Today was the day! I can do this. I am actually excited. It does not matter that my hair was a bit limp or that my face looked a bit puffy from the night before food choices. I had this.
Then I heard my eldest son still lightly snoring in his bedroom-oh yeah he did not have school today. My dog is feeling a bit energized and is barking at everything walking bye-like the air! The home phone is ringing about doctor appointments, solicitors, and colleges wanting more money. Sigh. My "perfect" day is slowly fading into the background.
Nope not today. Not this week. Not this month. Not this year. I am doing this. I am going to get the projects that will completed no matter what. So off to my closet I go!
Yes my closet. It is the only room in the house with no windows and to get to it you have to go through my bedroom and bathroom. It's my safety zone. I got this!
What would people think? Will they think I am crazy? Will they say hey she is not very professional? Well, it is what I had to work with. So I did it.
Remember everything is possible if you look for a creative solutions in our lives. This whole morning has given me a few gifts:
It gave me permission to be a little silly today.
I was able to show up authentically and just be me.
It was fun to be lighthearted and still get my work done.
It gave me a new perspective on excuses. I don't want to live by them anymore. Not on the big plans I have for myself.
I was a witness to my kids that no matter what is happening I have a choice-every minute of everyday!
Everyday is a new beginning. Who will I be today? How do I want to look at my world?
Ask yourself these questions. They might change your whole day into a magical wonderland of possibilities.
