I’ve been focusing on working more than I’ve been living.
Over the last few weeks, I’ve put so much into my work. I’m doing all of the ‘things’ during my work days and then my leftover time has been spent on my kids, my partner and my house. There’s been absolutely no time for me.
It’s important for me to recognise that this was a choice I made. I chose to put myself last on my priority list and that’s okay, I don’t hold judgement towards myself, I simply accept that it was how it was.
But moving forward, I’m choosing to live more than work.
I’m choosing to do the things that I enjoy doing whether it’s ‘productive’ or not.
I’m choosing to move my body in a way that feels good, not because I ‘should’ exercise.
I’m choosing to tune into my body to feel what work needs to be done each day because I don’t want to feel overwhelmed.
I’m choosing to more patient with my kids and to stop rushing them because I have all of the time in the world.
I’m choosing me, I’m choosing myself and I’m choosing to live the life I want to live. My focus moving forward is going to be on living.
