My head is spinning. I’m trying to launch the Abundant Mama Project and the new Peace Circle and …
My husband is home for the week on vacation, which means my schedule is way off.
I volunteered (gasp) to be an officer on our girls’ school PTO.
I’ve been planning (over-planning?) for school to start on Monday.
I keep going down the lists: Book bags, check. Lunch boxes, check. Snacks, check. School supplies, check. Uniforms clean and ready, check. Teacher gifts … oh crap.
Still gotta get the teacher gifts. I’ll share Friday what that will be …
And I still wanted to write a nice list post for you of all the great ways you can embrace what matters.
I decided to scratch that.
So, instead, I’ll give you an even better post – 25+ Ways to Embrace the Moment, instead.
Slow it down, mama.
There’s no hurry here.
There’s just a life unfolding the way it’s supposed to unfold.
Breathe deeper still.
Shrug your shoulders.
Repeat: Everything will be just fine.
Sit down. Go to bed. Take a nap. Read a book. Light a candle. Take a bath. Step outside and look at the stars. Snuggle in close. Breathe in their scents. Offer to play. Laugh with them. Smile at them. Tell them you love being their mommy. Make a cup of hot tea for yourself, and everyone else, too. Look in the mirror and love yourself. Look in their eyes and love them fully. Bake something. Make something. Dream something.
But, really, stop fussing about with perfection.
Be ready to just wing it.
Ah, that’s right … that’s how to embrace what matters.
If you could put the brakes on for just 10 minutes right now, what would you do with your time to embrace this very moment?
