The Power of Pause - Do You Control Your Calendar?

Find your calendar and flip back to the beginning of the year and see what you wrote then for “to do’s” in the year. Some of you may have even applied a time line to your goals and aspirations; others simply listed them, assuming the appropriate time will occur to you along the way.

For every one of us “life happens” when we have other plans, so our calendar expresses our intentions, not necessarily our actions for a specific day. Sometimes those occurrences are welcome diversions from a tiresome routine, and sometimes they are unnecessary distractions, and sometimes they are actual emergencies that require our time, energy and attention.

You have only 24 hours in a day, and how you choose to fill those hours reveals your priorities. At the end of the day, the feelings you have about the activities you did during the day reflect how close those actions come to your authentic self. If you experience discomfort the level of frustration you feel indicate your separation from your authentic self. If those actions were items on your calendar, then the question to ask is who controls your calendar?

Does Your Calendar Control You?

The way to find out is to examine your feelings around each item placed on the page. If you feel eager anticipation, then it’s your authentic self approving the appointment. If, on the other hand, you hear someone else’s voice dictating the obligation, responsibility, or duty, perhaps it’s not in your best interest to spend your time that way or with those people.

There are obligations taking up space on your calendar that express your authentic self. Certainly, a trip to the dentist is not something most of us look forward to, but it is an expression of our commitment to self care, to our health and wellness.

Pause for Power

At the end of the week, the end of the month, or the year; look at your calendar and congratulate yourself for the actions that benefitted you or someone else. When you turn the page on your calendar to fill in the blanks in the next time segment, take a moment to consider yourself before committing your time to things that are not an expression of your authenticity.
There’s power in the pause.

30 Second Exercise

Every morning, when I wake up I take 15 seconds to go over my plans, goals, intentions for the day…as I envision them, I choose to feel very good about them.

Every night, before I close my eyes, I review the events of my day for 15 seconds: I appreciate my accomplishments.  What I did, rather than what I didn’t do.What I enjoyed, rather than what disappointed me. Whom I touched, who touched me, and the warm and wonderful feelings we exchanged in that moment.

Every night I go to sleep with a smile on my face and no regrets in my heart, every morning I awake with anticipation for my day and no anxiety about the outcome…because I chose to feel good am, pm, and throughout the day.
