Left it.

I am proud to say that I did a pretty good job of leaving the work at work. Just the necessities got done and I actually felt pretty calm and stress free for most of the weekend. The good 12 hours of sleep on Saturday night probably helped too :) So hooray for that!

Leave it there.

My goal for this long weekend is to leave the work at work. Sure- there are a couple of small items I need to do- send an e-mail, post a link, etc. That stuff is fine because it comes and goes fluidly through my mind. The work arrives, I do it, and it is done. The real goal is to not think about everything that has to happen on Tuesday before Tuesday. I have created a master list so that there is no chance of anything being forgotten, I have e-mailed the other players explicit instructions about what has to get done and when.

So now you have permission to let go for the weekend and know that when Tuesday comes everything will get done just the way it needs to. And there is nothing more you can do between now and then to ensure that, so why not enjoy each of the weekend days for whatever they bring instead of focusing on what's to come. There will be plenty of time to do that when you get there. Your challenge: to present yourself with the present.

So I've been pretty overwhelmed and busy at work lately which is why I haven't posted recently. But the fun thing is that amidst all of the work stress, I am noticing a growing sense of excitement. Excitement about this little one in my belly coming out into the world. As a couple of the nursery items come together, I am getting excited about everything that room will be and the hopes and dreams that will live there. And I get excited about being able to see this world anew through the eyes of someone who is seeing it all for the very first time. It's somehow like the chance for a fresh-start. And I'm all for fresh starts.

You are enough.

Just the way you are right now in this very moment.
