I remember years ago when my oldest son was in diapers and I had not had a good night’s sleep in what felt like decades. Every morning I would hug my coffee mug like a life preserver in a stormy sea and think about how much easier my life would be 20 years from now.
I was wrong. My life is not really easier, I have a full life. Having a second child a little later in life turn things a bit upside down and crazy. Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed I just make coffee for the sheer comfort of knowing I still can! Sometimes I ride the storm like a veteran captain of a battleship, sure of myself and my crew, tackling even a hurricane without a blink of an eye. This is life, it is real, it overwhelms, it screams, it soothes and it can be quite interesting if you just learn to laugh about all of it and enjoy the journey.
So let get to our challenges today and then have a bit of fun relaxation.
- Empty out all the trash cans in the house. ( yes, I have a thing about trash, haha)
- Clear the clutter off the floor in the messiest room in the house.
- Empty and reload dishwasher or wash a sink full of dishes.
Now enjoy a nice glass of cold green tea, a warm cup of comforting coffee or a big glass of ice water and take a peek outside and if you are feeling particularly happy why not take a short walk and enjoy mother nature for a bit.
