Pinch of Positivity | Volume 5

Reality is slowly starting to set in that I really won’t be able to do it all this summer. Taking my girls on lots of mini-adventures, working on multiple projects, and also spending time with my husband at the end of the day is just not possible. Something will always suffer.

At the moment, it’s my sanity. I’m cranky and overtired and that’s no good for anyone. So today I’ve decided to take a step back, reassess and reprioritize. I need to put less pressure on myself and stop saying yes to everything placed in my path. I need to carve out time for myself so that I don’t go completely insane. I need to take a second to just breathe.

I also took a look through my “Inspiration” Pinterest board for a little kick in the butt.

I might have to buy or DIY a couple of these so that these words are shoved in my face from time to time to remind me to breathe.

Is there anything you’re feeling overwhelmed by at the moment? What do you do to recenter yourself?
