I am an extremist, a perfectionist, an overachiever, and a closet introvert.
This doesn’t mean I’m perfect, it means I nearly kill myself, (and those around me), aiming for perfect, trying to always do it right, do it now, and do my best.
What I’m not? I’m not invincible.
I think Rachel Hollis, (or a Greater Power), came to me in a moment of downtime.
Downtime? Read as: <must have caught me during my sleep>
Life, (or a really good podcast), is always bringing us lessons to learn. Listen.
Many of us need the same lesson over and over. Again.
See my hand high in the air?
What have I learned lately?
I’ve learned that if we don’t know enough to slow down, something will come into our lives to do it for us.
Life= Learning to balance the scales over and over. Again.
Learn the lesson before that life is over and there are no more chances to get it right.
We allow priorities to get shuffled around and life becomes unbalanced when we forget what really matters.
Family matters. Relationships matter. We matter.
You won’t see a job title after your name; it doesn’t matter. Tombstones list relationships… friend, mother, daughter, wife…
“Relationships are assignments; no one is sent by accident to anyone. Pay attention to those who are there to serve your growth. Listen and be guided.” ~ A Course in Miracles.
