This was from just the other day when I made my decision to not run my half marathon. If only simply taking a deep breath and letting it go could actually be that easy! For me its been a series of deep breaths. It seems “letting go” has been my personal challenge the past few days. Letting go of running my half marathon. Letting go of the idea that having a bout with flu, means life with a teenager, a flourishing garden/yard and a zoo animals will stop. Because life doesn’t stop for me. Even when I have a bout with the flu. And letting go of trying to have everything about graduate school figured out, before I even start. Yes. At times, I can be that much of a perfectionist.
So I will continue to keep my eye on the intended goal for every aspect of my life. A great mother. An authentic woman. A good student. A runner. A go-getter. A perfectionist. And more. Yes. But I will not allow getting to whatever that intended goal is, to consume me. And by consume me, I mean forgetting to give myself a f-ing break. Stop being so hard on myself. And stop allowing self-doubt dictate how well I am handling whatever challenge or intended goal I am working towards. Because don’t you see? Most of the time, if I can remember to face challenges one at a time and not allow myself to get overwhelmed by all my intended goals at the same time, I do know, I am the Boss and I’ve got this.
Do you ever forget to give yourself a break?
Until next time, always be true to yourself and think like a boss!
