I am in a race - not a sprint but a "decathlon".
There are many facets to this race - a variety of smaller events that culminate to the prize.
When I start to burn out (which I seem to be doing now sooner and sooner in the week), I stop and focus.
When I FOCUS, it slows me down.
I get to enjoy each event that comprises this "decathlon" I am in.
I cherish my children's voices - and let go of the anxiety of the request.
I look deeply into my husband's eyes and see his heart - not the 'thing' he isn't doing for me.
I see the pending piano lesson as a gift - not another chore to be done.
I see the email questionnaire from the local paper as an opportunity to share my views vs. a task within a really short window of time to deliver.
I self-reflect on my incredible journey - the triumphs, the heartaches but most of all the outcome.
Focus is the opposite of glance. Don't glance at your life - focus or you may miss something.
