I am reading the 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins (brilliant book, I highly recommend) & Today I had a revelation!
I don’t have a problem with starting things or change.
I have an issue with remaining focused!
I am the mum with about 25 things going on & I still take More things on.
I love having lots of things to do.
I don’t sit down or “relax” I just keep going, I’m like the Duracel bunny.
I’m the planner, the doer, the consider it done kinda gal.
But it’s all quick stuff, that I get done & stuff that doesn’t take long periods of time to do.
I easily get distracted by the new bright shiny object that flashes past me.
I remind myself of Dory (from finding Nemo) in this respect & I loose my focus.
With my revelation comes contemplation and change.
I will have to modify this “behavior” for myself, because this “busyness” no longer serves me.
I’m the opposite of the 5 second rule – I should say 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Stop, Think, Assess.
Rather than what I do now 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 blast off, right I’m up to stage 3 now what do you want me to do.
I need to remain focused and see it though; all the way through.
I need to give things the nurturing and time that they need to develop.
I need to become kind to myself, meditate (which currently nearly kills me), and be more in the moment; and mindful.
But what I really need to do, is slow down, appreciate what’s going on, be patient and let things grow.
