My day started like any other. Run here do this…run there do that…oh wait, don’t forget to do that…better write that down on my daily list or else I will forget…run run run! I am constantly in a rush to get everyday normal stuff done. It dawned on me today – why am I stressing myself out to squeeze every last second of time to get crap done? When was the last time I slowed down and stayed present in the moment…I couldn’t recall a time.
I remember a couple of years ago, I running around my house in my usual way because I was having a dinner party the following night…and of course, everything had to be perfect.
I was running circles around my boyfriend at the time until he grabbed me by the shoulders and said, “Breathe Michele!” I stood still for a second, looked him in the eye and replied, “I am breathing now get out of my way because I have stuff to do!” Then I continued on – moving around like I was on fire.
