My Un Goal

Jun 18 2010

Summer has arrived and after a long weekend get-away with the grown up girls (which was fantastic), I have a new summer goal.  Perhaps it would be better to call it an ungoal.  As a single working Mom with a child who likes 12 hours of  sleep each night, I feel like my life is run by the tyranny of time and my to do list.  So my ungoal is to let that go.  I find that I am often weighted down by things I want to get done, but know that realistically they are not going to get done any time soon.  So if I know they are not going to get done this week, why do I let them get in the way of my joy this week?  Yesterday I took a 2 hours bike ride with my daughter. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed our time.  But how much more fun would I have had if I could have just been present in the moment instead of worrying about how I was going to get everything done when I got home?  I know that one of the best things I can be doing this summer is playing with my 8 year old daughter.  I know that not too many years from now, her dream afternoon will be something other than playing with Mom.  So I play.  I love to play, but I would like to learn how to do so without the weight.  Does anyone else struggle with this?  More importantly does anyone have any good skills to share in combating
