I'm still struggling with making the right decisions at the spur of the moment, and not letting life get in the way of my efforts, particularly those weekend spur of the momet things.
Had a not so great weekend. But I'm working on having a much better week.
The Self Challenge is REALLY Challenging this year. As I'm into week two, I need to create a better focus to see this through to the end.
My strategy is to quit being so concerned with our family doing EVERYTHING together. Its ok if all four of us aren't at one kids baseball practice. Its ok to go home early and make dinner so we all have an earlier and calmer night, and therefore a calmer morning, and a calmer mother!
Its more of a me issue feeling like I'm being left out of something. I would rather be there watching, and helping if I can, than at home "keeping house" like all the other moms. But I can't do everything and be everything all the time.
This week I will try to be less "controling" of everything in the world, and more calm. I am even going to try to fit in one session of my once beloved yoga.
When you go off course, what do you do to get yourself back on track?
