SB-blog-067Life for a working mom is hectic. In fact, life for most people today is hectic. I got up at 6 am when the kids left, ate, made my To Do list and hoped to take my sacred bath before the men who were building a closet in my bedroom came at 9-9:30 am.

I lit my candle, said my prayer and climbed into my sacred bath. It was a short day because I had coaching sessions, a Time magazine interview and writing assignments and then my kids got home at 2, so every minute was accounted for. To stay on track with tasks I had all my phone alarms set and I was looking forward to this relaxing window of sacred time.

But wouldn’t you know it. I climbed in at 8:30 am and there was a knock on the door at 8:40 am. The maintenance men showed up early. I told them I was in the bath and they needed to come back at 9 but even though the words were right, the magic was broken. I felt a bit guilty for shooing them away, I couldn’t refocus and I felt rushed. They had said they’d arrive between 9-9:30 and they came early. The day before they were supposed to work from 9-5 but instead came from 9-10:30 am and from 5:30-6 pm. It wasn’t fair for them to drop in whenever they wanted with my busy schedule.

I explained this of course but most importantly, I figured out a way to redo my bath ritual that evening, after my kids went to sleep. I needed to create and honor that sacred time, even when life and obligations interfered. And, my sacred bath was the highlight of my day.

So, don’t be afraid to do a redo when life interferes with your best intentions. You are worth it, and practice makes perfect.

Happy Bathing!
