Once I am committed to something, it takes a lot for me to leave that commitment. Often, it gets to the point where I have to throw in the towel – where I feel extremely defeated or deflated and hang my head as I make my exit.
What if that didn’t need to be the case?
I have had several situations like this in the past year that would have been great to avoid.
The single thing that would have helped: listening to my gut the first time.
I get hunches constantly of things that are right and not right. Sometimes they go unnoticed because I am distracted. Other times, I second guess or override the gut feeling because logically or emotionally or intellectually it makes no sense. And so then I get a reminder and another and then, another until I have reached a breaking point and then – look! There goes that towel.
I declare – no more towel throwing moments.
Instead, more clear boundaries.
More listening and trusting my gut, intuition and inklings the first time.
More joy, alignment and happiness.
A daily practice challenges the person who creates on “inspiration.” We have to mother everyday, and ultimately, it is the daily grind that gives us perspective, clarity and the “high’s” of motherhood. I am exploring if the same happens when I write everyday on the topics that normally light me up – motherhood, self-development, healing and creating.
