Hello everybody! I hope you guys are well.
Spring finally made an appearance yesterday, but in my opinion, it felt more like Summer. It was hot. I don’t like hot and my body and mind are not ready for this weather. At least not yet. My husband made a comment the other day that we don’t get to experience days that stay in the 60’s or 70’s weather wise. No, it goes from 35 degrees one day to 80 degrees the next. What the freak? I haven’t even started packing away the winter clothes and looking for the summer ones.
It takes me awhile to adjust to the warmer weather because I’m an introvert, but my children prefer to be outside so I start negotiating with myself. Take them outside for a little while because it’s nice. At least 45 minutes, that’s not too bad. You can handle that. Repeat a couple of more times throughout the week until you’re ready to venture out more. This is how my mind works. This is how I convince myself to go outside, even though every fiber in my body wants to stay indoors, but I do it for my daughters because they do need some fresh air, sun, and outside playtime fun/exercise. And I guess I need some of that as well, but don’t quote me, please.
Speeding down the block
Scooting and three wheeling
As parents we sacrifice a lot and going outside your comfort zone may not seem like a big sacrifice (or deal) to some people, but it is to me. I’m working on myself and trying to evolve for my little family. I have a lot of quirks a.k.a. fears that I’m trying to conquer little by little, at my own pace, and I know it can be frustrating to some of my family members and friends, but in the famous words of Popeye (remember him?) “I yam what I yam.”
Please take it and don’t leave it.
Take good care all.
Until next time…
This really resonated with me, today. Like you, I am trying to make some changes that are smaller (but hopefully more lasting)–I tend to be a drastic and epic sort of person–hubby has to continually remind me “you are a work in progress. you will never be perfect. celebrate the small victories.” Here’s to conquering just one thing, today, my friend #WaterGlassLiftedInAir
Aw, thank you very much. You have a smart hubby there. I like what he tells you, especially “celebrate the small victories.” Here’s to you conquering one thing as well, my friend. Cheers!
