One of my amazing Unicorns Ellen commented this in the group last week…”Maybe things are not going a 100% as I want them to go, maybe I am not doing as much as I would like to do….but I have a lot of lemons at the moment and not enough glasses to make lemonade in so I just make lemonade out of the lemons where I have the glasses for.”
So often we have a ton of things going on and simply not enough time to do as much as we’d like for each of those things.
But we also have to remember that all we can do is give 100% of what we’ve got at that time.
We are CONSTANTLY in the act of balance.
And often our desire to do more isn’t really that we aren’t doing enough…it’s just that we want results faster.
The thing is, and I know I say this a lot, we simply can’t out work TIME.
And while you may want to make more lemonade, you may want to do more, there is really only a finite amount of time in a day…a finite number of glasses we have to hold the lemonade.
So at some point, you just have to really take a look at what you’ve done and say, “I’ve done as much as I can.”
And then simply let TIME and CONSISTENCY work their magic.
Amazingly enough too, sometimes doing less, but doing things in a way we can keep repeating the habits day in and day out, pays off more.
Because often we burn ourselves out simply trying to do more when we really don’t have the time or energy to maintain that pace.
Embrace the balancing act.
Embrace small changes and doing what you can.
And then trust the process and remember that results snowball.
