Here at my house I dropped the ball on dinner tonight , it was chicken taquitos .Hey , they are all natural from whole foods that counts for something , right? I did however get my toddler to clean his mess , win. Get him bathed, and get 90% of his knotted hair out. I even pre packed his lunch for MDO tomorrow , I am horrible and usually do this rushed in am!! So tonight as we cuddle up watching Toy Story for the millionth time, I feel gratitude. I dont` know about you but usually I feel so overwhelmed and guilty when I want to relax. The kitchen is a mess , toys are all over and I still need to get some work done.
SO WHAT AM I CHANGING you say? I have been waking up earlier, honestly I would get my butt u at 530 if Oaklee didn`t crawl out of bed as soon as he noticed me gone. Anyways, I get up 6/630 get oaklee some morning snacks, cereal , bananas , whatever , let him watch some singing show he likes. I know shame on me right? Am TV time OH THE HORROR. Then I head to do a quick workout . My husband is usually laying in bed he is not to much of am person. He can hear and see my son , no he is not alone ha!
This gives me so much more energy and when I get back I make breakfast, have coffee and do my gratitude writing and devotional while Oaklee eats. No its not always perfect sometimes I do it backwards but the thing is I wake up and do things so I start my day feeling good. If I can not get right to gym I listen to my podcast, and just do some me time.
THEN ON Tuesdays I do my scheduling and planning , why Tuesday? Because that works for me , thats when Oaklee goes to mothers day out! Then On Thursday, Oaklees second day at school, I do editing, writing and business work. My husbands schedule changes so whatever his day off is I work in the morning as well and try to save the afternoon for family time.
Now my schedule changes, its not the same , I have sessions, weddings and babies being born so I work HARD to stay on top of my schedule! This you guys was my biggest struggle, and something I did not do in 2018 that really affected me as a mom and a business . I have not found my personal perfect system , but I am getting there and the change feels so good!
ALREADY I have almost prebooked out Feb. Which was my Jan goal .
So I guess what I am saying is be kind to yourself, tomorrow is a new Day . Maybe start early with some gratitude!
Hope you all had a awesome HUMP day!
Always looks way to cute with his backpack and lunch box!
