It Only Takes a Moment … A Mindful Check-in

“I don’t have time to just sit around and do nothing.” “I have to drop the kids off at school, get to work, come home and make dinner, get my son to football practice and then catch up on emails.” “I have way too much work on my plate right now.” “I don’t know when I’d fit this in. I’m taking care of my aging mother and working full time.” 

My Superpower – The Power to Choose

I’m stuck in line at the RMV waiting to get my licensed renewed. Actually, I think I’m stuck in the line that leads to the line where I can renew my license. I don’t like this. Not one bit. But I have to renew my license. I have to get around to work, to buy food and go to the beach. I have no control over my current situation or how this RMV office is organized or operated for that matter. I have lots of opinions about this by the way. But absolutely no control over any of it.

However … I have every bit of control over how I deal with this situation.
