When Life Is Overwhelming, What Do You Let Go Of?

Sometimes life gets crazy. Too much going on...too busy, too many appointments, too many people in need of your help, not enough time for what truly matters which means you end up doing things that take you away from your passion. Not enough time for yourself. Where does the time go? I'm at a crossroads and it's VERY apparent that in order for me to continue down the path I am meant to keep walking, a lot of "things" will need to come off my to do list. But it's difficult because I have to fight the urge to explain and justify. 

I do believe this will have to be my year of less It's something my coach, Mia Redrick subscribes to.

I'm tired. Like deep down in the soul tired. My body is still trying to recover from the 6 months of Lupron therapy. It hasn't helped that I've been battling some mystery "allergic" reaction for well over a month. Oh, and I hit my head when I fainted after not feeling well. And then the kid's been sick. And...and...and...

It's not that I'm the only busy person in the world, I know everyone is busy. It's just that I've realized that in order for me to live the life I imagine, I can't continue to hold down all this weight. I can't do it all and I'm okay with that. What I'm not okay with? Continuing to pretend like I can because it's burdening me with a feeling I don't deserve.

The thing is, I'm still super duper uper schnuper grateful for all that awesome around me. It makes me smile and makes me want to keep on going. I think that gratitude is what reminds me that I need to care for myself so I can continue to feel these feelings. Because life might be busy and overwhelming but it is also good.

How do you re-center? How do you re-prioritize? What comes off your list first when things pull you away from your purpose?
