It has been a while ya’ll.
But I loathe those “I’m sorry I’ve not been blogging, life got busy, I promise I’ll be better” blog posts.
So let’s just acknowledge the ebs and flows of life and where we place our focus and move on.
I have been working like a mother trucker. So hard, in fact, that I haven’t even had time to finish my own website. How funny… A web designer without a website. Yep, that’s me.
But full time Mum-ing and business running is taking its toll for sure. I have a friend who’s training in life coaching and last week she and I had a little sit down to talk about values. I chatted about what my values are with her and one of the things that kept coming up was freedom and ‘me time’. Ha! Now any of you reading with a small human you’re responsible for knows that ‘me-time’ only happens when the kids are in bed. Now add a business to run into that 24 hour mix and you have me leaving Ethans room at 7pm and walking directly into my office to work until 11pm.
Leaving zero ‘me time’.
Which, it turns out, I need in order to function properly.
So as I quite like scheduling, lists and organising stuff, my pal the coach and I decided that it would be best to ritualise my ‘me time’ and make it a non-negotiable part of my week. So I chose Wednesday nights.
Once Ethan’s in bed 7pm on a Wednesday, instead of marching to the office, I’m going to swan into the bathroom and have a nice Lush bubble bath instead. Even just typing this makes me wish it was Wednesday already.
I’m looking forward to it so much. And I feel like scheduling a breather mid week will help me recharge for the midnight shifts ahead.
How about you guys, do any of you have scheduled ‘me time’? If not, would you consider it?
Love and pumpkin spice everything,
