It’s been a hectic few weeks to say the least and with that comes a lot of chatter in my head, a constant changing “to-do” list. Along with trying to manage my team and juggling meetings, I also started teaching my yoga classes at my house on weekends to finally get my yoga certificate.
There are also additional demands from friends and family and so I am learning the art of saying… “no.”A big part of this art is realizing that I cannot do it all and that it’s ok to just leave some things for the other day or even another week… or just simply leave it.
With trying to juggle it all (did I also say that I am taking Spanish classes and doing Brenè Brown’s online we course?!), I have been receiving clear signals to simplify: from the weight gain, to learning during my last physical that my blood pressure is a little high and if it’s not fixed soon, I may need to take medication. No to that one as well.
This moment of reflection also provided me with the reality that there was something I was filling by needing to do everything and listen to everyone and being the connector. It was to fill the void that was created by this internal believe that being this involved meant that I mattered but slowly and surely, I am realizing that I matter because for other reason than just being here, in this space and time.
