I am afraid to talk about the crushing pressure to get this right.
I am afraid to talk about how I'm struggling with how to best support my child's needs.
I am afraid to talk about how my mind runs like a furious storm of ideas, worries, tasks, and execution plans at all times. ☔️ 🌪️ 🌀
I am afraid to admit that I've completely overscheduled myself from top to bottom for weeks and weeks with no end in sight. 🗓️
Yet, it's not my style to bitch and complain about it.
Best to keep it light, bright, and pleasant, right? ☀️
Nobody likes a Debbie Downer. Or Needy Nelly. I mean, I certainly don't. 🙄
But listen, it's not all bad here.
My Type-A a*s is celebrating ALL of this! 🎊 🎉 🎈 Workaholism is like an old overloved sweater it's just too comfy to get rid of! 🤗
And here's the cool part.
If you relate to this as you too are juggling all the plates and afraid one will break, I want to offer you what I am offering myself --- grace.
But NOT just grace to be kind and compassionate to yourself - YES, definitely do that.
GRACE to not feel pressured to fix it all in one swoop.
Big systemic changes to your internal operating system (plus maybe some outdated software - i.e. cultural programming) happen in small micro-choices.
Being more intentional with opening up a little more space, little by little and giving myself permission to say NO to what doesn't serve filling my cup back up again.
INVITATION: Where have you been beating yourself up too much lately? What does grace look like for you in terms of micro-choices to make more nourishing and restorative choices? Who is someone you can confide in that will listen without judgment and help you feel heard?
