Don't make me!!!

Don’t make me.

That’s what the voice in my head screams at me anytime I’m called by my heart and soul to do anything big. Or even small. Big to that voice could be a facebook post or a blog post or setting boundaries with someone. Small could be something like crawling out of bed in the am. Girl’s got some legit scaries goin on. 

What is your little person saying or SCREAMING at you?

What would it look like if you listened with love and compassion?

We're all afraid!

FYI: this quote is intended to be sung to the tune of Ice Cream (I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream). You can thank me for getting this little number stuck in your head.

Cue the shame story for being a scared human. This brings me to my next point.

This was my Monday

Okay. So ya know when you take some time off from work and then when it's time to get back into the swing of things you sort of 'forget' how and what you're supposed to do? That's what's up over here today.

Sits at computer. Whoa..look at that ball of dust over there in the corner.. FOCUS. awww a cute dog video. Maybe I should eat now.. it's already been 6 minutes since I ate my mid-day snack. FOCUS. Maybe I'll go through this pile of papers that I've been planning on going through for 5 months now. FOCUS. what time is it? Can I have another snack now? Maybe I should go look out the window for a bit and wish that someone would come along and do all the things for me so I could sit around and wish some more that things would just happen without me having to do anything.
