As I said in my post yesterday, I am going to blog for 30 days straight. I also want to meditate daily for 30 minutes, which will hopefully lend some calm and sanity for the rest of the day. From the moment my girls wake up at 6 am, the Tasmanian devil whirls through our day and I’m left at 7 pm with a vague recollection of what happened. Needless to say, it’s nearly impossible to have a quiet moment and write. So, I decided to dust off the ol’ alarm clock and get up before the babies, so I’d accomplish my goals before the sun came up. I set it for 5:30 am and wouldn’t you know that my younger daughter decided to wake up at 5:20 am this morning. I quickly fed her and gently laid her down. I rushed out of the room, grabbed my laptop and realized that it was already 5:50! Now I was already behind. So, I decided to cut my meditation in half and only do 15 minutes. And then I spent half of that time thinking about what I wanted to write about. Now, I can hear my daughters both talking on the baby monitor as I write.
And I find myself a little disappointed. I figured if I did the hard work of waking up early, I’d be heavily rewarded with girls that would sleep in until I had finished meditating, blogging, showering and they might even let make some breakfast before they starting shouting “I see you mommy!” Then I found the quote,”It never gets easier. You just get better.” Amen! Here I am on my second day of my goal, and I expected life to stop for me. This life is well worth fighting for, but like any warrior, we must build up those muscles that can handle the ups and downs. So, now I have a sub-goal. I will not be deterred, disappointed, or despondent when life does what it has always done. It moves, it creates, it shines and it pours.
This lady is craaaazy and I can’t help but think that she’s hilariously spot-on. And the lady is rolling in her wildest dreams and making a killing from it. I felt a sense of peace after reading her post about failure being a good thing. Because guess what? Failure will happen. Over and over and over. So, finding peace with it is a relief!
One of the absolutes in my life is breakfast. My failure rate is drastically decreased by eating something of substance when I wake up. And since I have 3.7 seconds to accomplish this task, it better be something quick! Then we have the health factor. If I can sneak in some of my healthy necessities first thing in the morning, I feel incredibly proud and start sauntering around in my imaginary superwoman cape. So, this recipe does the trick. One thing to mention; it’s weird. But take a chance that this strange recipe can start you with eight cylinders, a clear head and will get you off and running in no time!
My friends, I appreciate you coming along today! I have loved all the comments and messages. I sincerely thank you for joining me in being fiercely happy! May your day be filled with more strength, more love, more joy. Peace and light xx
