I just turned 38 a few weeks ago, and though it may be cliche, time seems to be racing by. It seemed like it was just yesterday that the ball dropped in Times Square for New Year’s Eve 2001, and now we just commemorated the 14th anniversary of 9/11. I’ll be 40-years-old in a few years and, man, where does the time go?
As a mom, it feels like I’m in a constant tailspin of go, go, go. From sun up to far past sunset, I am in a constant whirlwind of work, homeschool, cooking, cleaning, trying to pay the bills, take care of the dogs, the house, etc…it’s never ending. Stress seems to be the constant state of mind in a society that is non-stop, with pressure closing in on all sides. The need to be perfect hits us constantly, coupled with trying to be “Superwoman” with the perfect body, have the perfect looks, be the perfect mother, and the perfect business person. My inbox is full and my to-do list, even more full. Do you feel it, too?
We women are multi-taskers and in our multi-tasking, I fear we are letting life just swoop by until one day, there won’t be any time left. Let this following video from Sanctuary be a reminder that we need to stop for moment and Relax, Breathe, and #LetGo.
“If I had my time again, I wouldn’t create a to-do list. I’d create a to-don’t do list.”
