Last week I launched my new photography website, I am up, running and so excited about this new adventure. The thing that is so interesting to me is how I never would have thought the time to do it would be now, with a five month old in the house.
But things happen, decisions are made and you realize that you just have to go with the flow and listen to what the universe is trying to tell you. So, I did. And so did my husband. And the time is now.
This past week we have been working hard on how to manage this new job in our lives. I have to admit, things are pretty disorganized and crazy around here, especially with the feeding woes I have had with Eli but now he’s playing and can be distracted and going to bed earlier, so I am finding MORE time to do things.
I sneak in time to work when I can and I sneak in the rest of my life, when I can, too. Yesterday, I was so hungry, working at my kitchen table, I looked on the floor and saw a cheerio. Without thinking, I picked it up and popped it in my mouth.
Once I tasted how stale it was, I had a few thoughts - 1. How sad that I just ate that. 2. When was the last time I swept the floors? 3. That was so much easier than sweeping the kitchen floors.
My new found available time is also dedicated to school work for the kids and all of the other household items I was unable to do before. It’s a balancing act, this life is, I’m constantly testing out new ways to do things, tweaking our routine and trying to be as flexible as possible.
Some days, I don’t stop moving from the moment I wake up until the moment I lay my sleepy head on my pillow but it’s those days that I realize just how happy and lucky I am to be doing exactly what I want to be doing.
