It is only Wednesday morning and today already has that hectic look to it as I have three things crammed into the early hours that really don't all fit in the time frame allowed. Yesterday I found myself say it felt like a snowball that got away and was rolling downhill, building into something bigger as it goes. It was my way of describing that feeling of loss of control and beginning to feel overwhelmed.
In reality the control I have over all these circumstances in only in my head. Seriously, the only control I truly have is my perspective of what is going on and how I choose to respond to it. So this week is turning out to be a snowball rolling downhill? Well then I am consciously choosing today to embrace it. I'm pulling in my arms and letting myself roll.
I'm grateful for having heat on cold days. I'm grateful for a husband that can rush home to help fix a leak and replace a garbage disposal. I'm grateful for the fluidity of my schedule to allow for last minute changes when needed. I'm grateful for not needing last minute changes very often. I'm grateful for family that can step in and watch my daughter when changes happen. I'm grateful for dentists and swim instructors and all the professions that help my day move forward. I'm grateful to go with the roll today.
How is your week going? How is your perception and responses shaping how the week feels?
May today allow us to see the fun in hiccups. May we laugh instead of scream and roll with what happens. Have a beautiful day!
