This past summer did not go at at all like I had planned for it to play out. Visits to all the libraries in our library system, exploring city parks, summer schooling, baking with the kids – very little of it happened like I had hoped.
Why? Because I was feeling anxious. It zapped my energy and my motivation to get up and go.
The kids picked up on how I was feeling and would mirror with their own set of behaviors. Let’s just say it was more a summer of “here is how you make your own cereal for breakfast, and yes you may watch Netflix for a few hours.” FWIW: we are not cereal eaters, and my kids actually do not like it a whole lot. However, they like doing things “by myself” and did okay with this scenario. There were also days with shakes and breakfast sandwiches, so they were not completely left to their own devices. 😉
The good news is I am working on getting things back to where they were, one step at a time. I have changed several things, tried to take on a new outlook, asked for help, and shared with others what was going on.
All of these steps have helped, but there is still a ways to go before I get to where I want to be.
Does life have you feeling stressed? Overwhelmed? Are you looking to get back in control of life, rather than reacting after the fact? If you are not sure where to start or are looking for extra encouragement, here is a great opportunity.
