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. 🙂
