Time



When I get overwhelmed with too much work and not enough play, I get cranky. I forget who I am and what is important. Lately, I have been trying something new, I take each moment as it comes, I don't project into the day or week all I have to do, (well, I do project for a minute and then I feel discomfort which reminds me to stay in the moment) when I stay in the moment I feel like I have plenty of time, and then I relax and things go much smoother. Have you ever found that you get really tired if you think about all you have to do? Instead, just do the task at hand and don't worry about the rest. It all gets done. This has been a hard one for me to get, but I am getting it. I just thought I would share this with all my overworked bloggy friends :-).Happy Thursday. XOXO

Hell! I get tired when I think about getting up off the couch!!

Cute Willowtree. When I first began meditating I kept a paper by my side because so many thoughts came up (good ideas too) of things to do that i didnt want to let them go.

I do try to return to the present moment much of the time. I also though keep lists of things to do in the week ahead and another list of larger game plan things to do. that gets the stuff out of my head and makes it easier to return to the now.

Good advise! I try to live that way most of the time nowadays!

Have a nice weekend :-)

Thanks for sharing that Annie. It's been one of those weeks where I've been fretting about all that needs to be done and how I will have the time and energy to get it all done.

You are thinking well and remembering the moments to get you thru the trying times.

I am visiting family in Oregon for my mom's 80th and there was a big family blow up yesterday that had been festering for months.

I am having trouble forgetting the hurtful words thrown about by my mom and 'dad' and my sis and her husband.

I have one more day here and then I think a big session with my therapist...
