Yippee! It’s TODAY, my favourite day!! “What, why?!” I hear you ask.
From Monday morning to Thursday mid-afternoon I inhabit the role of coach, businesswoman and lover. I need only consider my own needs, my business needs and my Lover’s needs. I can keep hours that suit me, eat when I am hungry or exercise when I want to. I get to experience myself being totally self-centred.
I live a double life!
From Thursday afternoon to Monday morning the Mom role is added to the others. When my step-kids arrive home on Thursday afternoon my primary focus shifts to them and their needs. My diary becomes their diary and my activities fit around their school & extramural activities. My clock works around theirs. I get to experience myself being selfless.
None of us is ever only one thing at a time.
My life was not always so compartmentalised; I held all the roles all week before my eldest daughter went to boarding school so I know that the art of consciously choosing where to place focus and attention in the face of multiple demands, is not easy to master. Yet, each of us is called to dance in the moment, to move from role to role constantly throughout our day; employee-banker-nurse-chef-parent-partner-friend and back again and again…
What if, somehow, we could slow down and step fully into to each role in the moment?
Wait; don’t go…I have something else to tell you….
