The truth is that we are many things and exist in many capacities and have to act accordingly within these capacities as required. We wear many hats at different times or the hats that others or circumstances might impose on us.
You have to be aware of your capacities or the capacity that you are operating in at any given time and which hat it is time for. When it is time to go to sleep,it is time to go to sleep and your body lets you know. When it is time to get up, it is time to get up your body and probably an alarm clock let you know. When it is time to get up and go to work you just have to get up and go. You are already aware of that and you have to flow with that awareness. The trick might not be to think about it too much about it. You just need to be aware that it is time to go and flow with that awareness.
If it is time to act in the capacity of parent or spouse before adopting the role and capacity of worker, then you have to put on your parenthood or spouse hat before you put on your work hat and head off to work. You are already aware of what has to be done, when and where, and just need to flow with the awareness and changes that occur along the way.
Resistance is futile and fruitless, to anything that needs to be done. The only fruit that resistance bears is usually frustration and or resentment. There is no room for either on any given day, if you really want to have a good day.
Each day has a name and each day is given to us for a reason. Yesterday will become today and today will become tomorrow but in spite of any monotony, each day is a constantly changing flow of opportunity.
Monday morning is a good time to reflect, to contemplate and to keep on moving. It is like a new chapter to the start of the week. You can either let the bad moments from the last chapter affect the rest of your story or you can use this new chapter to create a better story.
Spring break may have been a break from the monotony and now that time is over. Some parents may be glad that it is over, a lot of youngsters will not. Maybe you had a delightful spring break or maybe it was noisy and torture for you, but that time is over and now it is time to move on to this week and this new chapter in your life.
It is time to move on and time to flow with the now. It is time to move forward in time and not backwards. If it was not the spring break that you expected, you have time to plan your next spectacular break. If it was a lousy weekend for you, you have next weekend to look forward to and plan for. If you have spent all your money, hopefully you are quickly flowing towards your next pay check or big payment.
Life is a constant current and constantly flowing into the future. Be aware of the currents and Flow with them. Always be yourself but flow with the current and do not drown yourself anywhere or in any capacity.
