The first step is to accept the chaos to find the calm.
Let’s be honest, life is full on, especially if you are juggling a job, family responsiblities and keeping up with the pace of change in our lives. Taming the chaos sounds impossible!
Striving for complete calm in the midst of chaos only results in frustration and a feeling of being overwhelmed.
What if you embrace the chaos, accept that this is part of your life, and then seek calm within that chaos?
Then life would be easier. There would be less of a struggle between the extremes of chaos and calm.
A life, which is, vibrant, rich and poignant, is one which opens its arms to both, chaos and calm.
When I was in the midst of raising my children, there was no doubt, I had little time to breathe.
I was still able to carve out moments of calm with my needlework, reading, exercise and Sunday afternoon naps.
These moments of calm rejuvenate you, preventing burning out.
Chaos is really just a state of mind, we create much of it in our heads by thinking of things that still need to be done.
You add extra tasks, creating unnecessary additional chaos. And so it goes.
But real life chaos is manageable.
It’s the chaos created in our mind, that leaves us feeling depleted.
Acceptance of the real chaos is the first step.
Then there is space for calm.
How do you carve out calm in midst of your chaos?
