Clearly I am leaning towards more the of the sucking side in terms of having lived up to my promise to self to blog more.
I made a few such promises to myself. One being blogging, I do love writing. The second being exploring different ways of working out. I’ve grown away from the gym environment lately. I love weight training, I’m just not digging the gym itself. And so I have been. It’s been fun. My third, my game changer is this:
Two simple words have changed the way I am experiencing my life.
I am really enjoying my time. I’m relaxing on things that used to make me uptight ( laundry) and just giving myself permission to take time out and play. The kids and I have ” wii battles”. They may be six and seven but they are fair game when it comes to wii!
We’ve been enjoying board games or just playing outside in the snow. Regardless of what I’m ignoring in order to create time to do this, I’m really happy right now. I know in a blink of an eye these moments will pass. I see my eldest already wanting more time with her friends vs her amazingly cool mom. It’s going to happen and there isn’t much I can do about that. That said, there is much about what I can do now. And so I am, one playful moment at a time.
I’m really grateful I took the time out to write for myself today. That said, I’m anxious to log off and get back to playing. Just writing about it confirms that this new motto is changing the way I feel about my life. I’m experiencing it, not just navigating through it. This is new for me. It’s my new norm…I’m absolutely loving it.
Log off time!
Wishing you a wonderful and playful day,
