Confession. Lately I have been worrying at max capacity. With the addition of Duke, came a whole lot more responsibility and sometimes I find myself frazzled and wondering how I am going to do it all. Will I have enough time to run to the store, make dinner, and still have enough time to squeeze a work out in? Will we be good enough parents to Duke? What will the future hold? I can not tell you how extremely frustrating it is when I take a step back and look at how much time I just spent worrying about things, some of which I can not control. In order to try and ease some of my worrying, I thought of a few proactive things to focus on rather than worry about them
-Make a weekly menu on Sunday night. Something I’ve been wanting to do but I just felt like I need every detail of the meal to plan it but I have let go of that. I am going to plan a type of entree and then just see what happens once I get into the kitchen. A lot less stress that way.
-On the days that are jammed packed with to-dos, get my workout done in the morning. I have been saying this for months but I know in my heart that this will help. If only dragging yourself out of bed 40 minutes early wasn’t so hard. Since Monday usually turns into a day from hell, I am thinking Monday is a good place to start.
-Enroll Duke in obedience classes. We are going to do everything possible to make sure we put our best foot forward in raising him.
-Keep my “enjoy every second” weekend thought process going full speed thru the week. If we aren’t present and enjoying what’s going on right now, how can we look forward to the future? A lot of this future worrying has stemmed from a whole lot of baby making talk that has been going on at the Vodicka household and rather than worry about when and if, take time to enjoy our little threesome that is going on right now.
Hope my rant full of worry didn’t send you into a panic.
Are you a worrier? How do you manage it?
