Lately I’ve been running on empty. I’m so tired my tired is tired. I absolutely love blogging, but if I’m being honest, I was getting a little burnt out. When I really thought about it though, I was burnt out because I was burnt out with life in general.
I just started reading a book called The Parent Gap by Randi Rubenstein, and it is exactly what I needed. I’ll be sharing all about it next week, but I couldn’t wait to mention it already.
As I’ve shared before, Charlotte has been super difficult lately in terms of sleep. She’s anxious, highly sensitive, and fights her sleep tooth and nail. I actually had the opportunity to talk with Randi about it, and we’ve come up with a plan to get things back on track. Stay tuned!
We’re hitting the reset button on ALL the things right now. You know how sometimes you have to shut down your computer and reboot? It always makes it run better when you turn it back on, right? That’s what I’m doing right now.
I want to be excited again all the things I’m passionate about. Don’t you? When you’re drained, physically and emotionally, you can’t do that though. You need to take a time-out for yourself and reboot. Think about what YOU need to do to make yourself better. Is it an hour to yourself at night? Is it chatting with your best friend? Is it working out? Whatever it is, just do it! Make it part of your day. Schedule yourself in. I promise it will be worth it. Come up with a plan and stick to it.
There are so many moving parts when you have a family, and it takes a lot of time and energy to make things run smoothly but it can be done. We can do hard things.
So let this do this! Let’s remember what makes us happy and hit the reset button to get us back to that.
