Today, in the sparkcoach video there was LOTS of good info and encouragement but one thing struck me HARD. Nicole said, CARVE OUT TIME FOR THIS.... she said it may mean dropping a volunteer project or getting your family to help with chores.
I am not ready to cut the things she suggested....
My truth is that I HAVE time to do what it takes and the homeschooling and housework and volunteering.... I just don't always manage to balance them all.
Volunteering? It is a HUGE part of who I am... what I feel called to. Could I cut back in helping children in need for this??? I can't. Maybe if I knew there was not free time.
But.. My reality is that I am the QUEEN of lazy. During my down time I veg... sitting... the dreaded SITTING for several hours throughout the day... whether reading or online. And THIS is what I SHOULD cut from. I don't need to eliminate it... but it is NOT even HEALTHY to sit so much.
SO here comes the heart of the issue.... Am I willing to COMMIT to cutting back on my down time to make my health a priority???? Am I WILLING to COMMIT to ME????? Am I willing to CARVE out that time, DELIBERATELY, because I am WORTH THE EFFORT??
Because although it hit me because those are certainly areas of large chunks of my time.. the heart of the issue is not WHAT I cut.. but am I willing to make ME a PRIORITY???? It is not kind to me nor good to me nor helpful to me to spend so much time in my recliner.
TODAY I will spend LESS time in this ohsocomfy chair. I will NOT skip my workout. Yes I am tired and headachy and hormonal but I deserve to move and I bet... I will even feel better afterwards. Physically and because it will be ANOTHER VICTORY to celebrate!
