Does it really matter if we drop the odd ball? Juggling skills appear to no longer be part of a circus act but an everyday skill we learn at an early age, much like I remember learning the 'Green Cross Code'.
Today Action for Happiness encourages us to notice when we are tired and take a break, and boy that was sound advice. Today not only did I support my client unravel a recruitment conundrum, coach an employee to reach out and obtain the support they urgently need, I was a mummy to my poorly son, a homeowner completing on a house sale and a wife who sort of prepared a nutritious dinner and I feel tired!
Acknowledging I was tired and taking just 10 minutes to myself made me realise that in the juggling mayhem, I needed to recharge my battery which in turn remind myself why I do what I do and how lucky I am to be able to be a mother, wife, businesswoman & homeowner. Being mindful of my here and now gave me the energy boost I needed to get through the latter part of this afternoon.
And then I came across this quote which I thought was great... If you truly need to drop a ball, pick one that is the least fragile!
If you feel you need some clarity of vision and coaching could help, give me a call, I'd love to hear from you.
