It’s so easy to feel overwhelmed. To think way far ahead at “everything” that needs to get done and suddenly nothing gets done because you feel so overwhelmed at all you “have to do”.
You, is also me.
I’ve learned this about myself quite a few times, the difference is I can much more easily recognize and forgive myself to take a step back and take things one step at a time.
Having Futuristic as my top strength, can attribute to this as a downfall. On top of that being a virgo 😉! Looking forward, planning, strategizing… all good attributes especially during renos, but at times it’s best to take it a task by task, moment by moment.
We learn to love ourselves for who we really are, my true soul deep down, and honor that.
By this stage of our renos, it’s always hit me. Like I said I’ve gotten so much more gracious with myself honoring time and space.
This evening the kids and I tackled a few things that helped move forward and provided a visual aspect of movement. When my husband got home we enjoyed dinner and decided the rest of the night was to relax and recharge. A MUST if you are doing any renovating for sure, or are living through Covid-19 days.
As I was going through the plans with my daughter, I began to mentally make lists of what all “had to happen”. When it hit me, a wonderful reminder to just stay in the moment. Everything would fall into place, like it always does, and most times for the better in some shape or form.
We have literally lived through every single renovation and that has helped us shape our home to our lifestyle and ultimately us. I commented the other night to my husband that I love our home so much. I thought I did before, but its 10 times more now! And it’s not even done LOL!
My gracious reminder for tonight to be gracious to myself, take it one step at a time and trust that what is meant to be, will be. ✌
Get outside in some way, breathe in the fresh air, enjoy the sunshine, or rain like tonight! 🌧 Allow your thoughts to flow, brain dump onto paper, drink water! How’s your energy? For me my health thrives with vitamin, mineral and omega supplements, healthy food, toxin free beauty and cleaning products! Moving my body is becoming more of a priority, what I have recognized is when I am comfortable in my space, the more I will move my body because I have less of a to-do list going through my head. When in truth I don’t need to wait. It’s simply pulling back, back into being. 💕
Get the diffuser on! This helps me shift even better from beginning to feel overwhelm, realizing when that happens, nothing happens. Essential Oils have been a god send, honestly. They have helped shift our households mental and emotional health, which also benefits our physical health! The healthiest our family has ever been and continue to every single day! It feels so good to feel good and feel strong! Tonight its straight up Clemintine in a couple diffusers! Clemintine smells incredibly fresh, renewing and as a citrus our family finds it also comforting.
One thing I did tonight was take an inventory of all of our oils. We use them alot, in the past 5 months, we should have used them alot more in the first 2-3 months! I get caught up in life and even something as simple as starting the diffuser or grabbing a roller bottle gets forgotten, actually looked over. Because my mind is cloudy. I purposely have at least 1 extra bottle of the oils we use all the time. Plus any oils that I receive free in my LRP or BOGO week!!! I’ve got some points built up that I like to use for restocking our oils for the wall in our kitchen/dining room and the smaller connection downstairs. 🥰
We gain so much more momentum when we pull back and simply be. 🙏 With grace and ease. Love and compassion. Understanding and appreciation.
Taking a step back, can have so much power to propel forward! When you get out of your head! 🙌
