of focus and effort take my attention, but I am the same in all places.Right now, it is my family, job, and spiritual work/business. I used to feel burdened by these activities, but now see that without the ability to shift between them I would become bored, unengaged, and eventually withdrawn. Now, I see it more like a three-legged stool, keeping me strong and supported.

    Intentional sounds like a wonderful focus for the year!

      1. it definitely is, because we just think so much! It’s a blessing and a curse, but being mindful is really important for really experiencing life and calming anxiety. Thank you so much, I wish you all the best in this upcoming year and with your goals! πŸ™‚
