Do you remember this post? Well, I think I'm slowly beginning to figure things out, I think I'm finding the way to make things work. I think perhaps for a while, I was a little too comfortable hiding behind excuses.
I just came off of a three week solo parenting block. Although we missed our guy, we did well. The kids were happy, I was happy, we found a groove and we went with it.
One thing I noticed is that when my husband is away, I sure can get a lot of sewing and shop work done. Perhaps it's because I am now practically getting a full nights sleep (baby J is only getting up once a night most nights), perhaps it's because I've made the commitment to take my shop to where I want it to go, I don't know. All I know is that whatever it is,
I phoned my mum the other day to tell her that if I, or anyone else says that I can't do it, to remind them of the past three weeks, because these three weeks are proof that yes, I can do this!
Now, will it always go this smoothly, will I always have this much energy, will I always be this full of zest....probably not, it's not being negative, it's just reality.
Sometimes I'll have to go searching for that little burst of energy, sometimes I will have to give it a little more effort, sometimes I'll need inspiration to get going again, what I do know is that the desire is there. I will probably sew/work less when my husband is home than when he's away, but that's ok. I just have to make sure I keep it somewhat consistent, right?
I have goals I want to meet, I have dreams I want to come true, and because of that, I will do my best to make them a reality!
