Like I have way more to do than I will ever have time to get it done. Like I keep making promises to myself and others that I can’t keep. Like I’m barely staying above water and I can’t breathe!!!
I remember something I read in Brian Tracy’s book Eat That Frog…
You will never have enough time to do everything you want to do. The sooner you realize that, the sooner you can let go of the expectation and forgive yourself for not doing it all!!
I was of course paraphrasing since I haven’t read that book in 15 years, but that concept has stuck with me over the years!
Here are some things I do when I’m feeling this way…
- Write down 10 things I am grateful for
- Prioritize my day, week, month, year, life
- Reach out to a supportive friend
- Focus on what I can control and let go of the rest!
Number 5 is super hard for me! But practicing letting go of what we can’t control will make it easier and habitual. I just need to remember to practice!
OK! I feel a little better!
Hope it helps you today!!! What can you let go of today????
If you need a reminder for daily gratitude…
If you just need a safe positive place to hang out…
If you want to stay connected…
See you soon!
