I was lucky enough to see my mentor on my trip to the city last week. I am glad that I was able to make it happened. (I love seeing how the things I write down come to fruition #ThoughtsBecomeThings).
She mentioned to me to enjoy my time off (Maternity Leave) because she could see the gears turning as I was talking to her about my thoughts for when I return. She suggested to me to make a plan and set a date and then not to think about any of that until that time. She told me to enjoy my time off (not really time off but you know) and enjoy my family.
I am – totally and completely.
Yesterday I walked back from the baby’s library program in the beautiful 24 degree weather with the sun shinning down and I couldn’t have been more content and present.
And I realized that part of me enjoying my time is having something to look forward to and something to achieve for myself. I need this to feel like myself. And if I don’t feel like myself, I won’t be happy. And if a mom isn’t happy than it’s not a good thing for anybody.
So this is just a reminder to myself, to keep having goals (small daily wins and big audacious dreams) keep doing me so I can take care of myself and my family.
