As a woman I think many of us think we can do it all. We want to be needed, it's how we feel loved. Then we break down though, stressed & upset that we've given our all to everyone else and not left much for ourselves. I've watched my own Mom do this for so many years and I've learned an important lesson in watching her give, give give. It's ok to give, we should be givers, but we can't do it all. We have to learn to let go of things. Clear the schedule. Take time to relax.
We move in less than 3 weeks. I am doing the KC Weight Loss Challenge and I have watched the other contestants workout 2x a day, and I've just had to give that "dream" up. My life is so busy right now with moving that it's all I can do to get to the gym once a day! I've had to remind myself that this is my journey, and as long as the scale is going down I'm not going to judge the number by how much I'm losing... cause a loss is a loss. I've had to give up some things that I love doing to focus on our move and this challenge... and it's been hard. Saying no is near impossible for me. But, it's a learning process. I believe I can do anything I really put my mind to... but no, I can't do everything.
Have you had to prioritize your life? How do you find balance?
