How did Days 2 and 3 Go?

(if you’re new here, I am spending the next 60 days letting go of my supposed to’s and shoulds read the first post HERE)

Days 2 and 3 showed me that I am happier doing what I need to do first and then doing the things with and for others. I am learning I have time for myself, others and the things I want to see, do, and experience.

Day 2

Yesterday (day 2) was a day of compromises. I knew I had signed up to create and cook brunch and dinner and I was ok with that. First thing in the morning I wrote down what I had to do and what I wanted to do. I considered the when and how I needed for cooking based on when I said we would eat. I stuck to my timetable and I still had time to read, relax and plan my yoga class for Monday.

For me, taking the time to write down what I wanted to do and what I needed to do I could map out my day. I wasn’t rushed. I didn’t procrastinate and at the end of the day I had MORE time for all the things! I ended up checking the productivity box, the fulfilled box and even the restful box!

Side note: Taking time to journal in the morning helped me manage both what I needed to do and what I accomplished. Journaling in the evening let me see where I had successes.

Day 3

Momentum from days 1 and 2 got me thinking more specifics about my ‘what if’s’.

One specific is what if I really gave up coffee? I’ve certainly given up coffee before for various reasons but I always go back to it. I know it is not good for my body. I love the taste of coffee in the morning but I don’t care about the caffeine. I’ve tried decaf and a million coffee substitutes; none of them gave me the same satisfaction. Thanks to the Ayurvedic Woman Program I know that there is more tied up in this simple act with a hot beverage and I need to uncover that before I can truly give coffee up. I am curious to find out what is really driving my morning coffee habit before I can let it go completely.

Another specific ‘what if’ I am focusing on is “what if I created and set healthy boundaries for myself“?

Understanding and becoming clear on the boundaries I need to set for myself and the expectations I have around these boundaries is on tap this week. I know I have a lot to learn and unpack here as well!

Now off to journal more about boundaries.

Here are a couple of articles I’ve found interesting:
