Time is ticking.
In one week my family embarks on the next chapter in our life!
We go south to Georgetown, Texas!
Yet my mind is whirling with all that I have done and all I still need to do. I don’t have enough hours in each day to see friends, pack, follow-up appointments with clients/customers, and sooo much more!
What keeps me from pushing too hard? From losing focus? From not living in the moment?
Many things…but the biggest is the gift of having HASHIMOTOS!
Some may find it a daunting autoimmune disease but I do not (most of the time). I have found it to be a gift especially in times like this. It reminds me to connect to the situation.
I MUST be mindful of each choice. I CANNOT try to “muscle” through a day of juggling too many things, and too little sleep, like I once did before Hashimoto’s. That is where the blessing is. I don’t have the “luxury” of being abusive to my health. And I MUST remember each day I AM MIND, BODY, SOUL, SPIRIT……and they all work in harmony for optimal health!
So today my focus is meeting for a follow up appointment with a new oiler. I will take my daughter to have her braces taken off. Then I will have my adoration hour with Jesus for the last time at my Amarillo parish, St. Thomas the Apostle. And nothing else! In between these three appointments I will stay focused on living and breathing with Cheer, Peace, and Serenity! How?
I continually bind my will into HIS WILL!
I will spend moments sitting and sipping tea while I read or listen to an audiobook.
I will go for a nice relaxing walk with my hubby at the end of the day.
I will not try to squeeze in extra packing today.
I will not try to make any more oiler coaching appointments.
I will not make promises to others that I know is not possible for this day.
AND…..I WILL NOT DEPRIVE MYSELF OF SLEEP!
Do you try to push through things so hard to forget to connect to what your mind body soul spirit really need in the moment!?
Sit with this….pray about this….journal about it…..and share/connect with me about it!
Many blessings and hugs my dear followers….friends….family….
