Have you ever just drawn a blank when you start to do a project? And instead of one thought and bright idea after another flowing through your creative juices – it’s pretty dry?
That’s me today. This doesn’t happen very often – but for some reason – I find myself staring out the window at the gorgeous blue sky, feeling the gentle breeze and the bright sunshine – and daydreaming.
But – hey! Maybe that’s just what I actually should be sharing with all of you.
For if this happens to you – accept it.
Change your plans. Listen to what your mind and body are telling you – and don’t feel guilty about it. (Unless, of course, on that very day, your job, your child’s birthday party, your in-law’s visit depends on it!)
This is something that every parent certainly needs to heed. Parenting takes physical, mental, and emotional stamina – and sometimes – you’re running low.
I am suggesting – on those days – you slow down, choose peace, nourish well in food, water, sunshine, rest, play and find a way to just “be” with your children – simply.
Thanks! That settles it. I think that’s what I’ll do.
C’mon, Tootsie! Let’s go outside!
