Ahhhhhhhhh……that feels good.
Don’t get me wrong. I love doing these shows. Like LOVE.
But PERFORMING IS A LOT OF HARD WORK!
After you’ve put in a solid 2 months of rehearsal (with the last 2 weeks going EVERY SINGLE DAY), that Sunday curtain call is a welcome sight!
As the curtain closes, it’s so easy for me to start making the next to-do list.
To refocus that energy. To try and fill that open space.
And if I’m being honest, to overschedule myself and our family.
I like, no love, to be on the go. I’m a stay-at-home mom who is NEVER home.
And while sometimes that’s ok, my family needs a break from obligations right now.
We need more time cuddling and less time sprinting to the next “thing”.
We need an internal focus.
THE PLAN THAT’S NOT A PLAN
– Say no.
If it takes me away from the house and it’s not beneficial to our family, I need to SAY NO to it. It’s at the top of the list because it will require the most effort, but I’m determined.
– Work on Summer Bucket List.
This lady’s crazy…she just said she wanted to slow down. True.
But I chose my bucket list because all of the items are things that we WANT to do, not that we HAVE to do. And if some of them go unmarked, that’s totally cool.
– Eat more.
Plain and simple. I want to add more muscle to my frame. Muscles need fuel. I know that I’m not eating enough calories right now (I’d guess I average 1,400/day) – time to refocus on proper fueling.
– Be PRESENT!
This was my New Year’s Resolution. One that I’m still working on. I’ve gotten pretty good at changing Clara’s diaper with one hand, while looking at Instagam with the other. Sad.
I’ll never get these years back! I stay at home with my kids because I don’t want to miss anything. And lately, I’ve been letting social media and other “outside” influences get in the way.
If you see less of me on Facebook or Twitter or whatever, it’s because I’m choosing family over self promotion. I might lose out on a business opportunity, but I’ll be gaining something of far greater value.
So that’s the plan that’s not a plan because if it were a plan, that would mean that I’m scheduling and planning and that is the opposite of saying no to planning, which is what I wanted to do in the first place.
Who’s with me in needing to SLOW DOOOOOOWN??
QUESTION: Give up one thing that’s taking you away from what’s important. Leave it in the comments – leave it there and walk away!
