You know the Greek demigod Atlas? He’s the one who was condemned to carry the heavens on his shoulders for all of eternity.
Do you ever feel like that?
Like you have to carry the weight of the Universe on your shoulders or all hell will break lose?
That if you don’t single-handedly do the housework, cook dinner, pay the bills, rein in your kids (or your partner, or your clients), or whatever your version of this is, that it simply will not get done?
And that you have to say yes to every invitation, because on some level it sounds like fun, because you don’t want to miss out, or because you feel obligated?
So instead of feeling a sense of ease, you push your way through your day, pushing to move forward, pushing to get things done.
But you don’t just push things into place. You also push aside the things you really, really want to do.
And then after weeks go by, or maybe years, you suddenly realize, “WAIT! I’m now in my 40s or 50s or 60s (give or take a decade) and I haven’t done that thing I really, really want to do!” (Had a baby, written a book, started a business.)
And you feel like it’s too late.
But you hope it isn’t.
Because even though you’ve shoved your secret desire into the corner while you’ve waited for that elusive day when all of the drama and dishes and metaphoric diapers are finished, you still really, really want to do that thing you feel called to do.
But the overwhelm…
The full schedule…
Many women feel like this. (And if you don’t, share your secret with us here.)
