Wow! Where has the time gone? I haven’t posted for weeks now! Unacceptable!
Now it is time to stop beating up on myself about it.
It has been a whirlwind of a few weeks. The girls are back in school which means I am back at work (since I work at the school) and I don’t have my girls on the weekends which is our only down time and I have been having a really hard time accepting the situation.
Everyone falls off center from time to time but I am so far from center I can’t seem to make it back. I am harboring so many negative emotions – sadness, anger, resentment, worry, anxiety and the list goes on. I feel like I spend my weekends either angry or crying and they are just passing by like a floating leaf in the wind.
Enough is enough. I need to get back to staying present in the now. To stop dwelling on the past that has led to this situation and to stop obsessing about what will happen in the future! This is why it is so important to embrace the present moment – even if the present moment isn’t exactly what you feel you want it to be. It is what it is and that’s ok.
I am trying to decide which book to pick up to help guide me back to the present moment. I might start with Eckhart Tolle and go from there. I have so many great reads on my self help shelf.
I am also practicing my deep breaths. And stretching my arms out wide. And then wrapping them around myself to give myself that much needed hug.
