you get the picture.. right???
♥ I jotted down the above list and, granted, I'm all those things, but enjoy some roles far more than others..
♥ I then thought where I would like to be in 5 years time.. because Rome wasn't built in a day.. right??
♥ Then I acknowledged the fact that I am no longer the master multitasker I once was.. but instead, a sleep deprived mumma with a lingering case of baby brain..
♥ Next I printed off a few of the momAgenda weekly planners and drafted a timetable.. allocating the time I wanted to spend with a particular hat on my head. Yes.. yes.. I know being a mum throws the best of plans out the window sometimes, but a girl's gotta give it a go!
♥ I printed off this quote and stuck it to the fridge...
Don't say you don't have enough time.
You have exactly the same number of hours, per day that were given to Helen Keller, Louis Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson and Albert Einstein.
~H. Jackson Brown, Jr.getting it in perspective..
love.. I love being a wifey, I love being a mumma, I love spending time with my cherubs, even though they drive me nuts and leave me exhausted half the time, I love my friends, I love photography, I love designing, I love my blog and I love crafting.. these made it to the top of the list..
like.. I like renovating, I like cooking, I like sewing, I like gardening and
not my favourite.. I need to clean, I need to be a taxi driver, I need to do the paperwork..
necessary evil.. I have no choice but to look after me.. or the above might as well be scrapped.. paper scrunched and dumped in the bin..
yes I do ramble a lot.
everything has a certain amount of time allocated to it..
and this schedule now includes time for me
ps. i did my first pilates class this morning.. eeeek!!! i took a moment to have coffee (and cake) in my fave coffee shop and kasiabear designs will continue.. just with a slightly different focus for the time being..
