This weekend I was TIRED. I mean like single Mom with three kids working two jobs to make ends meet tired. Everything in my body ached and my head was heavy with thoughts. I had no reason to have this kind of malaise — it was like a heavy blanket and been draped over me ….. muffled, restricting and uncomfortable. So I took Saturday to do nothing…..
Yes. Nothing. Nada. Zip.
And to be honest, it didn’t work. Sunday, I felt worse and all I could do was shower and lie on the couch and watch Netflix. As I laid in my semi-comotose state, I thought “Enough Courtney. Enough. ENOUGH!” So I turned off the TV, sat on the floor and breathed. And let all the racing thoughts run their course. And for a moment, it was quiet…..the house, my head, my life and I felt better if only for a moment.
So this week my challenge is to quiet my mind so I can think. As I continue to work for myself, I learn something new all the time. And I have come to realize, I suck at multi-tasking…..I am really good at focusing on one thing and moving quickly to completion then switching focus to another task. But two or three things at once? Nope – it takes me longer and I always have to circle back because I something was left out.
Here is to finding your focus and achieving your goals! Have a GREAT week!
