In the last few weeks a shift has taken place.
A shift in my time.
A shift in my mind.
I’m struggling with how to make all my roles fit together. All the pieces that make up Catherine.
It feels a little bit like trying to make 42 pieces fit into a 24 piece puzzle. No matter how hard I try to make each one of my pieces fit there are always pieces left sitting off to the side. Neglected.
I neglect myself physically or emotionally. I may not nurture friendships or other relationships. My house and all the responsibilities in it gets ignored. I’m not mothering the way I could. My garden needs attention. Evolving Mommy – my space for evolving, connecting and growing – is left untouched. My kitchen is not a hub of activity. The stack of books on my nightstand collects dust. I don’t get enough sleep. I just don’t have the time to make all the pieces fit. At least it feels that way lately.
How do you make all the pieces that matter to you fit in your puzzle?
