Barefoot in Heels

Living in the moment.

Living in the moment.

Most of my blog post are things I’ve learned over the years, bits of wisdom and tricks I’ve picked up over the past 2 decades of navigating motherhood, but this one, this is the one I have the hardest time with.

Life has suddenly become a bit crazy, I’m still not sure how it all happened, but thanks to some people who believed in me one of my life long dreams is becoming a reality. I can’t go into specifics, but things are about to go from zero to a hundred. (Okay, who am I kidding, my life has never been at zero, more like a hundred to mock 12.)

I’m like a kid on Christmas Eve right now, I wake up at night too excited to go back to sleep, and have spent the days running around trying to get everything I need to do in a pretty short amount of time.

So here’s my question to all of you, when the craziness of life is all around you, how do you center yourself? What works to drown out the noise and focus on what’s important like your kids and marriage? How do you balance between your time away and your time at home?

I’ve been a stay at home mom for 19 years now, so this new venture is exciting and petrifying at the same time!

Thanks for any advice!

    The tried and true formula that has worked for me is sweat, preferably in a Pilates studio, along with acupuncture, and meditation. But then again, I only have a set of twins. 😉

    You already know how to step out and step down to re-energize. Sometimes you just need a moment. When you find yourself running at full tilt, and you’re not breathing, stop. Take long deep breaths. Feel the oxygen feed your brain. Center yourself, take a really good look around you, reprioritze then go. You my darling angel have this. Now go!
