Living in the Zone

It’s 7 am on a Sunday morning and I’ve had no sleep. I’ve been up with a crying baby. I have a deadline that’s fast approaching and a million other tasks, which can only get done when the kids are asleep – late at night or very early in the morning. Yet I don’t seem to have even that time anymore.

I could let it get to me, but frankly I’m too tired to do so. Besides I’m working on living in the moment. I’m loving my new baby and playing with him (even when I’m tired and sleepy) is always a delight.

With all this talk on mindset and taking responsibility for the way you feel etc, I thought I’d share this video with you. It’s a song that’s been running through my mind and I listen to it almost every day. It’s Dare to Live by Andrea Bocceli and Laura Pausini and it captures where I am at the moment.




  1. Now go to sleep. thanks for the post :)

  2. The video doesn’t work in the U.S. (or so it says), but I totally get what you are saying. I just got home from a 16-day tour in the UK and my sleep patterns are all messed up, plus I have a bunch of mail to deal with and laundry to do and stuff to sort out, not to mention the grass to cut. Writing and blogging will have to wait a day or so. But I had a delightful time on my trip and am looking forward to meeting lots of fellow authors in Atlantic for the RWA Conference in about two weeks.

  3. As a mom of four, I well remember those days when they were so tiny. Thanks for the video share. Beautiful.
