My not to do list...
When you’re overwhelmed, take a step back.
What NEEDS to be done right now?
Forget a to-do list… you need a NOT TO DO LIST.
E.g. I don’t need to take on more work.
I don’t need to listen to negative thoughts.
I don’t need to feel guilty or shame myself.
Doing the best you can
Who’s guilty of taking on more than they can handle? 🙋🏼♀️
Most of us can relate.
The people pleaser in us.
The over achiever.
The fear of guilt/rejection.
The control freak.
In moments like these take a moment for yourself to breathe and ask yourself – does this actually NEED to be done?
Maybe you desire to get it done quickly.
Maybe you ideally get it done sooner rather than later.
The thing about to do lists is often they never run out… as soon as you do something another thing pops up.
When we can learn to surrender and allow this, life gets easier.
Do the most and best you can in the moment.
That’s all you can do!
You’re a human being, not a human doing 🧡
love & positivity ✨ phi
