If It’s Not This, It’s That

I have fully embraced the idea that if it’s not this, it will be that.

There is always something that could potentially be standing in the way of what you say you want.

That is the game of life, the ebb and flow, the cause and effect.

If we embrace this idea that life is made of challenges and lessons, we can get through them with acceptance and grace.

Take my day today for example. It’s 6:15 am and I have already:

  • made pancakes for breakfast
  • responded to 2 emails
  • made one appointment for next week
  • packed up snack, lunch,  and dinner for later
  • walked, fed and petted the dogs
  • writing this post

I think that I should be able to take a nap right now, don’t you?

However, I have to get my walk in, my workout, train 2 clients at the gym and then get my butt to the Restaurant and work a double. (which means I work from 11 am to 10 pm.) What in the world was I thinking when I agreed to that? I was thinking I would say YES and help them out by filling in for other vacationing hostesses but now that I have to do it, it could fit into the overwhelm slot in my head.


But only if I choose to let it.

Instead I choose to readjust my attitude and be GRATEFUL for the opportunity to have work, recognize that everything else can wait till tomorrow, that I have my beautiful new Iphone so I can stay in touch with whatever issues show up in my in box.

So all is good and I am grateful. You are, however, getting no pictures in this blog and I am a picture girl..okay never mind, I will give you picture you can create in your head about what I will be focusing on today:

  • smiling
  • breathing
  • appreciating
  • accepting
  • being in the moment
  • enjoying where I am (not where I could be)

Now that’s a picture perfect day!!

What will you picture for yourself today?
