A simple trick to accept things you can't change.

Now this is going to sound really basic.

And in a way it is.

But in order to accept things you can't change, you first need to check there's nothing that can be changed.

Let me share an example.

Something I really missed when I had Florence, was decent time to myself every morning to journal and meditate.

When I tried to just accept that "this is motherhood", it felt pretty crap.

When I asked myself what I could do differently, I noticed a few things

- I could get up before Florence and do it then

- I could do it at a different time of the day when she napped

- I could do it with Florence

- I could do it just on the days my husband gets up with her

So I changed what I could

And while I couldn't do it in the exact same way I had pre-Florence, I was able to do something.

Almost as soon as I implemented this, I was able to accept the aspects that weren't exactly how I wanted them to be.

Because I'd changed the things I could.

The attentive among you will notice that this is actually the process I talked about a few weeks ago to reduce stress. If you missed that, you can read it as a blog post here (it's a good one!).

If you find it difficult to accept things you can't change, and want more support in switching off that busy mind and finding more calm in your life, get yourself on my waiting list for coaching.

Benefits of being on the waiting list

  • Get offered a free 30minute call to answer any questions you have about mindful living when spaces open up.

  • A money-back guarantee on my coaching packages if I think coaching with me would change your life

  • A freeze on current prices - you pay the price of coaching a the time you join the wait list, even if I increase prices after that.

That's it for today folks - I said it was a simple trick! Send me an email if you give it a go, I'd love to know how you find it.
