During our last SCB2 meeting, we watched the video discussing the big rock idea. It left me wondering if the purpose was to discover how to adjust and rearrange life to fit it all in or to think more about what is important in life and focus on my "big rocks?" It's hard to decide what exactly is a big rock because it all feels so important. Obviously I believe my family, work and masters program our my biggest rocks. However I wish faith and "doing good for others" were part of that combination. And how does one decipher between a big rock and a little rock when you are caught up in the moment. My whole life I've always been told I worry too much, to not let it bother me, that I'm easily annoyed and I'm too hard on myself. I obviously haven't had much success letting the little things go and staying positive and focused on the big things.
And even when I am focuses on the big rocks I tend to stay very narrow minded and can only do one rock at a time. I don't believe that is a weakness and I do believe that many people feel the same and pulled in too many directions at once. Our society pushes for us to be it all and to have it all. It's hard to let that feeling go and it's hard to realize you maybe haven't given enough attention to all your big rocks. So what have I done to help me through this you may ask? I'm taking baby steps. This week I told my kids how much I loved them each time I dropped them off at daycare. A simple thing but often forgotten about in the rush of dropping them off so I can get to work. I also sleep less. I try to do my homework outside of family time. Last, instead of making a project at school "cute & perfect" I just used my copy from last year. And it was okay!
