It’s been a rough week at the Testa household. Mark was traveling for business last week, then my daughter got the flu, then I got the flu. BOO. I give it up to you single parents out there, it is super hard to parent solo when you are both super sick.
Currently I have a lot on my plate. The flu was not on my agenda of to do items. I initially felt super frustrated.
Feeling sick really makes it hard to feel good.
Especially when you have no family nearby, you can feel really alone.
But- did I really reach out for help? No. I’m sure if I did I could have found it. But after my tantrum I realized you have to surrender to what is. I can’t change what is happening. Thankfully in the big scheme of things its really no big deal.
When I allowed myself to surrender, I felt free.
Free to just let my body and mind rest. Free to cuddle and snuggle with my baby.
So the lesson I got – surrender. Don’t fight what is as it is just a waste of energy.
When I surrender to what is, my mind and body are free to just be. To go thru what we have to go thru. I can find moments to appreciate. Like the fact that I had a super cozy bed to snuggle with my baby. That we have Instacart. That thankfully my business is flexible, and there is room for life to happen. This is a huge gift.
When you are feeling that resistance, that frustration, I invite you to try and surrender instead. Let me know how it goes for you!
