Happy Sunday All!!
Hope you had a wonderful and productive week! I think we should use Sunday to reflect over the past week instead of fretting over the week to come.
I love Sundays. Its a day of rest and breakfast with everyone including hubby. We get to go for drives with no purpose really, just go and do as we see the day unfold. Its a day where we can set out new goals for the coming week. To start a fresh and re-organise your mind.
Yesturday I caught myself done with chores and sorting the kids by noon giving me 2 hours to leisure till hubby got home from work and I thought to myself have I done everything? Shouldn’t I be doing something…Then I realised that only a year ago I was so busy didn’t have time to relax. I had a 3yr old toddler with a one yr old and didnt know my left from right. And the year before that I had a new born with a 2 yr old toddler and had so many fears. And now look!
I am ontop of things, well most of the time now. My house is neat and cleaned daily by myself. I’ve been baking and cooking more dishes. I get so much more time with the kids, utterly enjoying them.
It got me noticing about all the other things I’ve achieved without noticing. The things that nobody gives you a certificate or a ‘hooray’ for. The non-tangible, abstract bits of life that you either nail or flop at. You have to really think about if, but you’ll find them.
In the last 12 months I have done a lot of things I’m proud of that I didn’t notice before. I have nailed my morning and night routine that helps me with a productive day. I have nailed the load of laundry a day challenge, I iron and pack away the said load that very same day. My anxiety is better managed. I have a blog now that I am quite excited about. The home is quite tidy and bath routines are on point. Good for me. I have done pretty well. It doesn’t deserve a huge Hi 5 just to acknowledge that progress is made. Think of things you completely bossed at this past year and give yourself a tap on the back coz you so deserve it!!
I do have a ton of goals that I flop at but hey, persistance is key right? And one day I will achieve them.
So don’t be so hard on yourself 😘 you doing the best you can sweety!
