Sorry to have been so absent in my blogging, things have really ramped up over the last little bit, and it looks like they are going to stay that way until the end of June, so I have learned to really appreciate the spaces between my busyness.
There are a couple of things that happen when I am busy…I either feel super accomplished because I am getting so much done or I feel completely over-whelmed and like I just don’t know where to start. I am not completely sure what makes the difference but I think it might come down to attitude so I set out to begin embracing the spaces between.
I need to learn to make use of the time between the busyness, not just so that I can carry on, but so that I can function in a normal way. Have healthy relationships, take care of my body, mind and soul. These aspects of self-care are so important as we pour into others lives.
So I have learned to go to bed when I feel tired, eat when I am hungry, appreciate when hubby does the dishes for me. I have learned to appreciate a quiet house, time to read that isn’t part of work and I have learned that it is okay to say no to people so that you can have a space between. The other thing I have learned is that it is okay to ask for help…that was a bit of a tough one for me…but I had no spaces between to recharge and that just couldn’t go on.
So I am learning to not only appreciate the spaces between my busyness, but to create those spaces because that is what I need to do to accomplish everything in my world.
