I was inspired by another blogger to take on a challenge for August. For better or for worse, I’m going to blog every single day. Okay, maybe not weekends… we’ll see. Regardless, that’s still a lot of days, and more than I typically do, so a challenge it is. Why do this, considering not many people even read this blog? It’s more for myself. Maybe I’m hoping that by forcing myself to do something even when I feel like I have nothing to say it will maybe give me some kind of motivation to tackle some other things.
Lately I’ve been feeling like I need to re-evaluate a lot of things and really look at my priorities and where they are right now vs. what they should be/need to be. At the moment I only have so much time in a day and I’m often torn during the hours that are considered “free” on how to best spend that time. I think that is the hardest part of parenting, to be honest. There are many times when I really, really want to just sit down with a book, but I’m being pulled in different directions to do other things that, let’s just be honest, aren’t necessarily what I want to do, but my kids do. One day I’m going to make certain I have more time with my kids so that in turn I have more time for myself as well. One day, I will be able to drive my kids to school and pick them up in the afternoon and spend the majority of the summer with them rather than them being in day care. One day I’m going to do something that makes me feel fulfilled and proud.
