It's one of "those" days. I am feeling in a panic for no "real" reason.
Not that I don't have reasons to feel pressure. I am running my business, raising my special needs teenager, caring for my menagerie and trying to keep fit and healthy.
I often feel one or more balls are falling while I juggle, occassionally clattering to the floor and rolling away from me. I don't call it failure as long as I crawl under the sofa of life and grab the cobweb covered ball.
This weekend I have a Father's day gathering at my house Saturday and a horse show Sunday. I am telling myself I am not worried about the show but I am having nightmares where my boots fall off while I am riding, I would say that's a sign! Reminds me of the 'showing up to a final exam for a class you forgot to attend' dreams of my college days.
I realized today though, that like a jump course, you are never jumping 10 or 12 jumps at once you are doing them in sequence. So, I am going to acknowledge my obstacles and start hopping over them. I will get the house clean enough to have company, host a fun gathering, clean my boots, braid my pony and do my best at the show on Sunday. I choose to see the blessing that is the life I am leading right here and right now!
What obstacles is making you overwhelmed and how are you going to tackle it today?
