Last Sunday, I made awesome shish kabobs.
And I had to marinate the meat.
Here’s a sign that I’m a life coach through and through: I was marinating the meat and thinking, “What kind of thoughts do I marinate in?” And that got me thinking. And I’ve been discussing this with my clients this week as well.
What kind of thoughts do you marinate in?
Here’s what I mean. On default, your brain might marinate in thoughts like (and please insert what is true for you): Why is it so hard for me to be present with my kids?
I wish I didn’t have such a long to-do list so that I could enjoy them more.
How will I ever get everything done?
My kids fight way too much.
I want more time for myself.
And then you can create your own intentional, delicious marinade. It can look something like:
Sometimes I’m great at being present with my kids, and sometimes it’s more challenging. It’s OK.
I’m as busy as I want to be.
There’s no such thing as getting everything done. I’ll get done what’s necessary. The rest can wait.
My kids are totally normal and delicious, and I love them to pieces, AND I can create time for myself.
Here’s my challenge to you: Create your own delicious, intentional thought marinade. Something that serves you. Not on default mode. Let me know how it goes.
And if you want help with practically applying this and learning how to find the right marinade for you, I got you. Just reach out.
