(If it’s not one of those three, then I’m pitching the ball to my budding baseball star :))
As I’ve said before, I struggle with what to do with my time when I’m actually alone. So, I’ve just been going with the flow, guilt or not, and appreciating the time I have. Sometimes I’ll squeeze in a good fiction book, or read some Scriptures. Writing down goals, aspirations, and simply what I’m thankful for also helps me to keep a healthy perspective. There’s always something to complain about, right? So I’m making an effort to focus on the simple blessings that I usually take for granted. Sounds like a no-brainer, but I am definitely one who worries more often than not. Changing that is a slow process, but I’m improving! As stressful as kids can be, they really can motivate you to be a better person. As a parent, I want the best for them in every way possible, and modeling who I want them be is the best I can do.
Because they watch and repeat E V E R Y T H I N G. LOL.
Reminder to myself and to you– Enjoy your life, one day at a time. As awful and inconvenient as hardships can be, they are an opportunity for growth– and growth can be painful. Take a breath, and remember that both the good and bad things in life are temporary.
