Life seems to be flying by and I feel like I am just along for the ride. Have you ever felt like that? I can honestly say now that I'm aware of it I am going to take control back because it is my life I should be leading the way! But how I'm going to do this is another thing.
This morning while I was journaling I started writing down all these things I want and how I want to feel and what I want my life to be like. I realized that I'm not in alignment with myself, I'm more in alignment with being a robot. It is funny taking a look at the past few weeks, don't get me wrong I have managed to fit some fun in at times but for the majority I have been waking up, going to work, coming home eating dinner, and going to bed – maybe fitting in a few chores but for the most part the same thing day in and day out. Luckily the kids are with my parents so we don't have to worry about them because Frank is gone for at least 13 hours during the day as well.
Today I made the choice to not let my life take control I am going to get back in alignment with all the things I love and want and move forward in a more centred way. I decided to take some advice from myself and give myself permission to be selfish for even 5 minutes. I am going to get back into the routine of meditation, journaling, setting weekly goals, and checking in with myself to make sure I'm in alignment with who I want to be. I obviously can't change the hours I have to work but I can change the way I feel and what I do while I'm there.
My action step for today: CHOOSE the way I WANT to feel and check-in with myself in an effort to not be a robot
For all you working Mom's out there I would love to hear what you do to check in with yourself on a daily basis to avoid becoming a robot or to find more balance in your daily life.
