I started out today as a normal Monday. Waking up disoriented shortly after the alarm went off. Moving a bit slow. A short while later I looked up at the clock and had a quick panick. Places to be!! Put some hustle on to get everyone fed and get my coffee down. I wasn’t in a bad mood, but had to get everyone fed, dressed and packed up to get out the door. Looking forward to the days activities on my way to my appointment I was in traffic thinking how nice it was not to have to deal with this on a daily basis.
My beginning of the week overwhelm started to set in thinking of everything I had to do. Couple deep breaths later I calmed down, this is why I schedule as much as possible. There will always be things that come up, don’t go as you planned, take longer than planned or whatever. Two kids under two, I’ve learned to pivot pretty well. I used to be someone who dreaded Mondays to the point that it almost ruined my Sunday. I”ve larned to think about the good things I have going instead of the note so great that I can’t control. Insce I’ve learned to do that, my MOndays haven’t been quite as bad.
