Yes. We’ve all said it. I’ll be ready in 5...I’ll be there in 5. I just need 5 more minutes. These are often said but rarely ever true. It’s just something to say when really..we haven’t left home...or we’re just finished filling in one eyebrow.
Personally , when I say I need 5 more minutes to finish my face it really means 15. Why don’t we say what we mean? Or ask for what we need? Why are we always afraid to ask for more time? After all..tings tek a likkle time. Well it’s something that I’m working on...especially when it comes to deadlines and deliverables. I'm learning to really assess what I am able to do and give realistic expectations and asking for more time and a little understanding when things don't go as planned. I know what it's like to be overwhelmed and I don't want that for any of you so just step back sometimes and breath and then tell them that you need at least 15 minutes more. They'll deal with it.
Whew that got a little heavy..so back to the 5 minutes. For this post, I wanted to get a little interactive and I reached out to a few women I admire to ask them how they use their 5 minutes. Here goes!
Many thanks to Shannon, Nicholette and Sashanya for contributing to this post. It's definitely been a long time coming!
Love and Light,
