A month of minimums. Treading December and looking ahead.
December is speeding past and all I want to do is throw my hands up at the playlist of everything I still need to do that keeps running through my head on repeat.
Luckily, I can sit back, take a breath, and focus on this little saying that has helped me make it through 2015! Let me try that now …
… Okay, that’s better.
I’m not sure why December came on as such a surprise, or with such chaos. But instead of hiding under my blankie, I’m checking my list and pulling back to concentrate on the minimums I can get done.
Maybe I can’t get my whole workout in, but I can do 15 minutes. I didn’t have time to post two Free Kindle Pick o’ the Day posts on Twitter this week, but maybe I shared one. This blog post didn’t make it on Monday, but here it is today. I don’t have an hour to sit and edit, but you can make darn sure I’m getting 1/2 an hour of quality edits in!
Not a whole lot of perfection going on over here – but I’m still in the game, and still making progress. By letting go of my “got to’s” I’m freeing up room for more important things this month: Family, Friends, and the Joy of the present moment.
I’m also making time to visit SusannahConway.com and grabbing a free copy of her workbook, Unraveling the Year Ahead – 2016.It’s a great way to celebrate the progress (slow as it may have been) I’ve made this year, and prep for my goal setting/2016 planning session still to come. Be sure to get your own copy!
How’s your December going? Are you feeling the pinch and pull of too many to-do’s and not enough you? What carries you through the chaos?
