Spending time with my family, friends, starting my business idea, regular blogging, finishing onlinue studies, sports, broaden my horizon and getting out of my comfort zone with new experiences, learning Japanese, exploring the city and country we recently moved to, really dedicate time to my kids one-to-one, keeping the house clean, organized and sorted, and some me-time. ” I want it all and I want it now” (Queen comes to mind here). Sounds familiar?

There are phases when it is all organized and runs smoothly and times when we seem all over the place. We try to juggle it all and eventually may end up doing nothing or being stressed instead of enjoying what we do.

It is in those moments that we need to find the strength and space to step back. To stop to see and realize what is going on. What makes us and why do we feel stressed and overwhelmed. More often than not we put it on ourselves.

Take a step back, see what is important, what has to be done, what it nice to do, what can wait – and don’t forget to think about what will make you happy!

At times it helps to write my thoughts and feelings down. Rather then just talking or thinking about ideas and thoughts seeing them ‘black on white’ often helps to put structure to them. It unloads the overloaded mind.

And we just have to realize and admit now and then – that we can’t do it all. But what we do we do the best way we can.

Have a lovely day,

AK
