Yes, summer is definitely here, and yes, everything looks brighter:-) I have spent a lot of time contemplating my new life situation with kids and commitment, and it has probably been obvious to you readers that I have had problems adapting. Starting this blog has been of great help. I am better at putting things into perspective and finding a balance. As a result I feel more and more like my old self, happy and exited about life. I should not underestimate the influence of a regular yoga practice, and all the fun plans for the near future as a major factor in this happiness, but in the end it is me who makes this fun stuff happen. When I say fun it is everything from my “play” list (see earlier post) like traveling, extreme sports, adventure and outdoor activities. And my summer plan is filled with them!
What does all this investment in my own time give me? It gives me that extra thing which makes me a good mother. A patient, happy, loving and caring mother and wife! I believe that being a little selfish is a good investment in the happiness of the people around you:)
Stay tuned for some summer fun:-)
I couldn’t agree with you more. Good luck finding your balance. It sounds like you’re already on the right track.
