Watch out, things change in the blink of an eye!
Hey all you moms out there who are trying to make everything perfect. Perfect with your scheduling of everything going on in life, perfect with the way you do things or perfect with the way you run your business. Welcome to my world! I get what you are going through. I went through countless years of thinking I could keep everything going smoothly, calmly if I planned it all out and said to myself, yeah I can do this! I understand how challenging it is and that stuff happens in the blink of an eye that changes your day, your week or your life. I am a planner, a perfectionist and organizer of EVERYTHING I possibly can, you see where I am going with this? Maybe you are as well! If you are thinking to yourself…just wait until the kids grow up life will be easier, less stressful and more organized I’m here to say yes and no. I am telling you the chaos does not end when the kids are grown. Yes, you will have more personal time for yourself however we live in a world where somehow, some way we fill up our calendars very quickly. I love to learn new things, take classes, meet up with friends and take on new challenges. Guess what, I still go through chaos even though my kids are grown and on their own. It’s just a different phase of chaos.
This brings me to my reason for reaching out to you today. I planned a day surgery for myself six months ago! Yeah, I thought I was being VERY organized and was being pretty smart to plan this out so far in advance for the exact time of the year I wanted to do this. I would be able to get my life and business in order, to have this surgery and of course it would all go as planned. What was I thinking?
The end of last week I was feeling a bit under the weather. You would too if you had been living my life. I had been cooking freezer meals, baking, cleaning and organizing for the past month on top of running my business. Whew! I’m tired just thinking about all that I did. Remember what I said in my last newsletter and blog? Click here to read it. I planned time with friends and family and finalized some business commitments. I’m so grateful I took time for all of what I wanted, LOVE my time with friends and family. I even planned a night out of dancing to one of my favorite bands with a group of friends. Usually I can handle all that, though something stopped me right in my tracks last week when I wasn’t expecting it. In the blink of an eye!
I started feeling tired and not myself and I couldn’t snap out of it as I usually do. Now…I had reached my 6-month fitness goal that I talk about in my previous blog so I was feeling very accomplished up to that point. I even lined up It’s About Time helper’s months ago to keep things running smoothly with my business while I recover, so that task was done.
Here we are days before my surgery and guess what, I had to make that dreaded phone call today to reschedule my surgery until December. I’m not well enough to go through a surgery or the recovery presently. It’s a big deal because now I have to reschedule some things however I also have five weeks to rest up, relax and enjoy because everything else is all in place. I hope! 🙂
