It’s a new season! I just love summer! My favorite time of the year. Love being outside, the longer days, no homework for the kids! Now I just need to slow down and savor it!
I have had a nonstop spring-just been gone so much with my mom being ill (and out of town) and other trips I had already planned-both business and fun. It has been too much! I just said to someone the other day, I am having the craziest spring, just can’t seem to stay home and I am so behind on everything! My friend looked at me and said “It isn’t spring anymore, it is summer!” Oops! Where did it go?
One of my friends that knows me well says that I live in my head! I think that she means I am not living in the present, always thinking about what I need to do next, my to do list, etc. instead of just slowing down and enjoying now! Guess I need to do yoga more, it is all about being present! (here I go again with that word DO!)
But then I also think that this is a season in my life where I don’t have control. With my mom being ill I don’t know when I will have to drop things and run on down to Dallas again. This sandwich generation thing is not always fun-being pulled between my husband and kids and the needs of my mom and sister in Dallas. Maybe I am supposed to be learning to say no more and not overschedule myself. It is so hard for me to do! But I am learning that I can’t control everything and I need to trust that everything will fall into place as it is meant to be.
Is it just me or do you all have these struggles too?
