Hi Stacie, have been reading your blog for a while and thoroughly enjoying it, you write beautifully. Isabella is gorgeous, I have a little girl a bit younger, what a roller coaster ride toddlerdom is huh?
Just wanted to say that what you said really resonated with me, when I get too busy and overwhelemed I totally freeze and get stuck. Have just had a period like this and it is sooo hard to get out of - giving myself a break is what I've finally had to do, but do you have any tips for getting re-motivated?

Oh! I absolutely agree - it is so easy to fill up all the spaces with "productivity" until there is no time for the ground to law fallow so the fertility for growth can return. I hope that our time together next week can be a window of filling the well and not just another busy thing to add to the list! xx

I know all too well the pitfalls of go, go, go, with no time for YOU in between. Take care, take it easy, and good for you setting yourself on a path that leads you to wonderful time and memories with your family.

Have a fabulous time..and don't do anything you have to do every day...unless you really really want to...e.g...the fruit juice is dripping off Isabella's mouth....you think..'i have to clean it'...and then you think...no! i don't have to....it's holidays...lazing about doing nothing except some lovin! Have fun! xx

Stacy - I cannot wait to visit, I think we will have so much fun, even if all we do is sit around and do absolutely nothing!

I took a 7 Habits of Highly Effective People course once, and they suggested sitting down with a timer for 5 minutes and focusing on one specific activity. We hardly give anything 5 uninterrupted minutes, and I've found that spending 5 minutes around the items that seem overwhelming over my list ends up really helping to plan some small steps towards achieving them. You might see if that works for you - it could make all those should/have tos seem not so daunting.

Hugs and kisses and see you Friday!

this sounds exactly right...
we all need time and opportunity
to recharge in whatever way it is
that does the trick for us...

great insights!

ah yes, the stress overwhelms me into a cathartic state as well. one thing i discovered from a friend is that i was always feeling guilty for procrastinating... but when it came down to it, i never missed my deadlines, i always got it done in record time. so now i allow myself to play without guilt knowing that i will kick it into gear, get it done, and do it right.

enjoy these moments with yourself being free. it feels too damned good not to!

xoxo
