I will stop saying, “Busy”, every time someone kindly asks the question, “How are you doing?”
I will treat my time as an asset. I will treat time as my friend and not my enemy.
I will say, “No” to the good so I have time to say, “Yes” to the great!
I commit to self-care. I will start and end my day with me.
I will take care of my body – the vehicle to fulfill my dreams (and my to do list).
I will unplug more and reconnect with myself, my family, my friends, and God.
I will use my gifts to better the world.
I will give up my award as Multitasker of the Year and be more present in each of the roles I play.
I will stop expecting people around me to have a crystal ball. I will ask for the help I need.
I will stop trying to do it all, and will enroll assistants, interns and others to help me grow my businesses. I will use their gifts, so I can focus on my strengths.
I will give my kids undivided attention. When I’m with them, I’ll close the laptop and turn off my phone.
I will make my kids and my husband a priority. I will schedule time with them, and honor that time.
I will stop “sacrificing” my marriage for my business. I’ll show love and gratitude to my husband each day and schedule a date night each week.
I will stop feeling guilty. Guilt is a choice.
I will stop wallowing in all that’s going wrong and focus more on what’s going RIGHT.
I will stop comparing myself to other women and honor the path and timeline I’m on.
