This is gratitude that I squeezed out of a gripe!
I have been reminding myself lately that 'busy is not a badge of honor.' I am nearly always tempted to plan and work CONSTANTLY!!!! It is SO easy to slip from productive to overwhelmed.
Very often, it is easier to quiet my inner chatter by staying busy as opposed to 'being with' the calm and quiet. I joke about my ADHD brain driving me into action so often but really, it's not that much of a joke. Even when I am tired and wanting to chill out, relaxing can be more challenging than knocking out my to-do list.
Right now, as I sit in a cafe attempting to multitask, I am laughing at myself. I am bouncing from tab to tab and inbox to inbox trying to tackle 90 things and not finishing one of them! I start one thing that reminds me of another I forgot. I take my hands off the keyboard to write on my to-do list. I drop the list to pick up my phone then back to the keyboard!
GAH! Are you dizzy yet???
So I am grateful that I cannot do it all!
I am grateful for these two hands.
I am grateful to be physically reminded that it is all designed perfectly to go the way that it will go.
I am feeling thankful for reminders of my humanity and to chill the eff out!
It'll get done. It'll be fine. I am on my way no matter how it goes or how fast.
So here I am. Taking a break to check in with you lovers.
In case anyone else needs the reminder. Chill the eff out!
Live the life you love by slowing down long enough to realize, this IS life. Right here, right now.
