That is the brutal truth… people think I just “do it all” guess what I don’t!!I used to kill myself at times trying to do it all, be it all and attend every party, meeting and take every opportunity that came my way.
5 years ago I learned a word that changed my life: DELEGATE.
As well as I decided to start talking people up on their “can I do anything to help you” offers..
I often say now “do not offer to help me or do something for me if your just saying it because I will hold you to it”
(insert stay home mom eye roll here) Life is about saying no to one thing so you can say yes to right thing! If your a horrible admin person why would you say yes to being the team mom??! If you can’t sew why would you offer to make aprons for Christmas gifts?! I am very passionate about time management, delegation, saying YES to the things that are part of your life mission and message and letting the rest go! Ill save the rest of my tips on that for another time. For now I want you to realize.. I don’t really do it all. I do the things Im good at, the things I love and I cheer on those with strengths I don’t have vs wishing I had them. ThingsI don’t do: Sew.. not even a button.
Make cake pops for my kids parties.. I happily order organic ones from my dear friend Sherrie of Scratch
mow my lawn.. my 11 year old does. I will say I used to LOVE mowing our law back in the day barefoot and pregnant with my sweet Noah.
Make dinner every night. I shoot for 3-5 nights a week and some weeks its 2x
Take a shower every day.. yup thats right I don’t shower every day. I also don’t iron cloths, curl my hair and I have yet to master the perfect smokey eye. Im horrible at math.. Math= MentalAbuseToHumans Im not the team mom, class mom or kiss your every boo boo mom either. I could NEVER run a daycare or be a nanny. Im not the one taking meals to every person that has a baby.. just can’t do it. So if you got a meal from me you know I love you more than most 😉 I don’t alphabetize my pantry, clean out my fridge every time I shop or file papers every month. As much as Im told often I need to be in politics I might have a spaz attack if I had to sit in those meetings more than a handful of times per year. I can’t do the same thing every day for the rest of my life except for love people.. that will never change. I think you get it.. Im not Martha Stewart nor do I want to be. I am not Eco Chic. I am not mom. I am not wife. I am his.. chosen, beloved, redeemed, set apart and I will spend all my days pursuing the very things He put inside of me. I am a visionary, leader, friend, love a challenge, all things wellness, community, taking people from dreaming to doing, living life with purpose and greatness. Would you join me?
What are your strengths? What do you do currently that maybe you need to let go of? What are you doing currently that you love?
