Now I have been seeing a lot of videos and reading blog posts on how to be more productive. And at first I thought yes I need to know this, I need to work out how I can fit even more into my already packed day…so I was studiously taking notes on what I could do different and yes I have learnt a thing or two. However it wasn’t until I was relaying to a colleague at work my weekend activities that she said to me…”my goodness you do fit a lot into your weekends….your constantly on the go!” I thought about it and she had a point, I am always on the go, before work, at work, at home in the evenings and on the weekend! But hey I can handle it I’m being productive, right?
Are the killer of dreams! And that is what I have been doing a lot of over the last few weeks I have been over thinking everything, especially with my blog and YouTube videos. I have been doubting my abilities. I believe I spoke about this before in one my videos (Empower yourself by knowing Yourself – press here to view it).
To My Darlings,
You are each my heart beat, my reason for being. I want the best of everything for you all. I have high hopes for you. My dreams for the future for the three of you are to be happy, joyful, enthusiastic and energetic about life. I want you to achieve far and above what I have achieved. I want you to make those right choices about friends, future partners and careers that will make you look back at your life and beam with joy and fulfillment. I want everything good in the world for you and more. I don’t want you to be afraid of failure or of taking a wrong turning, because I know that the strength of God is in you to guide you and you will be true to your soul and your true reason for being.
Do you feel that since you had a child/children there is always someone telling you how you should be doing it! – advice on what you are feeding your children, how you are holding them, how you are entertaining them, your general parenting style – blah blah…Now as long as you are caring for, feeding (healthy foods of course) and showing your child love and generally meeting their emotional and health needs then you and them are all good…right!
Do you stare enviously at those beautiful homes you see in the magazines, on TV, Pinterest, YouTube, where it is spotless, everything has a place and is in its place. The design is stunning… Then, You look up at your home and….why are all those toys chucked over there..why hasn’t hubby cleared up his things…or his special “chill out” corner looks disgusting…who left that mug there? Oh it was me…when I was chasing the kids up to bed last night and then couldn’t be bothered to come back down to clear up and just ended up pouring a glass of wine and taking that up to bed with me instead…
