EMBRACE YOUR SEASON OF LIFE
How do you create in flow when you have kids taking up all your time?
I had this question come up after my keynote speech at the Beautiful You Inspiration Day and I have so much more to say about the topic.
To be honest, it’s hard! To get into flow, I like having a decent stretch of time to slip into the zone.
It’s hard when you get interrupted all the time because. Kids.
It’s hard when all your time is spent dealing with kid stuff, appointments, cleaning, feeding, dealing with all the things! Plus how freaking SLOW they are to get anything done just to get out of the house!
embrace this season of your life
I’ve found the biggest tension came when I was looking at all the things I LACKED because of kids. Instead of flipping that around and EMBRACE this season of my life.
By embracing it, you focus on finding a solution. On finding a way forward using what you have. Instead of focusing on the lack and gaps and ‘if only’
WHAT IF KIDS WAS YOUR SECRET TO YOUR SUCCESS?
It means you really learn to weave your work and creations with your life and kids. And art is so much richer when it has your life woven into it!
WHAT IF THE LACK OF TIME WAS A GIFT?
It means you don’t have any time margin to overthink. There is no room to doubt and question every step. You have to strip all the fluff down to just the core. The meaty value that you can create and give.
I wrote the above in the minutes I had spare while keeping watch at the playground - then I got interrupted because...#mumlife
I saved this thinking I’ll add more that I had bubbling up later.
There is no adding later! The magic and flow is gone. But also the perfect demonstration of the ‘do it now’ practice.
It’s short and no room/time to add more fluff and flair. Just the message and that’s it.
Gotta go! Bub is calling!
You keep telling yourself Someday...
You keep telling yourself Tomorrow...
You keep wishing you had 'more time' or 'the magic bullet answer - the secret shortcut'
You keep saying 'if only I was.....more / better / good enough'
You keep wishing 'if only.... you could change your life, your family, your skills, your circumstances....'
